I'm a moron

I can't believe it. I took my NCLEX-RN yesterday. I studied so hard for it. I was scoring over 65% on all of my Kaplan and Saunders tests. I froze up from the beginning. I kept getting basic knowledge questions (how to use a cane properly, S/S of things like pheochromocytoma and hypokalemia, what would be normal: A. Vesicular beath sounds over the apices of the lungs, B. Bronchial breath sounds over the blah, blah, blah, etc.), and if I remember correctly, only a small amount of priority questions along with one or two "who would you put in a room with this patient." It shut off at 75. I don't even remember answering half of them. I can't believe it. I cried and cried and cried, and I never cry. I feel like crying right now. I just know deep down that I failed it. Not because it shut off at 75, but because out of those 75 questions, I didn't see anything like the types of questions that I have been preparing for. I kept getting what seemed like millions (although probably only 4 or 5) select all that apply. I just know deep down that I never made it to the higher level questions that are needed to pass.

I took my NCLEX-PN Friday, and I felt the same way. I only had the minimum of 85 questions, and I don't feel that I was close to answering enough right. I hope I find out by Monday since they are not open tomorrow. I was freaking out when I left my exam as well. Don't feel too bad. It seems that there are many of us that feel that we fail when we leave the testing center. Let's hope and pray that we passed though! I am trying to keep as much hope as possible. Especially, because I don't have much left. We are playing the waiting game now.

Take care.

Hey niceguyOH. If you have quick results in your state, you can actually check your results today. All the best, and let us know when you find out!

Oh, silly billy, you passed. Those are difficult questions, not basic.

I'll cross my fingers for you, but you don't need it.

"edited to add:" both posters, MightyMouse AND niceguy. You PASSED.

Keep in mind that the test is set up so that both passers and failers get around 50% right, so it's really not an issue of getting enough right. The issue that determines pass/fail is the difficulty level at which you're hitting the 50% mark.

await the results

hopes you passed

I'm thoroughly convinced that there is no rhyme or reason to it. I passed the NCLEX. I don't know how in the world that I happened. I was 100% sure that I had not. I even started getting money together and studying again to retake it next month, but looked on the CA BON website today and there it is. Prayer has to be the answer. There is no other way that I did it. Thank you all for your encouragement and kind words through the wait.

...CONGRATS!!!

The N-Clex was the strangest testing I have ever experienced, it was surreal, or maybe that was due to my nervousness. But so glad to hear you did it!!

Love & careplans!
