    LOL, oh you guys crack me up! I'm still in my first year and would say I'm sick of school as well but it's too soon to go around admitting that... but I can tell you that next Friday I will be exactly half way through my first year, and on March 14th I will be a 1/3 of the way through the entire program (and hence 33% of a nurse) and that my graduation day is June 9, 2006. Since I don't know exactly how many days away that one is, I think I can still be considered semi-sane.

    May 7th and counting! I cannot stand school anymore. It is hard to focus and my brain is just too full anymore. I am just hanging on and doing the best I can........

    Rose, you and I have the same countdown since we graduate on the same day. Although your finals are closer than mine, we have ours the week we graduate. Talk about no time to chill out before pinning! And yes, I am so sick of school right now I can't stand it!!! I am hating it extra today, since I have clinicals tomorrow at 0600 and have to leave by 0415 to get there! We are almost there............

    lol, i used to say stuff like that. at end of first semester, i'm like, "im 25% of a nurse!"
    hmm, let me think... i have finished 3 semesters=75% of a nurse. today i finished my 3rd week of school, and we have 15 weeks this semester, so i am 20% done with this semester. since after third semester, i had only 25% of my nursing education left and now i am 20% done with that 25% that means....
    I am 80% a nurse!
    lol, i knew that algebra class would go to use sometime! i am such a dork

    Why aren't you having a pinning ceremony? How could it matter to the school if the students raise their own money for the bulletins, snacks or whatever? We sold candy the last semester and made enough money to have a nice ceremony and left some for the next class.

    But I understand where you are coming from. The object is to get OUT of school and I know you are anxious to do that.
    Because our University just invested in a multi-million dollar facility and the university is afraid that if the nursing department has a pinning ceremony that none of the nursing students will go to the "whole college graduation". They just want their facility to look good. It's all political crap. We were going to have our own and pay for it, but the university as well as the nursing dean said that we need approval from them. We petitioned and was denied. We are still getting pinned, but at our graduation banquet in our dress clothes. When we graduate with the entire school we will be wearing the same old boring cap and gown that the whole college wears. not the traditional white nursing dress and cap. I have purchased my own white nurses cap and white dress and plan on getting my photo's done on my own since our school is not doing this for us. We were going to take our class money and hold our own pinning ceremony off campus, but none of our instructors will come and no one has the strength to put anything together anymore. I have loved nursing school, and all the wonderful lifetime friends that I will have from this experience, but I hate my program. There is not 1 instructor that I respect as a nurse, person, or mentor. Can you tell I'm over it?

    Jen that's terrible how your school is doing things. Anyway, May will be here before you know it and it will be over.

    And these professors call themselves nurses? What r they teaching u all? NOT to care? Nonetheless don't let them get u down... I am so sad for u all...

    I think I would send this letter to the President of your University AND make sure that it gets published in the campus newspaper! You should try to push some buttons! Polietly, but go all the way, as it seems u have already gone as far as u can in your school (dean included?) I wouldn't stand for it. The University needs to realize that they wouldn't have that nice facility if it weren't for the money that you the students paid to attend the University! Don't go down w/o a fight!

    Whats really sad is that we are all such a close clas which makes our instructors even more angry. I think they enjoy the nursing classes when all the students hate each other and compete for who"s the best. When we went to them regarding the pinning ceremony we told them that if we cannot advocate for ourselves what makes you think we would be able to do it for our patients? They really hated that remark. Anyhoo, like I said, I am just over it to the point that I just don't care anymore. I can't wait until May. I think the school will be getting a nice letter from our class, but not until after I get that degree in my hand and have my state boards scheduled, because I wouldn't want them to just "forget" to send my transcripts into the board of nursing and hold me up for liscenseure. Just 3 and a half more months.
