Since you are retired Navy, I’m wondering if your wife is also in a second career. The reason I ask is because my daughter went back to get a nursing degree at 46. She graduates this summer and will take her RN exams a few months later. So I know how hard your wife has had to work. When I retired from the AF,no way was I going back to school.

SALUTE

"Prayers up for her passing the boards and then for her career as an RN. It’s a hard life."

My sister-in-law and a good friend are RNs. They work extremely hard, but the work is very rewarding to them. It takes a special kind of person, IMO.

Prayers up, US Navy Vet.

Those who seek out the frail and needy so they can land softly are indeed blessed.

If your wife hasn’t taken a previous board type of exam here are some tips:

1. Read each question twice before answering. Eliminate the obvious wrong answers then give it your best guess.

2. If it asks a drug interaction question and Coumadin in a option, that is likely the answer. Coumadin interacts with everything.

3. If you become rattled, stop, close your eyes and rest for a moment. Take a deep breath, then reread the question.

4. When you get out of there you will :
1. want to have a stiff drink
2. want to have a good cry
3. want to throw-up
4. feel sure that you flunked it
5 all of the above

“EVERYONE” knows that that flunked their boards until they get their pass notification. I can’t count how many emails I got from my classmates telling me that they flunked their boards only to inform me a few days later that they passed.

I’ve a feeling she is very good at what she does, has studied almost too much and will do just fine.
But she will be in our prayers tonight at the dinner table.
Luck? She don’t need luck,
She’s good.

A few suggestions:
1) stop studying at a reasonable time the night before - eat a good meal, take a walk, and get a good night’s sleep.
2) Remember there are at least 15 questions in the first 75 that are trial questions that do not could toward your score. Anything that stumps you, assume this is one of them and just use logic to pick an answer.
3) Sit comportably is the desk to take the test. Place the computer mouse far away and take your hand OFF after each answer. Read the entire question, read every answer, make your decision - then move the mouse. This keeps you from making a hasty choice.
3) If you believe this is the career God has chosen for you, remind Him. “This was your idea....”

I passed the Texas board 4 years ago at the age of 47. It is a tough job but I love being about to make a difference in the life of others. It is my calling. And I get paid well to do it.
You are in my prayers.

Your wife has been on my mind all week. Care to update with a post on her exam results? A private post would be fine if you prefer.

Wonderful news!!!! She is on the path to a fulfilling career.

There will be days she will come home thrilled that she connected with a difficult patient and touched their lives in a meaningful way. Other days she will ask if Walmart is hiring greeters.

Be prepared to let her laugh, vent, or cry. Some shifts will promp all the above. Many blessings to you both.
