Review at Merge

Now that September started the Ber-months and that the season of Yuletide is starting nearly in our backyards, this is also a good start for something very important in my carrier as a practicing nurse in the future- It's Review Time for the upcoming November 29-39 NLE. It's hella good that I chose Merge Center to be my review center. Even if it looks like it's already late for a review to start, still as a Merge baby, I will go for it because this will give me a good opportunity to pass the board exam. All I need to get my PRC card is to really work hard and have focus, focus and focus.

Dr. Divine, the Vice president of Merge Review Center, gave her orientation about the review, her expectations and what to expect on the review and of course, the Board Exam in her most entertaining way and we surely did enjoy her. Her test on "Kamuning", was a real fun part for us. well, It's just my first day and I am expecting so many things in the review. to those who are not familiar with Merge Review Center, check this excerpt from http://nursingcrib.com/merge-review/ about Merge. You can also visit and inquire at http://www.merge-review.com/ , the official site of the review center.

It is distinguished from other tribal weaving by the intricate figures and patterns depicting the folklores and religion of the tribe. The Mandaya have carried the human and crocodile motifs to their highest expression. The crocodile is held sacred as shown by the frequency with which it appears in their decorative design. This art is handed down from generation. There is no patterns copy. E…
