NCLEX-RN is not as bad as I thought

  1. Passed NCLEX WOOOOO!!!! anyways for anyone who has not tested yet. RELAX! It is not as hard as people make it out to be. It shut off at 75 questions for me and only took about 40 min. Good luck everyone and remember BREATH, RELAX, and BE CONFIDENT!

    Great job!!

    What kind of study materials did you use?

    okay so this is really stupid and I am not recommending it but I didn't study at all. I attended a really tough nursing school and had a 3.8 when I finished so I figured if I didn't know my **** when I graduated I wouldn't learn anything in the 2.5 weeks between graduation and NCLEX.

    I took Nclex PN on sat and it too did not seem hard, I got good pop up, cut off at minimum 85

    Glad to hear that! I go tomorrow and figure if I can make it through nursing school and all the tests passing everything, I should be able to do this!

    Mine cut off at 75, too - still waiting on the official results, but have the good pop-up. I'm agreeing with you - it wasn't as hard as I was expecting in some ways, but there were some tricky questions on there for me!

    Very good question. They were NOTHING like the nclex. However, it was a good tool to review what you didn't so that you can go back and study it. There about 5 knowledge based, easy to answer questions on the nclex.

    I agree. It wasn't that bad, but still, it was definitely not easy. Level of questions were quite challenging, but really, not THAT bad as people say; still again, quite challenging. I also agree with what you say about school. Good school means higher chances of success b/c those schools give tougher tests relatively; mine was #4 in the state, all those "non-sense" questions during school payed off. Congrats buddy
