    I took my exam this morning. I had 77 questions with several SATA and a few put in order, no med admin; lots of prioritzation and infection control. Not sure how I did. I don't feel completely horrible but who knows I may have failed. I'm trying to think positive though. I'm waiting for my status to show delivered on the pearsonvue site so I can somewhat know if I did ok or not. I feel so nervous but at least the test is over not the waiting has begun

    try the pearson vue trick. it really helps with the waiting until you have your results. I think someone put a link a few pages back on how to access the directions on how to do it. good luck :wink2:

    I did the trick and I received the pop up and didn't/couldn't go on to the credit card screen. I'm hoping this really does mean I passed!

    Finally got my results and I PASSED!!!!!I had been checking for the results all day and when it finally said Quick Results Available, I felt like my heart stopped and it took me 10 minutes of staring at the screen before I opened the page and found out. I am so happy!!!

    Good luck to all of you waiting to take the exam or waiting for results.

    I just came home from the test...ugh. I felt like I got 75 of the hardest questions ever! It was mostly med/surg with some psych, a few OB and maybe 3 peds questions. I got less than 10 pharmacology questions and about 8 SATA and I didn't get a single calculations questions. Most of the questions were prioritization and how should the nurse intervene type questions and I got some infection control questions too. I didn't get anything on delegation. Oh well I'm going to try the pearsonvue trick and see if it works tomorrow. I'm just glad it's all over and I hope I passed because I wouldn't know where to start if I didn't make it

    I just found out that I passed!
    Praise and thanks to the Lord! I would not have made it through without Him...

    Again, I wish all of you the best of luck. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I know it's hard: waiting to take the test, then taking the test...then waiting again for the results! People before us have done it, we can do it.

    For future test takers: I think for me (and a few of my classmates), Kaplan helped A LOT. Their questions were very similar to NCLEX and I felt more comfortable going into NCLEX. I like how Kaplan's questions are all online, so even just practicing doing questions over the computer was helpful. In all honestly, Kaplan questions were definitely harder than NCLEX....which freaked me out during the actual test; I was afraid I wasn't getting the "harder" questions...it just seemed too good to be true!

    Im studying lab values right now and my books vary in their values. For example, Hct is 40-48 for females in Kaplan book, while Saunders is 35-47. What gives? How will I know what lab values are correct for the Nclex? I would hate to fail my exam because I studed the wrong values. Please help!!

    I took NCLEX-RN yesterday morning... I had 23 SATA's, 1 drop and drag, 3 calculations, a bunch of medications, and prioritization. I had around 243 questions... I lost track because I was getting so nervous and losing hope. I sat there for 5 hours and 57 minutes. It was torture! I've been told the theory on SATA's being upper-level questions, most of mine were in the beginning and then they started to become less and less. My last 2 questions: one was the drag and drop, and the last I believe was priority. Any thoughts? I feel about 99.8% sure that I failed. I used Kaplan and got a 63% on my readiness and averaged a 59% in the Qbank. However, I felt that when using the "decision tree" I had TONS of questions that went straight from step one to step five. Which was extremely frustrating!

    Congrats to everyone who passed!
