Passed the NCLEX in 76 questions!


Hey all :) I passed the NCLEX 2 days ago and received my results yesterday! I'd like to share my experience in a few brief sentences for those who may be interested.

It took me two attempts to pass the NCLEX. The first time I failed in 76 questions, the second time I passed in 76 questions! The difference was studying! The first time I just did a brief two day review of nursing school and didn't really research much about the test. The second time I studied for five weeks. I did an average of 200 - 300 practice questions per day and watched around an hour of skill videos. That's it!

Going from failing in 76 questions to passing in 76 is a big accomplishment and I just want to let everyone know it's possible.

MORE INFO: On my failed attempt, I answered question 76 wrong, on the passing attempt I answered question 76 right. Correlated? Maybe?

Never give up!

Getting last question right or wrong doesn't matter. We have seen members post they got the last question wrong and convinced failed to later post they passed
