I Passed My Cert!!


Yesterday was my last chance to pass a certification called "Transfers and Ambulation" - if I didn't pass it, I was out of the nursing program. As if there wasn't enough pressure on me, I had to pass this using the Dean of the Part-time program as my client!! I mean, FOR CRYIN OUT LOUD!! I was so nervous doing it, I almost puked. Which is NOT a good thing to do when you are trying to pass a clinical certification, especially on the Dean!!

Anyway, when we sat down after to talk, she told me I passed, and I cried!! She was surprised at my reaction - I was so unhappy before when I had failed this....and I was depressed at the thought that after all my hard work, it would boil down to me performing under tremendous pressure..

Like I said before, as if I wasn't under enough pressure yesterday, not only did I have to give it my all for this last certification, but then I had to take a Med Math Test after!! So, I sat down and took it. Was the first person to finish it....and later when they told me what I got - a 95 - I was just so grateful. I probably could have aced it, except for somewhat sloppy long division on the last problem..

Thank you all for supporting me. And Thank GOD for this forum for student nurses!!

stuend nurse from ma: CONGRATS to you and the milestone you just passed. You deserve a pat on the back...those tears of relief were a welcome catharsis, no doubt. Keep up the good work and that ever onward spirit!
