A Good Week

  1. I recently had a great week. It started with me taking my boards. I got 265 questions and left feeling I failed. However, I used the PVT and got the good pop-up and that settled me down a bit. The next day I interviewed at my ideal job at an outpatient surgical center. The interview lasted about 2 hours and was able to interview with the doctors I would be working with. They confirmed my desire to work there and I left feeling pretty good, just worrying whether or not I had passed my boards.

    When I got home I checked the BON website and my name was active! A couple of days later I got the job offer. Within an hour of accepting the position a couple of the doctors had called me to welcome me to the team and tell me how excited they were for me (Seriously, how often does that happen!).

    I now get to work an amazing schedule (4 days, no nights, no call, no weekends), in a fast paced environment, with an amazing group of people.

    After months of anxiety about not finding a job, doubting myself, questioning my decision to go back for nursing, I can honestly say it was all worth it to be where I am at now.

    So, take hope. It can all turn around in the blink of an eye. Or in my case, over the course of a week. Good luck to all of you as you pursue your dream.

    Pray, persevere, and be patient.
