  1. I'm really upset now that I found out we have to wear a mask while we write the NCLEX. I overheat easily and believe this is going to negatively impact my performance. How is this fair?! If they're that worried they should just postpone the exam. I wonder if any other professions (law, medicine, accounting..) are requiring their candidates to wear a mask during their licensing exam. I doubt it.

    I can't believe this - wearing a mask during the test?

    Thank you. And to the others who have treated me respectfully in this thread. I did not expect this to turn into such a *** of a conversation. Nurses really do eat their young. I'm done here.

    Great advice. Thanks! A helpful suggestion is much more appreciated than a "are you in the right profession" criticism *eyeroll*

    Why can't they just space us further apart? Probably because they'd lose money doing so. No, I'm not sure I'm in the right profession. I understand what you are saying - but there are many different types of nursing jobs - some may/may not require a mask. Some people don't live in areas that are highly affected, and people deserve a fair chance to write a licensing exam without discomfort.

    You all raise good points. I understand wearing a mask is a necessary precaution in large public spaces, or when physical distancing is not possible, in some cities. It is difficult to comprehend doing this where I live, where the incidence is very low. They can also just ensure we are the appropriate distance apart from each other. Perhaps I am selfish, but I do believe when it comes to a licensing exam, that the conditions should be neutral - not working against the applicant.
