WELL, since a couple of my coworkers younger than I just passed it, I feel like I have to take it so here I go, trying to make time to review for the exam before I take my CCRN sometime this year.
Wish me luck.
I ordered the oh-so-recommended Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio review course. It cost me $158 for the 2011 DVD set review from her website. This is newer and a better deal than the one found in Amazon. I will let you know about the program when I get it.
Oh, by the way, I just passed my second course in nursing. Another 4.0. Goodbye Nursing Theory.
Oh and while I'm waiting for my Laura course, I am reading this Pathophysiology book. Funny, my engineer friend cannot even pronounce it. It really is a no-brainer. I think it is written for pre-med students without any medical background. It is a good review for nurses too. I recommend it.
I got to celebrate my birthday. "Happy Birthday to me . . . "
My doctor of genetic counselling said, I, with my oncologist and family physician can chill for now about the breast cancer issues in my family. My daughter can just be a teen. No need for testing . . . yet.
I am still on remission. Breast-cancer free--YIPPEE.
I can still wear my scrubs of different colors--solid, printed . . .
I seemed to have filled most bald spots on the top of my head. It took so long after chemo.
I don't have to wear the prescribed royal blue from some assigned vendors to show the world that I am registered nurse--not therapist, not doctor, not phlebotomist, not assistant . . . But sometime before December I will.
It is still busy in the ICU and I haven't been cancelled from work for months!
It is vegetable planting time! Spring is here.
My tomatoes I started indoors look like they will make it.
My sister only has stage 0 breast cancer, not 1, or 2, or 3 or 4. I am still thankful about that.
