Ugh... Just got back home from taking the NCLEX PN. The test stopped at question 92 and I feel miserable!! I had a ton of OB questions which OB is my weakest subject as well as a bunch of the critical thinking priorities of care questions. I remembered and looked up the last question I had before the computer shut off and I got it right. I just hate the waiting lol I don't know what I'll do if I failed :o

Would you give me $500 if I could guarantee you passed?

You are worrying for nothing. You passed.

Mine shut off at 79 questions and I went home crying, certain I had failed. All that fear for nothing...I'm sure you passed. Remember, the NCLEX throws in a number of test questions that are not part of your actual score. So, the ones you were worried about may not even have mattered.

Have faith- I'm sure you did fine....and worse case scenario- you can retest if you failed. I coach quite a few through their RN NCLEX and so far they've all passed after the coaching. Best of luck

Hey Ben I'm waiting too. I took the NCLEX PN today too, it shut off at 85 Q's and I can't remember the last question. I had a ton of Drug questions which happens to be my worst subject. (do you think they have inside info?) anyway Good luck I hope you find out soon that you passed.

Haha probably at this point I would give you $500 dollars if you could guarantee I passed!

That's a good point, they probably do have inside info lol. I hope you did well today, I'm sure you did! As for me I'm just trying to make the time pass by. How did you all get your mind off of the "What if I failed" thought that went through your mind while you were waiting for your results? Thanks to everyone who has responded I greatly appreciate your support

:monkeydance: Feeling kind of punkish here as I just took my NCLEX 2 hours ago. I was top of my PN class with no real worries. However, I have been in a panic-like state for the last 3 weeks worrying about the exam. With sick kids and dogs to boot, there had been no time to study. I was stopped at 85 questions and there was no decernable deviation between questions (harder/easier). I expected more variety so I am concerned that I was getting the same area of questions wrong. 46 hours to go before I find out how I did. Would love to get this sick feeling out of my stomach for a few hours at least. :uhoh3:
