Im not saying because I took a test 7 years later makes me eligible to be hired, what I'm saying is I remain persistent and dedicated to the goals I am trying to accomplish. Believe me, this is what I was called to do. An every nurse recruiter that I have spoken with, I've explained that too.
Youre not being cruel at all. I take constructive criticism very well. Right now the market is hard and competitive and I study what I need to do to get what I want. I'm currently enrolling myself in a refresher course, but I'm very particular where I get my education from. If I'm paying for it, I want the best!! I took a refresher course before when I was preparing for the boards and the course was garbage!! During clinicals, we learned absolutely nothing, I felt jipped and I reported it to the school. Hence my hesitancy...
But I totally understand what you are saying. What I said in the note was brief. I've been commended on my tenacity and that's what keeps me going. I could've given up a loooong time ago, but that's not my character. I'm determined, steadfast, unshakeable and unmovable and i WILL get and do the things my heart desires. I have strong beliefs, principles, morals and values and it's just a matter of time before the door opens and I walk thru it!!
Thanks for your post...it just motivates me even the more!!!
