Just Found Out I Passed Nclex!!

  1. Just got my license today!!!! I had 75 questions. It has been one week and three days, and I just found out that I passed.

    I'm celebrating tonight--you all know what I've been through. Nursing school isn't easy. I'm so happy to be in this profession!

    Congrats! I just found out that I passed too! I also had 75 questions, and had to wait 2 weeks for the results. It was the longest two weeks of my life! Now if only I can decide what specialty area I want to work in!!! LOL. Good luck to you, and I wish you only the best!

    When I sat for the NCLEX in July 1987 (four months post graduation), I did not receive my results for two months after taking the exam! So, having to wait two weeks -- or less -- is pretty darn good if that's all you grad nurses had to wait to get your results today! Of course, I didn't have the computer exam, I had the looooonnnnnggg two day exam where each nursing graduate had to pass with 1600 points MINIMUM before becoming a licensed registered nurse! You new grads have got it made in my book!

    CONGRATS! You're right! For me, nursing school was the hardest thing that I have ever completed!

    VERY GOOD!!!!

    I'm like Cheerful, I graduated in August, took state boards the end of September and found out the results in November!!!!

    Of course that was back in the Jurassic Period when dino-nurses ruled the earth!

    Congratulations to all of you! Now it is time to begin the Great Adventure! This"older than dirt" nurse took the first multiple choice (they had been essay!) State Board Exams (yes-examS) We spent two days in Chicago (the only test site in Illinois, and students were assigned dates to test) and took five tests in "each specialty". This was in mid October (year undisclosed). I got results on January 20. I shall never forget. At that time, passing score was 350 on each test in most states, but California and (I think)Florida required 500. The one good part was that, if you failed one test, that is the only one that you had to retake.
