Post-NCLEX Stats

Number of Questions: 75
Time I entered testing room: 0748
Time I left testing room: 0907
Estimated actual testing time (excluding instructions & post-test questionnaire): 1 hour

Thought as I started: "Wow, my heart rate is really high. *Checks carotid artery* Yep, pretty high. I could stimulate my vagus nerve to lower it... Or I could attempt carotid massage but only Dr's are supposed to do that. I definitely shouldn't be given Adenosine because there is no crash cart nearby. Hmm... I probably should answer this question..."
Thought as I ended: "Already? You didn't even give me a chance to pass! Argh! Just one more question, please! I'll do better, I promise!"

Well, I'd better get started on all the homework, papers, and projects I've been using NCLEX as an excuse to avoid. Test results should be in Wednesday!

Christy! I'm sure you did well...75 is a good sign and definitely less stressful than the 120+ I got lol. I actually don't remember the number it shut off on, but I do remember it was a question I didn't know the answer to. But, now it's over for both of us ;)

As I was doing practice nclex questions all evening, I was thinking of you... But guess what, Christy! You made it to the top of the mountain,you reached the climax in your nursing education career! Now... enjoy the beautiful view and all the sweat it took to climb the mountain and breath in some fresh air...

Yay! Even if you don't know the results, it's good to have the test behind you!

Blessings!
