I just got done taking the NCLEX-RN exam today. I took it at 8 am and was finished at 930 am. I received only 75 questions and it cut off. I hope that is a good sign because I’m torn between the feeling of feeling like I passed and feeling like I failed. One minute I feel “yeah I think I passed” and then “oh crap but I did get this one wrong”.
I’ve heard getting 75 questions is a good sign BUT NCLEX stresses that it doesn’t matter because someone who gets 75 questions can easily fail like some who got 75 and passed. On question 74, I was praying that it would cut off because I couldn’t take it anymore. I think I have burnt myself out on NCLEX questions.
Gosh I can’t believe I have to wait until Saturday to find out my results!! It will be the longest 48 hours of my life. Luckily, I have to work tomorrow from 11-7pm so that will keep my mind occupied. When I took the exam there were only 5 other people there testing and only one other person was taking the NCLEX….others where taking tests to become teachers and pharmacists. I guess 8 am isn’t a popular time for people to take tests. I’m a morning thinker so I embrace morning test times.
When I took it they took my photograph and fingerprint. I ended up scanning my fingerprint like 4 times before it is all said and done. Also, they checked my pockets and shoes. I had to spit out my gum and take off my watch. They are pretty darn serious about it. I guess that is good because it keeps it fair.
Saturday I will let you all know if I passed. Hopefully, I did! Good luck to everyone else out there taking it!
