hi. twanab. you know what, im feeling the same way too. i studied the book for 2 straight months, and i studied the CD for 1 1/2 months. so all in all, i studied for 3 1/2 months. i thought i was all ready, but when i was in the testing area it seemed like i forgot everything i have studied, i didnt even get to use the Maslow's Hierchy, ABC, or anything that would help you eliminate the right answer; i was mental blocked. when i looked at the time on the computer screen i started to panic because i was only around 60 questions and i already spent an hour and couple of minutes so i was thinking what if i get all 205 questions and i ran out of time, so what i did was, i tried to hurry, i tried to answer as much questions as i can, and the computer stopped at 85, if i only knew the computer would stop at 85 i should've taken my time!!! my last question was very easy, BUT i dont even know if i had it right, it was about OUTPUT! (not intake and output, it was only OUTPUT!) and when i answered it- clicked next, the computer shut off. i wanted to cry so badly, i wanted more questions, because the more questions you get the more chances to pass, so i was thinking why didnt they even give me a chance to prove myself; and after the questions stopped at 85, the survey appeared on the screen, so i had to hold my tears until i left the testing area. i felt like i did really really bad, and that during those times that i'm answering question i felt like i was just dreaming, like i was just really out of my mind. so i sat in my car for couple of hours because i couldn't drive i felt like if i drive right away i'm gonna get into an accident. i cried and cried all day long, i keep on having these dreams about the board exam, the questions on my exam keep on popping out of my head when im sleeping, so i wake up in the middle of the night writing everything i could remember, and i tried to look it up, BUT my answers were all wrong!!! i'm just really praying that there will be a miracle . I know for a fact that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. i'm not stressing about the wait time because i have a friend who took it the day before i took my test and she still hasnt gotten any results yet, by the way she stopped at 89. so we're just thinking that the techinician is very busy.
anyway, i took my boards on the 17th on MARCH, and until now i havent gotten any result yet. i keep on calling bvnpt to follow up about my result and they finally gave me an answer, they said that they will be mailing it on friday (the 13th of APRIL) it's gonna be almost a month now. im just really praying and hoping that i pass it. i hope this waiting time will be worth it. everybody keeps on asking me if i'm already a licensed nurse; i can't even go to my boyfriend's house anymore because i dont want all of them to ask me same questions (his family including all of his relatives know that i already took my board exam a long time ago but until now there's still no result); because when my boyfriend's sister and his cousin (which is unfortunately we all went to same nursing school
) took their exam, it only took them 2 weeks to wait for the results, and so now they're thinking whats taking mine so long... so now, i'm trying to look for a job so that i can keep myself busy.
