Wooooo Hooooo!!!! Congrats!!!! Isn't that SUCH a weight off your shoulders??? Man, I can remember my boards like they were yesterday, and felt just the same as you! Welcome to the world of nursing, YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT!!!!
Okay, for those of you still waiting for your results, or are getting ready to take the NCLEX-PN or NCLEX-RN, here's my experience.
I took my LPN boards about 5 years ago now, and it shut off at 85 (the minimum for the PN).... and I passed!
I took the RN boards 4 years ago, it shut off at 75 (and only 45 minutes), and was sure I failed. Guess what?? I passed those too! So.... they say that the numbers are randome, but I'm convinced the early shut off means a passing test!
Not to make anybody feel like poop here, but.... thought you might get a chuckle out of my motto as I waited so impatiently for my results after having BOTH boards shut off at the minimum questions..... When anyone asked me if I thought I passed and what number it shut off at, I replied, "Well, it shut off at the minimum... so I'm either a bloomin' idiot, or a damn genious!"
Guess I'm a genious! LOL LOL LOL
I wish you all the best of luck!!!! And congrats to all you new nurses!!!!
