    hica - i know the waiting is awful - if possible, try to keep yourself as busy, though i know it's not easy - i forced myself to go to the movies, reorganize closets, anything i could do to try to take my mind off of the waiting. anyway, i hope you will get an answer soon. hang in there! turtlegirl

    woke up this morning feeling totally depressed, since i'd taken my exam way back on 7/3 and 4 days later, still didn't have a license posted online at the california brn website. everyone i know has seen theirs up within 3 days. i thought i'd check again this morning and my name and license number were there! i am still in shock, because i have spent the last few days (of my vacation no less) crying, worrying, not eating, analyzing questions i remember in my head, etc, absolutely certain that i had no hope of passing. 75 questions, 10 select all, not as many priority/delegation questions as i would have thought, only a few med questions, all i could remember were the ones i know i got wrong. anyway, i am so relieved right now, that i had to post. being able to vent at this site and learning that everyone goes through the same worries with this test, really helped me get through yesterday. just wanted to say thanks!

    hi ana - thx for your input - just having others to vent to is helping, though i am still having major anxiety over whether or not i passed - i did call the brn today (a few times!) and was told that all my paperwork's up to date. one of the operators told me that they hadn't gotten any exam results for anyone this week, while another one said she hadn't heard that, but that they don't necessarily post licenses online within a specific time frame. everyone i know that has taken the CA brn within the last two weeks has had their license online within 3 - 4 days. anyway, i have a sinking feeling that i did not pass and will have to forfeit a great position i'm supposed to start on monday. i'm still in shock over not having done very well. i was getting really high scores on all my prep tests and felt pretty well prepared. i know i just let myself get freaked out during the test and rushed through. i would definitely advise taking your time with each question and taking a break if you feel yourself starting to freak. best of luck to you!

    hica19,
    i am feeling that whole "fear of the unknown" thing, too. i feel like such a pest, but i called the brn again, this time to check on my paperwork and was told that all was in order. i asked if it was true that they had not received any test scores this week (which is what the previous operator told me), but this one said she had not heard that and that the brn doesn't have a set time frame as to how long it will take to post new licenses on line.
    hang in there!

    yeah, i'm wondering if the select all are considered just "content" questions, which would suck since they are so difficult.

    thanks!

    just wondering if having a lot of select all questions is a good thing? i must have had 10 or so (out of 75 questions). still awaiting results. thanks!

    Hi - Thanks, I think I will call the BRN again to check on my paperwork (that is, after I go in for this physical today)! I am trying to think positively about the test, but it has been really difficult. I'm glad I found this website, because it is helpful to know that almost everyone goes through these emotions after taking the NCLEX. It helps to be able to vent to others going through the same thing, because I am surely driving my family and friends crazy! Best of luck to you! Lily

    hello - i'm new to this site - i'm also wondering if anyone else who took the test in california on monday, 7/3 has found out their results yet - i really think i blew it and have been a mess ever since, but i feel like i can't move on until i know for sure - i'm supposed to go in for a preemployment physical today and i'm wondering if i should just cancel it! ugh!
