Took NCLEX yesterday

Posted

I was wanting to see if anyone could give me some insight:

I took my NCLEX yesterday. I didn't tell anyone I was taking it (not friends, mom, dad...nobody) because I had already made myself sick (couldn't eat or sleep for days) just knowing it was coming up.

I must have had 50 SATA questions. They just kept hammering me. I felt like I knew absolutely nothing. At question #30 I was ready to leave. I wanted it to be over. My test shut off at 75.

Today my IPN was cancelled on the BRN website. I did the Pearson Vue trick and got this:

I am in California and heard the trick doesn't work here?? I don't know what to think. I can't wait weeks to find out. This has been my life dream. I don't know what to think of it all.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You PASSED!!! I have mine in 3 weeks here in Florida. Did you use Kaplan?? Thanks

I am not convinced that I did though since my IPN has been cancelled. The BRN updated my cancelled IPN but did not post a license so I am freaking out a bit. :( Thank you though. I love your positive thinking. I did take Kaplan. Congrats and good luck on your test.

Don't be scared!!! Just wait for the official letter. I only know that when you get that pop up that means you passed!!! I wish you the best!!! I hope you license will be posted tomorrow!!!!

You must have passed. If you didn't, I didn't either since I got the same message. You probably will be able to find out your result by tomorrow. I have to wait 1 or 2 more days since I just took my exam this afternoon. I also had 75 questions but with only 20 SATAs.

Anyway, kudos to your (highly likely) passing!

I hope it's right then and we both pass!

Congrats! What resources/prep did you use for NCLEX? Did it help? I'm taking mine in two weeks.

Thank you! I used Kaplan, I'll let you know if it worked or not when I find out for sure if I passed. I'm still confused with Interim permit being cancelled by the BON.

Hi. The same thing happened to me in California. Took the exam yesterday, I have a canceled IP today and received the same "good pop up" have you heard anything yet?

I'm in CA also. Checked BRN this am and I passed!!!!!! It cancels because you took your test. Pearson Vue trick worked for me! Hoping it works for you too! Wishing you lots of luck. It took them less than 48 hours to post :)

Looks like Kaplan worked. I passed! Good luck to you. I only used Kaplan but I know others have used other helpful materials. Also, the NCLEX study guide posted on this site is VERY helpful!!!!!

You were right....I passed! Thanks so much. And to answer your question, I used Kaplan :)

Thank you!!!!

Awesome! Overall, was NCLEX harder/easier than you thought? How were the questions compared to Kaplan? Thanks again

Honestly I heard that taking Kaplan makes the questions on the NCLEX much easier because Kaplan questions are so difficult. I found much comfort in this. However, I personally felt it was much more difficult than Kaplan. There was nothing easy about it :( Hardest test of my life!
