Took NCLEX today 2/16/09 ....265 questions.=(


Hello Everyone,

Im new to the forum but wanted to see what people had to say about the NCLEX. i took it today n i felt horrible bc i had the full 265 questions. I feel like i fail bc i hear that the chances of passing with 265 are very low. I dont know if anyone has any info that u can give me pls let me know. THis is the first time taking it and im now wondering what are my chances of passing. The only thing i hear is that i might be borderline n that the last question determines whether u pass or not. im sure i answered the last question right but i wonder if it is consider a passing question or not. dont know if anyone has any information pls share them with me. Thank you!

I including 3 of my classmates took the nclex in the last two weeks. We all went to 265 and we all passed! Have faith and good luck!

Good for you- you can relax now and I know it's hard to do, but you deserve it after that, and remember to keep us posted- ;)

Aww dont feel bad. I know some people failed with 75 questions and some passed with 75 questions. Therefore, taking the maximum questions of 265 does not mean you failed. Good luck =)

Dont worry, i took 75 questions and came out feeling like i failed. I ended up passing....but i think the majority of people come out feeling badly, no matter how many questions. i only know 2 people who took it with 265 and both of them passed! keep us posted.

Most test takers would feel the same way but came out passers. It seems like you're on a haze afterwards. Think positive, you've already given it your best and that's the most important.

I took my NCLEX on Feb 11th (Wed) and answered all 265 questions. I just knew that I had failed. On Fri. 13th, I passed. Received my license in mail Sat 14th. I'm sure you did well. Good luck
