I got to the testing center around 730, and sat in my car until 15 till 8. I took one last look at lab values, and went in. A few other people were waiting, and we waited until about 815 until the center opened.
I got checked in, and began the tutorial around 830. After the tutorial (and before beginning to answer the test), I did a brain dump. I did all lab values, and med levels that I rememered as well as endocrine (Hypo/hyper thyroid, Hypo/Hyper parathyroidism, Cushings and addisons), which made me feel better.
I started the actual testing around 845 or so, and finished with 75 questions at about 920. I got a lot of priority (who would the nurse see/call back first), and delegation (What is the most approp. activity for the NA to complete...) and NO med calculations. I had quite a few meds but they weren't absolutely impossible to answer. I knew at least 1/2 of the meds and the other half, you could mostly use the name of the med to figure it out.
I did not walk out crying or feeling crappy, I feel confident (although I think if I'd not hung out on here and found out that I will get 1/2 wrong regardless of pass/fail I would have been in tears!), although I am not happy about having to wait 48 hours to find out (I'm impatient!).
I plan to take the next two days to RELAX!
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE TODAY. I learned that although stressful, the actual test was not as tough as I'd had drilled into my brain. It took thinking, but I used the info. from nursing school
and felt confident in the answers.
