It's official!

So it's now official! The letters R.N. can now legally follow my name! I found out I passed my boards a short 48 hours after finishing the exam; much better than the 3 months nurses had to wait years ago. Now it's on for my internship in the Cardiac ICU I've been working in since November. In July I'll take 3 weeks of class then start an intense training program with hands on patient care for 6 months or more! Maybe by early next year I'll be all on my own! Until then I'll enjoy being under the wing of a very qualified nurse!

Tests and more tests

Well, I took NCLEX yesterday and I am still breathing. It was definitly one of the biggest challenges in my life so far and I'm happy it's over! Although, still awaiting results, I am confident I did well!
Rusty has just finished another round of ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) testing. Passing these tests will help him move up in the ranks at work to become a Senior Master Technician (Chassis master, Drive Train master and Engine master). So far he has passed stering and supension, brakes, climate control systems, and electrical systems. After passing his latest, he is a Ford Certified Chassis Master! In addition he also has completed several tests in the other categories and only needs to take a few more classes to complete those requirements toward Senior Master. Congrats babe!

New pictures!

I added lots of new pictures to the photo link on the right of the page. My next project will be uploading the ton of pictures I have from our wedding! Right now not much is going on with us except I'm eagerly awaiting my NCLEX-RN exam on Tuesday! Can't wait to have that over with so I can finally say I am a Registered Nurse...Officially!

Trying something new!

It seems like families always have trouble staying in touch and keeping up with each other's busy lives. This will be our attempt to keep in touch and have pictures readily available to share with friends and family! Check out the photo album link on the right to see our collections : )
