Failing the NCLEX at 77 Questions - page 3

Ok, Nervous wreck here. I just took the NCLEX this morning, and like a lot of you, I walked out feeling like I failed. It seemed like every other answer was wrong.. The computer shut down at 77... Read More

    Keep in mind that both passers and failers tend to get around 50% correct, so it's supposed to feel hard and overwhelming.
  2. by   jenrn2006 I know how you feel! I just took my NCLEX this morning; the most nerve wracking experience I've had since Nursing School! My test shut off at 160-----I was expecting that since I passed 75 that I'd get the whole 265! I don't know what to think; did I barely pass or was I so stupid that the computer gave up on me??? Some of the questions seemed really hard; and I found that I didn't use the Kaplan "decision tree" hardly at all!!!

    Our paper says we have to wait 2 business days to get the "unofficial" results. You can bet I'll be checking the website tomorrow and Monday. I already checked it this afternoon and it says my results are ready for delivery!

    Hang in there; that's all we can do at this point!

    Hi everyone!
    I have an assignment that it is nearing its due date. One of my professors have asked all of the nursing students to conduct a interview with a RN and I have been having the hardest time finding a RN who is willing to answer my questions, so if anyone would be interested in answering a couple questions about their career as a Nurse please PM me. I would really appreciate it!

    I had 77 questions too and I am just beside myself. I thought that I would be happy to be done, but instead I am sad and depressed. Seems everything is just down until I find out. And the CA BRN hasn't updated since Monday so I just sit here and wait. There is no quick results in this state (why? I don't know) but I just sit and wait and dread the answer as to did I fail???

    I just took my exam yesterday and it turned off on the 78th question. It was my second time taking the exam, and I believe I was actually more nervous than the first time. This is absolute torture, I was an excellent student as an Undergrad and I just don't understand why this exam was so hard for me. I'll find out tomorrow if I have to start telling all my family, "third time is the charm!" God, I hope I passed!!!:uhoh21:

    A 2 day wait is bad enough, I couldn't do a 2 month wait. And the CAT is bad enough, a 5 part test.... I just found out I failed it for the 2nd time so I'm regrouping and preparing to try yet another strategy of attack.
