    I was just wondering if there were any QA nurses out there that could give me an idea of what their jobs are like, such as responsibilities, etc. Thanks so much!

    Any colleges near Las Vegas with a waiting list?

    Hi SnowApple,Glad your interview went well. A lot of my classmates stayed at Broadstone and thought it was better than other apts in the area. They are in better shape than the others. The location is ideal. I wouldn't want to live too far from campus, especially since you have to be at school by 8am. I lived at home while in school, and while I was still in Henderson, it took me almost 30 minutes to get to class with the morning traffic. There are other apts along Green Valley Parkway, like Wildhorse. It is also about a mile from campus. However, from what I have heard, Broadstone is better! Glad you liked the school!

    I sent you a private message! :)
  5. No problem. I actually tested 2 days ago on Tuesday, not today. The message you are getting when you try the trick with "waiting for delivery" is very similar to the pop-up message that comes up after "delivery successful." It will tell you to contact your member board for further assistance. I found out through quick results today that I passed. Keep us posted!
  6. I also tested at 2pm, so there is hope that you will be able to do it tonight. Like you, I waited in front of the computer until I was forced to go out to dinner! lol. Once I got seated at the restaurant, I checked the pearson vue website from my cell phone and it said "delivery successful" and I was so mad because I didn't want to check it and possibly have a breakdown in public! I ended up waiting until I got home which was unbearable. Try to watch TV or do something to distract you for just a little while. Before you know it, you will be able to try it. Good luck!

    Trying to pass my NCLEX the second time :(

    If you have a question about a specific disease, you can PM me and I will do my best to break it down in a way that helped me understand it.
  8. You can try the trick when your status reads "delivery successful". It varies how long you have to wait. Some get home from the exam are able to check it right away. I had to wait about 3 hours. Good luck!

    Renal and endocrine were my weak areas as well. It was hard to keep the different s/s straight, but what helped me the most was understanding the pathophysiology of the disease. For example, Addison's is hyposecretion of glucocorticoids (cortisol) and mineralcorticoids (aldosterone) and by understanding what their roles are, the signs and symptoms are so much easier to recall because it makes sense and is not just memorization. The anatomy and physiology intro to each chapter of the Saunder's 4th edition book really helped me to understand the disease processes. Best of luck to you.

    Just finished nclex-RN

    Waiting for results can be agonizing, but just think positive and believe your hard work has paid off! I took my exam two days ago and am waiting for my quick results. Go out and do something fun and relaxing. Best of luck!
  11. For CA, did you try looking up your name on the CA BON website? Most of my friends in CA were able to see their name on the website within a few days of taking the test and weeks before they got their letter in the mail. Good luck!

    After 4 Attempts, I HAVE PASSED!

    Congratulations! Yay!
  14. I'm so sorry for what you are going through. I just got home from the exam and thought it was horrendous. I can't do the Pearson Vue trick yet. Hang in there and be with family to support you and cheer you up.
