I am so excited to finally announce that I took my boards last Monday and passed!!! It is such a relief and an amazing feeling seeing as though I was already working as a GN in a step down icu setting!!!! My computer shut down at 75 after about 15 SATA and 5 other alter. format questions. I was a single mom starting off and after leaving a bad relationship with my childs father I finally followed through on my "i'm going back to school" statement I had made so many times over the last few years. I am the first person in my immediate family to complete college and the only RN in my entire family and I am proud of my self!!! Thank you all so much for all your support, advise and stories!!!! I'm ready to kick my career off!!!!
