NCLEX PN yesterday, 190 questions, 90 minutes... too easy? bad sign?

Hi all, I've been browsing this site for a while, trying to find some info that will help me feel better about my test yesterday, but I can't! I went up to 190 questions in an hour and a half, NO SELECT ALL THAT APPLY QUESTIONS AT ALL or alternative format, besides the fill in the answer ones which I got about 2 of! It seemed like the computer was giving me really easy questions to answer, but I felt like I was unable to answer them. This is bad. I've never been so depressed in my life. It gave me a lot of prioritization and client teaching questions, and a lot of knowledge based questions, a few meds. Other than that, I really have a sinking feeling that I failed. I'm telling myself it's ok, that I'll just take it again, but I really don't want to go through that again! I'm a fast test taker, always have been, I guess that's why I finished so quickly. A friend of mine took hers in 2 1/2 hours and got only 85 questions. Oh gosh.. I get my results tomorrow, a part of me doesn't even want to get them! Encouragement please! Anyone ever got as high as 200/205 and passed?

You're analyzing too much I think. :)

The number of questions on the NCLEX does not predict the pass/fail result. People pass and fail at all numbers.

That's right. The number of questions does not determine pass/fail. Statistically odds are in your favor of passing. Wishing you the best of luck!

As Eric said, I think that you are analyzing too much, but in a situation like this it's hard not to do. Just try to relax, and we are hoping for the best for you!

Hope you hear back soon!

Well I took mine yesterday 205 and in 3 hours..no idea cause the first time I took boards it was 96 (I think) and I failed! I am really freaky as well.....but I am praying for all that are going through what we are ..pit in my stomach and it is awful!!! Good Luck prayers you way!

:yeah::cheers:congrats PPLPN So happy for you!!!!!

If not to much to ask how and what did you study?

wish u da best.

I was told by a few other to pay and do the on line thing throught learningext.com

Go check it out it helped me alittle but I think nothing can really prepare you because you never know what you are going to get so it is just practicing questions...

GOOD LUCK!! Let me know how you did and I will as well

took mine on thursday and it stopped at 85 .. i was so unsure what they mean by "hard" questions coz i never encountered any of such that we're brainwrecking.. it's starting to make me nervous, coz if they give you easy questions it means that u got the previous question wrong. i am seriously starting to worry, coz i didn't find it very difficult at all.. it would be such a shame to fail at 85 :(
