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
