♥ It means to us that someone like you listens and cares

Dear Kim
Thanks for all the information you sent me.  After two weeks of waiting and whining about how hard the listening test was, I received the test result yesterday and guess what… I actualy PASSED it.  I got a 10 in Listening, a 9 in both reading and speaking and 7 in writing.  It’s still not bad for my writing, though because  all I care about is passing the test. And I’m so glad I did.
I really appreciate all your help and that last minute sample of the listening tests.  Have a happy valentine’s day and more power!
Regards, MC

>Dear kim
Thank you a million .I am full of confidence to pass the CRNE as i past the NCLEX. Although there is some difference between them ,i still thought i can make it .I have been working over 10 years as a registered nurse .i used to work in pediatric department for 8 years. i know the process of RN. firstly,i need to meet the requirements, then i could apply for the assessment. that might cost 1 year or more to complete. then i need to pass the SEC, finally, i could write to CRNE. anyway ,take care !
