Hello everyone!!!

I wanted to let everyone know that I passed (took my test Wed. and checked this morning). :lol2:

I want to say thank-you to each and every person that took the time to read my posts and kept me in your thoughts!!!:bow:The words of encouragement and the support I received from people who didn't even know me was what helped me get through the times where I felt I wouldn't and couldn't make it!!!! I cannot say "THANK-YOU" enough!!! Not one person said I couldn't do it. To make my story short, I started studying less than a month ago....after being away from the nursing world for a long time. I was frustrated and upset with myself with no where else to run!!! :no:. My family was awesome, but they didn't know how hard nursing was or hard the NCLEX would be (everyone in my family is a genius except me:banghead:, its okay I accepted that along time ago, and am very happy :chuckle). I felt ashamed telling people how afraid I was....who would understand when everyone thinks that nursing is just wiping and cleaning patients! I came on this site EVERYDAY, and read stories of people who made it and people who didn't make it! I took away something everytime I read a story....the people who made it, I took their advice to keep going because it is possible, and for people who didn't make it, I took their strength and courage to stand up and not give up!!! :up:(kudos to everyone)!!!

I studied very hard for 3 weeks straight, I did over 1800 questions, all of the qbank, some saunders and nclex3500, qtrainer 5 & 6, diagnostic test. I watched nearly all the videos and followed along with the kaplan book. I felt that for three weeks I only existed to stud and pray...and nothing else!!! Someone even told me that I would not make it, and just be prepared (this is about a week before the test and I felt so stressed that I started researching other online reviews, I saw a course that people were raving about, contacted them, explained to her my situation and she told me she was worried that I was to behind, questions are not enough and I lack in content, but I should purchase her program anyways, WHAT???? needless to say, I didn't purchase her review)!

My experience is....don't let anyone tell you that ANYTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!:lol2:BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!:redbeathe

Have the faith and courage to stand, to study (even when you think that it is too late or you don't have a chance) and know that you made it this far.......a TEST will NOT, NOT, NOT stop you from your career, future, and passion.......to become the best nurse possible :nurse::yeah:!! MOST OF ALL....the power of prayer is so strong....BELIEVE ME!!!

Please this is my "opinion".....I hope that no one will be offended!!!

Waiting for the results was horrific! My life was put on hold after my test ended, I was so worried sad and depressed....to make matters better, I am learning to play the guitar so I would sit in front of the computer pick up my guitar and strum away, it sounded horrible trust me....I wish I could cover my own ears :p!! It happens that the pick I bought for the guitar was what kept me strong...do you know why?:redbeathe

It said... "Pick Jesus" Romans 10:13, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." I would read that over and over....and I believed and I was saved!!!:bow:

It is okay if you chose not to believe so please do not be offended, I am just sharing my story and what I believe got me through this ordeal!!! Even if you don't believe in a higher power.....you MUST "BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, NEVER GIVE UP." :yeah::redbeathe:yeah: YOU CAN AND WILL BECOME A NURSE!!!!

THANK-YOU EVERYONE!!!! I am praying for all of us to take over the nursing world....and continue to make it better day by day for our patients and future nurses!!!!!!:nurse:

(Isn't it ironic that when I started my membership on this website I decided to name myself faith...and at that time I had no faith....not even in myself, :cry:, but now I have the STRONGEST FAITH.....in myself and the higher power :redbeathe:bow:)

Amen :icon_hug: Thank you for sharing your story. :) Inspiring :). Please remember me in ur prayer on Apriil 10 and before also. Sometimes I'm very :madface:,coz when I do questions I keep getting them wrong :crying2:. I think I am stressing myself out a lot. I am realizing that when i'M Stressed, I'm missing even stupid simple silliest mistakes. Just remember me and other march/april test takers in ur prayer hun. We definitely need it a lot. Thanks :bowingpur and YAY! So proud of you :yeah:. You dared to dream and u did it.

to the op congragulations on passing the nclex.

god and the power of prayer is awesome.

i graduate in may. as i was reading your post it took me back when i had applied for the nursing program, i had to retake a class so i did not get accepted in the first selection, but after i finish my class i went to turn in my grades to the office for adn program and the lady told me there were no more spots and i had to wait until the 2007 class. i went home i prayed to god and ask him if it is in his will he will make a way for me to attend this year. oh by the way this was on a friday. monday morning a week before classes began i got a phone call and the lady told me they had a spot available after all, and i can start this year instead of next year. anyway he opened the door for me and because of my faith and hard work i am graduating frrom the adn program in 42 days

i am sorry i know this is not my post but i had to sure how good god is.

congragulations again!!!!!!!!!!:nurse::nurse::nurse::nurse:

Thank you so so very much for this post. It is definately one of the most moving posts that I have read. It gave me chills how you described your story and quoting the bible verse at the end did me in. Thank you so so so very much for this. I am still in LPN school and it is not easy but there is not a doubt in my mind about me succeeding in the dream that I have set for myself. Good luck to you and all of the other nursing students on the site.
