The results are in, and I passed my exit exam! Woot Woot! Here are my results!
I'm not sure that I can really even describe how happy this made me. I am well on my way to being a REGISTERED NURSE!!!! Crazy! I just have to wrap up the loose ends of this semester and then I will be preparing for my boards - the final step in my journey as a nursing student. Rumor has it that the exit exam is harder than the boards, so I am feeling pretty confident about my success.
Yesterday I prayed to be calm and focused during the exam and that is exactly how it was. I certainly was nervous, but nothing like I have been in the past with ATIs. I certainly felt God's presence while I sat in the exam room and answered the 160 questions. I'm pretty sure my dad was hanging out there as well. I cannot express my gratitude to God for His blessings and his guidance. I continue to be overwhelmed by His goodness.
Thursday is my public policy presentation on the integration of mental health care and primary health care, then I have a final exam on 12/16 and I can officially check "complete nursing school" off my list of things to do. It still seems so surreal.
