I went through pinning on December 18. Although I went through the RN program, i chose the delayed track, which split it into 7 semesters instead of 5. I did this because i have a husband and 3 small children, and live an hour away from campus. It was just a little less stressful on my family. So, having said that, i cant really give you much on each semester, because mine were different. But, I can tell you this..i learned that, although it is up to you to do well in class, it is almost imposible to do without the friends you meet along the way. You will see that you spend more time with them than with your family. The instructors are your friends, not your enemies..and you will have a much better experience if you know that from the beginning. Some students with me were constantly arguing and trying to force their hand with the instructors, who can be ruthless if given the chance. The best thing to do is know that you can go to them with anything...they will help.
As far as clinicals...BE FLEXIBLE!!! Yes, they give you a schedule each semester, but that is subject to, and WILL change...often times at the last minute. Then they will have to reschedule, which can also happen at the last minute....that is where most of your weekend clinicals come in. Flexibility is not a choice..it is a necessity. Car pool when you can, expecially to clinicals that are further away.
It is all worth it in the end. It truly is! Good luck to you, and if you need anything just ask.
