    The trick DOES work. I did my exam 2 days ago and, just to be sure, paid for the quick results. I passed. Now I am an RN in Canada AND America, YEE HAA! Good luck to all who are awaiting their results.

    Well, I shut off at 75 questions. Had a couple of meds, a couple of SATA, no maternity, 3 calc, very little growth and development, the meds I'd never heard of but had similar endings to ones we study, some questions on assignments. I can't remember too much since I feel like I was intellectually beaten up. I am a Canadian RN with 10 years experience, did Kaplan, 4000 practice questions, made up flash cards etc. but very little of the details were tested in my opinion. I just sat there thinking.....WHAT THE.....! Anyway, I went to the Pearson site which says "delivery successful", tried the trick and got the pop up. Cross your fingers. I won't rest until I see my name on the Board of Nursing website. Cheers and good luck to all!

    The darned test is one week from today and, although I seem to be doing well on prep questions, my anxiety seems to be going through the roof. Say a prayer for me that my poor heart doesn't give out before I even get a chance to take the test... lol.

    I take mine on the 30th. I am a Canadian RN who originally did an associates degree then went back to get my BSN. I've been practicing in community nursing for most of the 12 years of my career with a bit of palliative in there. I have reviewed each of the content areas from NCLEX for a few days and done close to 4000 questions and the Kaplan review. I would be really embarrassed if I didn't pass this since I've been a nurse for some time now. Also, I need to pass in order to be able to commence my Masters this fall in the US. Cross your fingers and say a prayer. I do have one question for past test takers. Where you able to bring food with you for your break? Where you able to bring any food or drink in with you? Cheers and good luck to all.
