Once again, thousands of BSN graduates took the Philippine Nursing Licensure Examinations which was held in numerous testing centers countrywide last June – July 2012. Many examinees would check their emails (for those who subscribe to the updates) every day for the much anticipated release of the June 2012 Nursing Board Exam Results, while many would browse over the websites that would post the NLE Results June 2012. The anxiety over the outcome of the results is one of the most torturous feelings ever!
As for personal experience, the anxiety affected me much that I had numerous acne over my face. Every night I would check on the blogs where the rumored release will be posted. The release of the examinations during our days was thought to be during the night or midnight to be precise. So I’d stay awake for many hours in anticipation of the results. It took over a month and a half before the release, so it took me a month and a half of anxiety as well.
During the period of waiting, probably because of the restlessness brought about my anxiety, I went on job searching. My reason was to earn for the meantime a living. I remembered applying for a cashier, and the manager told us that we are overqualified for such position.
Good thing we were not hired for that position because just weeks after that, the result was released. The feeling was gratifying and it was such a great relief. It wasn’t hard to prepare for the exams after all. Running after clinical instructors for their signatures, months of review, long lines in the PRC, all were paid off. Lucky are these examinees that were able to apply for the examinations online. During our time we have to be there at dawn because there were thousands of aspirants as well filing for the exams.
For all BSN graduates who took the examinations and are pretty anxious over the outcome of NLE results 2012, anxiety isn’t something we can battle off when it comes to this kind of life- changing event. Just continue to hope and pray that everything will turn out favorable to you. If it isn’t there are always chances and there are always better options.
