Check out my honest and true reaction the morning after taking the NCLEX-RN exam.
Check out this video to see what’s been going on with me lately 🙂 I walked the stage, went to Bahamas and started studying for the NCLEX-RN.

After 3 years, 6 months, 3 weeks and 4 days I am finally finished with nursing school. I’m so full of joy and thankful to God for holding on to me, being my security blanket and showing me his unconditional love. I have been through many ups and downs through this journey and it is finally coming to a close. I can’t wait to replace my LPN with my RN license!
Can you guys believe I am so close to graduating??? I seriously can’t. I started off as a college dropout, then a waitress, then a model, and then I went to CNA school… THEN LPN School and NOW I’m finally graduating from RN school. I went through many different routes but I ultimately ended up right where I needed to be. The sky is the limit. God has made a way for me thus far, and I’m so thankful!!
In this video I discuss:
1. Upcoming Graduation April 2018

4. Additional Study Tips

After 53 clinical days and 408 hours, I am finally finished! No more care plans!! In this video below I express my happiness and relief from being finished with my clinical rotations. Clinical days for me were very difficult because the hospital where I did my rotations is about 25 miles away from home. It doesn’t seem like much, but when you have to be there at 7:00am sharp, it can be a challenge. I would wake up at 5:00am every day and leave by 5:30am, to make it there by 6:15am. Some days, I wouldn’t sleep that well but I had to push forward and continue. After all of these months I’m finally finished!
People ask me all the time what I use in my hair. So I demonstrate what I use and exactly how it comes out…
Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo
Texture ID Deep Treatment Masque (7-10 mins)
Texture ID Styling Creme
ECO Styler Flax Seed and Castor Oil Gel
Jamaican Castor Oil
…and let it air dry. Voila!
I attempted to film a really good “Day in the life” series from Monday through Sunday….. but I either 1) kept forgetting to record, 2) was too busy to record, or 3) was too tired. Since I started this journey, I’ve gone from working full time, to part time, and now I work per diem. I was superwoman for a while, juggling it all. But as time passed, school got harder so I decided to cut back a bit. In this week, I recorded a few clips so you can get an idea of what it’s like to juggle school, work and your personal life.
