I PASSED and am employed!!! Wahoo! Hello paycheck! Well after weeks of spending my days studying I am relieved to say that I passed the exam and as of Wednesday I will have an official license! I took the test on Thursday and had to wait til Saturday afternoon for the results. I was a nervous wreck for 48 hours. I was relieved to receive a phone call on Friday from Mercy hospital. I had applied to a RN position in the C/T SICU or Cardiothoracic and Surgical ICU. This is a position that I have been hoping for and knew there were going to be limited opportunities for new grads to be placed into them so I have been trying my hardest. I was offered and excepted the position and I start on October 3. I cannot wait!! Also, I did receive my diploma in the mail so I guess it is truly official from the U of A as well.
Now all I need is a frame because Bryan says that my diploma cannot sit in a folder. I guess it is time to go shopping! Thank you to everyone for all of your support and patience during the school time and study sessions. I greatly appreciate it and while I hope to love my job I hope to never see any of you in my unit! (unless you come visit me!)
