It has been a busy few weeks.
I had my last final on June 12.
I graduated on June 17. Nursing schools have pinning ceremonies.
My Mom, Grandma, Aunt Patty, Aunt Elizabeth, and her 3 kids Cady, Maddie, and Michael all came to see it.
So did 2 friends, Kathryn and Tamara. I really appreciated all the support and love.
After the ceremony, we went to dinner at Everett Street Bistro. If you haven't been, you should go. So good and my outfit matched the decor. My Uncle Mike was very distraught that my school didn't have nurse's caps so my mom made some and each family decorated one for me. When I asked my Aunt Patty if I looked dumb, she just laughed. I meant dumber than I should with handmade decorated caps on my head.
On Thursday the 22nd, I took the NCLEX, the national boards for nurses.
It takes a couple days to get the results so I threw a party on Friday night to celebrate the graduation and distract me from waiting for the NCLEX results.
Tamara made me this super-cute cake!
I got to bed at 2am, but I woke up at 7am and couldn't go back to sleep, wondering if my score was in. So I got up and checked. And it was. It took me 3 tries to get all my info and credit card number entered correctly to get my score, I was nervous and sleepy. But I finally was able to get my results.
It's official and legal, I'm a nurse!
