I am new and sad....

  1. I have been popping on here for awhile .. just reading around and finally decided to join .. I need the support! I went and took my lpn boards ... awfulest day of my life I swear .. after hearing about everyone else having their machine turn off at 85-86-87.. I started in with the panic attacks at question 87. I cried starting at that number all the way to 205! What a mess... I have never had test anxiety before .. and boy did it hit me that day! So now I am just sitting and waiting .. and feelin sick all the while.. What do you ya'll do to destress from this stuff?

    have a positive attitude... don't think about it too much.. its normal to feel anxious when waiting for result.. i was like that too... =) try to relax and pray to God... he will listen to you if you ask him sincerely... just pray and hope for the best.. i'm sure you did fine.. 205 questions, you cant really base pass or fail on the questions you get... good luck!!! think positive...

    I'm sorry. The test is torture. People stress too much over the numbers.

    Good luck.

    Hello, I felt the same way when I took my LPN boaeds 14 years ago. My Father died suddenly 2 weeks before my boards, and I had an awful time of it. Almost didnt take my boards, sure glad I did.I am in school now for my RN. Good luck to you I hope you do great in your career...
