One year ago, in the throes of morning sickness, I quietly took and passed my nurse practitioner certification.
I pleaded with the test administrator to let me take a forbidden water bottle into the secured, videotaped test room. Thankfully rules were relaxed which allowed me an extra hour without dealing with nausea.
Now my license is in order, credentialing is complete, and I am cleared to start my first position in just 4 weeks.
I wish you the best in your new job.
