Took NCLEX Today

  1. First off I would like to say Congratulations to all those who recently took NCLEX and have passed.

    I took the nclex today and I have a REALLY, REALLY bad feeling about all of it. The test was really hard and I had the max. amount of questions which was 265. By the time I got to 150 questions I lost my concentration. I was taking breaths in and out but that was not working for me. I will have to wait until Wed or Thur before I find out. They say two business days if you are in a state with phone or online results. So does that two business days start today or do they start tomorrow for those of you who already took it.

    I need to relax. Today is my Dad's birthday and I am treating him out to dinner tonight and we are having a celebration for him so that will help me get things off my mind a little. I am getting ready to go shopping in a while and I am leaving my credit cards at home because I know in times like this I am really bad with impulse shopping.

    I will keep everyone updated.

    Breathebreathebreathe . Happy birthday to your Dad and try not to dwell on the test. We've all been there and most of us felt the exact same way. Keep us up on how you did!

    And wise move re: the credit cards!

    I feel for you.. all 265 questions ! Whew !

    But it means NOTHING either way.. just that you had to sit there and sweat longer than some of us.

    Keeping fingers and toes crossed for you, Peaceful !
    Enjoy tonight and try to focus on your Dad.. forget about the rest !

    I had a friend who took all 265. She said pretty much the same thing that she fell apart about halfway. But she passed. I was sure I failed the test. I passed.

    I don't think I've talked to anyway who came out of that room thinking they had a shot at passing.

    I've got my fingers crossed for you. Hang in there. I know the wait is horrible.

    Hey Tonya. I took the boards and I found out less than 48 hours later. In fact, it was 45. I took it 2 weeks ago. I thought I got about 4 right. It is a hard test. I know how you feel. Good thoughts going your way.
