    So...I have been reading posts on this forum for a few weeks, and it has helped me. But when I walked out of the testing center having only answered 75 questions, I almost had an aneurism.

    I took it 7/7 at 2 and my results should be up now. This post is just to express, before knowing, that I am very much in doubt. I got a lot of nutrition, who to discharge in an emergency situation and prioritization, 2 med calculations that were fill in the blank, about 5+ select all that apply, and many...many...pharm questions that I had never heard of. For the last 15 questions, I had to pee so bad that my molars were floating, but said "just make it to 75 and then take a break." At 75...there it screen.

    I have been a wreck for 2 days. And right NOW, I am going to the website to check my results. I am broke, and I start my job in a week and a half if I have a license...if not, its waitressing for me for the next 4 months.

    Congrats to all of those who have made it :spin:
    Wish me luck!

    ok! i am not an emotional person, but i am crying now...tears of joy because...

    i passed!!!!!!

    and i really had my doubts.

    good luck to everyone else. they are not testing your knowledge, they are testing to see if you can think like a nurse. sometimes i even wonder if there is 1 right answer...or if they just want you to be able to think critically under stress!!!!

    Aprilequinox, I knew you passed as soon as I read your first post. Your experience sounded IDENTICAL to mine--the type of questions you got, the # of questions you got, even the having to go pee so bad but waiting till 75 questions to take a break--and I passed. My heartfelt congratulations to you.

    Oh no, angiebaby2!! I'm so sorry. I just took my NCLEX today and I'm feeling as though I failed. I wish you the best... I know you will pass the next time. Hang in there. I wish we didn't have to go through this torture! As if nursing school wasn't bad enough!

    My thoughts are with you.

    My computer also shut off at 75........April, your test questions were similar to mine. I also got 2 math calc.....etc.....However I feel like i did not pass. I walked out of there in a blur. I remember walking out of there saying "oh my God!!" repeatedly.
