Late Posting this but.....WOOHOO!!!

Specializes in Cardiac-Telemetry.

I took my NCLEX-RN October 29th. I was so nervous I wasn't able to sleep the night before. I got up at 6am so I could get there on time, and I got to the parking lot at 725am. Registration went smoothly, was fingerprinted, etc. Then when they called my number to go in, I suddenly had to go to the bathroom LOL. I kid you not, right when I go in to the computer I had to go. I decided it was nerves and that if I really had to, I'd let the administrator know I needed a break. Started the tutorial at 8am and breezed through that part. Clicked on the beginning of the test and the first question...easy. Next one...easy IMO. I kept going through the questions wondering when I was going to get one of those nightmare questions I'd heard about and actually got while studying. I got 2 SATA, and no math. I looked down and noticed I was on question 60 and my heart really started beating fast. I said to myself "just pay attention to the questions, not the how many you've gotten". I couldn't help but look down when I was on question 73, 74, then 75....I hit enter. The test ended. I was like "ok, I either did really...REALLY well or I bombed" I felt good, I felt giddy as heck. I was done...40 min after I started. I looked at the clock...it said 840a. It took me longer to drive to the test center than it took to take the darn thing. I worried at that moment, but still felt I did well. I am just one of those people who does not dwell on a test question of a long period of time, though I actually felt I had this time.

For some reason I couldn't go back to bed when I got home so I went online. Silly me checked the BON website for some reason. I had my results Friday October 31st, the deadline to renew my LPN license. I actually paid to see my unofficial results, and wish I had waiting until at least the mail passed because the official results came in the mail that day. I was so happy. Glad that at least this burden was lifted. I had in the last week felt like the most incompetent nurse around and this proved to me that I was at least smart enough to pass my boards. A test which is very difficult to study for since almost anything can and has been on it.

I just want to thank those on the September and October support lists, and everyone else here for the encouragement.

I can now call myself an RN :yeah::nurse:

Congratulations, Zooby!!!! You give encouragement to those headed for the NCLEX in the future!! I felt the same way about about LPN-NCLEX, just kept answering the questions, waiting for the hard ones, when the computer shut off!

I will praying for a decent test bank of questions around May of 2009. I thank you for your "bright side" of the story.

Good luck in your future endeavors!

I was hoping I'd get a decent bank of questions, I was just surpised to have the kind I did. Mostly delegation and priority and all were common sense based. I remember my NCLEX-PN being like that all those years ago, nothing too difficult.

Good luck to you on your exam, if I can do it anyone can :dncgbby:
