i feel you. it's okay...everybody starts from scratch. no one can brag that they already walked on red carpet after they graduated from college. surely, it is a tough, rough road ahead. but we shall breeze through.
think, to become an effective nurse, we need to have the 3 important aspects in nursing---the most famous KSA. but id like to jumble and replace it with AKS! Attitude should come first, Knowledge should be second and followed by Skills.
Attitude can bring us to wherever we want to thread on. Attitude brings about motivation. Attitude pushes us to acquire the right knowledge and it comes so strong when we want to learn new skills and it keeps us going especially during rough times.
I am talking about having the right attitude.
Now, when it comes to your resume, there is something real good in your credentials. you already passed nclex!!! and that is real great. congratulations!
see, not everyone will be fortunate enough to pass it the first time. even if it's the second or the third try or fourth try, and one passes nclex--wow, thats an achievement!!! think, attitude is at great display when someone failed but tried again.
others might have 5 or 10 years experience on the floor, working outside U.S. as a nurse in their homeland but their experience doesnt warrant success in nclex. now, knowledge, right knowledge, comes in.
about skills, yes, I too, could fumble. but attitude keeps me strong and motivated. i know I shall learn it. there must be a way. well, this website shares a great deal of information of how we can improve our craft. members here, as i read, are most helpful. they are very supportive.
hey, i need to polish my knowledge now. will take my nclex soon. a prayer from you could help me a lot.
cheer up and thanks!
