I took the NCLEX RN yesterday and I am A NERVOUS WRECK!!!! It stopped at 75 questions. When the computer cut off, I wanted to throw the monitor!!:angthts: All I could think was "NOOOOO!!! I failed!! Why not just one more question to let me prove myself!! I know I can do it if you just give me one more!!!"
So, I came home, and began to research about the scores. I have heard a lot of things about getting only 75 Q's....either you did really good....or really bad! But now, I want to know something else:
?? Does the topics and content of your test have any bearing? I know that they go from easier to harder and mine did, but I DIDN'T get a wide of variety of Q's.
They consisted of:
5-8 med SE Q's
10-15 Infection Control
15-20 URI Q's
They seemed SO hard...right from the start!!
The 2nd Q. was a SATA, then about Q. 20, there were 2 back to back, then about every 3-4 Q. was a SATA. The content contained mainly Infection Control and URI (like RSV, Bronchliolitis, TB, Pneumonia). Even the SATA's were about Infection and URI. There were NO math probs., no peds questions, maybe 1 patho of a disease.
I hated the content they gave me and I DID NOT feel confident AT ALL!!!! I feel like I guessed on about 55-60 of the questions. I even had 2 of the same questions...2 SATA's that were EXACTLY the same question! That can't be a good sign! :stone
I am SO SCARED!! I haven't eaten in almost 2 days, all I want to do is cry and sleep, then wake up and cry myself back to sleep! And MS doesn't offer Quick Results, I have to wait 7-10 days for my letter!
PLZ, any advice, encouragement, anything might help! I don't care if I failed, b/c I can take it again...but I don't want to have to tell my parents that I failed. They paid for my school and NCLEX out of pocket, and I SO don't want to let them down!!
