I just finished my nclex. Cut off at 75 and I feel horrible. I feel that I guessed on a lot. How many fail on 75? I had a mix of stuff and SATA. Thanks!

The types of questions is irrelevant. There are questions of all type that are above and below the passing standard. The vast majority of US-educated NCLEX takers do pass on the first attempt. Take a few days for yourself. Relax. The test is over and at this point you are free. Get your official license number/Quick Results/however your state lets you find out when you can.

Most everyone feels this way... I know I did. Try and do something active to get your mind off of it until you an get your results (I know easier said then done).

Best Wishes!

I bought ncsbn review but it was way crazy. I used saunders online review questions. I focused on the analysis and application . Also when taking the exam if it was something I was unsure of and it asked what requires more teaching etc... I reviewed the answers.... almost every time 3 were all similar

What do you mean by "way crazy", lol. I am taking mine in a couple weeks and I am freaking out and not sure what strategies or practice questions would be best. Were the NCSBN questions exactly like the NCLEX????? I am doing kaplan and UWorld right now and I hate the kaplan, but am really loving the UWorld and am not sure it is good enough.

By the way CONGRATS RN!!!!

I literally felt the EXACT same way a week ago when I took the NCLEX. Try to relax! I know it's hard waiting, but it sounds like you're responding the same way I did.

I know most won't recommend doing the PVT, but it did work for me and the folks in my class that did it as well.

Edit: CONGRATULATIONS NURSE!

Didn't read you had passed

I was praying for more questions at 75 but it cut off. The proctor said congratulations as she scanned my palm to leave the testing area. I said we will see.
