I took my test on Tuesday and I had 215 questions & I passed!!


Specializes in keeping all options open right now..

I took the NCLEX back in January, 2009. The terminal I was using sometimes had a lag between questions (okay, it seemed like an eternity, but was probably only a few hundredths of a second longer than usual) I attributed it to the time needed to search for the next question as the level of difficulty increased. The first time it happened, I was only on question 35, about 40 minutes into the test. Okay, about a minute or so for each question, I felt I was doing okay. Second time, it happened at question 59. Questions 65 and 70 also had those pauses. Just as I was resigning myself to the pauses, it happened where the one second lag became two seconds, then three, and then a message popped up saying to not touch the keyboard, test is processing...the test was over at 75 questions, and suddenly I wanted to vomit all over the keyboard. No, it couldn't be over! Where were all the med calc questions? What happened to all the multiple-multiple answered questions, or the ones about putting everything in order of priority?

Three days later I found out I passed.:nurse:

One of my friends who took the test the same day went to the very last question possible...and three days later found out she passed as well.

Although all of the NCLEX tests are the 'same', each experience is different!


Specializes in critical care.

I was freaking out too because I got absolutely no med. calc questions so I thought for sure I failed, Two days later I found out I passed... ( I had to pay $8 to get the unofficial results!)
