Just completed NCLEX RN exam

  1. I just completed my NCLEX RN exam. It shut off at 75 questions.I don't know what to think about it. I had a lot of who would you see first, which patient would you transfer and which phone call would you return first. I just don't know what to think about it. I felt in the end like the questions just were not as hard!!!! I will keep everyone posted!!!!!!!!1 :uhoh21:

    I think you shouldn't worry about it. Your experience (the types of questions and that the questions seemed easier at the end) was exactly what I experienced, and I found out today that I passed at 75 questions too. I know you WILL worry, but I think you're probably fine.

    Do try to resist the urge to look things up to see whether you got them right. You've earned a day or so to not look in your books. I left my books in the car so that I couldn't double check and I'm glad I did. It would only have stressed me out more!

    Thanks for the advice. I have to work tomorrow and thur. so I will not be able to think about it all day. I also got question after question of select all that apply!!! I have soooo much riding on this test!!! I have tried not to look up questions, becuase it makes me mad at some of the things that I know I got wrong!!!! I took my books and put them in a bag and have not looked at them since.

    Good luck you two. I take it next Wed. I hate those select all that apply questions. I'm worried about those.

    I just took the NCLEX. It also shut off after 75 questions. I was getting higher-level questions for the most of the second half, so I feel OK about my score, but it was HARD. I had 6-7 'choose all that apply'.

    To top it off I woke up with a fever this a.m., plus a wicked headache and a cough. I feel AWFUL. I was getting chills and sweats in the testing center.

    I have to work tomorrow so that should keep my mind off the waiting.
