Just do tons of practice questions and remember to concentrate on nursing interventions.

I took the NCLEX this morning and hoped it would stop at 85 questions, since everyone seems to be telling me that, it is a guaranteed pass. I really pray to GOD that I passed, because I worked hard. Does anybody know of any people that stopped around a 100 and passed?? I'm so nervous for the results. THANKS!!Last edit by SAS23 on Apr 25, '08 : Reason: codes
