What a year! My first year of the nursing program is OVER!
I only have 3 semesters left. I think I managed to squeak by with straight "A's" too.
This last semester was enough to try a soul. Some of you followed me through it and I thank you for all the kind words and encouragement. As a recap, this semester I: got married, put a contract down to build a house, got treated for stage 1 cervical cancer, had an abdominal laparoscopy for endometriosis removal then, about 7 weeks ago, got pregnant (due around christmas) and sold my current house earlier this week. Throughout all of this, I still kept everything up with school. I am so freakin' proud of myself! Sorry for tooting my own horn, but everyone here is so supportive.
Now I don't feel cliche' when I say to newbie student nurses or nursing school wannabes, "It can be done!" Because now I know it really can!!!
Good luck everyone who is taking their finals and also those who are awaiting their acceptance letters.
