PASSED IN 60 - WALKED OUT CONFIDENT

ForTheKids specializes in Pediatric Nurse.

I took my NCLEX a few days ago. It shut off at 60, and I left KNOWING I had passed. I was just waiting on the email!

I had 60 questions, 21 select all, 1 exhibit question, NO audio/hot spot/math...

I used UWorld for over a month. I did a MAXIMUM of 75 questions a day. One day I only did 50, and one day I only did the NurseAchieve CAT exam (which shut off at 61 questions) and no UWorld questions. I bought the package with 2 assessments - on the first test which was 2 weeks before my exam I got borderline, and on the 2nd one 1 week before my exam I got very high. 

I wanted to share because I don't ever hear people discussing my experience. I didn't use anything else. I walked in feeling somewhat confident, but prepared myself to feel depressed after thinking I had failed. I did not feel that way whatsoever. There was only one question where I had no idea what the disease was. Other people led me to believe I would be guessing on every question. I was so confident in myself afterward, and found out 36 hours later that I had passed.

I am BSN, RN!!

Congratulations 🎊🍾🎉🎈! I know how you feel.😊 Ten years ago on June 16th, I walked out of Pearson Vue feeling the exact same way because the computer shut down at 75 questions. I was so naive that I didn’t know that people actually failed at 75 until my friend failed hers. Thank God I passed. Anyway, you have another reason to celebrate. Happy Fourth!!

Thank you! I also listened to about 7 out of 12 of Mark Klimek's lectures. They helped me on at least 2 questions.

Just stopping thru to say CONGRATS!

Congratulations! Did you feel that the questions you got were somewhat surface-level questions about diseases or very detailed and got into the nitty-gritty? Taking mine in a week and I'm super nervous! I've been using UWorld only as well
