    I'm getting nervous now. I took my physical last week and took a picture for my badge (it's so ugly). It's begining to feel real now. I still can't believe that I am not going back to school next semester...that I'm done with school (at least for now). I am also still waiting for the ATT to come in the mail so I can finally take the boards. I'm really anxious about that. I hope I pass...in school I was the queen of 'cram-dom' :chuckle:. I was reading Kaplan's NCLEX review book and I read that that won't work on the NCLEX. I really hope that I can do this....anyway, see you at orientation Missy

    Hey, lady, you will be fine.... honest. I just wanted to get mine done as fast as possible...I ended up cramming for my NCLEX-RN, never took a review course and when I was doing it I just kept thinking to myself about the ABC's and patient safety. They gave me lots of strange maternity and AIDS questions and it was mostly scenarios of "you have 4 patients and you are just coming on shift, which of these 4 patients would you see first"... I know you are scared, been there before...when you get that ATT just call them up and take the first date you can and get it over with. Then you'll be psychotic for a while til you find out, but at least the test taking part will be over with. You'll be fine tho...just read the questions carefully, take your time but don't overanalyse them.

    I still have to get my physical done and get the badge and all... Gotta talk to Chuck today as I have a few questions. The acceptance letter they sent me has the wrong payrate on it! Also moving alot of my stuff this week, and this weekend will be in a wedding.... when it rains it pours! Cya in July! Good luck!

    Hey Missy! I have my NClex on Wednesday!!! and hopefully :crossfingers: I will be an RN by the time I start! I'm so looking forward to it! I know the night of July 11th I won't get any sleep due to the anxiety though. See ya there! Did you get a chance to shadow a shift? It's probably too late but I don't think it really matters. On the day of your physical be prepared to take your badge picture. I didn't know that I was to take my badge picture but I didn't want to drive another 45 minutes to go home and come back another day all spiffed up. So I went ahead and took it and it's HORRIBLE. The lady told me that when I get my RN to come back and that she would add it onto the badge. Hopefully I can just take a whole new pic!:chuckle: Anyway see ya then

    I know I will be nervous as heck too on the 11th. Badge photos always look horrible. So did you dress up professionally when you went in for your physical? I have mine on Wednesday too... But I know you will do great! Cya soon!
