What are the chances of passing NCLEX

  1. 0 if you answered 225-ish questions BUT time ran out. I"m just looking for a little hope.....BUT my nursing intuition tells me otherwise....

    thanks ~ Chris

    I took my NCLEX Oct 22, 07 and received 265 questions, and failed. I just retook them yesterday and received around 175ish, and found out today that I passed (my RN license number is posted on BON)! So, the number doesn't mean anything. I had 2 friends get 265 and both passed. Let me tell you, I seriously left yesterday thinking I failed, my last question was a drug calc that I missed, so I had myself convinced that I failed since I missed my last question, turns out that isn't true! Just keep positive and hope for the best. I have been in both situations, I felt the low of clicking on that link and seeing FAILED and the high I felt today when I logged in and saw REGISTERED NURSE! What a weight off my shoulders! Failing isn't the end of the world, just means you have to wait a few more weeks to retake it. I think for me waiting 6 months helped because I got more experience on the floor and was able to prioritize and apply on the test. Did you have alot of higher level questions? Like application, prioritization?

    Me again! Sorry, I just saw your comment about running out of time. The people at Kaplan say that if you run out of time they look at your last 60 questions, and if you were above passing standard then you will pass, if you dropped below the line they fail you.

    Please wait until you actually get your results, you may be pleasantly surprised. We have seen this over and over again.

    And if you did not pass, you do need to take a week or two just for yourself to regroup before starting to prepare again. Do not stress yourself out by starting any preparation again at this time.

    And do let us know when you get your results.

    The first tip of my program can be found in a sticky at the top of this forum, but again, please wait until you actually get the results. The number of questions on the exam does not determine if you passed or not. And most importantly, 85% pass the first time.

    Best of luck to you.
