Just took boards yesterday!!!


As my computer cut off at 75 questions...I was like THAT'S IT!!! I studyied from 4 different sources and had a review coarse. Non of the questions were anything like I studied. I felt like I could have rolled out of bed and took that test wthout studying. :uhoh21:Nothing prepared me for the type of questions I had. It was prority and alot of newer medications. Kaplan can't prepare you for them type of questions. They didn't even reflect anything from the hospital. I just pray I passed, because I don't even want to think about restudying and getting the same kind of test.

Just pray because GOD hears your prayers and knows your heart. I thought for sure I failed and just found out 30 min ago I am a registered nurse! I had 86 questions, and was nervous!

You will make it! Just believe and pray.

my test sounded exactly like yours. tons of meds that i'd never heard of before, lots of priority questions...cut off at 75, was positive (i mean positive) that i had failed. i even started to look up things about re registering and how long i had to wait to take it again. found out today i passed. the harder the questions, the better. if you were sitting there like "what the...????" then that's a good sign, even though it doesn't feel very good. the test is designed to make you think you did your worst. try to relax, i know waiting is the hardest. let us know how it turns out! good luck!
