I have had so many happy “moments” in my life and I am so thankful for all of them. The best of these “moments” involved the births of my children and grandchildren. Now I get to talk about the “proud” moments as well. For the second time (the first time was for Ashley), I have had the pleasure of jumping up and down when one of my daughters found out she had passed the most dreaded nursing test EVER.

ERIN PASSED THE NCLEX EXAM! YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is now officially Erin Oguin, R.N. and had a great time today at work signing her name with the R.N. added. When she signed onto the Arkansas Board of Nursing website and saw that she passed she had all the nurses she works with at LeBonheur look at the screen so she knew she wasn’t just seeing things.

For those who are not familiar with the NCLEX exam, no one has ever taken the test and felt confident that they passed. It is an individualized test where your answer to each question determines the next question you get.

I am so proud of both of my daughters and their accomplishments. Many years of nursing school and so many hours of studying and research are rewarded when they take that one test that determines their entire future.

CONGRATULATIONS ERIN! WE ARE ALL SO PROUD OF YOU!!!! There will be many tiny little NICU babies who will gets lots of love and special care from a very special nurse.

What could be better when I “eventually” get to my old age than to have two daughters who are nurses taking care of me..........
