Congrats! I beat you by 3 days! ;) It has been a week since graduation and pinning, and I still shoot up out of bed in the morning and think "I DID IT!". Now to relax for the next few weeks while I wait for permission to test and for my temp license to get approved...

Awesome. Congrats! I have one more semester. So have you already started applying for jobs? Any interviews? Do you know what area you want to work in? Just trying to use you as a sounding board as I figure out my next steps. :)

Well thank you so much for the thoughtful compliment! Study' date=' study, study!!! I actually found it more helpful to skim my notes and utilize NCLEX questions to help apply the information. Our school also used ATI standardized testing, so this was also a helpful resource. Get yourself a Saunders Comprehensive NCLEX Review Book. That will be your saving grace :)[/quote']

My school just started ATI testing as well. I start my BSN program in less than 2 weeks. I'm so nervous. I'm nervous about the ATI stuff, because I look at it as extra work on top of already hard and time consuming work!

Thank you everyone! Yes it does take some work, but that's what makes the pinning ceremony so special because you know how hard you worked to earn that pin! It is one of the best moments of your life.

I was also very fortunate enough to have job opportunity present itself during my internship. The nurse manager approached me during my 120 hour practicum on the Intermediate Coronary Unit and asked me if I would like a job there and she opted to hold the position contingent upon licensure. Of course I gladly accepted :) I was 1 of 7 students on the floor and the only one offered a job!

Good luck to everyone!!! Never give up!!!
