“Take advantage of every opportunity”
I can still remember the phone call I had around June last year asking if I want to be part of Health Carousel. And then, I thought, “Why not? This could be the answer to my dream to work abroad”. So I grabbed the opportunity and took the Qualifying Exam for NCLEX Sponsorship last July 2017. Thankfully, I passed and started my online review provided by Health Carousel. I followed the study calendar given to me and submitted all the necessary documents for my NCLEX Application to Health Carousel and iNurse Processing.
After 6-7 months of studying, the big day came. Last Tuesday, February 13, 2018, I took my NCLEX. I don’t know what to feel a lot of mixed emotions. It was the longest four hours of my life and the exam was so draining. Four days had passed and Ma’am Liana called. Thank God! She delivered a very good news! I passed! After the call, I thought about all the sacrifices I made, effort and time invested in learning, studying and complying with all the requirements. It was all worth it.
I would like to thank the following: Ms. Connie B. Dela Cruz, Mr. Ademar S. Cutang, Sir Emmanuel Peter Labradores, iNurse Processing, Ms. Liana Samia, and the rest of the Health Carousel family for assisting and helping me process my NCLEX Application. Thank you to the aforementioned for aiding me to step closer to my American Dream. Special thanks to Ms. Liana Samia for guiding me continuously with the succeeding steps needed after passing NCLEX. To Ma’am Edel, Ma’am Cherry, Dimple, and the rest of my DR Family, my heartfelt thanks for your invaluable pieces of advice and encouragements. Likewise, thank you for my family and friends for your trust and wholehearted support especially to my mother and father who’s always been there for me.
Moreover, I will be forever grateful to the Lord, our God. Faith in Him makes everything possible. I will not be who I am right now if it wasn’t for Him since the beginning of my life. God has blessed me more than I deserve and I thank you for that, My Lord.
Lastly, to all aspiring nurses, just like me, all I can say, “If you think you can, then you can”. Always be positive and stay focused. Just believe in yourself. And most importantly, Have faith in God, because God has faith in you.
