RN Free and Clear!

I promised to write on the blog after I got off work tonight updating everyone on the NCLEX-RN test results, but just as I logged off and left for work, the Ohio Board of Nursing (OBON) updated its website. My sister, who had been faithfully checking every few minutes for the last 28 hours sent me a text confirming the great news!

As my friend and former classmate, Edith, drove us to work at OSU where we are training to be consultants for the computer program, Epic, I called everybody on my iPhone to let them know the wait was over!!!!

From work, I was able to send a TITLE message from my blogsite, but couldn't do any typing in the body part of the posting. That's why a lot of you got just a title and no message. So much for technology. ha ha

I will be getting a letter in the mail with official confirmation and maybe a total score from the test. So far, I have a valid license number and an active license.

While I do have a nice contract job at OSU, I'm open to any good job opportunities. Please feel free to spread the word.

So many special messages popped up in my e-mail, Facebook, texting, phone calls, and voicemail. It's been even more fun and exciting to see all the goodwill and congratulations!

My son's Algebra class in South Carolina even sent congrats (and a hint for more cookies?). (Just kidding). Philip says he informed his class when I sent the text, and they were delighted and impressed that their teacher's mother just got her RN.

Billy almost reached though the telephone connection to give me a happy hug! His girlfriend says she is doing the happy dance by remote!!!

Philip's wife responded through Facebook, so the family's communication system was complete.

Hubby and I went out to Olive Garden for supper. He tells me over and over again how proud he is of me. We are a team!

So many are happy for me - and I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart.

Take Care on the Journey,
Your Friend in Life,
