NCLEX... I feel horrible

  1. Well the exam is over and I'm feeling horrible.
    My anxiety got away from me.... I was never even able to keep it under control. At one point one of the exam proctors told me to just relax and read the questions....

    I think I failed... I ended up having about 170 questions.... I couldn't wait for it to be over with.......

    Its stupid for me to ask if anyone failed with this amount of questions......

    I'm soooo down right now.......and I feel like a cat on a hot tin roof.....

    Dont count yourself out till the evidence is in front of you! I have no clue about numbers of questions to pass or fail, but if it doesnt work out to your favor look at it as another opportunity. You will take it again if it doesnt go the way you need it to, you will succeed and it could be you are fine anyway.
    We all felt like we bombed after the test was over i think. There is just no way of knowing. Just remember everyone doesnt pass the first time, it doesnt make you any less competant to be a nurse. Keep you head up and keep moving forward.

    Hang in there. A friend in nursing school and I took the exam together. My computer stopped at 75 questions and hers at 275! We were both convinced we failed.

    We both passed on the first try.

    The number of questions has nothing to do with guessing if you passed or failed.
