Just a question for everyone. I'm totally freaking out, I took my the NCLEX in TN today and I have no idea of how I did. That darned computer shut off at 85 and I think my heart almost shut off with it I was just wondering for the most part, is 85 questions a good thing or bad thing? My teacher says that she has never had anyone that failed with that number of questions and that it rarely happens, but in general, anyone got any words of encouragement? I'd really appreciate it. TN doesn't participate in the fast results so I have to wait anywhere from six to nine days to find out either online or by phone and longer through the mail - thank goodness for electronics In any case, anybody know about the 85, I feel confident that I passed it because the questions were really hard, so it made me feel that I was in the harder level questions, but I am not sure. I'm rambling - it's the nervousness... I'll hush now, but before I go let me recommend studying for the NCLEX PN by studying the disk of NCLEX RN 3000, it helped me so much with my boards. My teacher made us do it, and I literally hugged her for it today...Thanks, you guys!
I'm still a student, so i have no words of wisdom regarding the NCLEXPN. I just wanted to wish you luck. Remember to keep a positive attitude. :)
Thanks :) And good luck to you with school.
undefinedDear Holly, I felt the same way when I took my NCLEX last year! After several clinical bouts where the patients loved me and the teachers thought I "cared too much" about the patients I went into the test scared too death. Mine shut off after 85 questions also and I bit my nails until the end of the week when my 7 yr old and I went online and got the results. You probably did fine and I will keep you in my prayers for good results.
I am now working as a middle school nurse in Georgia Mon-Fri with holidays and weekends off so there is life after the nclex.
You sound JUST like I did exactly a week ago. I'm serious. Read my post titled: "Cried (I mean BAWLED) all the way home from Memphis". I found out tonight that I did pass and I am so very, very excited. My test shut off at 85 and all of the questions were so foreign to me. I was devastated! But come to find out, in my little "clique" of 5 students from nursing school, all five of us shut off at 85 and all of us passed. I think 85 is a good sign! Also, try phoning the 1-800 number in exactly a week. The TN website runs 24 hours behind the phone line and all of were issued a license exactly one week from the day we took the test (and we took it on different days). I'm sure you did fine. Just try to relax. Trust me. I know it's nearly impossible. But you'll know for sure very soon and then you'll be a nurse...I'm sure of it.

Thanks so much for all of the words of encouragement. My mom works at a hospital, not as a nurse though, and everyone keeps telling her that they are almost positive if it cut off at 85 then I more than likely passed it. I feel pretty confident with the 85, my teacher is already congratulating me as well, but I guess it doesn't hit home until I see a license number Kind of pathetic, I live an hour and a half away from Memphis, TN, and as soon as I got home I got online, knowing all along that it would be approximately six to nine days before I would see anything anywhere. The nerves are the worst, maybe I'll just try and sleep it off, for the next week Thanks again everyone - nice to know I'm not alone.
Just wanted to vent. I am so worried about those darn results that I'm literally sick. I wish someone would just say cut off at 85 questions you passed, but as I keep reading I'm seeing some people say that it's just a number and has no meaning whatsoever, and it makes me want to scream. I just wish it were cut and dry. I won't know anything probably until next Tuesday or Wednesday, but the waiting is awful. Then I read some posts where people say that if you remember the last question and know you got it right that you probably passed, and heck I can't tell you the first question on that test, any in the middle, much less the last. I don't even remember what it was about. When I came out I wasn't really sure if I had passed or failed, but to a point I felt confident with the 85. I'm a mess! I wish there were something else I could do, but unfortunately TN doesn't use the quick results so I don't have a choice, yuck! In any case, just wanted to vent. I vent to my friends and family, but I don't quite think they understand the feeling of anxiety that comes with knowing one test can make or break my career. In any case, thanks for listening, sorry if I bored ya!
Just wanted to let you know that I just received my results and I did, in fact, pass... YAY!! I wanted to just say thanks to everyone for all of their support throughout the past week. It's been rough on me and everyone around me as I have been slightly moody But in any case, thanks so much for all the encouragement.
Hooray Holly!!! Now you can put those initials after your name proudly! How was the test? Was there a lot of math for meds calculations?? *shudders* Anyway, good for you...and congrats! That is AWESOME news and you should be celebrating! :balloons:
The test to me was not that hard, and that was what had me freaking out about it, because I just knew that I had failed because I found it so easy. I only had two math calculations, and they were simple intake and out put questions. I had a couple of new format questions, one select all that apply and then the two math were fill in the blanks. I found it easy, the wait is what makes you question yourself so much! Thanks for the ocngrats!
I am TOTALLY freaking out! Just like alot of the posts that I have read my heart also stopped after getting 85 questions. I also am trying desperately to remember any of the questions. When that computer stopped, my mind also TOTALLY stopped. It's funny but the last question I answered had to do with a diet and I remember picking bananas as the last answer, but basically that is all I do remember. My nerves are shot to the point where I actually made myself physically sick. I'm hoping I receive my score in the next few days, I'm still trying to find out how the quick results work and if we have it in PA. Wish me luck and hopefully I will be back posting that I passed :)
Congrats to all who passed and good luck to all who have to take the boards!
Hi there! Just wanted to tell you to relax, most people will say that the number of questions you got is no indication of how you did, but me, got 85, I honestly feel that you have passed :) My teacher says that she has NEVER had a computer cut off at 85 and a student fail. So, I think you are alright, just breathe, and try to sleep a lot, it takes the stress off of your mind! About the quick results - On the paperwork I received with my ATT, I also got a list of the states where quick results is available, here it is: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolin, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermond, washington, West Virginia PN, Wisconsin, Wyoming. If you are not listen, try going to your state board of nursing website, and looking for either a licensure verification number you an call or a place online to verify your licensure. It took me in TN, who does not have quick results an week, exactly! Best Wishes, hope this helps!
