NCLEX-PN 85 questions and passed!

I just want to praise the LORD for all of his wonderful blessings and prayers answered and I want to thank everyone on here who prayed for me and talked to me.

I took my NCLEX-PN the first time Thursday morning at 8am and I really thought I wasn't going to have a good day. I only slept 4-5 hours the night before and I had a bad head cold that I could hardly hear anyone because my ears were so stopped up. I prayed the entire time while I sit myself in that chair getting ready to take it. I started writing down everything I could remember on that board before I even started and the woman came in there after 5 mins and said that I needed to start my test or it would kick me out. I started going for the tutorial and I could feel my heart RACING. After my first question, I got a SATA. I just had a feeling the entire time that I would only get 85 questions. After 1 hour and 30 minutes, the computer shut off and I thought the test was too easy because I could only think of about 8-10 that I honestly didn't know. I called my fiance to pick me up and I told him that I knew I had failed, but deep in my heart I knew I had passed. I looked on the WV board last night before I went to church to see if my license had been activated and it was! I jumped up and woke up my fiance and told him the great news! GOD IS SO GOOD!

I had 2-3 infection control, 8-10 SATA, 2 med calculations, 8-10 drugs [got the same question about the s/s of one], LOTS of priority, and 4-5 delegation.

The reason the NCLEX was easy for me is because I used KAPLAN QBANK and HURST REVIEW. I live by those two because if it wasn't for the combination of those two I wouldn't have passed. Also, SPIDERMAN and other mnemonics really came in use. The questions on Qbank were harder than the NCLEX and knowing your information is key. I studied almost every single day for almost 3 months and it would range from 5-9 hours a day. If you do not know your content on NCLEX then you will not pass because I only used my ABCs twice and the rest of it was all knowledge based.

I never got wrapped up in my score on Qbank either. I had completed 96% and I had 58% [that is doing the questions that you missed with the unused questions]. Two days before I took the NCLEX, I scored a 44% on one of the Qbank tests with questions I had never used which had caused my Qbank score to drop from 59% to 58%. I focused on the rationales and not my score. I did use Saunders for the CD and I ranged from 50-75% on 100-question tests. When studying drugs, I learned the endings and the common side effects with the patient teaching [that came from Exam Cram].

The main reason I passed is because of PRAYING. I fasted, prayed hard, and gave all my thanks to my Lord. Based on scores some say I wasn't ready, but if you have the Lord on your side you don't have to worry about scores!

If anyone is taking the NCLEX soon, please PM me!

congrats!!!! i took my PN exam today and the computer shut off at 85 for me too. I'm nervous because I think it was easier than I had thought it would be, and normally I always think i did bad on tests (but do real good) so i think that maybe me not worrying about means i did bad!! i know its crazy. i also used KAPLAN Q BANK among others, and i feel that kaplan really helped. their ?'s were way harder than the actual exam!! again, congrats, and hopefully i will be a nurse in a few days :)

Hey cassyandra... i took my nclex yesterday morning.... and i am so worried... the computer turn off at 85 questions and it only took me exactly an hour and 10 min....... I can't sleep, I can't think, I can't do anything because I want to know my results right now.. I was thinking maybe I rush myself and I didn't choose the right answers..... I heard some people have failed with 85 questions and that is just stressing me more.. I don't think I did that well... I'm so nervous.... :cry:.. I know everybody who takes the test feels this way but I don't think I did that well....

Ohh and congrats for passing.. I'm happy for you!!:yeah:
