New Grad to new RN..... finally!

  1. Well, I did it!
    I took the NCLEX on Tuesday and PASSED! I found out this morning while I was at work (12 hours! ) I wanted to go home and tell my family sooo bad!
    I had 75 questions and it took me a record breaking 2 hours and 51 minutes! I did not even take the break at the 2 hour point! I walked out thinking that it was hard and wandering how 4 years of school could possibly come down to 75 questions!

    THANK YOU, to all that have been so encouraging and supportive of me while in school. It meant a lot! You made a difference!

    I am both proud and humbled to finally achieve my dream and to join the profession of nursing.

    Best of luck to all who are still waiting to take the exam and thank you to all who paved the way and do an excellent job everyday in the lives of others.
