“I passed NCLEX on my first take.” – Nurse Clarisse Ann

I passed NCLEX on my first take!


 

The Beginning of My NCLEX Journey

 

I joined HCPI last 2018, and after taking the mock test, I started answering the modules while filing for the documents needed for my NCLEX application. My NCLEX journey was a roller coaster ride. In February 2020, I have received my  ATT and I was scheduled for the April 2020 examination. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, my NCLEX was unscheduled. Come July 2021, slots were open once again and I was scheduled to take the exam in August 2020. In mid-July 2020, I was unscheduled again because of the MECQ situation.  After the MECQ was lifted, I got another scheduled for the December examination. Two weeks before my exam date, I got unscheduled again because the testing center is limiting the number of examinees to enter the facility. At that time, I just surrendered everything to God. I let go and let Him comfort me until the time is right for me.

On December 15, I was advised by IPASS that schedules were once again open. I got scheduled on the earliest slot available. I prayed hard that I may pass the exam at one take even when given only days to prepare. Aside from HESI, I also availed Uworld and Lippincott applications for my review. I did answer questions even when I am at work, during my break period. Even when working on a night shift, I answer questions instead of sitting and resting when I have some free time. My NCLEX timeline was full of challenges, but I am glad that IPASS did assist me well enough that I always feel at ease even when I am yet to be scheduled. I am grateful that they were hands-on and I felt how they wished me well in my examination. Add to that, I constantly update my HC advisor every schedule and unscheduled exam slot. After I took the exam on January 3rd, I availed myself of the quick results and learned the good news that I passed on my first take.

 

With prayers and courage, be confident that even the unexpected cannot stop you from achieving your goal, it may not be in the time frame you want, but in God’s perfect time.

“Don’t stop believing in yourself.” – Nurse Justine Marie

Dreams, dreams……. We all have dreams, and one of mine was to become a USRN, which was soon brought to life when I joined Health Carousel last June 2019 with IPass.


The Beginning of My NCLEX Journey

I had difficulty reviewing because I was working full-time at the ICU and you know how exhausting it could be. But thanks to my adviser Manyles who constantly follows me up somehow, I was able to catch up with my study calendar. Then this pandemic aka Covid 19 came and I thought that maybe it would take long before I could take my NCLEX exam and at some point, I stopped reviewing and just focused on my work.

But last October 2020 I finally received my ATT and the exam date that I chose was February 22, 2021. I was nervous because I stopped reviewing and seemed to forget the topics so I decided to leave my work last December 2020 to focus on my review but I could not focus because I had to help with our business. It was only last January 2021 when I realized I had only more than a month to study and that was the time I panicked up to the point that I was no longer sleeping just to finish a certain topic. and started to breakdown. But I reminded myself about my dream of becoming a USRN someday, I prayed to God to guide me on this journey of mine, and once again I was motivated.

I had to secure travel documents first before going to manila because I am from Iloilo. Thank God I didn’t need to be quarantined when I arrived in Manila.

Test day came, I was feeling all the emotions altogether but was able to compose myself when I started taking my exam. I finished my exam within an hour and was shocked when I got out of the room and realized that I was too fast and then” What ifs started invading my thought”. I looked for the comfort room, prayed, and started bursting into tears.

It was last February 26, 2021, when I learned that I passed my exam. And I was so relieved.

 

A Message To My Fellow Nurses

My message to aspiring USRNs out there is that don’t stop believing in themselves. And with hard work, perseverance, and faith you will be victorious.

“It’s worth the wait!” – Nurse Veronica

I have been an ASPIRE candidate since March 2018 and NCLEX has been a two-year dream of mine. I have always wondered if this was for me because it took months of processing requirements to a whole year of being “canceled” due to the overwhelming pandemic, leaving most of us stricken and locked down.


Pursuing My NCLEX

What I thought was a crisis turned out as a gift. I shifted my perception of this adversity turned the opportunity to have more time to prepare and study. There is beauty in the waiting. I trusted the process although my doubts kept knocking to dishearten me. In the waiting, I have utilized my review materials from HESI, Saunders, La Charity, and a bunch of practice questions. I did what I can, even if it means that the predictive scores tell me that I am cut off and that it is not enough. I had a fair number of fears, but I also trusted that God knew what he was doing.

In the latter part of 2020, I was notified that I was finally eligible to take the test and that I am set to have the exam on the 7th of January. This was also very fascinating because the number seven was God’s day of completion. On the day of the exam, I have finished in 300 minutes what I had waited for almost three years. Now I can attest to saying, “it is worth the wait”. It may seem long, but the journey kept me hopeful.

I would like to thank the Health Carousel family for being an instrument of God so I could take it. Thank you to the people who prayed for me, my family, and friends who earnestly believed in me in silence. I am overjoyed with this gift. 2021 started victorious for me, and I know it will sail greater heights beyond imagine for all those who believe. It may not happen according to your timeline, but by the good, perfect and pleasing ways of God’s time.

“Guard my life and rescue me, do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because MY HOPE, LORD, IS IN YOU.” – Psalms 25:20-21NIV
