Hi Whitebunny, I understand ur state of mind as I too feeling the same.I shaded last 20 questions clicking at a glance which doesnot mean that if i have done those they were meant to be correct,because u know these questions demand attention to detail.so do not worry,just hope that whatever has been attempted is mostly correct.No option left just to wait for the results.I found the test bit tough and tricky and lengthy and pray that passing Bar should not be more than 60%.I have just joined this community as I didnnt knew abt it as I mn international applicant,just 2 months in Canada.

Ohhh the invigilators made sure we did the survey.. maybe that caused the line up for handing in the exam booklet & answer sheet.. aside from checking the ID again, they asked test takers to shade the survey before they left..

A very wise former professor once said that if there was only a minute left and still lots questions unanswered, pick a letter between B or C and just shade away.. I did that one time during a mock exam and shaded all C's in one straight line.. I got 9 correct answers out of 20.. not bad, ei?

whitebunny, my fingers are crossed.. I believe in the power of the mind.. we studied hard, we will pass! =) same goes to everyone who wrote the exam yesterday.. let's hope for the best.. now we wait.. and send out resumes, no time to waste..

i know, i thought about this for a second. I was going to shade all B or C for my last 16 questions but i have to say i have wrong judgements and i was focusing on all my previous questions and indwelling into it.....wrong judgement....screw me big time

They shouldn't have made you do the survey, it was a voluntary thing

Guys

Just a reminder regarding the confidential agreement you signed regarding not discussing any questions that was on the exam. Please do not post anything that was on the exam including any answers that you think you got right. People have been dealt with by the college when things have been discussed and discovered

To be honest, I'm not sure how I did. I looked up some of the stuff when I got to my car and got the laptop out- just for my own self assurance. There is definitely a BIG community health nurse focus, which ironically I'm not good at (even though the nursing school I went to focused heavily on that and advanced practice-EVERYONE-but me wanted to be an NP).

I've been a nurse 12 years, mostly in critical care and let me tell you- things don't change much in critical care (adult). It's the same old same old by the numbers type stuff.

That's why these questions were, in rescueNinja's words "trickier". Complex social situations and how to relate to them and address them. When I say critical thinking, it's sometimes hard to pick the "best" of say 3 pretty good answers. It's also hard to crash course on maternity, mental health, and peds if it's not the world you're used to. This is where having 3 kids and being present for all three births paid off for some of the questions! Anyhow...

I slept about 4 hours the night before (nerves!) in the hotel and didn't get enough strong coffee (damn hotel). My mind was all over the place during the exam: around 1115 I thought I had 15 minutes left and only had 2/3 done! Then about 10 minutes later I figured out my error-got myself together. Strange what a little stress and sleep deprivation can do.

When done, I had a half hour left, so I was able to go back and check some questionable answers and make sure I filled the boxes right!

I didn't do the survey-sorry invigilators

Testing is so different in the US, the NCLEX was in a little quiet room on a computer by myself. The CCRN was in a little room in a computer by myself.

Anyhow, I hope for the best for everyone!
