So far, everything is going great. 98% on my first lecture exam, 94% on my first Physical Assessment exam. Had a set-back with my med math test. I have always got 100% on med math before. I completely blanked on how my mL were in an ounce and ended up getting 3 questions wrong and did not pass the 1st attempt (you can only get a 90 or better to pass). I ended up get 100% on the re-take and I'm done with med math for the semester. Whew! Our skills evaluations are simply pass/fail. All passes so far...yay!
We have our 2nd lecture exam tomorrow. I'm really enjoying nursing school
. Yes, it's a LOT of hard work! Yes, there's a LOT of studying. However, I just love what I'm learning and I've got wonderful classmates. I used to get so nervous that nursing school was going to be horribly difficult. It's certainly not a piece of cake, but it's not as bad as I though it was going to be. Sometimes, you have to take with a grain of salt what you hear/read on the internet. After all, who goes around posting "everything is great" posts all the time? We're going to hear/read more negative things than positive because that's human nature.
Congrats on getting off to a good start and keep up the good work
