Expect to feel AWFUL when you finish the NCLEX - but just know you probably passed

I am writing this thread after seeing so many other people feel exactly as I did when I finished the NCLEX. AWFUL.... I passed by the grace of God with somewhere between 75 and 80 questions (I am not sure exactly when it cut off because I was focusing so much on the questions), and no matter how much you prepare when that test stops you just have a sinking feeling in your stomach. I know I did...I felt like wait.... I'm not done. It was such an unsettling feeling. I almost wish that either during school or during some of the NCLEX review that they would have told us that this is normal and you are going to feel like this, because part of what makes it initially feel so bad is that we feel like we are the only ones who feel awful about how we tested when that is not usually the case. I know that when I got home that evening after the test, I just got in the bed and I didn't even answer my phone. It got so bad the next day, that I was actually thinking about what different review course I would take if I didn't pass (and I actually wanted to enroll in another one before I got my results... I know ridiculous). So I had to literally pray about it to get some peace about the situation regardless of how it turned out, and I PASSED and I cried when I found out. So.... hopefully this is encouraging to someone after they have taken the NCLEX.

Thank you so much for posting this. I took my NCLEX yesterday. I got about 170 something questions I think (I, too, can't remember) and I just felt horrible about it. I'm just hoping and praying that I'll have some good news in these upcoming days.

Thanks again...and congrats to you!

I know it probably sounds weird, but it really bugs me, when people say " dont worry you'll pass", I almost feel like they are jinxing me, yikes I need a study break. The best of luck to bebetisha :up::up::up:
