I threw a BBQ to celebrate my successful completion of my licensing exam ( which makes me a registered nurse ), and since i couldn't bake my own cake since my over is vintage and broken, i just had to buy a cake, but i'd be darned if i wasn;t going to decorate it with a stethoscope. i really wanted to make the "R" letter wear a nurse cap, but i didn't get any red icing,

it's nothing special, and it didn't even taste great, but it's my first attempt at " decorating " a cake.

I remember getting that letter in the mail with "candidate passed". From one RN to another congratulations. Don't let any jerks get you down on the job. You will run into a few of them. You have a good career now and you will ALWAYS be employed no matter where you live.

Congrats!! Finding out that I passed the boards was one of the most momentous occasions of my life. It's an incredible accomplishment.
Your cake looks wonderful! I especially like the stethoscope!
Congratulations, RN! Smiley

Congrats on your determination (on both the exams and the cake)! When my SIL passed she said she had never felt so much relief.  Wink

Cute! Yay for passing your exams! Were they hard? I'm a CNA doing the long route to RN (CNA, pre-reqs, LVN, year of work, RN) and so knowing how hard the CNA test was it's really an accomplishment you did!

nclex exam is impossible to describe. it's a computer test that formulates your next question based on how you answered your last one. it assesses if you are capable of practicing adequately. after it determines if you are adequate or not, it just shuts off.

it's not that it was hard, it certainly wasn't as hard as the tests during nursing school, it was just tricky, or maybe because you can't possibly study for it and you know it kind of rules your life that you freak out about it.

i didn't think i passed, it kept asking me the same question over and over, just changing it ever so slightly.

the only reason i passed was because 1) my school was excruciatingly hard on us and we got a very good education 2) i did 3,000 practice questions before the exam using Kaplan questions, which are the closest to the actual nclex questions.

i wish you all the best in your journey. if i knew how hard it was going to be, i would have chickened out. it's best not to trully know what's ahead and just take it one step at a time.

now i;m just glad i can sew and knit 'till my heart's content because i don't have to study. thatis, until next september, then im back in school for my bachelor's

Okay that's just evil!
