The interminable wait for the November 2008 NLE results

Yes, I am one of the 80,000+ Nursing graduates who have taken the November 2008 Nursing Licensure, and who by this time, are probably bordering the point of torturous anxiety and paranoia.

But as to be expected, the results are still in tight wraps within the PRC/BON. Although considering the inflated number of board exam takers, plus the week long holidays last December, I think the lapsed time is pretty tolerable-- also taking into account how long it took them to check previous exams with much lesser examinees.

Some sites have posted that BON has started quarantine last February 8, and results are to be due in 10 days. If it it is to be believed, the results should be out by tomorrow. However, none of these sites have cited an official source, and the official BON site has not posted anything which corroborates the said information. So wait again it shall be.

As I have surfed these pages, I encountered a few (actually many) comments which by the looks of it, are probably from examinees who are on their wits end. Some wrote as if sending God a quick message, others tried incite rumors of irregularities, and the remainder bordered between funny and extremely worked up.

Here are some of the comments which I found interesting:

Blessed are those who wait patiently!

Well I hope that many of the examinees really do pass. And I think I should stop thinking about it for the time being. :P
