After taking the baby home, and adjusting to having a newborn, she did not know where to begin when it came to studying for the NCLEX. One of her nursing school friends announced that she had just passed the NCLEX and Nurse Stephanie reached out to congratulate her; that's when her friend recommended NHY.

Gisselle first sought out pursuing a career in physical therapy but soon realized that she needed more. Even though physical therapy was enjoyable, it was not a good fit for her. Nursing was always her my mind. So, she decided that she did not want to waste anymore time and went back to school to get her nursing degree.

She began her program at the beginning of the pandemic, and it was truly a crazy time, but she was able to successfully graduate with the support of her family.

She failed the NCLEX exam (1st attempt) soon after graduation: She was “75 and out” but not in the way you want it to go.

Over the next 8 years, she questioned what she was really meant to do and who she was meant to be…..she always came back to nursing but was so fearful of failing- not just the test, but herself and her family.
Kara started listening to the NHY podcasts, YouTube videos, and attended the free weekly zooms! She started to find hope again, but still needed more content.

She signed up for the 3 week course, followed the method and study schedule the best she could!

"I have never had so much confidence and understanding of the nursing practice"

In May, she passed the NCLEX and wanted to become part of the team to help others who are in the same situation

While pursuing her degree, she worked as an aide on the OB/GYN floor where now she is a registered nurse.

Nurse Gabriella is determined to help her students in anyway that she can. She can’t wait to be with them every step of the way while they achieve their goals.


MARIO CASTIELLO  

Mario grew up with a passion for his own health as well as the health of others. He considered many different career paths from engineering, accounting, teaching, and every healthcare profession you can think of!

Mario took and retook nearly every class his local community college offered. Mario's first Bachelors of Science was in exercise science, seeking a career as a physical therapist (PT). After too many GRE attempts, retaking more courses, an ill grandfather, Mario reconsidered his career as a PT.

A new fork in the road brought him to a better suited career as an RN. Even in nursing school he had to retake maternity. After nursing school Mario discovered NCLEX High Yield (thank goodness!) and started to connect concepts that nursing school only made us memorize.

He earned an internship during his NHY course. He passed on his first attempt (78 and out)! Mario attributes his success to his failures.
