Today was D-day!!!

  1. Well, at 9am this morning, I sat down and took the hardest test I have ever taken in my life. I left the testing center on the third floor and by the time I hit the first floor, I was crying like a baby. A girlfriend of mine, kept saying it was so easy and she only spent one hour and ten minutes taking it before it shut off, and passed. I on the other hand think it was torture and spent one hour and fourty five minutes answering questions. I thought it was way harder then I had even expected. The testing center where we tested doesn't show you what question you are on so it is impossible to know how many questions for sure I answered. All I know is after the first couple of questions, it got harder and harder. I keep telling myself that it is okay, I did score a 93% on my NLN, but to me that doesn't mean a whole lot. I am going to try and keep myself busy for the weekend. How long did it take for you to find out if you passed? Anyway, wish me luck. I am going to need it.

    It took ME three months to find out if I passed or not. THAT was the curse of paper boards.

    Take your mind off of it. I'm sure you did fine.

    Hello,

    Now that the test is over pour yourself a tall cold drink and relax. As you know the stress is bad on your system. Think positive, that 93 on the NLN is fantastic. Don't rate your time or question # with your friend. Maybe she had an easier test. Since you don't know how many Q's you did have maybe it was less. I took the NCLEX on thursday and had to re-read the questions 3 times to get the answer and it took almost 4 hours. I think I passed and I did well on the NLN also.

    Good luck

    I understand your worry and fear:angryfire , but at this point do not drive yourself crazy. I took my boards on my birthday 9 years ago, and it shut off too soon into the exam(so I thought), but my girlfriend lasted a very longtime and we both passed. I think it took 2 weeks to find out, but does the state you are living in now post the results via phone(specific to you of course)? All you can do now is GO FOWARD.... :spin: Give yourself credit for all the great things you have accomplished and all the great gifts you have to offer other in the future. Afterall, being a nurse is more than any text book could teach, it comes from the heart and deep in the soul. Good Luck[ :groupwelcome: and Welcome!!

    Okay, so here is my plan. I sell Avon, so I am going to drowned myself in that and in housework this weekend. I also have a job interview on Monday at the local nursing home, so I can focus on that. Plus, my RN courses start this week. So I am just going to dive into all of this and hopefully it will keep my mind of the whole thing (right! but a woman can dream can't she). I have already started working on my game plan for if I don't pass. I am not the type to normally let situations like this get the best of me, so why start now.

    Put that game plan for not passing away.

    You passed, silly. See, I saved you having to pay to see the results.
