Wait, a sec. So you've graduated from nursing school
with a BSN, and have been working as a hospital CNA for around two years! Wow! I give you credit for doing that kind of work for that duration - especially if you have your RN license and doing CNA or tech work for that long. Did you try to apply for new graduate programs here in Hawaii?
I am set to take my NCLEX-RN soon next month. Oooh, I'm so nervous to be honest!
Right now, I am studying, and working as a full-time CNA at a care home, as well as being an on-call CNA for a nursing agency. I want to hurry on and get my RN license, but the dreaded NCLEX is my obstacle for now.
Then there will be the dread of applying for new RN graduate programs here in Hawaii. I would hate to leave the islands to find a job.
