Pediatric Nursing Update…..
I had another test yesterday (11-15-12) at school, and I made an 86%!!! That’s a freaking B!! I’m so excited!
I have been studying my ass off, and it seems my grade is reflecting my hard work.
It’s funny because there are some nursing students who tease me because I study so much. Guess what…….they didn’t do well on this test!! I know what I have to do to graduate May 2013 and become an RN.
I’m going to keep on keeping on, because apparently I’m doing something right!!
Getting invited to a birthday party, baby shower, bridal shower, etc. while in nursing school…
Who has time to party when there is studying to do?!?!?
I have turned down so many baby showers and parties recently. I feel bad, but I know I need to study. A party isn’t going to get me through nursing school.
Studying Pediatric Nursing Today
Exhausted, but I have to stay ahead of my instructor. She doesn’t provide her power points, and it’s not like they would help that much.
Today, I’m going to finish up milestones. W00T (not really). Once you get past the first year, learning the milestones is pretty easy.
I have to also be familiar with what toys/games would be appropriate for each age group.
There is a really great web page that recommends toys for age groups. It’s called Ebeanstalk. You can check it out HERE.
So here I go……..
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!!
How I felt after my Mental Health test yesterday (9-11-12)
Instructor hasn’t posted grades yet, so maybe I’m being over dramatic. I studied HARD for that test, and when I opened the test book, I felt like I hadn’t studied at all!!! I will get through this. I’m just waiting to see my grade to see how much of my ego I need to pick up off the floor.
Psych Medication chapter. 62 flashcards strong! W00T!!
Phases of the menstrual cycle.
I’m up early for no reason…..
Since I’m up, I guess I’ll brew some coffee & work on studying my Psych meds. Antidepressants, anxiolytic, mood stabilizers, Antipsychotics oh my!
I love charts!
HOORAY FOR MORE STUDYING HELP!!!
Class begins tomorrow
I am taking Mental Health the first 6 weeks of the semester, and Pediatrics the last 6 weeks of the semester. I am also taking psychology, which is my last general education class!!!! I’m anxious, apprehensive, and excited!!! I only have 2 more FULL semesters and I will be done!! If everything goes right, I will graduate May 2013. *KNOCK ON WOOD*
I’m ready to kick this semester in the ass and show it who is boss!!!
I have already turned down baby showers, a pride event, a pole dancing event, and some parties because of nursing school.
It’s always “I can’t. I have to study.” or “I can’t. I have clinical.”
Such is life of s student nurse. ^_^
