    Hi everyone! Good luck to those of you who have taken the test ad are waiting on results! I myself take the test tomorrow at 8am. So, wish me luck too, please?

    I feel pretty good about it. Was really super nervous and anxious about a week ago, but when I felt anxious, I studied more which helped.

    I will keep you all posted. In the mean time, pray for me too!!

    well, i just got back from my nclex exam at 8am. it shut off at 75, and i'm not too sure how i did. but i'm not crying and that's what's important! haha...

    i can't believe there were at least 10 meds in my exam...just asking what relief or what to look out for... i've never even seen most of those meds in my entire nursing career...not even in pharm!

    hopefully, i passed. i can only pray now.

    good luck to everyone else!



    hint: study infection control!! i had a lot of those and i've seen many others say that their exam had a lot of it as well.

    mt nurse. I took mine this morning at 8am as well. I felt the same way...it really was not that bad. Don't know if that is a good thing or not. My status of my test still says ready for delivery so I can't try the pearson vue trick.

    About 2 hours after my test, I got a call from the hospital and they want me to do interviews for three different positions, so maybe that is a good sign

    I was bummed out because I had a ton of lab values memorized and I didn't get any lab value questions. LOL! Go figure.

    The only thing I can really tell you is to take your time, really read the question and figure out what they are asking before you answer. If you encounter a question that you have no idea about, DO NOT PANIC...I did this and got myself all upset, thought I failed, etc...but I passed...Oh and don't pay any attention to people in the room who are finished before you, it doesn't mean anything...just keep going and stay calm...GOOD LUCK!

    hi everyone. just got home. i took my NCLEX this morning at 8am. i was nervous going in. but once i started taking the test...it was just like another kaplan qtrainer test. of course this was a bit more challenging just because i felt like two answers were right. so i was answering questions and just kept reminding myself to take my time and read each question carefully. as i was approaching question 75...i was getting anxious. when i was looking at question 76 and the questions kept coming..i was bummed because at that point i wasn't sure how long i'd be in there for.

    after i answered question 89 and hit next, the computer shut off. i saw the blue screen. hoping it wasn't just a glitch..i was waiting for the exit survey. and sure enough i saw it. i was relieved. but another part of me was worried..."how could i be done this soon!?!" i've been studying non-stop for a month..and in two hours..it's over, just like that??

    i'm really nervous. i'm not panicking and going crazy like others have posted here. but, i'm still nervously awaiting my results. i really hope that i passed!!! it's so hard because you can't do anything to calm yourself down. the NCLEX is so unpredictable. its either i stopped at 89 because the computer said "ok, she knows her stuff". or....i stopped at 89 because the computer decided "she doesn't know anything!".

    i want to pass. i just want my license already. keep me in your prayers everyone!!

    good luck to those who have yet to take it. and congrats to those who have passed!!
