NCLEX January 2007 - 75 questions

  1. Hello,

    I have been reading the discussions, not posting a lot, but do appreciate everyone's advice.

    I took my first NCLEX yesterday, and have been crying all day today. I just know I failed. I have looked up about 20 questions, and I missed them all. I know some of them can be pilot questions, but what if there were all 'real' questions? I felt good about five, I repeat, FIVE answers.... I just hope that the five I felt good about were not pilot questions.

    I find out my results tomorrow - I hope. I already have a job, and if I don't pass, I lose it - it was a very competitive job to get, a lot of applicants, and I thought I was so lucky to get it.. now it may be slipping through my fingers!

    Any advise on statistics of how many passed/failed with only 75 questions?
    (I know it may not make a difference, but I am freaking out here). The questions were all hard for me, with the exception of a handful of easy ones.. it could be because I was nervous or not prepared, but I took Kaplan and scored high, my exit hesi was a high score, and my nursing GPA was a 3.7.

    I agree, everyone feels that way. I took my Nclex on the 12th and it also shut off at 75. I don't know how I did yet. I guess I passed but I'm not sure. I did great on Kaplan and was salutatorian of my class but GEEZ! the Nclex was hard stuff.

    good luck and believe u already is a Nurse. wtg.

    I PASSED!!!!!!

    Wow, that was not fun... the waiting was nearly as bad as the NCLEX itself. I did the quick results with Pearson, and had to hold my breath when I entered my info.

    Thank you for your encouragement.

    I am a REAL nurse now!!!!!
