Passing Nurse Licensure exam after a dozen times

License card


As first aider first in a construction contractor working as a non registered nurse that helps people injured at their work, and in security agency as a medic and rescuer in an ambulance. This was my motivation and thinking that I really needed to be a registered nurse because nursing has wide scope of work not just in hospitals and clinic. Some belittles you because of not passing the exam, disrespects you, humiliates, etc. But, I am one step away from my dream, and my willingness not to stop but just rest.

It was 2019 pre pandemic time around October if I remember, and the board exam is about weeks to go that I decided to try again after working in construction and security sector. It was a self review again, but this time Iam working with no time to open books and notes unlike before that I had no job and at home. Being busy helps me to relax and not to worry board exam, it reduces my anxiety because it was just optional and already working in different field but in health related job.


I was supported by my girlfriend after she knew that I was secretly filed an application for the exam, my family didn’t heard about my plan too until the day of exam. It was first week of December where results are to come out and I was not interested about it. But funny my girlfriend waited excitedly to website of Professional Regulations Commission, and one midnight my gf calling me and told me that I was listed in the name of November 2019 Nurse Licensure Exam. And of course I don’t believe in screenshots so I tried to get a copy of the results, after trying to get one then my feelings is unexplainable and my mind is floating. That moment brought back all my memories in nursing school and all the people who mocked my ability. Another good news was that nurse salary in public hospitals was increased, so applying and having an experience in hospital is another story.


The lesson is, do not ever lose hope and surrender to something that is good for you. Do not mind what others think of you at present, continue what you’ve been dreaming and started, accomplish the tasks that is waiting no matter what times it takes you. Remember that its just an exam and you are what you are.

Remember that its just an exam and you are what you are.

Astrolux EC01 review

I bought this flashlight for its user interface called anduril. Anduril is a open source program for flashlight users, it has many options to your led flashlight. Astolux ec01 is one of the best and cheapest anduril flashlight you can buy on the market using 21700 battery. Its led is a xhp50.2 with 3500 lumens output that can make your night bright like a day comes with a tint 65000k cool white.


Build quality is good with extra o-rings to prevent water entering inside the flashllight. This flashlight can be use without the battery, just connect it’s usb port to a cable and a charger but it’s power is not in full power. Anduril’s functions will mot bored you from old use of light on and off. Candle, strobe, party strobe, beacon are some useful function of anduril program.

Working with Iron Workers

I never realized that it’s fun to work in a construction site, though it never really came to my mind and never had a dream working to that kind of job. But, as a first aider in a sub-contractor to a construction site of buildings and condominium it was fun and adventurous, my first day I thought it was a site of disaster, lots of debris around and heavy equipments roaming around. I already thinking of quitting my first job after 12 years of hibernation, the one good thing that happened was that I lost my weight because of walking watching and monitoring our welders and helpers on site. Using stairs up to 25 floors makes my blood bursts because of exhaustion. Meeting new people from different kinds of life, graduates, under graduates, professional, non-professional, bystanders and the community that is in the middle of Vertis North. Continue reading
