I want to scream

  1. I just took my boards today and I am a total wreck. I had 132 questions and I don't know what to make of it. A lot of the questions were off the wall. I have a really bad feeling about this. I did thousands of questions and it did'nt seem to help.

    I JUST WANT TO SCREAM!!! Thanks just needed to vent, everbody at home is tired of listening so I needed to find some new listeners.

    The test is over. You will not accomplish anything by beating yourself up over it now. As hard as it is, you just need to relax, take the days till you find out how you did (which is probably just fine) as they come.
    Get drunk, get laid, get whatever you want...just enjoy the next few days as you wait. The test is over, you can do nothing about it now. So, why turn yourself into a wreck over it.

    And if screaming helps (it often does), go scream all you want.

    I am sure you did fine, in a few days you will be back telling us all you passed.

    I remember those boards except they were not on the computer when I took them.............showing my age. I thought for sure I failed but I was a long way off. Passed quite high. Don't get discouraged. Hang in there. I found comfort with other nurses who were in the same worry boat.

    Love Nascar too!

    Thanks everyone, Feel much better now went shopping and had a few drinks. All I can do is wait and see!!
    You passed... the least amount is 85 questions and the most is 200 something .... yes off the wall sounds just about right...
    Dont beat yourself up over it, the hard part was just getting there... Have faith in yourself , You went and you conquered.
    There were 3 of us that took our boards at the same time and to be honest when mine shut off I went immediatly in tears and almost hyperventilated , I looked around and the two others that were there with me that I knew had the same tears running down our face... WE ALL PASSED... It would be much nicer to the nervous system and GI system if it would just slap you upside the head if you failed or whistled when you passed lol
    Good Luck to you and dont worry.. The worst is over.
    I think the max is 265, but I'm sure that the minimum is 75. That's how many I had. There's nothing you can do now... Just relax, and enjoy this time where there's no homework, orientation, or CEU's! Good luck to you, and please keep us posted!
