the semester is winding down. I have one more week of class and clinicals, then it’s finals time! So close. It’s been an amazing journey.
I feel like everyone in my class is part of a wonderfully dysfunctional, family. I am going to be sad when I won’t get to see them.
But, I’m ready for pinning and the beginning of my nursing career! Merry christmas to me.
My instructor just informed me that we are just going to have an observation day in the ICU…which means no paperwork. The one time I actually procrastinate, I’m rewarded. Maybe I’ll try it more often.
and only have two days until Thanksgiving break.
I would love it if you would take the time to send me a message telling me a little bit about yourself! I’d like to get to know all of you!!
I am super excited. I got a 30/30 on my Endocrine pharmacology exam! Prior to this exam, I was failing with a 75%. Now, I am well above passing!!
I couldn’t be more excited!! Time to go out for dinner with my husband in celebration.
Happy Halloween, lovely followers! I hope you have an amazing evening!
“I am a nursing student. I study more than I sleep. I am never “done” with my homework because there is always more to do. I cover about 500 pages of info per week and I am expected to retain and recall it all at any given time. I may only go to class or clinical a couple or a few days a week, but don’t let that fool you, I am always a nursing student with work to be done. I am giving up my time with family, friends, and myself to learn how to save other people’s lives. Please support and encourage that. If you are a nursing student or you know and love one, you know the drill - Re-post it!”
This is what is trending on facebook right now. Thought it applied! :)
Well, it’s been a while. I’ve been super busy. I had my cardiology exam. I passed the theory part, but failed the pharm (tele/CV nursing is NOT for me). So, I had remediation for that.
Today, I had the Renal/Shock/Burns/MODs exam. Passed both theory and pharm this time! Woo! Certainly helps that I had a acute renal failure/septic shock patient last week!
We also got our order forms for our Nursing Pinning ceremony. They are $50…whaaaat!? I don’t think so. I’m ordering a generic one that says “RN” on it because I can’t justify paying $50 for a pin that I’m only going to wear for one ceremony. :P
Please, let me know if you, my dear followers, have any questions about nursing school/content. I might be able to help explain some things in a way that’s easy to understand.
It’s my last 12hr clinical day of the semester (then I switch to two 6hr days). Feeling very drained from studying and paperwork. Someone tell me it’s worth it in the end! :P
