I took my NCLEX-PN this morning at 8am, the computer shut off at 85 questions and my heart sank immediately. The exam felt so alien like, I only recognized a few things so when the screen turned blue I felt like omg thats it, its over I had to of failed. I was the first person out of the testing room and just sat there in the waiting area like a lump on a log. I immediately pulled up the Pearson Vue site on my iPhone and logged in. I kept my page up and just keep hitting the refresh button every so often waiting for my "ready for delivery" status to change over to "delivery successful". I took my exam with 3 other classmates of mine and boy am I glad these girls were there with me. It felt so good to not only know somewhere there but just to have the wonderful support. The first of my three classmates came out and we both just had the look of all the energy being drained from our bodies look. We both stopped at 85 questions so I was beginning to feel a little better. She was in the same position where she felt she didn't recognize anything on the exam and felt there was no way she could of passed. We waited for our other two classmates in the building's reception lounge when I clicked refresh and TA-DA "delivery successful" appeared (this was about 30-40 minutes after finishing my exam). I asked my friend well should I do it, soooo scared in case it showed something I didn't want to see. From inside my status screen I clicked register and followed the prompts, I only made it to the select your school and grad year page when upon hitting the "next" button a pop up appeared on my iPhone screen. "This candidate has previously passed this exam. A new appointment cannot be scheduled". At that moment tears began flowing down my cheeks . I couldnt believe it, my friend then decided ok my turn and again the same pop up !! Our third friend got the same pop up (she had 120 questions), we were over joyed but we were still waiting on our forth friend to come downstairs. She finally emerged after 3.5 hours (all 205 questions). We were eager for her to try the PVT but alas she forgot what her username and password was, so we all waiting word from her but in the meantime I cant wait for my license to appear on the BON for Pa site. I hope it shows soon!!!
For all the hopefuls it can be done and in the end you may never be able to fully prepare yourself for this exam but practice questions definitely help you get into the mind set of taking it :)
I can't believe it, I'm a
