75 Questions. I'm in the same boat. And I've chewed my fingernails to nubs.

  1. Well, It is amazing to hear how many people are going and have gone through what I'm going through this very moment. I took the exam yesterday. I spent the entire day reading through forums like this. I nearly fainted when I got cut off at 75, because, well, I just wasn't doing good. I know i missed at least 3...and the rest.. I have no clue. I didn't get any cardiac and several questions were on drugs that I just didn't know.
    I keep checking the Board of Nurse Examiners web page every 30 minutes for my name, and I have this sick sick feeling it just isn't going to be there.
    Does anyone know how often they update those RN verification pages?

    calm down, take a deep breath. remember you did your best. the regular BON update is every friday (CA BON site) altho they may update names or etc everyday. dont be stressed out with not finding your name on the bon site, it is very early. sometimes you dont see your result on bon site due to some delays like fingerprint cards, documents that hasnt been processed or received.

    i am congratulating you in advance. be positive.

    I agree; don't sweat it. the exam is done and i to am awaiting mine from 12/28/06. my nails are still there though i too did not know most of the meds and uses so i guessed more than not. the questions were greek to me and i broke down in my car. i truly understand but nothing can be certain until you get the results. the best of luck to you.
