I was graduated April 10, 2011 so almost 2 months lang ang preparation ko for the July 2011 Phil. Nurse Licensure Examination May 2-June 29, 2011 Shieild Q.ave Branch AM Class 7:30- 1:30pm, Mon to Sun, eto yung sched ng review class ko nun. Pamatay ba??? Pero di ko naman ramdam. Kasi I’m having fun with my Shield Family.
Well, actually May 5&6 start ng review class pero nilaan yung 2 days na yun for Diagnostic Exam 300 Items on the first day and 200 items on the 2nd day. Nagkaroon pa ko ng free time (mag k-drama marathon) kasi we already taken the Dx exam nung asa morayta pa lang kami. PAK! 500 items for one day kaya ang result pak na pak din!!! Haahaa :D epistaxis much yung exam.
May 7 start na ng lecture first topic my favourite “Fundamentals of Nursing” at ang bumungad sa amin ang alluring, stunning beauty and dyosa ng shield review center the one and only Sir Tony. Ang SEVERE (GRABEH!) Kakaaliw niyang magturo lalo ko naapreciate yung funda dahil sa kanya. May 8 con’t ng lecture niya…then May 9, 10,11 rationalization ng Dx exam. AYUS!!! Coz may time na ko magfile sa PRC. May 10 nagcut kami ng class with my beloved Steatorrhea/ahjumma (Carol T.)
The journey of being an RN happened that day as in JOURNEY talaga. Andaming madlang pips kasi lastweek na ng filling, Tuesday ako nagfile and Friday is the due date. It was totally chaotic!!! Ang haba ng pila, ang tagal na paghihintay at ang matataray na PRC Checker very exhausted but worth it day. Then after I got my NOA I was looking at it and said to myself “This is it! This is really is it, MAGBOBOARD EXAM NA NGA TALAGA AKO.”
First palpitation na naramdaman ko for the NLE. Nung nakalabas na kami ng PRC I told Steatorrhea na “BABALIK TAYO DITO FOR REGISTRATION NA NG LICENSE” Heehee :D That’s the spirit!!!
Hoookay, wala ng dahilan para di pumasok sa review. I admit medyo pasaway ako nung first 3 weeks ng review days ko. I am tardy talaga… I remember one of our RA texted me that I’ve incurred 3 lates for week 3 ng review program and they asked me if I liked to transfer in PM shift, first warning yun and nakamonitor na ko…Hmmmm, medyo di pa din ako natinag nun, nakareceive ulet ako ng text, pagnalate ulet ako i-inform na yung parents ko and matic na PM shift na ko. Haist!!! Ganun ka-strict yung Shield. Natauhan din ako nung one time sinabon kami ni Sir Jobee (Jay-R Sta. Ana) kasi He noticed na mostly sa aming mga takers ay hindi nag seseryoso yung tipong petiks lang. He said na wish kayo ng wish na pumasa kayo pero di niyo naman ginawa yung part niyo!!! Magsacrifice muna kayo guys!!! Pakita niyo that you deserve that title. Wasak!! TARGET AIM!!! Tinamaan ako sa sinabe ni Sir kasi panay ang laboy namen sa mall that time tas pag-uwi kain, tulog and magwatch ng Gumiho and SEGA…
Kung magrereview man on my own di tumatagal ng 1 hour mea mea burlogs na agad! Anlakas ng kasi anesthetic effect ng Med-surg, Saunders, PHN Book and even yung mga prev NLE. Sobrang naging narcoleptic ako during my review days yun ang epekto sa akin ng NLE. Infairness, naging church goer din ako nun. I attend mass every Sunday at San Roque Parish and at Quiapo Church pagfriday. Thanks to Mah’ Luvs (Lea V.)
for always went along with me those days.
Times flies quickly, the NLE is fast approaching. Sobrang naging busy na ko at month of June daming take home exams and previous NLE to answer, Post validation and Pre-board is coming up. Ni-pagtulong sa household chores di ko magawa and even checking and playing with my doggies. Sa sobrang busy ko di ko na namalayan one of my doggies is feverish and been anorexic for more than a week na and to think one of my fave dog pa. I remember one of our reviewer said that “we will entering one of the most stressful phase in our lives. Full of pressures, trials and challenges na maeencounter namen throughout the review. OMGOSH’ ETO NA BA YUN???? June 10 at around 12 midnight I’m answering 300 items pass board exam questions that time. My Ate went downstairs sabay tanong: Kan, bakit umiiyak si Pea??? (my younger sistah) Me: Hindi, ko alam!? Then she go outside, I wonder bat antagal niya pumasok, lumabas ako ng bahay and I saw her crying…I assessed our dog no pulse and not even breathing. I started to cry
while hinahaplos ko siya. I try to finish answering the pass board exam pero I can’t control the tears falling from my eyes. Di ako nakatulog agad cause I’m still grieving for his lost. Pumasok pa din ako kinabukasan kaso super late na ko nun. Nung on the way to shield inside ng MRT teary eyed pa din ako. I’ve tried so hard na hindi humagolgol sa loob ng mrt. Buti na lang late din si Sweetipie (Pawleng) I texted her na sabay na lang kami pumasok and then nung nakita ko siya nagbreakdown na talaga ko I hugged her and verbalized my feelings. Thanks so much sa’yo Mrs. Pauline Javier
for comforting me, enough with sad moments.
