I just might projectile vomit while waiting for my NCLEX-RN results

  1. 1
    seriously... I've got to wonder WHY IN GOD'S NAME California doesn't participate in "quick results". They could charge $40 for them here to make money for the BRN or Arnold Schwarzenegger or whoever... it wouldn't matter.. I would totally pay it to ease my mind!!!!!!!
    I took my NCLEX-RN in California yesterday at 1300 and have felt like projectile vomiting ever since. Do the people who work for the BRN understand that anxiety can cause hypertension which can lead to all sorts of problems? I wonder if anyone ever went into renal failure from severe hypertension resulting from extreme stress? I wonder if anyone ever had an MI while waiting for their results in California? This is only one day after taking it and I can't imagine having to wait much longer.
    Unfortunately I discovered that our college didn't mail our transcripts to the BRN until 1-7-2010 which means they only just got them this week. Oh yeah and did I mention that in the beautiful state of CA the BRN is not open on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Friday of the month? Oh yeah and that this Monday is a holiday? OMG I think I might die of a massive stroke before they even START to look at all of our results and transcripts on Tuesday next week...
    On a positive note, I DID get the "good pop up" when I tried to re-register on the PearsonVue website... I don't entirely trust that method although I noticed LOTS of threads all over the internet about how it works. *please God let it be true*

    I can't imagine......I didn't even shower and I barely got out of bed while I was waiting 48 hours for my results. I just felt so stressed that I was incapacitated. I also checked compulsively to see if the "good" pop up was still there...and now that I got my passing result, I keep checking the site to make sure that it still says passing. I should probably take a screen shot and make it my background.

    I was sure I had failed, BTW.....and the pop-up was accurate for me because I did not

    Bahaha! I keep doing the same thing too! I don't think I'll really be relieved until I see my name and license number on the website!

    me too! I've been checking a couple of times throughout the day... still nothing. I've been in contact with my classmates, some of whom took NCLEX-RN a week or two ago... we are all still waiting. I don't think they update the online license verification until midnight or something... guess there's nothing we can do but try to relax and wait

    I've only got to talk to 3 of them about it and they said they did get the good pop-up... stillllllllllll waiting. Today is day 6. Just checked the BRN license verification website.. still nothing. Even tried a few of my classmates names... one of them asked me to check it for her since she is at work and can't... I am hoping they are working on our stack of transcripts and exam results today...
    I had the GREATEST dream last night that I looked online and there was my name with a license # next to it!!!!! I hope that dream becomes reality soon...
