    Passed on my first try -- 108 Questions

    I took the NCLEX-PN in California on March 25th 2015 and received 108 questions. Many of which were SATA questions, 2 drag and drops, 1 ped med math, and a majority of the rest being triage and Nurse on Nurse education and management. It took me around 1.5 hours to get it done, which had me panicked at first. I tend to be a fast test-taker, but I had actually tried to slow down and make sure. I reviewed my answers several times before submitting and still completed quickly. I tried the PVT 2 hours after the test, 6 hours, 12, 24, 36, and then once more 3 weeks later just to make sure. Each time, I got the good popup (which DID include going to the CC page and submitting a credit card. Yes, it's a gamble but I also used a maxed out card just in case so that it would decline it if it did fail) I received my letter today, April 27th; A month and 2 days (due to the weekend) after my exam date, stating that I had passed. :) To review: I literally only used NCLEX Mastery (RN version) and practiced every-day (even at the gym!!) around 80-120 questions at random on all subjects. I do have the Saunders PN review book and tried to use it + their online application but it was poorly coded, errored out a lot and didn't track my progress the way I wanted it to so I nixed it. I did NOT review the night before the test. Long term memory will never process if you cram it the night before. Good luck to all of you out there. I know you can do it! :)

    Would it be jumping the gun to call the bvnpt to see if my results had been received? I'm from CA. took the nclex on March 25th

    eligibility letter from bvnpt in california

    App sent the 26th of Jan, hear back around the 20th -ish of Feb, had a delay anyways because my school wasn't exactly great about proofreading our apps despite promising to review them with us before sending them out; required that I resubmit my ROC which cleared anyway but still! irritating and then I heard back again by March 9th (ish) and tested on the 25th with a good popup.

    NCLEX experience March 2015

    I was hoping the SATA bit was true. I had 1 math question and some how a bajillion SATA questions. Lots of delegation, and teaching fellow nurses about procedures and patient prioritizations as well. :\

    Took mine on the 25th and have tried the trick several times between yesterday and today just to make sure. Still the good pop-up. I'm breathing a sigh of relief. 🙂

    The exam shut off at 108Qs

    So, I took my first attempt at the NCLEX-PN today, I studied for a month straight using the Saunders book, and e-material as well as the NCLEX Mastery (RN version). I still felt under-prepared and now I'm super nervous about my results. I got the good pop-up because LOL, I couldn't help myself. But we'll see.
