Do most people pass or fail?

Students NCLEX

Published most people pass the NCLEX on the first try? It seems that most people on this board are passing on the 1st try and with 75 questions. I am scared. I take mine on 7/11. Do those that have taken it think it was really that awful? Any insight helps. :uhoh21:

Nationally, the pass rate is approx. 80-85% for those taking the test for the first time. Lots of good info on the test plan and scoring at and Hope this helps.

Good luck to all of us. :)

I would think it depends on how long you have been out of school. If you take it immediately, then I would think the odds would be much greater since the imformation is still in the memory. The longer you wait, I would think the chances would decrease or at least be harder. I took mine on Wednesday, and I know that if I had waited till August like some of the people in my class, I wouldn't have remembered anything...or I would have gone completely crazy by then:chuckle
