    Unhappy NCLEX-RN: how many failed at 75 questions

    Just took the NCLEX and it stopped at 75 questions...did the review with Saunders and thought I knew my stuff pretty well. Now I'm less sure since the NCLEX was so hard. Was wondering how many people failed with a 75 question shut off.

    I had 75 questions, and passed. However, when I took the LPN boards, it was 'the whoooole day deal'.....everyone had to take all the questions.

    Hello,
    I'm sure by now you've received good news.

    A nurse I know told me the other day that someone in his class had to take NCLEX twice d/t failing twice and that he had 75 questions both times. Yikes, maybe he was just trying to scare me.

    I only had 75 questions and passed. This has nothing to do with if you pass or not. The computer gages if you are answering right or wrong most of the time to set a baseline.
    So you have probably passed, just check and see after a couple of days. Everyone I know that had 75 questions passed the first time, except one person.

    When I took the test it was explained to me that the computer knows by a formula if you will pass or not and doesn't provide you with a set number of questions until it is sure you have passed/failed. I took both LPN and RN boards, was an honor student and didn't feel like I passed either one until I had confirmation!!! It's a scary feeling when the computer shuts off. You have to study for the type of question and thinking skills they want you to have, not just nursing/pathophysiological knowledge.
