Half Way There!

Half way there! What I mean is, I'm officially an LPN now! I can still hardly believe it. I took the LPN boards on Friday the 19th and was CONVINCED I had failed. The test sucked. It was so hard, but again to my surprise I pulled it off and got the results yesterday that I passed! YAYYYYYYYY!!!! I've never felt so good about myself in my entire life. To reach a dream is an amazing feeling that I've never felt before. I've never had to work so hard in my life to reach a goal-ever! Not like I have to become a nurse. And I've finally made it. :) I'm in my third semester of the RN program, and it's going pretty good. We just got done with spring break and the weather was incredible. Then mom and I drove down to Milwaukee because that's where I had to take the LPN boards. Quite an interesting process they have to buzz you into the testing room. Fingerprinting, palm vein scanning, photographing, two body searches. EEKS! I felt like I was going to prison...or joining the FBI! You have five hours to take the test, but I finished mine in an hour and a half! That pretty much freaked me out right away, and the actual test itself was really difficult. I still can't believe I'm officially a nurse! :D I definitely owe a lot of my success to my parents who never gave up on me and always had faith in me. It makes me feel honored to have been able to succeed, for them and for myself! Now to find a job! I have to wait a month until my license comes in the mail, but that's alright. I'm not in a hurry anymore! :D We're half way done with this semester, and I dropped down to 3/4 time, so that set me back a semester, but it's all good. I'm officially a nurse!!!! :)

Great! Now you can go and support your parents *evil grin*

Seriously, I am glad you passed - and I knew you would!

And yes, it IS nice to see a dream realized!

I wish you further success in your career.
(I'd normally say "job", but they're like buses...wait long enough and another one always comes along...a CAREER is for a LIFETIME, God willing).

Enjoy the time certainly EARNED it!
