Hello, everyone! Dorothy here from Ohio. I have been an RN for all of 5 days. I consider myself blessed to be called an RN! I had a tough time in nursing school trying to juggle a job, home, husband and three kids as well as school. I knew I wasn't going to quit though, and as of June 30th, it all paid off. I am scared to death but excited to finally be able to practice. To those who haven't taken NCLEX yet, good luck. To those still in nursing school, don't give up. It may get tough at times, but if you want it bad enough, stick with it. You will make it. It's a great feeling when you can finally call yourself an RN!
