Hello everyone! I have stalked this site for years during nursing school and have decided to come back to the forum. Last month I graduated from a local Practical Nursing program and will be taking the NCLEX tomorrow. I have a lot riding on me because I actually sent out 5 applications on Monday and had my first interview today, Wednesday. I absolutely could not believe it happened so fast. However, I do know one of the employees there as she highly recommended the facility to me, so I believe that helped to facilitate an interview. I already have my second interview with the Director of Nursing lined up with the same facility on Monday. And I had another facility that I applied to contact me for an interview as well.
I am trying not to feel pressured concerning what is about to occur tomorrow. I began taking my pre-reqs for the nursing program in '08 and was actually accepted and enrolled in the ASN program. Unfortunately, I let personal issues get in the way, and had to transfer to the LPN program. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason and I am still excited since I will soon be doing something that I love.
I honestly feel scared to death due to having interviews lined up. I realize how blessed and fortunate I am to be in that position, but wanting to pass NCLEX so bad is making me a bit frazzled. I have gained some wonderful insight from the forums here and will continue to remain optimistic.
Hopefully I am able to come back with good news. It's great to be back on the forums again
