    oh how exciting!! Stoked for you!! YAY!!

    dawg, back in the dinosaur age, when i sat for boards, we had to travel to our state capitol, (no matter how far away that was) sit for boards for 8 hours a day, in a giant room full of nurses,
    x 3 days, (we all filled the hotels in the capital, 100s and 100s of freaked out student nurses, just masses of us..)
    then, after testing for 24 hours, zero feedback whatsoever,
    we drive all the way back to our homes
    and wait....seems like it was months til we got envelope telling us the result.

    In those months, tons of rumors went around. "If you get a BIG envelope, that's good, it hold the certificate.."
    "If you get a BIG envelope, that's bad, it holds the forms to re-apply to take the boards."

    I was due to deliver a baby same week the envelope was due to arrive. I kept hoping, "Oh, i hope i deliver the baby first, cuz, if i flunked the boards, when they hold up my baby, i might still moaning around how i flunked the boards..."

    well, the baby arrived the day before the envelope. It was a big envelope. I didn't want to spoil the thrill of bringing home my new baby with news i'd flunked the boards..
    Took me hours to open it. Hours. I had to call my mom, who talked me into opening it. Took her a long time.

    I still remember that thrill, i'd passed. BET IT IS THE SAME THRILL YOU HAVE, TOO!! HEARTIEST CONGRATS!!!


    and how long after the test, do you find out?
