It was not simple. The questions were harder than I thought they would be.
It went too fast. About 35 minutes.
It didn't seem like enough questions - I last looked on #55.
Then it ended. Abruptly. It was done.
I had plenty of time to ponder as I drove the hour and a half home. Did I fail that miserably? I didn't think so, but it didn't feel like a slam-dunk either. By mile 50 I was convinced I'd failed and would have to pay, schedule another test, take another day off work, and drive another 150 mile round-trip to the testing center. I had told a few people it was my test day, they would be surprised if I tanked it. Mr. Medic knew, Taylor knew. Crap.
With the EMR class last year, it took a couple of days to post. How could I wait that long?
[And yes, I have heard the stories about "Back when I took my test we had to wait by the mailbox for weeks. Walked to it three times a day in 6 feet of snow, uphill, both ways..."]
It doesn't make the waiting any easier, folks.
So, fingers trembling, I logged in on the off chance it had posted.
Congratulations on passing the NREMT National EMS Certification cognitive examination
And there it is. I passed.
Still waiting for the pshychomotor exam results to make it through the bureaucracy, but for now I'm done testing.
Time to start studying protocols.
