here's my problem. i have been wanting to be a nurse for a really long time, it's always been something i felt i had a nack for. so, this may i graduated an adn nursing program as an rn. how awesome! but, since then, there has been a lot of bumps in my career path.... which feels more like tall mountains. i had two interviews right after graduating for jobs, and didn't get either position. (at the time i was horrified, but i felt it was good "practice" for upcoming interviews.) i lost a brother-in-law in a car crash on july 9th, and his funeral was the day i was supposed to take my boards! ack! thinking i was ready, i rescheduled them for that next week. i had 2 more interviews in that time span, and 1 of them were depended on if i passed my boards. i would have had a job! low and behold, i didn't pass my boards. :angryfire i am hoping to take them again the end of september, or early october. i had such hopes of having a job by now and being an actual working rn! i am just getting really down this summer with everything going on! i just want to know, i guess, if there are other people in my boat! or have at least been there. i know a lot of people don't pass their first time taking the test, but i guess i just need some encouragement. i hate having to pay all that money, again, to take the test. we are taking that test so that we can get a job and make the money... we don't have it yet!! i know things have to get better, it's just really hard to see all the people that were in class with you pass their boards and all have jobs, ya know?
