Back in November I posted several blogs about the passing of my 17 year old daughter.
Although this was personal information I was sharing publicly, I did this for several reasons:
- Life is about struggles and challenges, and the only way we can get through them is together.
- I knew that I needed the prayers of all the IENs I had come to know, for I had felt their prayers on my behalf repeatedly in the past.
- Here I had been providing hope and encouragement and I had come to a place and time when I sorely needed it myself.
- For all those people who questioned, “Is there really a Kim?”, or if all of this was a scam. The comments from caring and concerned IENs are certain to convince anyone of my existence and the loyalty of those who have allowed me to walk with them along their individual paths towards their common dream.
Thank you for updating us KIM, sorry that I was not able to get back to you. i am happy to inform you that I passed the CELBAN on my 1st try last March 30, 2014. Thank you for all the help, inspiration and guidance along the way of my studying. So I am doing my assessment now with CLPNBC and CRNBC. Hoping for the best. Goodluck to all and never loose hope, loosers are those who just giving up easily. God bless to all!!!! Cheers!!!!!

What is hope? Where does it come from? Why is it important? How do we sustain it?
I don’t really know, but I have been thinking about it all day today, with the first ever IEHP Hope Sessions. And I can tell you that by the end of the sessions, everyone walked away with it!
- What is a hope session? I don’t know.
- What do you do during a hope session? Convey hope?
- How do you do that? I don’t know. Send out the intention. Invite specifically chosen people. And see what happens.
- What happened? I can’t explain it. But something significant and special happen.
With it being Thanksgiving I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to all the IENs that have inspired my work. To this end, the first ever Hope Sessions are to be held tomorrow Tuesday October 14, 2014. And because it is Thanksgiving and we will be offering hope, the Hope Sessions are FREE!
…I just seem to know that you have helped already a number of Internationally Educated Nurses especially not only in leaping over a language barrier, but also instilling them hope and perseverance to pursue their dreams and help them to be exactly where the “bliss” is. I just wondered if I can be one of those people whom you have helped in achieving success. :)…
I have with me again this feeling of fear, completely mixed emotions because I don’t know how difficult the CELBAN exam is, or if I can make it with just one take… I guess I’m a little pessimistic and hopeless right now… How do I conquer this fear? …
I hope you can spare insights not only with regards to writing… leaving atleast a drop of hope for me that sooner or later, everything will be fine starting from passing the CELBAN exam down to complete registration to NNAS and the nursing regulatory bodies in Canada.
Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks a lot!
