Hello, blog family-
Just another quick update for you regarding my licensing exam. Unfortunately, things aren't looking very good. Here's how it has worked for my friends thus far: One took his exam on Tuesday, and by Thursday morning they checked the Texas Board of Nursing (TX BON) and had been issued an RN license number. Others took their exam on Wednesday and had their results by Friday. I took my exam on Wednesday and as of this evening do not yet have a license number posted on TX BON. There is another way to get results. I could log on to the testing center website and pay a fee to get my "unofficial results."
I did call the testing center who recommended that I check back on Monday for my results. So, anxious as I am to know, I will wait out the weekend and try again on Monday. If nothing is posted on TX BON, then I will pay the fee to learn officially that I did not pass and go from there.
I'm hanging on to a thread of hope that there was a type-o in my name or some other "technical" error that has prevented TX BON from assigning me a license; however, that thread is very thin and fragile as my gut instinct is telling me to expect the best and prepare for the worst.
All is not lost even if I failed the test because I was raised with the saying, "if at first you don't succeed, try and try again." The only problem is a second try can't take place for 45 more days (of agony and studying) and will cost me another $200 (that I don't really have)! Oh well, c'est la vie. I'll just see what Monday brings. I appreciate all of your prayers and support. Until next time...
