mt nurse. I took mine this morning at 8am as well. I felt the same way...it really was not that bad. Don't know if that is a good thing or not. My status of my test still says ready for delivery so I can't try the pearson vue trick.

About 2 hours after my test, I got a call from the hospital and they want me to do interviews for three different positions, so maybe that is a good sign :mad:

I was bummed out because I had a ton of lab values memorized and I didn't get any lab value questions. LOL! Go figure.

The only thing I can really tell you is to take your time, really read the question and figure out what they are asking before you answer. If you encounter a question that you have no idea about, DO NOT PANIC...I did this and got myself all upset, thought I failed, etc...but I passed...Oh and don't pay any attention to people in the room who are finished before you, it doesn't mean anything...just keep going and stay calm...GOOD LUCK!

hi everyone. just got home. i took my NCLEX this morning at 8am. i was nervous going in. but once i started taking the test...it was just like another kaplan qtrainer test. of course this was a bit more challenging just because i felt like two answers were right. so i was answering questions and just kept reminding myself to take my time and read each question carefully. as i was approaching question 75...i was getting anxious. when i was looking at question 76 and the questions kept coming..i was bummed because at that point i wasn't sure how long i'd be in there for.

after i answered question 89 and hit next, the computer shut off. i saw the blue screen. hoping it wasn't just a glitch..i was waiting for the exit survey. and sure enough i saw it. i was relieved. but another part of me was worried..."how could i be done this soon!?!" i've been studying non-stop for a month..and in two hours..it's over, just like that??

i'm really nervous. i'm not panicking and going crazy like others have posted here. but, i'm still nervously awaiting my results. i really hope that i passed!!! it's so hard because you can't do anything to calm yourself down. the NCLEX is so unpredictable. its either i stopped at 89 because the computer said "ok, she knows her stuff". or....i stopped at 89 because the computer decided "she doesn't know anything!".

i want to pass. i just want my license already. keep me in your prayers everyone!!

good luck to those who have yet to take it. and congrats to those who have passed!!

dodo102 I will be praying for you to pass! Don't focus on the number that the computer stops at. Know your lab values and prioritization (ABCs, Maslow). The day before the exam don't do anymore studying but do things that you find fun and relaxing. Also, stay off of these boards until after the exam! Reading about who passed and who failed, etc will only add to your anxiety level. The day of the exam eat a good breakfast with some protein and complex carbs. Get to the test center early and walk around a bit before going in. They may tell you that you can test before your scheduled time so don't let it catch you off guard. Use the restroom before you start your exam. Remember to breathe and take your time answering the questions. If you are stuck on a question, narrow it down to the 2 best answers then go with your gut. Last but not least, pray and put your full trust in God who is always faithful!

yesdog-That is too funny. And to think I lost so much sleep over those stupid lab values. But, at least now we will know them for work. When did you test, and did you find out your results yet?

I found out today that I PASSED!!! Woot Woot!!! :D

Congratulations!!! I took mine on thursday, but won't find out until next week, but I am almost positive I passed. If I didn't pass, then there is no way I will every become an ICU nurse.....because I would be too much of a dope! Ha! Ya, I'm glad I finally learned the lab values, but I know I will still be looking up dang drugs for a long time! They fall out of my brain as soon as I get them in! I was lucky on the test. I got a bunch of asthma drugs and I have asthma! I got HTN drugs and my mom has HTN! Ha! I guess God was shining down on me!

No quick results in CA....I have to wait! BOOO!! But, I start my new grad program in the SICU on Monday!
