1. I'm giving this forum a preemptive warning so that you may notify your local police departments ahead of time:

    I am all set to murder the national council licensure examination tomorrow at 8 am central daylight time.

    I refuse to be held responsible for any power grid failures in the Southern United States caused by me overwhelming the computerized testing with my sheer awesomeness.

    I'll see you guys in two days as an RN. No luck, no superstition, no appeals to higher authorities required. Just me and my favorite cranium-residing organ.

    Just got home from a long day (NCLEX was only a small part of it).

    General thoughts:

    • It shut off at 75 questions and the pearson vue "trick" is promising, but the post-test anxiety has set in from taking such an odd test.

    • I didn't keep a strict count, but I had roughly 8-10 SATA. They were actually easier than most of the SATAs I've had in school and practiced with.

    • No math or dosage calculations. I didn't pop open the calculator once.

    • Holy salmon, the infection control questions were never-ending! Maybe it didn't like my answers (I didn't particularly like the answer choices), but I swear I had at least 10 on this subject.

    • The Saunders CD question format was near identical to the real thing for anyone studying. The problem I see is that answer choices aren't nearly as obvious. On quite a few questions, I don't think the answer choices were worded well at all-- I had one question regarding beta blockers and considering I just helped my hospital rewrite core measures policies based on latest research and recommendations, I found myself questioning the test and wondering if the question was written prior to the national guidelines review or after it, as it would change the answer. It sucks to know too much some times. A curse I'll live with.

    All in all I feel a bit anxious waiting for Friday (at the earliest) to see my results, but I'm generally leaning towards confidence in passing.
