77 calendar days til my FINAL final exam of nursing school
! (40 of those are class or clinical days)
I know I've posted about this before, but this is all I have been thinking about. Some days it seems like school is beating me down. The instructors are harsh (and sometimes hateful, and sometimes they just make you feel like hte biggest idiot in the world), the days are long, the care plans
still suck, and sometimes if feels like it will NEVER be over.
I am happy that I have made it this far. Our school has a piss poor retention rate (because they try to kill you before you graduate) but I'm thisclose to graduating. I've put up with the hell for this long and I'm almost there.
when i started college (not nursing school itself, but the pre-reqs part of it) my son was 14 months old. Now he's 4 1/2 years old, the baby that was born 13 months into my schooling is 2 1/2. WHen i think of that, I really see how long I've been doing this, and how far I've come.
So! An encouraging post for those of us graduating soon! We are almost there.
3 months til graduation day
2 months, 27 days til pinning
77 days til final exam (its 11 days before graduation)
20 class days (5 tests, 1 exam)
20 clinical days.
thats my happy dance. I'm almost there and so are you!!
and for those who aren't there yet-It really has flown by. You'll be here before you know it.
