Took NCLX-PN today (kinda long)

  1. First I want to start by saying that I have been lurking in this forum for about 2 months and have posted a couple times. And I am so glad that my nursing instructor told us about this web site! I have been gathering information about the experience of the the test, not just how to study or what with (I thought I had that all under control). I was here to try and anticipate how I might feel before during and after. And for the most part I feel the same as everyone, very scared!
    My test shut off after 85 questions and I know that the number of questions means nothing, but wow! I really don't know how I did! I had a wide varity, Infection control, priority, OB, Mental health , Pharm but no math!
    I had a few select all that apply, (I dont remember how many, I cant even try to guess)
    I had about 5 to 10 questions about a disease/syndrome thing of which I have no clue (and I will be looking up as soon as I'm done here!)
    But to get to my point I guess,
    You will have to experience this beast for yourself. I thought I was prepared to see hard questions and deal with the anxiety of the computer shutting off when you really feel that you need more to try and pass.
    But I feel so lousy right now. And I keep thinking ..what can I do different for when I take it again? And where will I get another $200
    Thanks for letting me vent I hope to be back in a few days to tell you that I passed!

    i also had 85q's and i passed! i felt the same way as you after the test
    i had several select all that apply....pharmacology....delegation...priority
    questions...i felt that the questions are on the same level of difficulty....
    but this is my opinion...the more difficult the questions are...the higher ur
    chances of passing is...that's what i felt happen on my test...anyway good

    luck and there's nothing else to do now but PRAY![/ you have nothing to worry about to stop doubting yourself.. well im just telling you this becuz i have taken the nclex 4xs and never i will go and give up becuz of one test. i know i have the knowledge and the attitude for this field.. i really really wish you the best and please dont feel alone cuz you are not alone. .i wish that when i pass this test for the final time i can give everyone a bigg hug. maybe i will.. but theres only one person that understands what is meant for you . and its the person up above. im not trying to get religous but thats the only thing that will work .. ive been praying a lot and it works becuz he is the only one that sees all the hard effort so dont put yourself down. i really love this forum. with the help of everyone all comments for me.. makes me have more confidence.. ijust wish i could take it with until my exam date.. good luck and gotta get to studying so when i finally pass i can shop till i drop for a purse.. hahahahahahahahahha .. i cant wait.
