Just took my NCLEX PN for a third and final time. Honestly this will be a positive response to people who design the test and students across the nation whom endure this mind racking exam. For those of you who have yet taken this examination you will pass and begin a career of hope, love, and caring for the patients that depend on you.
My story is like all others who dream for that day they accomplish a well earned life in the med field. Although I will not pursue a life in nursing I will continue the dream of helping others. Nurses across the land have endured years of hard work, sacrificed fun, and time away from loved ones to become an assistant to Gods healing miracles. They put patients before themselves to return dads, moms, daughters, sons, and friends back in the arms of love and missed families. Nurses are just that, Gods assistant who he entrust with power of healing and comfort.
So who truly decides which person will be or won't be a nurse? The organizations, Government, or the professors? How many people will you have to go through before, during and after to qualify as a nurse? Greed is not the answer nor the route which seems right. Placing a tag on what is or isn't a nurse should be left to the authoritative figures who trained you not a bureaucrat who determines what a nurse should be or shouldn't be. This system is broken not because I failed but by taking a system that worked and fixing it not to work for the patients or nurses but to regulate a field which provides true love and sacrifices to witness the reward of Gods hand.
I know in conclusion nursing is not in my future. I have been called for many different things in life an have the ability to know when and when not to continue or pursue a field in which I was not intended to do. I hold my self accountable for not passing the exam. It was not the man behind the desk who decided I was going to fail but my own neglect and struggles to become something I was not. In an effort to help others I say, know your nursing process, Maslow, concepts, and brief through everything you know about safety in the care of clients. I have had countless of days and sleepless nights since my graduation in order to pass this horrifying exam. To no avail I failed once, twice, and a third time with no clue to why I failed. Now I realize it was not Gods will. As a believer in Jesus my Lord an Savior, I fasted, prayed, sacrificed, and cried for days to let His will be done. It is finished and thank all the people on this blog for their encouragements and help in guiding me to material that was used with gratitude. Thank you and I pray for all those who are about to take this exam.
