Priceless, priceless, priceless.. you can do it!! $1415?! Jeez Louise!

lol I was too scared to add it all up, but it would be less than what’s posted here since I haven’t decided if I’m taking Kaplan or Hurst. I certainly can’t afford both!

where was the punchline, “priceless”?… oh wait that’s when you pass the NCLEX.

futurenightnurse - February 23, 2010

Yes… yes… it will all be worth it in the end. Meanwhile, I get to whine about it. lol

What’s the PHN stand for?

Public Health Nurse?

futurenightnurse - February 23, 2010

Yep! Though I’m sure I won’t sign my name like that unless I was actually working as one. It’ll be nice to have the certification anyway.

YIKES!!!! This has me even more financially scared!! They get ya every way they can don’t they?

It’s worth it. It’s worth it. It’s worth it. That’s what I have to keep telling myself. :p

Yes! We can do it! There IS light at the end of the tunnel! lol

There is light… but the bulb supplying the light costs a fortune.
