    It means it only took you 85 questions for the computer to decide you know enough to be a licensed nurse.

    Or you missed so many there is no way you could have passed so it shut off.

    The first scenerio is the most common and I hope that is the case with you.

    artemis.....standard "minimum" number of questions for an lpn is now 85 questions, and 75 for an rn. i sorta remember that from our cram sessions at my school.

    good luck!
