Passed NCLEX-RN in CA!

  1. Well, I did it! I passed my boards and I am now a new male nurse or Murse in the RN field in southern California. It was my first try and it took me around 135 to 140 questions. I don't remember the exact number but it was around there. I felt like crap because the test threw me meds I swear I never heard about and a good amount of peds questions which was one area I was pretty lax on in my studies.

    I felt even more pressure to pass this test because I was working under my IP already for about 3 months in an ICU and was pretty settled in at the hospital I work at and I got to know everybody and I didn't want to go through that experience of telling them I failed and look incompetent in a way. So for anyone reading this....take your boards first before you get a job. It will lessen the stress.

    Oh yeah, and pray. I found that really helped me get through those 2 grueling days of waiting. God Bless to all of you and Thank you God again! Have a good day/evening everybody!
