    Less than 72 hours until test day

    Since I am testing on Thursday will it be possible for me to get my results by Sat or will I have to wait until Monday? I don't think I could stand waiting the entire weekend.

    I don't know if I should keep studying or stop now. I feel like I don't even know what else to study and that I am starting to chase my tail at this point. It seems like no matter what there is something that I just don't know. I am afraid that I am going to start to confuse myself if I keep this up.

    I was always a good student in NS, never failed a test and managed to maintain a B+ all the way through. I passed the ATI exit with a 99% chance of passing NCLEX but I don't know if that means anything and I have been using Saunder's questions to study since second semester!

    (Boo hoo!) I don't know what else to review and I am starting to freak out which isn't a good thing.

    I am feeling pressured to pass since I need to work so bad and it's starting to get to me. I also don't want to fail because I have a few nurses in the family and they all passed the first time. I would be so embarrassed if I failed and everyone keeps asking me when I am taking boards. I wish I could go hide somewhere until I know I passed.

    Can I stop studying now or should I go on for another day?

    I need some help to calm down because my nerves are starting to get to me now

    Ack! I feel like I am walking the plank!

    I feel your pain LOL...I test Friday and I feel myself starting to panic. I'm trying not to since that does no good at all. I'm focusing on pharm and well, just learning to make good choices when I have to guess. I was a 4.0 graduate and I will be mortified if I don't pass. I have done 3500+ questions and aiming to do 4000 by Wed. I test Fri so no studying Thurs. My teacher told me the more questions you do the better prepared you'll be. Only restudy your weak areas etc. Okay, taking a food break so I don't have altered nutrition

    You will get them on Saturday..I got mine on Sunday. They came up exactly 48 hours from the time I FINISHED the exam.

    It sounds as if you are ready. I would stop studying if I were you but that is my .02!!!

    Good luck!

    All, I took my test for RN on Friday Jan 4th. Results on Sunday Jan 6th. I passed. I feel so much relief specially since I took a position on CCU and started on Dec 30th.

    I wish everybody else success and if not please try again.

    Thanks for the support

    I just got back. I had tons of priority questions, 1 dosage calculation, about 7-8 meds, 4 SATP, no delegation. Stopped at 102. Pure torture! I said I wasn't going to waste my money but I'll definately be paying $8 in 2 days to find out! I don't feel the practice questions helped at all honestly.
