Took NCLEX-RN Exam today (YIKES!!!)

  1. Wow, I took my NCLEX-RN exam this morning and boy was it hard! It seemed like every 4th or 5th question was "Select All That Apply" and I really suck at those. The good thing is that I only had the minimum amount of questions (75) and from what I hear that means I either really bombed it or passed. I hope I passed! I won't know until 48 business hours have passed but I'll keep you updated.

    Have you taken it? How many questions did you do? Pass or fail? How did you prepare for it? I read the Kaplan strategy book, did practice questions from both Kaplan and Saunders books & CDs, and reviewed lab values. Hopefully it paid off! Wish me luck and I also wish you the best if you haven't taken it yet!

    Well I wish you luck...I am taking mine on 7-7-09...I am nervous, and kind of thinking I should have taken it earlier..My orientation for work starts next week, so I thought that a couple weeks later would be good...Anyhow from what I understand by our Kaplan review we had that is if you start to get Select all that apply questions then you are doing really well and showing enough compitence to be over that needed to pass..And if you were getting them that frequently, I would put my money on you PASSED!!!....Hope so...try to relax and enjoy the fact you have it out of the way....

    Whatever you do, DON'T give up. I have a friend who failed the 1st time and on the second one he passed (and was a nursing student who had failed his first time around and came back and graduated). He never gave up even though everyone told him he was past his prime and had come off a factory job.

    You can do it...you just got to believe in yourself!

    You must have been right because I PASSED!!! I am so happy it's done and over with. This is the first weekend I can do something with my family and not have anything over my head in a very long time. I wish you all the same happiness soon!
