Stressed waiting for results

  1. Hi - I just found this site today. After taking the NCLEX today, I am a mess and needed someone to talk to. The computer stopped after 75 questions. I thought it was so hard! I am going crazy. Everyone keeps dismissing my fears. I did well in nursing school so everyone thinks I am just dramatizing here. I really thought it was awful and will be so ashamed to face everyone if I didn't pass. Did anyone fail who had 75 questions? I am under so much pressure to pass because my husband just got laid off so I am the main income right now. If I fail, I have to go back to being an aide at half the pay. AAAAAAAAAAh!

    All you can do is wait!! I know it's touch waiting. I can tell you that if you shut off at 75 questions and you thought the test was hard, there is a very high likelihood that you passed! Let us know!

    Thanks Zach. I am feeling a little less stressed today. Unfortunately, I have to work tonight and I know everyone is going to ask how it went. This is torture and we only have to wait a few days. Some of my coworkers said they took 3 days to test and waited months for results. I saw another of your posts about difficulty finding a job. At our local hospital here, they start the GN program in June and any new nurse (including RNs) must take the program. I think they offer it again in January. If your local hospitals work the same, maybe that is why you haven't heard anything. One RN, who graduated in December, worked in a nursing home until the GN program started at the hospital. Have you tried surgi-centers or nursing homes? Good luck on your job search and please give me an update. I'll let you know in a few days if I passed or not. Christine

    I'm sure you did fine Christine... I think 75 questions is a good sign. But I hear where you're coming from, I felt the same way after I took mine.

    We're thinking of you! Let us know as soon as you hear!

    Mine shut off at 75 and I swore I failed. I was clueless. But I passed, and so will you.

    I passed!!!! I am so excited and relieved! I called during my lunch hour today along with 2 other people. They passed too with 75 questions, so I guess it is a good sign. Thanks for the support. Now I just have to root for the others in my GN program. Well, I am off to call my family with the news. I'll be back. This is a great board!
