Took the NCLEX-RN today, but don't feel so good about it...

  1. Hi everybody. As the title reads, I don't feel great about the test I took today. I know that nobody will be able to tell me (with certainty) how I did, but one of the biggest reasons I don't feel I did well is because I never came across any dosage calculation or units conversion questions.

    Today was my 1st time taking the NCLEX, and the test stopped after good-old question 75, about 65 minutes into my testing. Since I don't know all the details of this test, my worries could be unfounded, but I'm just used to having at least a few math problems every 100 questions or so (from my practice testing). This situation makes me think that I did so poorly in one of the other testing categories that I didn't even get to try out whatever category you would find math under.

    Anyways, what do you guys think? I'm in California, so I don't get to find out my results in 3 days. I'll be stuck wondering for a while.

    Relax - you got through the test and that's an important step. I took the NCLEX a long time ago so can't answer to the specifics of the math part. I wish you luck...

    I was sure I failed mine, too. I passed with 75 questions, and didn't have one med or calculation question. Most of mine were about priotizing and delgation.

    I'd tell you not to worry about it, but I drove everyone around me crazy for days until I got the results.

    I had no math, lots of delegating, ABG's, psych, and mother/baby. You are probably fine.

    So this makes me feel a little better . Now I'm worried about pediatrics , so here is a quick question for you guys. I came across a couple of development questions that referred to (it was an answer choice anyways) a lordotic curve as a part of the development of a 12-15 month-old child.

    I didn't choose this answer because I don't remember "lordotic curve" being mentioned in class when studing peds. Does this sound familiar to any of you as being part of normal growth and development (of a 15-month old)?

    Yup........the typical toddler has a large head, short stubby legs and prominent belly, which produces a swaybacked effect, hence the terminology.
