    Those things are very nice to do. I hope that someday, when I will be having my exams and have to wait for the results, I will remember to take some time for my self and relax a bit.

    Try not to focus on how much you want to VOMIT.

    Seriously, I'm waiting to TAKE the darn thing, and I'm so queasy...

    We're planning to visit my wife's sister and her hubby in Australia as soon as I take the NCLEX. If I can schedule it well enough I want to test one day and then leave on the next day. Three weeks in Brisbane, no worries mate. There will be plenty of time for the results and license to come through.

    You are always welcome at my house.

    Well, it's a year later, and now I'm no longer in Final Exam Anxiety Mode, but NCLEX Anxiety Mode: definitely a step ahead!

    But the cleaning thing still applies, LOL......

    I spend the time my kids are otherwise occupied alternating between practice questions on the computer and cleaning the house. Mostly at the computer, but....my laundry hamper doesn't have anything older than last night in it :wink2: .

    The house isn't as clean as it should be, but......let's say that during the 48 hours of "wait and see" it's gonna SPARKLE around here!!!

    Great thread! Can we get it cross-posted as a sticky in the NCLEX Discussion Forum?

    [font="trebuchet ms"]just thought i'd bump this up again, as so many members are awaiting test results---and getting a tad anxious before results come in!

    enjoy---and feel free to add to the list!

    I'm thinking this thread really should be moved to the NCLEX Discussion board...?

    Pick up a trashy novel you wouldn't be caught in public reading, and read it with a glass of wine in the tub just for the sheer pleasure of reading mindless drivel for fun instead of those nursing texts!

    After taking my boards I went to the beach! It took me 10 mins to get there haha! I sat there all day looking at women in bikini's! that sure did help me ALOT! Next I smoked alot and thought of how I failed! followed by more Bikini's! . I think the best way to help you forget about NCLex is have sex and sleep! have more sex and more sleep! lol! thank god for pearsonvue and the 2 days to find out if u passed!

    I just took the NCLEX-PN today and in CA we have to wait until the darn letter is mailed! Takes about 3 weeks according to classmates! I have NO idea what I am going to do with my time right now. I have a job 3 nights a week but for now I think im gonna get that sleep that I have been so deprived of over the last year and 3 months! :chuckle :Melody:

    We're on the same boat! I took my test last Aug. 22 and still waiting for my result. I've been going out with my friends, went clubbing, dancing, sleep overs(haha),shopping, went to a concert, cleaned the house, did gardening, and so on..Although I'm doing alot of things, I can't help but worry about my result once in awhile I've been having dreams that I passed so I guess that's a good sign
