So I have now accepted and grasped the reality that I am now a June 2007 Nursing Licensure Exam passer. I already have my name posted in the newspaper and in the tarpaulin (see photo on left side) that the school posted outside the gate of the Fleur-de-lis Auditorium. I feel happy seeing my name listed among the successful examinees. Buti na lang tama ang apelyido ko kahit ka-jirita lang dahil kulang ng Anne ang pangalan ko (#22). Anyway, enough of my kaartehan. Now people have been asking me, "So what are your plans?".
And I can only answer with a smile. A retarded smile. I don't know what to say.
Gaaah! What is happening to me? Before the results were released, I was full of plans. I have plans A-D. But when the results came, my plans became all blurry. Here are some of what I planned to do:
Plan A: Seek employment in the hospitals of my choice, which are PGH, USTH, and Manila Doctors Hospital. Na-TO ako sa Asian Hospital because they are underestimating some procedures...maniniwala ba kayong walang lap chole dun
Plan B: Review for CGFNS at PRS review center...O don't expect me to review at the whore house ha? *lol* I'm also working on other requirements as well. I even have an application form for NYU Medical Center but it is still left untouched until now.
Plan C: Take up a Masters Degree in Nursing, especially on the time that I was so majorly bummed out while waiting. Kaya lang I noticed that I was thinking of this because I was inggit with my friend Carissa because she has something productive to do while waiting for the board exams...but anyway, I WAS planning on it pa rin.
Plan D: Continue my ambisyosa mode to pursue medicine...ambisyosa talaga di ba? Wehe!
Ang dami kong gustong gawin..para tuloy akong my hyperactivity disorder.
But just now, since employment chorva is still uncertain, I finally decided to review for the CGFNS muna. Parasite mode pa rin ako dahil nakaasa pa rin ako kay mommy at daddy. Kahiya! Kasi naman ang tagal pa ng release ng license...yung hospital of choice ko required ang license mismo. Plus, according to the law, you should be 21 years old before you practice nursing. I'm still 20 years old pa lang naman. At in fairness isa pala akong law abiding citizen, considering na pasaway ako. Etchos.
Malabo na rin ang plan D dahil Johalia Jackson (uy, thanks to Chuvaness for the term) ang tutition sa Go USTe tapos pampanipis naman ng gray matter ang NMAT rating na required ng jUPeeCM. So ayun...ang master's saka na lang kapag may experience na para can-relate sa discussions.
Good luck talaga sa atin. Dati-rati luto, wishful thinking, at linis ng bahay ang inaatupag ko pero ngayon, paghahanap na ng totohanang purposeful activities. And it just dawned upon me, HOLY COW! Isa na talaga akong ganap na nurse...at tumatanda na ako. haha!
