Results of the Nov. 2008 Nursing Licensure Exam

It is finally done.

After almost a year of heartbreaks, disappointments and trials, I was finally able to take the November 2008 Licensure Examination for Nurses last weekend, Nov. 29 and 30. I can still feel all the stress steaming out from my body to this time, my heart pounding like mad, maybe even more than the time I was actually holding and answering the exam.

Of course you know I was part of the Northcap review center scam and was not able to take the licensure last June. Funny, but during that time I knew I wanted to take the board because I believed I would have passed it but after some time and now that I am done with it, I am really unsure and completely anxious about the results. I don’t know about the others but the exam was not easy for me. There were concepts I really did not know, some I know but forgot already. I did my best in trying to guess though! LOL.

Prior to the exam, I was praying so hard, and even made special petitions to miraculous figures in the church like to Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan, to our patron here Sta.Catalina of Alexandria, and to the Black Nazarene in Quiapo.

For what it’s worth, I can truly say that the road to the nursing boards was definitely a very spiritual experience for me. Each time I went to these churches and prayed, I knew I felt God’s presence. It was weird but I remember wanting to cry so bad each time because I felt so warm inside, especially when Piapot offered a mass for me in the church of Sta. Catalina which I did not know, once I heard my name I wanted to cry so much, for no reason actually. In Quiapo, there were so many making petitions for the boards too. I know so because once the blessing after mass came, they were raising their envelopes and pencils.Β  It was hair-raising, such faith.

Each time I would think about it, I want to pass the board exam not really for myself but for all the people who were there to help and support me. Maybe there are many examinees who deserved to pass more than me because they are smarter and reviewed more, but the people around me who gave all their unconditional love and support definitely deserved not just to pass but to be number one in the boards. So I am praying big time that all their efforts will not go to waste.

My mother and father are most supportive I do not know what I’ do without them! A day before the exam, Mother Goose and I, together with her former student Dc. Ana and my cousin Jun, tried to locate my testing center. It was funny because we had realy no idea where it was but we still went and had fun trying to find it! When it was exam time, Don Domeng was making fun of it, diffusing my anxiety, plus, April, my former classmate who was also taking the exam said he was handsome! LOL.Β 

Kuya, my uncle, who I know is a very busy man, most probably dropped all his appointments to drive for us to the testing center to and fro. He could’ve made us commute but he kept on picking me up and waking up at dawn with us too to drive me there even when he was barely able to sleep the night before. Piapot, together with my very good friend and boss Remuel, went to a pilgrimage the same day of the board exam, hiking a 7.5 km mountain while praying all the while that I pass the exam. She said while they were climbing and praying the rosary, it was very hard unlike the last time because they felt so heavy, like they are carrying something heavy with them. She told me last night she felt as stiff as a robot after the climb and down.

Mommy, my aunt, and Kulot also went with me during the exam. When I said the board exam was difficult, Kulot told me if I fail she will go in hiding with me to Abra then come back when people have forgotten about it LOL! My man was so anxious weeks prior to the exam. He would remind me always to shade my set and keep my focus. I remember him telling me to not be nervous because he is already double nervous for us. He kept on going to church and during the exams he kept on telling me he was praying for me.

I knew many of my friends and all the people we know prayed for me, and are still praying for me. So many people love me I am such a blessed girl! Thank you so much for everything! Thank you everyone, thank you!

Hmmm… come to think about it now, with all the love I received, come what may, I feel I am already number one.

  2. panaderos,
    oo nga naisip ko talaga how blessed i am kasi bihira lang ang mga family na ganoon tulad ng sakin.

    mama jasmin,
    sabi nga din po ni mama ko eh. kahapon bumili kami ng mga medyo formal na tops kasi po OJT ko sa teaching weeee. love you din po.

  3. No big deal! Hindi lang ikaw ang bagsak ng first time and I don’t even have to think of a nice way basta derecho hindi nakalusot period na doon.Saka why are u thinking of the negative side-Just think positive na papasa ka, basta dasal ka lang lagi.Love you.

  4. maya,
    thank you. i believe i’ll be crazy without all of the people with me that time. i am easily stressed when i’m by myself so i really needed them and i was very thankful that they were there.

    mama jasmin,
    salamat po, nakakatense lang talaga kasi po ayoko naman na mabalewala yung effort ninyong lahat sa pagtulong sakin. kung sarili ko lang na pagpasa hindi po ako masyado ganun kaconcern pero yung isipin ko pa lang na magfail ako at may magtanong sa inyo hindi nyo alam kung pano sasabihin in a nice way na bumagsak ako, nako hindi ko yata kaya!

  5. You have done your BEST part, now leave everything to God and stop worrying about it. Of course dapat tuloy pa din ang request natin para hindi ka Niya makalimutan –sa dami ba naman ng humihingi ng AWA hehehe.Isipin mo na lang yung sinabi ni Kulot– di ba si Doc Alex ganyan din—ayun doctor na nurse pa. Just remember whatever the outcome you will always be LOVED.

  6. Wonderful that you saw that you are indeed blessed with all the people around you,giving their love to you as much as that. YOU ARE ALREADY NO. 1.

    I hope that you, have what you aspire for.1 now, And i congrats you for your effort with your exam.
