A few months ago, I was pondering if I would still pursue nursing because of a lot of things such as failed exams, and unpleasant news of IEN that were trying to enter the field here in Canada. In addition, I’m not a PR yet, this thing adds to my burden. Then, 2 months ago, a friend of mine got his license as a lpn in Ontario but too bad he can’t get a job. At present, he is here … with his license and got a casual position as a lpn in one of the big hospital in here. This event gave me the motivation that maybe it is not the end for me, I could start from scratch and work slowly but surely to get that license.
From a nurse in the Philippines, I work in different fields here in Canada. At present, I’m a window installer of commercial buildings. I have to fight the fear of falling out of the building, the cold winter that makes your hands and feet numb, and the slippery roads. My work is good but you always thinking and wishing that you hope you are inside the warm buildings of the hospital and doing the job that I like and I know well.
As of now, I’m thinking where to take the CELBAN cause the examinations in Calgary are fully book until June. So, I’m thinking that if I could go to Vancouver or Winnipeg to take the exam 1 to 2 months earlier.
Thanks Kim for everything. I’m wishing you … a Happy New Year.
