I just took the NCLEX - PN, my thoughts. - page 52

I feel like burning most the LVN review books I bought as they did me no good what-so-ever on the NCLEX. The questions I got came out of left field. Stuff that wasn't taught in school like post... Read More

    I waited around 25 days to get my results. Find a hobby to get yourself distracted. I watched the entire first 3 seasons of greys anatomy while i was waiting.
    That's a good idea! I'm watching the first season of The Tudors.

    Hi all, i'm new here. Just wanted to say that i agree with the test being pretty easy. Took me about an hour to finish the entire thing. It stopped at 85. I really think the questions were plain and honest nursing questions. I live in california so it took me about 4 weeks for me to get my results, which is what killed me and also made me doubt myself, because i began to wonder why everyone would say the test was hard when i really didnt think so. Then i began to freak out because people kept telling me if the questions get progressively harder then it means you're answering them correctly but i really didnt see it that way so because of the long wait i became a tad discouraged. But anyway, got my results and i passed! Unfortunately now i have to wait 3-4 weeks to get the license itself. So that;ll be a nice long wait...i mean i've waited this long.

    Have faith in yourselves...pretty sure you all did very well!! :wshgrt:
    I thought the test was easy as well but I know that's a bad sign. I talked to some of my classmates and they said it was hard. I walked out of the testing center in an hour and wanted to take smack myself for not taking my time. Aarrgh! It's only been a week since I've taken the exam and I'm getting more discouraged each day. I hope it's a positive outcome.

    Everybody dont worry. I know it is not easy waiting. I even doubted myself at times. I told my Nursing Director that I thought the test was really easy. She told me that she never has heard anyone say it was easy in her whole nursing career (30 years). Well I guess I was her first. Best to luck to everybody. I have talked to people in my class that have taken the test questions ranged from 85-205 and all of them have passed. So dont worry.

    Wow Congrats Tiffee,
    how many questions did you get? was there alot of pharm ?

    Thank you so much. I had between 92 and 96. I don't exactly remember what the number was. I looked down at the counter at 92 and then a couple after that it shut off. There was pharm but there was also diet. Go in there feeling confident. I also took a crash course the week before. I didn't even open one of the review books that I bought. Good Luck! WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    "I took the Nclex PN today. I feel ill. It stopped at 85 and I was so hoping it would way pass question 85 'cause I really did not answer the questions properly. I had tons of SATA, and about 3-4 calculations. Drugs I can't even recall ever reviewing. My friend who passed swears I passed, but in my heart of hearts I don't really believe so. I'm reading this thread out of sheer desperation looking for comfort and solace. I'm not hysterical right now 'cause I don't want my daughter to see me so unhappy and defeated. If I could cry a million tears right now, I could. I honestly feel like I have a bad hangover with out the pleasure of the party. What kind of physical ailment is that? If by some odd way I passed, it will truly be a miracle. If I failed, I will subscribe to Kaplan and get more detailed about side effects of meds and patient teaching. Fortunately, I don't have to wait a month for the bad news. I find out Monday or Tuesday on the 14th or 15th. I'll post my results when I get them." ... Hi, it's "The day after"...I posted this on another thread, and got no responses so I'm reposting here. Congratulations to all you confirmed new nurses! I can't believe I've been a member here 'since 06... It brings home the fact that I and my family have given up a lot for me to get to this point of just waiting and it all depends on ust 85 questions.. I feel a little better today. If I have to redo the test I will. Maybe I will know my results by tomorrow or Tuesday nite, the latest. I'm sorry, this is overlong. I'm obsessing. Oh another thought, I thought some of my questions were easy but the choices were so difficult to distinguish as to which was the best answer. So, there you go, God Bless us all!
