The Results Are In...

I woke up this morning knowing that the results would be posted on the pearson vue website. It still said "the results aren't ready". So I sat with myself in my quiet sleepy house and had a talk with God and told him that whatever will happen will happen and that I'm leaving it in his hands now. I also knew that by the time I was finished with my prayer the results would be ready and sure enough it read.."the results are in" so I went to grab my debit card and made the slow, knee knocking trek back to my computer. I typed in all the information, crying like a baby the whole time, prepared for the word "fail" and clicked the next button with my eyes covered. When I opened them all I could read was the word... "PASS"! I jumped out of my seat, ran to my husband, woke him up crying that I had passed. What a feeling. I am still in shock. God is good!

I PASSED....I'm officially an RN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

okay, i know i don't know you, but whoooooo hoo! I am so dang happy for you. You had me so scared.... well you know, because all of us student nurses live through each other, right? I am really happy for you, oh dang I already said that. Anyhoo, what kind of nursing do you want to go into, Miss RN!!

I am so happy for you, Christy!!!!
That must feel so good.

I am in my 5th week of school now and am starting to calm down a little. I was in a daze for the last 4 weeks wondering what the heck I was doing there. I think I'm starting to get it together now. It's hard to juggle everything. My house is a mess!!
I have my 2nd test tomorrow so I better go study.

Congrats again!!

Hi, I have noticed your blogging on the allnurses forum. I am in the SAME boat as you but in Florida. I took my test Friday like you and got 251 questions and cried after. I kept checking the BON to see my license number and NEVER did =( After visiting the allnurses site, I noticed you took the test too on Friday and saw Sunday you got the results by pearson so I knew mine were in too! I passed as well with a lot of questions and almost 6 hours! I noticed you said your license number had not shown up on your BON by Sunday 9:30. I am in FL now and it is 10:50 and my number has not popped up either. So, don't worry, you are not alone. WE PASSED!!! lol I just wanted to let you know that I was touched by your story and feel your pain. I posted my long journey story on allnurses just now and hope it helps someone. If you need someone to talk to or what not feel free to email me at I will let you know when my license posts! I am going to be applying for jobs tomorrow in pediatrics=) I wish you luck and congrats!
