So I took the test this morning. I was so nervous/excited the night before that I barely slept at all. I left my house without my keys or cell phone and only realized after I was sitting there answering questions that I had forgotten to eat any breakfast!
Still when the screen turned off after 75 questions I felt AWESOME! I know other people say that if you only got 75 then you probably didn't pass but I don't agree at all. I felt great at the end of the test
Now maybe I'm totally misguided and perhaps on Friday I'll find out that I need to sign up to take it again but IMHO having it shut off at 75 means you either were very obviously passing or failing. And I can't imagine feeling so confident through so many of the questions (or at the very least being able to eliminate 50% of the possible answers) and still being able to fail so soundly in only 60 questions (not counting the 15 experimentals)
Anyway, keep the faith everyone. Hopefully I'll be posting in a few days with rocking good news

Took the test this morning and the computer shut off at 75q. I was so jittery yesterday that I could not remember my debit pin when I was at the grocery store and forgot a lot of things. I only slept for 2 hours.
I am praying that I will pass. I sticked to my textbooks and Saunders though I was not able to cover all topics.
Good luck to all of us. . . .

Does anyone know, the Pearson trick, does it mean to get to the credit card page, you have probably failed, or do you have to confirm after that? I have been scared to confirm, incase I do not get the money back if you pass. Although I am assuming that I didn't. As internationally trained nurses (I am from UK) only pass 44% 1st time.
Do you have to contact the nursing board again, or just reschedule at Pearson?
Will update you all, when I find out?:spin:

May 31, '09Occupation: RN From: US ; Joined: Apr '09; Posts: 19; Likes: 3No I didn't get to the credit care page. I got the "our records indicate that you are already registered for this exam, please contact your board of nursing" message.
