So I just registered for the NCLEX. I have mixed emotions about it. I've been at this for forever it seems - so long now that being a nursing student has become a lifestyle all its own. On one hand, I am excited to begin a new chapter...On the other, I am dreading the readjustment phase - that period of time when you reintroduce yourself to average daily life. Registering today made this whole graduation from nursing school thing so much more real. It is no longer this far off, fuzzy goal that I hesitated to even have in my sights in the beginning. It's here, and it's staring me in the face.
Just wanted to share.
