advise from cali nurses needed

  1. I am posting this up again, because I didn't get much feedback the first time. I would appreciate any feedback.Hi all. I am seeking advise. I just took my boards for the second time last thursday, march the 18th. I had 265 quest the first time, :stone ugg. And after studying with kaplan course and davis review on my own, I took my time, and finished with 227 questions this time around, sigh.I had an hour and a half left and the computer shut off.I felt I did well, but I expected fewer questions the 2nd time around. My last question was something like, what is the contraindication for Tuberculin skin testing, I don't remember the exact wording. The choices were, an hiv pt, a pt who has taken the BCg orally, a pt. with an infection, or a pt on a corticosteriod. I chose the steroid, I thought it was correct,but I am still wondering if I passed or not. It has been 8 days already, I called the board, they are always busy, nothing posted on the brn ca web page and nothing my snail mail. Can anyone give me some advice as to what might be the problem. Or if they know of similar situations and how it turned out, I would appreciate it.:uhoh21:

    In the BRN Report (like a newletter) they send out, they mentioned staff cutbacks due to budget cuts. Maybe that explains the delay!
    Good luck!!!!

    It can take a couple weeks so rest, relax and don't worry. It's done. You are driving yourself mad.
    Let us know when you hear though

    Hi Sharann,


    You said that it can takes couple of weeks to obtain the result by mail,I have a question o you think it's a bad sign when you have to wait for 3-4 weeks to obtain your result?I mean if the result is bad , they may give the answer later and when it's good they may send the result fastly,or there is no rules ?Thank you very much to answer me.
