Well, that was.... weird

  1. Just got back from the testing center. Got the "blue screen of death" at 75 questions. So I figure I either did really well, or blew it completly. I had a tears/wimpering breakdown as I was walking across the parking lot, but feel kinda numb and floaty right now. Wait... now my hands are shaking. I'm going to go lay down. Should be an interesting 48 hours.

    I got the blue screen at 76. I don't know what to make of that. :uhoh21:

    At least the torment didn't last hours or until you hit 265 questions right? Best of luck to you!

    I received the "screen" Monday after 75Q. I should have results early tomorrow! I am tempted to stay up all night and just keep checking! But since I have to work tomorrow not really the best idea! Good luck to all and remain positive!

    I got the "blue screen" at 85 questions (the minimum for the LPN NCLEX). Thought exactly as you...well that was....weird. The whole test was odd, strange, and out of left field to me.

    Its very common to have no confidence in you passing, I think most of us thought the same thing. The thing to remember is your chances of passing far outweigh not passing :bowingpur You have an 85 in 100 chance of passing..not too shabby odds.

    Try to divert your attention to something "non NCLEX". I know,easier said than done but it does help. If I did something that wasn't nursing, medical or test related I tended to forget about the test. And when I again thought about it I realized I was X amount of hours closer then

    Just thank the stars that you have quick results and will have your fate in 48 hrs, you could be one of those poor souls who has to wait days and weeks for their results.

    I'm sure you did well and will see PASS when you check your status

    My test shut off at 76 (10 years ago). . .I passed. You will too!

    I hate that test though . . . .

    Thank you for the encouragement, everyone. I have a couple months of fun taped TV (go Northwestern!!) to catch up on, so between that and some liquid bravery I'll be OK.
    And CT Pixie, congrats on becoming an LPN!!!
