OMG! I Passed! I Am Now An RN!!!!

rn lic

Holy Moly!!!

I seriously do not even know where to begin on how to explain how I feel right now.

I am beyond relieved, but stressed, exhausted, and overwhelmed!

Today has been a whirlwind of emotions that have gone from fear to excitement to exhaustion.

The last 5 years have been leading up to today and now that it is here, I am a bit overwhelmed.

I have spent many days and nights studying at the kitchen table while my friends and family were going about their lives as my life was put on hold the best I could due to nursing school.

Going back to school at the age of 37 with ZERO college credits and starting night school while working full time during the day was not something that I ever thought I would be able to do.

However, I was determined to do it and succeed so that I could better myself and help others.

Little did I know just how difficult nursing school would be and how it would turn into a full time job while trying to juggle family life.

The 3 years leading up to the nursing program while doing my pre req’s was not a walk in the park, but they were cake walk compared to starting the nursing program at 40!

Even though there were many of days when I wanted to throw in the towel when things got tough during the last 9 months of school, I am so glad that I stuck it out and completed the program!

I graduated  June 16, 2015, I waited 6 weeks before I was able to schedule my state board exam and then another 4 weeks before taking my exam.

During the 6 weeks that I was waiting for the authorization to test, many of my classmates were scheduling their exams and passing NCLEX-RN!

I started to get discouraged as I waited, but I took the time to unwind a little bit after 5 years of school and I finally got my authorization to test on July 23rd.

Once I scheduled my exam, I started to study everyday for the exam and I completely went off of all social media the last 2 weeks in order to be able to focus on the exam and not get wrapped up in things that I did not have time for.

BTW- If you are reading this blog post from a Facebook or Twitter link, I am still taking a break for a couple of more weeks from social media so that I can continue to de-stress and go on a very much needed vacation. <3

I took my exam the morning of August 20th and I have been freaking out thinking that I did not pass the exam.

However, I found out today that I am now a Licensed Registered Nurse in the State of California! :)

I do not think that there is anything that can truly prepare one for the NCLEX-RN exam!

I did every single Kaplan qbank question, practice exam, and trainer test to study with, some of them multiple times until I got them correct and I still did not feel that I had passed when I left the testing center.

I did do the Pearson View Trick when I was done with the exam  in the parking lot of the testing center and I got the “Good Popup”, however, I did not feel that it was 100% that I had passed!

Pearson View Trick RN

There is something so mental that happens to you when you do this exam and you have to wait for your results, but I cannot explain it to be able to put it into words!

Only that it is BRUTAL! :'(

On the way home from my exam, I started to think of a backup plan for my career since I knew that I could never (would not) take that exam again!

Not only did I not want to pay the crazy fees to retake the exam, but I never wanted to put myself and my family through that stress again!

And now the REAL FUN of looking for a position as a New Grad begins! <3

If you have any questions about studying for NCLEX-RN or how to do the Pearson View Trick, send me an email and I will be happy to help!

Peace, Love, & Hugs,

May Purification

Purification is an Amazing essential oil and we use it all of the time! Living in the country, we are very used to getting a big whiff of Skunk in the middle of the night during the spring and summer when we are using our whole house fan. However, if and when the smell of skunk enters the house, we are able to get rid of it VERY QUICKLY with a few drops of Purification in the diffusers around the house! I will never forget having to leave the house one night due to the smell before we were using essential oils, but now that we have purification eo, we are able to stay home! :)

How To Order Young Living Essential Oils

IMG_2278

In February 2013, I was introduced to essential oils. Little did I know what I was in for. Essential oils, and their use as part of a healthy lifestyle, fast became something I am passionate about.

I have integrated the use of Young Living Essential Oils into mine and my family’s every day life and we have experienced numerous surprising health benefits. Most notably, the relief from, seasonal allergies, digestive discomforts, everyday aches and pains, stress, anxiety and depressive moods.
I hope you will consider joining me on this wellness journey!

Let’s Get Started!

You can order Young Living Essential Oils in one of two ways: as a Member or Retail Customer. Retail customers pay FULL retail price. I do not recommend enrolling as a retail customer.
Members get a 24% discount off retail price on every Young Living product.

In addition to the discounted pricing, as a member, you have the option (there is NO requirement or obligation to buy or sell) of sharing the oils with your friends and family and earning a paycheck. You will also have access to our private Facebook Group and personal essential oil education from our team.
To begin as a Member you start by purchasing a starter kit.

I recommend the Premium Starter Kit, as this is the best way to get  started on your essential oil journey. The “Premium Starter Kit with Aroma/Bamboo Diffuser” is my recommendation. It is by far the best value! This kit retails for over $300, but as a Wholesale Member, you get a 50% discount.

New PSK Kit
The Premium Starter Kit Includes

Ten 5 mL bottles of essential oils including: Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Melaleuca, Peppermint, Joy, PanAway, Purification, Stress Away and Thieves)
A Home Diffuser or An Aroma/Bamboo Diffuser
5 mL bottle of Citrus Fresh
Aroma Glide roller fitment (to turn any oil into a roll on)
Two sample packets each of Lavender, Lemon, Peace & Calming, Peppermint and Thieves (to share with friends and family)
Two NingXia Red 2-oz. samples (this is a great antioxidant supplement for general wellness & energy)
Signing Up As A Young Living Wholesale Member

1. Click over to my sign-up page.
2. Select your country and language.
3. Sign-up as a Wholesale Member.
4. Fill out your name, billing address, shipping address, and contact info. (The reason you are asked to list your social security number is for tax purposes. If you earn over $600/year sharing Young Living Essential Oils with friends and family, you will receive a 1099 in the mail, as it is required by Federal law. Young Living will never share this info with anyone.)
5. Create your password and pin. Write this down, as you will use this, when placing future orders.
6. Select your enrollment order. This is where you can specify which Premium Starter Kit you would like. You must sign up with a kit to become a Wholesale Member. To maintain your 24% discount going forward, you only need to spend $50 each subsequent year. That’s it!
7. Set up your “optional” Essential Rewards Program. Now don’t be confused by this next step. Buying one of the Essential Reward kits is not a requirement to sign up as a Wholesale Member! This is a rewards program you can opt into, to start earning points to redeem for FREE Young Living products. If you are looking for a recommendation, I love the NingXia Red Essential Rewards Kit. You do have the option of skipping this step by selecting “No, thank you.”
8. Confirm your order. People frequently miss this step and end up not fully checking out.

As a special Thank you, I will send you a 15ml bottle of Orange Essential Oil  or a 5ml bottle of Valor Essential Oil  (depending on your choice and availability) And I will also send you a copy of The Chemical Free Home 2 Book! (Please note, Thank You gifts are only valid under sponsor# 1412157)
