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?
