    Took the NCLEX on JULY 9th... got 75 questions. Thought I failed, I felt so bad. I was sick when I took the test, but 48 hrs later I FOUND OUT I PASSED... SWEET!!! Could not believe it, I am finally a RN.

    Got no med math which I am good at but one select all. OMG is was so hard. It is pretty amazing how 75 question can assess my nursing knowledge and say I am a competent Nurse.

    I also think I almost did 5000 practice questions.

    i'm in texas. i took the test monday and just found out i passed. i'm so happy!!!!!! i don't know how many questions i had. when i hit the button after answering number 75 and it didn't shut off, my heart sank. i think i was putting too much effort into thinking about every detail of every question. after #75, i just started going with the first answer that looked right. it took me 2 hours to get to 75 and only 10 minutes to get to 100 from there. that was the last time i looked at the number. the computer shut off shortly after that, so i'm guessing i got 110 to 120. it doesn't matter now though. all that matters is that i passed...and i can keep my job!!! good luck to all of you who are still waiting.

    Just found out I failed with 75 questions!!
    Oh Angie,


    ....double darn...

    edit: I see you are in the UK, I wonder if somehow the test is not actually 'internationally' applicable in that there are colloquisms from the US? bummer Obviously you "know" this, you are a nurse and will definately pass soon!

    Hi guys

    I also passed with 75 questions under 2 hours........I can not believe it...all praise to my God.

    I used kaplan.......question bank and trainer were the best...very hard...but most similar to the real thing.

    all the best

    I found out today that I passed too with 75 questions! Kaplan was the best preparation in my opinion. Saunders was too easy but a good starter to study, especially the content portions. I also believe in confidence and prayer!!

    I passed with 75 questions the first time. I used mostly Kaplan to study....had lots of priority and teaching questions. Also several meds, and about 5 check all that apply! Ugh! Glad it's over. Good luck to all who are studying or waiting!

    okay. so today i took my nclex and got 75 questions, as many of you got here. i got tons of check all that apply, prioritization, teaching and a lot of meds. i am freaking out, because i know that i got my last question wrong. i read a post somewhere saying that doesn't mean you failed, but i just can't stop thinking of the worst. i feel sick and i'm so scared, because i am working as a graduate nurse right now, and will be devistated if i didnt pass and would loose my job. thse 48 hours are probably the most stressful, that i have ever been thru. *please God, let me be one of the ones who passes at 75!*

    I only got 75 and I am a nervous wreck, it took me approximately 58 minutes.. When it shut off I actually jumped because it scared me. I, like a lot of you, didn't get any metrology questions. Most of my questions were pharmacology of drugs that I' have never heard of, alternate format, and prioritizing. I feel like I couldn't have done that good to pass after 75 questions and I also feel like I couldn't have done that bad to fail after 75 questions. So, I will be a nervous wreck until Thursday. Argh!!!
    I can't believe I just took the NCLEX!!!:uhoh21:

    ok so everyone is talking about how they passed in 75 questions, all my friends passed at 75. I had 110. Can anyone offer me some hope and tell me they passed in a number that was not 75 or 265? I know it doesn't matter.

    To top that off, my last question was easy I think. It was about teaching for hep a. But who knows what they consider high or low cognitive level questions.

    This is a terrible feeling. Especially since I have been working as a GN for two months already & I don't know what happens to my job if I fail.
