NCLEX-RN Thoughts. . .

Sat through this little fun event this afternoon in a room that smelled of feet and nervousness.  

Had some fun with the nice check-in staff – when advised I needed to read the exam instructions, I responded with “Read??? Read???? No one at school told me I needed to be able to read to take this test!!!!!”, checking to see if I had both index fingers (result of assessment – positive for bilateral index finger presence), and in general being a total dork.  Fortunately they just laughed at me, and didn’t kick me out of the testing center. For Satan’s minions, Pearson-Vue’s folks are really nice!

I then sat down at the spartan cubicle with my official NCSBN-approved foam earplugs (2, yellow), my dry-erase board and a pen that I’m sure was voted “least likely to become a self-injuring weapon” and got to work for the next 1:10.  For me, this of course includes healthy portions of sarcastic self-talk (excerpt follows):

“Really, NCLEX?  Another *SATA?”

“Awww. . .dang you, NCLEX!!”

“Another SATA??? WTH!!! Arrrggghhhh!!!”

“I’ve NEVER seen this condition before?  WTH!!!”

“Hey, where’s the math questions????  Waaaahhh!!!”

More SATA????”

“Crack baby!!”

(Anyway, you get the idea.)  

Glad that’s over. . .now back to my regularly scheduled summer, and more weighty projects, such as getting the cat to eat from his robo-dish so the dog won’t blow her diet and eat all his food.  First-world pet problems, that’s right!

(*SATA – select all that apply – everyone’s favorite!)
