Hi to all! First of all, I would not have written this if I am so sure of myself!
I just graduated RN this May 2011 with an ADN program in a nice well known school in our area. I did not take the nclex right away because of personal issues, mainly because I want to hang out with my infant and prepare his 1 year birthday in August. I felt like I owe him a lot of time for not being there with him while in nursing school. Anyway, 2 weeks ago, I got a job interview, went to the interview, the manager said she would love to hire me, told her I am awaiting to take the nclex RN. Well I took it last week and failed
I know I failed because my mind was not clear at that time. My husband and I just argued the whole night before the test and the D word came up. Of course it was 3 am and I couldn't re schedule the exam. I failed. And was so depressed. Still am, but the hubby was so sorry too and said he will pay for the next test.
Anyway, today the recruiter sent me the new employee packet and 8+ forms to fill up. In the letter she said I was "Selected for a hire". I did the background check online and I am sure I don't have any criminal history maybe just a parking ticket but just that. I am worried about my license though. In the letter she said once I am cleared in the background check, she will call me and give me an offer then give me a written offer if I accepted. Next week is the orientation. I am really nervous. I do not know what to do. I am planning on discussing with them my NCLEX failure, but one of my friends told me to just say I need to retake it in December.
My question is, will the hospital consider this? Maybe they can hire me as a tech for now which I do not mind. I am just really anxious right now. I really wish I get that call. When I saw the nursing manager whom I will work with, I really felt the connection was there.. but if this is not what God wants for me, then I need to let it go. Also, I am planning on taking a review class. Maybe Kaplan or Hurst or Martin? Thankfully my husband will pay for it! very depressed right now.. but still with a tiny bit of hope.
