I Passed!

June 13, 2008

Although I thought the test went well, I was still so nervous to check the results. A thousand scenarios had developed in mind around how I would react if I failed. I am very grateful that I don’t have to find out. I’m an RN!

If I hadn’t passed, I think I would have been overcome with stress. I might have had an aneurysm. Because I start on my unit next week, and first of all, how embarrassing to have to go back and tell my manager that she hired the nurse who couldn’t pass the board exam. Secondly, I have to move by the end of the month, which is in about two weeks, and that includes repainting my room. Third, I get married in what? Three and a half months??? I only have to put together practically the entire wedding in that amount of time. If I had to worry about studying for and passing the NCLEX in another 45 days…I don’t even want to think about it. But I don’t! I passed!

    Kat, you know I seem to worry about everything. When it comes to you taking on any task though, I never seem to worry. I have never seen you fail at anything that you take on. One of the million reasons I’m so lucky to have you. Although I was never worried, I’m so happy that you won’t have to stress about it ever again, my RN. Be proud. :)
