starting again

  1. 0
    Well, it has been a year since I started with Excelsior. It has been a while since I last posted also. A deployment got in the way. I failed my first test in January 2013 (Transitions) and passed my second (Safety) with a C. I only need the nursing classes, I am almost done with my deployment and thankful too. I can't wait to hit the pavement running with this. I have started back up studying, I brought a bunch of nursing books with me. I am on a boat so my life is consistently inconsistent. I want my ASN done by October to include the CPNE, and my goal is to Ace every other test and clinical portion. I think this is doable. I need a ton of advice, if you have it please share it. Thank you all for everything you do, I want to start this New Years off with a bang. Happy New Year you all!!!!

    I am also deployed, but would prefer that my new year does NOT start off with a bang as I am on land and that would mean incoming mortars. Outgoing is fine; incoming, not so much. LOL

    I always found it helpful to pay for and schedule my exams, thus setting a deadline for myself. Otherwise with some of those exams, I could have studied into oblivion and never felt quite ready.

    I recommend the notes from studygroup101.com and the practice exams from EC. Both are great! Good luck, stay safe, and thank you for serving.

    I am not boots on ground, but floating in the drink on a giant vessel. I have been studying up a storm. I luck out here because it is my Chief and myself that provide care to the 330+ on our small ship. We have aided with a few medical emergencies, and I love it. I can't wait to be a nurse and want to have my ASN not too long after RTHP.
    Thank you for your service to these article/website, and to our great country. I hope you are returning home soon.

    Ok, now I am starting this up. With work-downs and getting ready for dry dock, time has been slipping from me. I need to strap on the seat belt, and lock myself in my room. I will knock out at least one test in October if it is the end of me!!!!

    What's RTHP, anyway? Return to home port? I assume you are home from deployment? If so, welcome home! I have been back from my deployment for 6 months now, hard to believe how fast time goes.

    Which exam do you have in your sights? Get it scheduled, get it done!
