    Took my NCLEX-RN Saturday June 11th. 75 questions in 45 minutes. Got the good pop-up in 1.5 hrs and got the unofficial pass this morning at 9am

    AGreen, was it he PN or the RN exam. Last year my PN exam shut off at 85 and this year my RN shut off at 75. I passed both but I was nervous to have gotten the minimum questions. I thought for sure I'd failed.


    Congrats Callisonanne!!

    Well Julie, luckily you are surrounded by people on this site that have shared that same feeling and many of them still feeling it now. It is a horrible feeling. It almost makes you feel like you want to crawl out of your skin. How many questions did you have?
    I had 75. 15 or so SATA. No drug calc, no alternate item format other than SATA.

    That sounds like my exam exam I did have one IV drip rate question. Other than that, no math and no other format except the SATA.

    Same for me. I had probably 20 SATA, 1 that required lab value knowledge, lots of infxn and endocrine and lots of prioritization. No math and no alternative format.
  9. by   RN_Mom_of_2
    I had a ton of prioritization questions, the "which should the nurse see first.." I only had one or two infection control questions though. I was expecting some lab values.. but I didn't get any.

    oh wow, i totally feel your pain of being in limbo-hold-land. i just had my results on hold for 4 looong days. talk about torture! i took the NCLEX-PN on thurs 6/9 and just found out this afternoon that i passed. (yay!)

    the problem? the fingerprinting machine didn't read my fingerprint properly, so i had to go back to the testing center and have it re-done. they released the hold and i got my results immediately after that.

    i was initially given the run-around when i called pearson's customer service number this morning. first they said they didn't have the results and to call my board. the board didn't know anything, of course. so i called pearson back. they then said they didn't know why my results were on hold and that i'd just have to wait. !!!

    finally got an email from a helpful pearson rep this afternoon explaining the problem.

    just stay on top of them and keep calling to follow up if your status doesn't change soon. good luck!

    Thanks all for your supportive words. Nothing has changed with my pop-up yet, and if my quick results are not availible at 1p (in like 14 hours), I am going to call pearsonvue and the NCBSN about it and see what the holdup is. *sigh*
