    BodyWorlds Exhibit = 10/10 A+

    If you're going to see it see it soon. I believe it's only going to be out there until September (can't remember the exact day). My gf and I spent hours looking through all the exhibits. Simply amazing what this guy can do with plastination.

    lzy,

    My nursing instructor actually recommended that I use the RN study books for the PN exams. She seemed to think that it would better prepare me for the PN boards. So I think what you're studying is just fine. Just make sure you skip past the questions regarding blood products and IV pushes.

    As far as test anixety goes; Lexapro could take another 2-3 weeks before being effective. Why not see if your doctor can prescribe you a beta-blocker like inderal. I was prescribed this once for stage fright. It is more of a 'PRN anxiety type medication' other than it's primary role for the heart/HTN.

    Thanks everyone! It's very nice of you all to congratulate me with such entusiasm. I'm very proud to be a nurse. This is my first real career move. I messed around for awhile after highschool with dead-end jobs(I'm now 27). But 5 years ago I decided I wanted to be a nurse. I have since been working full time and going to school taking 1-2 classes per semester getting my Gen. Eds/Pre-reqs done. Three years ago I became a CNA and have worked in a long term care center since. I also became a Geriatric Care Specialist a year after becoming a CNA. Now that I have my LPN and am in my second year seeking my associates degree in Registered Nursing, I'll soon be looking forward to a BSN.

    The sky is the limit

    THE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS DOES NOT DETERMINE IF YOU PASSED OR FAILED. I HAD A FRIEND THAT GOT 86 QUESTIONS AND SHE PASSED. I TOOK MY EXAM AUG 5TH AN IT SHUT OFF AT 85 AND I PASSED. TRY NOT TO WORRY BECAUSE EVERYONE FEELS THIS WAY. WHAT TYPE OF QUESTIONS WERE YOU GETTING? I GOT MOSTLY PRIORITY, I GOT LIKE 8 CHECK ALL THE APPLY, 2 LABS,AND 2 DOSAGE CALCULATIONS. I THOUGHT I DIDNT PASS BECAUSE I KEPT ON GETTING CHECK ALL THAT APPLY. HAVE FAITH UNTIL YOU GET YOUR RESULTS. I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA AND I HAD TO WAIT A LITTLE OVER 3 WEEKS.
    I had a lot of priority questions. Some pharm, some labs, a couple calculation dosages. There really wasn't one type of question that stuck out above the rest of them so it was generally mixed.

    The reason I worry is because I hear if it goes beyond 85 questions it's saying you haven't necessarily gotten 50% of the questions right yet, so they're giving you more chances to meet that expectation. Then when it turned off at 86 questions I feel it's probably because I got the 86th question wrong and that was enough to figure I wasn't capable of answering 50% correctly.

    Now it feels like I'm just rambling.

    I live in Illinois, so I'll get the news good or bad in 2 days online. Cross your fingers because I need some luck STAT!

    Hi. My name is Joe, nice to meet you all.

    I'm new here and just took the PN boards today. It cut me off at 86 questions. I thought the minimum cut off was 85. This has got me worried!

    Anyway, nice to meet you all. Any advice on my worries would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi everyone, my name is Joe. I'm new to this site.

    I am in a deep funk right now because I just took the PN boards and I feel like I did completely awful. I know this is the general feeling most people get after taking the boards but I really didn't understand a lot of the questions asked.

    Here's my question. My test shut off after the 86th question. Which seems strange to me because I think the minimum for PN boards is 85. So if I were to get the minimum amount of questions wouldn't it have shut off at 85 and not 86?? Does anyone know if this is a good sign or a bad one? I've already read through a lot of threads and haven't seen anyone else who had 1 question above the minimum.

    I'm stressing bad and I feel like I just did horrible. Can anyone give me some information regarding this matter?

    Thanks in advance.

    -Joe
