Yes, I'm a REAL Nurse Now!

This morning I was able to pull up my results for the NCLEX.  I'm proud to say that I PASSED!!!  When I told Cole that I passed my test, he said, "So, you're not a fake nurse anymore?"  lol  "No Cole, I'm the real deal now." 

I'm still job hunting for a RN job, but I'm sure that something will come along  that will work for me and my family.  I had a great prospect last week...I was in the final 2 for a job at our county health department.  I was definitely disappointed that I didn't get the job, but everything happens for a reason and I was honored to have made it to the final 2 out of 8.  For a new grad, I thought that was pretty good!

Now that I have some extra time, I'm thinking that I'll have to get to work on my scrap room so that it's easier for me to access all my scrappy goodies.

Until next time...happy scrappin'!

The nerves hit pretty bad yesterday.  I left my family yesterday afternoon and drove down to Greenville to spend the night in a hotel so that I could get some quiet time for studying, relax a little and not have to get up so early today to drive down for my test.  I found my hotel, got settled in, studied a bit and then took a nap.  When I got up, I went out and got some CFA for dinner and came back.  I studied on and off all evening, with crazy thoughts running wild through my head.  I went to bed and slept about 2 hours, only to get up with those crazy thoughts worrying me.  I searched the net for some relaxation tips, posted to the 3SB blog  and got a little more sleep.

I woke up feeling a bit more calm than last night and then I happened upon this: 
Isaiah 41:10  fear not, for I am with you;  be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
This excellent reminder could not have come at a more perfect time!  I'm feeling much better about today and am ready to have this test behind me so that I can add "RN" to my signature!
