Got my temporary permit (license) yesterday. I can work on it for 3 months. If I don't pass the NCLEX before the 3 months are up, I will be able to continue working as a tech until I can pass the NCLEX. I'll probably be getting my ATT soon, so I can schedule the test (at least I hope it comes soon!!). My husband just got out of the hospital today and the nurse manager for the telemetry unit said to give her a call as soon as I feel like my husband is doing better. He is a cardiac pt. Has had 2 CABGs, 1 stenting, went to Cleveland Clinic--they said there was nothing else they could do to help his heart. We're just taking it one day at a time and trusting in the Lord to help us thru this. The dr. ordered his 02 off last night, trying to get his sats down below 88 so he can qualify for home 02 which medicare would pay for 80%, but it didn't get below 91%.
