I'm gearing up to take boards again after failing 4 times. I am so stressed out and paniced/worried about failing for a 5th time. I have literally done at least 30,000 practice questions. I did Hurst in class, Hurst online, Kaplan in class, Kaplan online, saunders, lippincott, ati, mosbys, etc ... this time I even hired a private tutor. My tutor says that I have all the knowledge...it is just my stress and anxiety that gets the best of me while i am sitting in front of the computer.
I am trying to think of the positives right now, but all I keep thinking of is the "what ifs". What if i don't pass again? Should I keep trying? Can I keep working as a secretary on the floor I should be nursing at? Can I handle it emotionally?
So stressed out,
