My test shut off at 85 questions, the lowest amount of questions possible. That doesn't mean I passed, but it is a strong indicator that I did well. While the offical word is that the number of questions answered is not an indicator of pass/fail, it would be fairly hard to answer so many wrong in the first 85 questions that you eliminate all possibility of passing.

I may have...there are a lot of drugs I had not heard of, or at least didn't reconize, and some words I could not define.


Still, I feel fairly confident that I passed, and 5 other students in my class had tehir tests shut off at 85 as well, and all of them passed as well. I understood 95% of the questions, and I feel like I answered at least 80% of them (if not more) intelligently. The ones I didn;t know outright I was able to make educated guesses at.


I won't get the unofficial results until after 6pm tommorrow, and the offical results wiht a licence number for 3-4 weeks. I'll post here as soon as I get my results tommorrow though.

That's a pain. I thought one of the great benefits of testing on a computers (that sounds like what you did) was that you would get your results immediately.

What are you doing to not think about it for the next 21 hours? [Big Grin]

My most sincere congratulations, I can only imagine what that feels like, though hopefully soon I will be able to relate.

But enough about me, you rock today! [Big Grin]

Thanks guys. This has been a long road for me, and I wasn't sure that it would happen at times.

It's funny....today feels normal in most ways, but in other it feels like my life has restarted. It has felt like I was on pause for the last year and a half, since I left Penney's.

Now to find a job. [Big Grin]

Oh, you won't have any problem finding a job in the nursing field, I suspect. [Smile]

Thanks....I am applying the the VA next week, that's for sure. Good pay, good facilities, a population that appreciates the care, and outstanding room for growth.

A new clinic opens in a few months, and it is about 25 miles away from here. Some of the houses I have been looking at are between here and there, and in 6 months or so I plan on sending my wife back to school to finish her degree.

Well, that's out. The VA had posted on it's website that they even accept Graduate Nurses, which are nurses in between graduating and passing their NCLEX, but that is only partially true.

They accept graduate RN nurses, in a limited role at one time period a year.

They expect/demand 1 years experience for LPN applicants.


So much for the VA treating LPN's well.
