Hi eveveryone,

So yesterday I finally took the NCLEX after the testing sites closed due to the infamous corona Virus. I was scheduled to test on 3/17 but was my test date was cancelled due to them closing all testing sites. To be honest, I felt lost after that. I stressed over because the next available appointment was in May. That was going to be way too much time for me to wait. I kept going on the website to see if anyone would maybe change their testing date. Eventually, the testing site where I live reopened. I saw that someone had changed their exam and I was able to reschedule my exam to April 2nd. I did start studying more for the NCLEX. Even two days before the exam. Let me tell you, I felt prepared as I have been studying for two months. The test was the hardest thing I have ever taking in my life. I got about 5 drag and drop questions about 25 SATA, No calculation questions, 6 graphic questions and the rest multiple choice. I did indeed end up getting all 130 questions. I kinda felt like I was very slow at answering the questions 2 hrs had passed and I was on question 65. I took a break to recharge, I kept getting harder questions than easy ones just a similar path. I started getting a headache. I was on question 130 and I still had 30 minutes left. It was very dumb of me because I was getting very stressed out about the time and ended up rushing through the second part of the test. After I was done, I went to my car and cried. I didn't even want to do the pearson vue trick after I got home because I already knew that I had failed. Today, I did do the pearson vue and got the "bad" pop up. Now, I am trying to figure out how to study this time. I still don't know if I passed or not. But, If I did not pass I will use this experience to do better next time managing my time and not rushing through the exam.

Hey! I’ve had my friend get the bad pop up and it was false! It’s not a for sure thing. If the exam is going harder then that’s usually a good indicator!
I know it’s hard, but try to not beat yourself up to much. Don’t get yourself down. Either way you’ll be a nurse soon! Best of luck 🙂

Yes, first time I took it. I think I'm probably gonna purchase uworld. I tried the demo and it looks just like the NCLEX. Like the screen and colors.
