Reini is Officially an RN!

On Monday, August 11, Reini took the NCLEX exam. This is the grueling exam that must be passed in order to receive the title of "Registered Nurse". Reini had studied for, well, it seems like she studied forever! She was worried sick as she went to the test, but she was cautiously excited that all of her studying would finally pay off. Upon exiting the test, she was certain that she didn't pass. (Of course, this is one of those tests that makes almost EVERYONE feel like they didn't pass. Those of you who are RN's (or are married to one) I'm sure can sympathize.) Before I left for work at 6:30 Wednesday morning, I checked online to see if her results had been posted. Sure enough she had passed and was officially an RN. Even though this was Reini's day off, I pulled her out of bed, dragged her into the office, and sat her down in front of the computer. She immediately started to cry. She is ecstatic! I am ecstatic! And, I am so proud of her! She put everything she had into this test and it payed off. Way to go nurse Reini!
