Wow. I didn't really anticipate feeling this anxious. Just took the NCLEX this morning. Shut off at 75. Really didn't feel confident with many answers. Lots of sata, and medications that i didn't know. Really felt it could go either way. Got the good pop up from pearson vue and it's really the only thing controlling my anxiety right now. Everyone says not to sweat it if you get the good pop up....but I'll feel a whole lot better when I see my name with an RN number next to it.

I don't really have a question. Just that this site has helped to serve as an outlet for my nervous energy today.

Everyone says the Pearson trick works so I'm going to stick with that!

Not really any advice because I haven't taken the NCLEX yet (I graduate in December, so sometime after then!) but I was talking to a nurse today about it and she told me the more SATA questions you have, the better you are doing because those are higher-level thinking questions.

That is good to hear. I feel like I had at least 12 sata. It's just so weird. Usually I have a good sense of how I do on tests. But with this one...I am at a loss. I would be in much worse shape if it wasn't for the pearson trick.

And I'm not really an anxious type of person.

Thanks for the message.

hey! I felt exactly the same way you did! I was so anxious and still felt bad even though I got the good pop up.... Relax! You will see your name on the site soon :)

Just found out this morning that I PASSED!!!!!!

Was hoping to find out yesterday. And shocked to see that they update the BRN for Saturday. I thought I'd have to wait til Monday. Thank GOD I don't!

You know....everyone's message about the Pearson Vue trick is the same. Got the good/bad pop up, i hope it is/is not true. Mine included. Unless people have been through the rigors of this they have no idea the torment that we feel waiting. Sometimes it just helps to talk and share with people in the same boat...even if all those people are saying the same thing.

Congrats to everyone that passed - and to those who didn't, including one of my classmates, don't give up. It will all be worth it when you do pass.

Thanks to all who posted on my message.
