    Sooo I took my NCLEX this morning and left with this horrible feeling, like I just spent all this time and money on nursing school and did not learn a thing. I seriously wondered why I spent all this time learning about disease processes and signs and symptoms of certain conditions only to be tested on how well I prioritize things.
    As soon as I returned home I tried the PVT and was stuck with the "Ready For Delivery". I finally received my delivery successful status after 3 hours of refreshing my web browser every 5 minutes and received the "good pop up". Just praying to God that this works.. I'm supposed to be starting my job on October 4th!

    Hi everyone,

    I took the NCLEX-RN this morning at 8am. Got out of there around 1030 after 265 questions. I almost cried when I saw 76 come up. I almost gave up hope when I saw 150! After that, I felt the test dragged on.. Throughout the rest of the exam, I felt that I was getting every other question wrong. I came out of the test center thinking that I was 99% sure that I failed. I called everyone crying that I worked so hard the past 4 years just to fail this exam..

    I got home around noon and did the PVT trick and got the good pop up. Let's hope it will work for me!

    Congrats to all of those who just passed and good luck to the rest who are about to take it!

    If it makes you feel better, some people get the full spread not because of how they're doing but just because of some random experimental bs.

    By the way I think 2.5 hours to answer 265 questions is great timing!

    Hi Everyone,
    I took my test for the second time today. Last time it took me to te credit card page (and I had failed). Today I got the good pop up. Believe the trick does work....

    Yes, sitting for 265 was a BEAST. I just took a deep breath and tried hard to re-collect myself. I didn't want to take a break. I just wanted to get out of there! Advice to those who are about to take the test.. Don't get discouraged if you don't stop at 75 or even go all the way to 265! You've survived years of nursing school. Just take a big, deep breath and keep on going with the fight! You can do it!

    Getting the good pop up was a much needed stress reliever. I felt so sure that I failed coming out of the test. Let's see what happens! I hope to return the next day or two to tell you all that I passed

    i took my nclex rn yesterday morning & i'm dying of anxiety.. after the 75th question i felt like i lost focus. having taken the nclex pn a couple of years ago (went from lpn to rn) i got the minimum number of questions & i passed. this test stopped around 120-125. i did the 'trick' & i got the good pop up. although i'm skeptical, it gave me some reassurance. i'll let you guys know tomorrow morning. wish me luck! i'll keep you posted.

    I walked out of that test feeling abused. Wondering how my competency to be a good nurse could be decided in this way. I had 3 questions on Hep-G for crying out loud! Ten med's that I have never heard of... not even a recognizable stem eg, pril, pam, statin, etc.. notta. many SATA, prioritizing and the what statement would I follow up on questions were real eye squinter s followed by a mental WHAT?? So, I've got the good pop up and a nervous laugh. My family now thinks I've gone insane. I need the confirmation! lol. Good luck to all that's currently waiting.

    Took NCLEXRN last Thursday, and 4 hours after the test got good pop-up, then 52 hours after test, (yes, 52, as the 48 is not a certainty on the weekend, I found out) paid the $7.95 for the PV quick results, "PASS", because my BON office staff person was on vacation, and nothing was getting posted online until she got back, the following Wednesday, which was today, and HALLELUJAH! I got to see my new license number, and I cried! I think I was still expecting to have someone say "HA! Just kidding!"
    GOOD LUCK and Hang in there while you wait!!

    Yeah, I also got lots of those "which one needs follow up"?

    The strange thing is that there were so many that I just blindly guessed, but still the computer shut off at 75 and I got the good popup. I can't fathom the wisdom of the computer adjusted test, but who cares as long as I passed....

    You are not a failure! God has different plans for everyone and everything has its timing. Trust me I know. Give yourself a little break and get back at, or just wait till you get you paper that shows you your weak areas. I Know it hurts trust me I failed more than once but you have to get back up and try again. A failure is quitting! And I may not know you but you cant quit now, you made through nursing school and boy was that a mission in itself. Everything will work out according to God's plan and I will pray for you. REMEMBER you are not a failure! You can do this. Think positive. I just had a friend tell me today you have to have a positive mind set and tell yourself you can do this. Good luck and God Bless.

    Update
    I did the PVT after finishing the NCLEX (75 questions in less than 60 mins) I waited till the Pearsonvue page showed that my test had been delivered to the board (1-2 hours). The next morning Florida Health webpage showed I had passed. THe following morning My license showed up on the webpage. From NCLEX to RN in 3 days Florida rocks and I didnt give 8 more dollars to Pearsonvue.

    So far all my classmates that have taken the NCLEX (around 10 or so) have passed the NCLEX and the PVT has worked for them. PSC rules!!!!!

    I'm sorry u didnt pass. Have you taken a review course? Here is what I studied to pass. I skimmed the Kaplan RN course book, I took tons of quizzes from saunders and mosby, I also really like the Illustrated NCLEX review i got it at books-a-million. while sitting on a street corner for hours(in my ambulance) i did quizzes on my iphone with the Saunders NCLEX apps.
    i only studied about 8 hours the day before the nclex mostly endocrine disorders and nuero disorders and all that diet stuff like what foods should a renal patient eat/not eat stuff
    hope this helps.
