Just finished my nclex freaking out!

Just got home from my exam and not sure how I should feel!! Three hours 168 questions 27 SATA (with my last two questions being those) and a horrible feeling in my stomach. Took kaplan qbank 7 last night and scored a 72% I'm terrified of taking that exam again! Can anyone offer any advice?

I just got back from taking my exam for the second time. I had 75 questions, I don't know how may SATA but it felt like a million. No advice now all you can do is wait

Advice? Yes. Stop freaking out; it has never been known to help anyone.....ever :)

The number of SATA questions is irrelevant. They are merely a format option.

If your State participates in Quick Results, you can get them 48 hours after the completion time of your exam. Costs eight bucks and well worth it, IMHO.

In the meantime, launch yourself into a project to keep your hands and possibly your mind busy: clean out your closets. Clean out the fridge. Organize the Clutter Room of your house. Clean the bathrooms. Anything that helps divert your attention for awhile.

Good luck!

I also took my exam this morning.

75 questions- less than 10 sata, lots of priority like lots!, one ekg, one delegation, ...yea I think that's all

I felt it was so much content questions. ...it was tough

I left feeling like this is crap especially stopping at 75.

I'm not doing the pearson trick, I rather wait.

I'm so tired from all this nclex stress and studying all the time that I just don't have a feeling

The only thing that going 168 questions tells me is that you were very close to the pass/fail line. That is the only thing that tells me. It is also the only thing it tells you. It also means that from question number 108 you are either clearly above or below the past fail line and it took that long to determine whether or not you passed or failed. I hope you noticed that I did not say that you passed, or that you failed, because there is no way to tell either way. Freaking out at this point is going to be entirely nonproductive and will not change your outcome on the NCLEX. The results are what they are.

Since you just finished the exam today, give it at least 24 hours before you attempt the PVT (be ready to spend $200) or give it about 48 hours from now and try the Quick Results, if your state participates. Being that most states also participate in NurSys, you can also check the NurSys system to see if your license has popped up there or in your state's own licensing website if they have one that updates fairly frequently. Given about 24 hours for that to start happening.

You have had a tough day, take some time for yourself and resign yourself at this point to the understanding that anything you do right now will not affect the outcome. It's a tough exam, go pamper yourself!

Used an expired gift card and it said invalid card...so that's a way of saying I failed in pVT trick translation

Wish you all the best of results

Try to breathe. I think the period between taking the test and getting the results was the WORST. Worse than nursing school, worse than finals, worse than studying, worse than taking the exam. I swear, I left PV and got wine and cheesecake and stalked AN and the state website until it was posted, thankfully in less than 48 hours in my case. No good can come from stressing out. I agree with RNsRWe- distract yourself in any way possible. Don't overanalyze your questions, because it's SO easy to psych yourself out, and ratios and numbers mean nothing. I was POSITIVE I'd failed, even though my questions were mostly delegation and prioritization. Thankfully I passed.

Good luck!!
