I took the NCLEX on Monday and found out today that I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm finally a Registered Nurse! The NCLEX was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I took a predictor test a couple months ago and got a 98% chance of passing the NCLEX on my first try. I have been studying and studying for the past few months and felt pretty confident walking into the testing center. 90 minutes and 75 questions later...I felt like I didn't know anything. There were some terms I had never even heard of...and tons of questions where you had to find the "most right" answer. ugh. Those are the worst! But it all worked out in the end! I can't even begin to describe how much stress has been lifted off my shoulders! When Curtis and I saw that I had an "active" license with an actual license number...and the words "pass" on the computer screen...we both got a little teary eyed! :) Lame, I know, but it's been a long journey from an Associates of Science at Dixie State College, a Bachelors in Public Health at BYU, and an Associates in Nursing and a RN license at UVU!! ...now onto the job search...oh...and 1 more year at UVU to get my Bachelors in Nursing as well haha.... :) If you know of any hospitals that are hiring...let me know!
