    Just a heads up to those who haven't taken the NCLEX: I got a lot of infection control questions, prioritizing care questions (like which patient would the nurse see first?...what should the nurse do first?..etc.), and pharmacological questions. I also got a lot of the select all that apply. Remember I got all 265 questions. Again, good luck and don't give up if you don't make it the first time.

    SO i just got my results today and found out that i PASSED! Guess i shouldnt have been worried about getting the last question right- i was so sure i failed so this is such a huge relief! I also got alot of infection control, prioritizing and select all that apply questions- what a drag but thank god its over!! Good luck to all who are taking it soon- and i guess this does show that is is DEF possible to pass with 265 questions

    I took the test yesterday and I'm freaking out! I got the entire 265 questions! I was like, who does that really happen to??!!! Anyway, I kept getting a lot of prioritizing, pharm & select all that apply questions. I just figured I was doing bad at those! I'm worried....but trying to have faith in God. I just hope & pray that the nightmare of nursing school and NCLEX is finally over.

    I took my NCLEX RN exam yesterday, I walked into the testing site shaking with anxiety. As I walked in I seen one of my class peers walk out with his face red, and eyes totally wide. We were in the fingerprinting process and couldnt conversate otherwise they assume your cheating. All his lips said was I had 75 questions and that test was HARD. I panicked even more. I started my exam at 2:00pm and finished at 8:00pm. I almost passed out whe I got out my seat. I had 265 questions. Itotally feel I failed, althought topics were familiar I still felt stupid. It was so much select all that apply(SATA) I almost lost it! find out tomorrow!

    i just took the nclex-rn exam and i thought that i failed when i walked out of it. i sat there for 5 1/2 hrs. for all 265 questions!! i couldnt believe it all of my friends sat for below a hundred questions. i cried and was so upset that i failed. but when i read this blog about so many people that had all 265 questions and passed i had more faith in myself and became more confident to believe that i could pass. the nclex is challenging and the nerves that come along with it are tought. but you just have to be confident and believe in yourself. and those two days are hard to wait through but if you believe in yourself and you know your a nurse, youll pass. there is no greater feeling than knowing that you got through all of that. its amazing the day you pass! for all of you 265 questioners dont panic, there is hope and you will pass. Just know that you are a nurse and this is nothing compared to what you were meant to do... and that is to save a life. im praying for all of you that are waiting to hear your results, i know how it feels. :redpinkhe

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium]I joined the club yesterday. 265 questions... 6 hours of testing. It was awful! I finished with 2 minutes left. I don't know what to think... Initially I just knew I had failed. But after reading this thread I'm feeling more confident. We'll see... I find out in 4 hours!

    the key with 265q is to know the level of your last question. if the last question is a passing question, you passed, no matter if you answer it right or wrong. So if you get a question asking you about some sign/symptom of XYZ, that's a non-passing question. And question that requires you to use your critical thinking is a passing question!

    Good Luck!!

    [FONT="Arial Narrow"][FONT="Arial Narrow"]Hey. I just found out that I did not pass... As much as it sucks I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I just need to take a step back and regroup. For all of us who received 265 and fail just remember that we must have been doing something right because the computer didn't shut us off. I would rather fail at 265 than 75. Now we know what to expect and we can move forward! Congrats to those who passed! And for those of us who did not, it's time to keep our heads up! No stopping until we see those two letters at the end of our names!

    I took 265 questions today for the NCLEX. As soon as it went past 75 questions I started to freak out. All of my friends from class had talked about passing with 75 and how easy it was. Now I feel like an idiot because it was not easy for me. I was sooooo happy to hear that you could pass with 265 questions, hopefully I will be one of the lucky ones. I find out on tuesday, wish me luck!
