I took mine today and I'm scared to death. I was always a strong student in school and I'm really worried. When the computer didn't shut down at 75 I panicked. I know that you can still fail at 75, but I thought I was prepared. Last time I looked it was at 104 and it shut down shortly after that. Other people I've talked to acted like it was no big deal, but I thought it was really hard. I just didn't feel like any of the answers really popped out as being "the right one". I'm usually able to narrow it down to 1 or 2 answers on a test, but not on the NCLEX. I can't even remember any of the questions I had. I just don't know what to think. I am going to be a nervous wreck until those results are posted. I think what scares me the most is that I don't know where to begin as far as preparation for a 2nd NCLEX. Good Luck to everyone else!!! :uhoh3:

I'm a realist, so I'm not going to tell you, "don't worry, don't think about it". one thing that helped me have peace of mind & relax after taking the NCLEX for the dreaded "2 business days after" was trying to remember some questions & looking them up. Fold a piece of paper in half & keep count of how many you got right vs. wrong of those you remember (BUT DON'T SHARE YOUR QUESTIONS W/ANYONE ELSE!!! remember they want you to maintain strict confidentiality related to the NCLEX).

I can totally relate to how everyone feels after they take the NCLEX because now I can relate....The computer shut off at 85 questions and I was sooo nervous after reading some of the stories on here but I guess the only thing I can do now is wait patiently.

My experience...I got to the test center pretty early today and sat in my car for about 15 minutes before I went in. I was soo nervous and I couldn't help to take a look at some notes that I brought with me. That helped me calm down a bit just reviewing lab values in the car. lol. I went in, didn't have to wait, and before I knew it I was taking the dreaded test.

By question #40 I remember thinking..."I have absolutely NO clue how I am doing!!? I think I am guessing on every question!!" Then on question 75 I paused a bit, thought about a few of my classmates that did pass at 75, then pressed the "next" button...thinking...HERE IT GOES!!

...and the computer shut off at 75. I coulnd't believe it. I had joined the 75 Question club. 1 hr and 15 min later I was out of the building in my car and freaking out on my drive home.

I think I failed. I am sooo scared!! I don't want to go through with this again! It is soo true that I feel even worse afterwards than before I took the exam. The wait is just agonizing. I plan on keeping reaaaally busy tomorrow.

This totally stinks!:uhoh21: I just want to move on...

it's the morning of 7/12. of course i already checked quick results. i'm not sure why i did because i know the results wouldn't be in yet.

i'm going to try and stay busy today. i tried to recall some of my questions but when you get 265 your brain turns to mush and recall is impossible.:uhoh3:

good luck everyone!

Hi, 265-club. Pleased to be one of your newest members.

I checked already, too. I'm kinda glad I'm scheduled to work later, kill some time and maybe get myself used to the idea of working as CNA.

My take on the whole thing is: Some of the questions seemed like sure-shots (means nothing), some seemed ambiguous (especially narrowed down to two good choices or four lousy-seeming choices), and some seemed simply impenitrable. I have a really crummy overall feeling about my prospects. Most people feel this way afterwards, and I dread the idea that I may end up being the odd one whose feelings are proven to be accurate.

There were waaayyy too few obvious Maslow-happy choices, is all I'll say about the content. :angryfire

I'm too excited to type neatly, because I PASSED THE DAMNED THING!

I found out the wierdest way - my friend who was testing the same day, but at a different site, called me from her work to congratulate me. Apparently her supervisor went and looked, and then showed her where to look. She then typed my name in, and Whala!

This is pretty surreal. I did a "print screen" on the licensure verification screen that has my name and license number and issue date, and pasted it into a .doc, just so I can return to it and look at it throughout the day.

So, erm, does 265 questions mean I've done all the overtime I'll need to? :chair:

Hang in there, everyone. I'm checking back to see everyone else's reactions!
