  10. Passed NCLEX-RN In 75 Questions

    Thank you so much for the kind words! The Q bank login has been given away, but maybe that person will pass it on once she passes her NCLEX ?
  11. Passed NCLEX-RN In 75 Questions

    I looked through these discussion boards a lot while I was preparing for the NCLEX, and I told myself that I would come back to share my experience if i passed. I also wanted to share my experience because I got stressed out reading about others' pre...
