Finally a Registered Nurse......

  1. It has been a bumpy ride but finally I graduated with my ASD. I recently took the NCLEX-RN and passed it. I was a nervous wreck when I received my ATT. I waited 3 weeks and said to myself, it's time to get it over with. (I remember a professor telling me that 50% of what you learned in class is lost within the first 4 months.) The computer stopped at 75. I felt confident going out of the exam. The following day I went on vacation to Miami. A couple of days into my vacation I just had to know whether I passed the test or not. My anxiety was building up!!!! I logged onto the computer and saw the beautiful word....... PASSED. "IT FELT INCREDIBLE" :hatparty: I made a pia colada and celebrated my triumph. I can't believe I'm an R.N. I am currently searching for a job. Sending my resumes out and hoping for the best.

    If you made it through nursing school you shouldn't have any problems with the NCLEX. Don't under estimate yourself. You've learned a lot. Trust me!!!!!!!

    Congratulations Ari Rn. I'm Happy For You. I Am Having Just That Problem Right Now. I Graduated May 1st. And I Still Have Not Taken The Test. I Originally Scheduled The Test For May 22, But I Got Cold Feet And Pushed It Back. Now, Everyone Is Telling Me I Should Just Go Ahead And Take It. I Don't Know What To Do Now. I Feel Like I'm Just Procrastinating. Can U Give Me Some Advice. Again, Congrats!!!!!
