I haven’t dropped off the planet!
I have been really busy with my last semester of nursing school, so I haven’t been on here that much. I’ve been doing the normal tests & clinical, but also the extras. I’m networking, updating my résumé, cover letter, references, writing my speech for pinning, looking for a RN position, preparing for my final, preparing for my exit HESI (which our school requires us to get a 950 to be considered a pass), and so much more. I will keep you all updated as I can. Sorry for not posting! I still love you guys!!I graduate in a month! Ahhhhhh!
I’m mentoring two first-semester nursing students (I’m 2nd semester) and it’s making me create all these materials of “DON’T YOU BE LIKE I WAS” pro-tips.
This one is HOW TO SURVIVE NURSING SCHOOL
Almost done….about to sign up for last trimester.
I graduate from nursing school in May 2013…….knock on wood
I wish my nursing instructors followed this rule…..
First pediatric nursing test is this morning……..
My anxiety is pretty high. I’ve heard that the Peds instructor is pretty relentless with testing. I have studied so much for this unit test that I’m dreaming of the material. Ugh….Not exactly the sweet dreams I had in mind. =P
Tests - Per nursing school grading scale
Getting a 100% (p.s. this like NEVER happens)
Getting an A - (94% and above)
Getting a B - (86-93%)
Getting a C - (78-85%)
Getting an F - (Anything below a 78%)
Truth about nursing school!!!
What what!!! I passed Mental Health!!
W00T W00T ladies and gents! That’s right! I survived the crazies. LOL
I received an 87% on my final exam, and an 82% overall average.
I have a fun filed weekend planned with some of my school buddies. We are participating in the Color Run here in Memphis.
After all that fun I will be returning to studying. Pediatric Nursing is up next. I’m scared. I’ve heard this course is difficult, but I will bust my ass to pass the course!!
Exhausted by this week……
I’m so exhausted by this week already, & it’s only Wednesday (10-10-12).
Today studying like a boss
& Psychology class this evening
I survived the Mental Health Nursing test 3 and HESI. I got an 82% on the test, but the HESI was difficult. It’s over now. NOW ON TO MORE IMPORTANT THINGS……..
Mental Health Nursing final is tomorrow. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!! NERVES!!!
READY SET GO………..
Studying……LIKE A BOSS
I have a crazy busy week ahead, but I’m only going to take it one day at a time. The less I obsess about my test, HESI, & final in mental health, the less anxiety I have. Test 3 and HESI are tomorrow (10-9-12) and the final is Thursday (10-11-12)
Today, STUDY LIKE A BOSS!
