Anyone know if getting the last question wrong at the 75 mark has anything to do with passing or failing........?

not really. It's how you did on the ENTIRE set of 75 questions....

If the questions got steadily easier, then maybe you didn't do so well...

If the questions got steadily harder and it shut off at 75, then as far as I'm concerned, Congratulations! You're an RN!

Keep us updated.

I am sure you did well. I have not heard of anyone failing with 75 questions. I am forwarding you something another nurse sent me which helped me understand how they do the test.

This really helped me understand what NCLEX does!

GOOD LUCK and CONGRATS! :)

Doesn't mean a thing. Suppose you got 74 right and missed the last one? Good luck! :)

I agree...remember 75 is the minimum # of questions, you have to take at least 75. :)

Thanks for all the encouraging words. I really needed it! I just found out today that I passed Boards via the BRN website, I am an RN! I waited so long for this and worked so hard to achieve this goal!

I really thought I failed that thing at 75! I had a horrible feeling that I bombed many of the questions especially the last 5, But I didn't! I literally came home and looked up all the questions that I could remember, I was driving myself crazy. For all of you still waiting for your results, I wish you the best! The odds are in your favor.....85% passing rate for those educated in the US and taking the test for the first time.

A little break down of my test:

pharm questions

Lots of priority questions

room cohorting

OB

Diets

hanniebabes99, to answer your question:

I took the Test in California on Monday, July 26 and found out today, the 29th, via the BRN website, my name came up at about 7 am this am! Apparently they update Mon-Fri. Keep checking! Good Luck. You more than likely passed! Congrats in advance.

Seelo, RN

How long is the NCLEX-RN certificate valid? I mean I know someone who passed it in 1995? Is it still valid?

You don't get a certificate, you get a license from the state where you took the NCLEX for. Once you pass the NCLEX exam, it is good for life. It never has to be retaken. A refresher course may be in order if the nurse hasn't worked in the field since 1995.
