Took NCLEX RN today...pretty certain I failed.

It was horrible. I don't feel like I knew any of the answers, the questions were terribly hard, and I feel so sad, frustrated, disappointed...:crying2:

The machine cut off at 75. I didn't feel like I had chance to prove myself. I just felt like I kept missing them over and over again and I wanted to keep trying. I figured eventually they would come to a subject I felt confident about.

I think my heart might be broken.:sniff:

I am going to go make myself a drink. :cheers:

Until you get your results you just can't predict how you did. Relax and good luck

You know the harder they are....the better you are doing. I know it is easier said then done but RELAX! Stop trippin........you know you passed and I am going to be the first to say CONGRATS!

I felt the same way when I took the PN NCLEX, please be positive, you never know. If you didn't pass, take it again. Don't give up.

Good LUCK,

I'm sure you did fine!! I had 5 friends take it within the last two days...3 of them got 75...2 got 265..they ALL thought they failed!! they've all found out that they've ALL passed!! Some of the girls were LPNs who left NCLEX-RN boards thinking they'd failed..but they all passed so far!!

I know how you feel, I think. I took it yesterday, too, got 75 questions, many of which seemed impossible -- I got *14* of those evil select-all-that-apply questions (after being *assured* by our NCLEX review instructor that no one gets more than 2-3 of them), questions about diseases I only had the vaguest inkling about, etc. Although I knew 5 of my classmates had just taken it and passed with 75 questions, I was convinced I failed. Found out this morning that I was wrong -- I'm an RN! How it happened, I do not have a clue, but it did. I'm hoping (and betting) that you will get the same happy surprise!

I know it's easier said than done but try not to borrow trouble -- you won't know for sure till you get your results.

Good luck!

Shoot, I don't know that I'd take any pointers from me. I don't even know if I passed yet.

Know infection control and precautions, know delegation, know the basic pathophys for every illness out there.
