The day of my lifelong dream is almost here! I'll be sitting for my NCLEX-RN (state boards) on Tuesday morning, March 23, 2010, at 8 a.m. (You know I'll arrive much earlier!) They have to sign me in and do checks to make sure I'm who I say I am.
I've been reviewing regularly every day for the last month - but there's no absolutely, positively way to guarantee that I will pass. At least two of my classmates have failed already. As of Friday, March 19, seven out of thirty-five have made it to RN. Most of the rest have not taken the test yet!
People tell me they're sure I'll pass - and I should! I expect to!!!! I'm PLANNING on it!!!!
I have already gotten business cards that say Linda Meikle, RN. I have ordered 35 graduation cards and reprinted 50 of my graduation pictures. These will be mailed out to my family and friends after I pass the state boards.
I've gotten the results process fine-tuned too. If I take test on Tuesday, the Ohio Board of Nursing (OBON) should refresh and change my name from Linda Meikle, Registered Nurse - application PENDING, to Linda Meikle, RN on WEDNESDAY, March 24 at about 11 a.m. EST. If it still says PENDING at noon, I might think that I'll be retaking the test...
For those few who might even want to do the checking with me on Wednesday, here's the LINK where you type in ONLY my first and last name (meikle, linda). (Make sure the top drop-down box says Ohio Board of Nursing.) You will see three Linda Meikle's to select from. Choose the last one for my RN application.
On Wednesday, I have to be at Epic training at noon, and if the results are posted a little late, I might not have time to post my results everywhere before dashing off to 'work'.
You can follow the link, https://license.ohio.gov/lookup/default.asp?division=86 to become comfortable with it anytime. It's the site where all employers go to confirm certifications.
If I have the link wrong, I'll re-post. I can't check it before posting.
This is my last "BRING IT ON" shout-out!!!!!!
Take Care on the Journey,
Your Friend in Life,
