I am now a LPN!!!!

  1. I did it! I passed the LPN NCLEX!!! ! I'm official now!!!

    This is such an incredible blessing for me right now. I am in semester four of five in an ADN program. After semester three, we are eligible to take our LPN NCLEX. I couldn't take it right away due to money issues, but a wonderful nursing professor finally dragged it out of me why I hadn't taken it yet, and she found a way to pay for it for me!! (a help service in the college) I am so grateful to her for this!

    On top of nursing school I have been faced with several major things this semester. My parents were helping out with my school, paying my tuition and whatever else I couldn't afford on my tutoring salary. However, my Dad lost his job last January, and hasn't had one since. I haven't been making much at my tutoring job, and what I did make now had to cover everything. I couldn't affor my NCLEX, yet I desperately needed it to get a LPN job to pay for school. This was on top of moving, loosing my dog, strained relationships, and other issues this semester. So, my professor's care really made the difference for me!!

    I did find a job, actually two of them, that are waiting to hear from me that I passed the NCLEX. Now, I can call the one of my choice and tell them I did it!!

    I'm so happy right now I'm almost crying. After all this lack of sleep, tears, determination, and hard work, I finally did it! I can hopefully now orient to my new job next week and afford to finish RN school. I so want to graduate next year, I have made many sacrifices to get this far and I want to finish! I love nursing, and am told that I do well in my clinicals. I just want to make it to graduation.

    So, long-winded way of saying I DID IT!!!! Thank you all, I don't post much but I do read allot, and I appreciate the support on here. I often come and read just to remind myself that someday it will all be over. Thanks!
