Just got home from taking my boards &, just like I expected, I don't feel like there's any chance in this world that I passed
! I don't feel like I spent even one minute in nursing school
, much less 2 years. Not to mention the last 8 weeks of busting my butt studying! I was nervous going into it, but felt ok. I feel like I caught some dreadful virus since! My head hurts & my tummy is all yucky! It took all I could do to hold my tears til I got out of the building. It took me 2 hrs. & 40 min. to answer 128 questions. I had alot of priority, but not as much as I expected...that's why I don't feel very good about it. I know those are supposed to be the higher level. Mostly got teaching on meds, precedures, when to intervene...that kind of stuff. I had 4 select all that apply & one dosage calculation on my 3rd question. Then it started having things that I had no clue about & ended up doing what I hope turns out to be good educated guessing! I honestly feel like I should go ahead & get back in the books to prepare for next time...
Anyway...sorry for the vent. I know this is a very repeated thing, but it feels better to get it out to folks that can relate!
