Are you about to graduate?

  1. And feel like your just so over it you could quit tomorrow?!? I need people to commiserate with.

    I have gone full steam ahead this whole time and now that we are 2 months from graduation, the thought of even going to school makes me nauseated. I am normally super positive but right about now I am a Debbie downer and everything gets on my nerves. Is this normal?! I need to feel like myself again but I just feel drained. One more final exam and 4 preceptorship clinicals left to go and it feels like I still have 4 years ahead of me until I graduate.

    This is pretty much the feeling of every final-semester nursing student. It will go away in 4-5 weeks. Hang in there.

    I feel the same way right now, as well as anxious. Lol. The thought of studying makes me want to take a nap/peel my skin off.

    Yup. Count me in. I'm 56 days away from graduation and I'm pretty sure I have an ulcer now.

    I have a HESI tomorrow and part of me hopes I fail it just so I can be done. I hate life right now, but I keep telling myself I'm *so* close.

    Good luck, I hope we all find a second wind to carry us through!

    I'm 71 days away. I've resorted to watching Sea Cruisers' cruise vlogs on YouTube instead of studying.

    Yep.

    I have 50 days left. I am playing on AN instead of working on my care plan that is due by midnight tonight, if that gives you any insight to my ability to push through at this point. I think my entire cohort feels like this.

    Everything isn't necessarily getting on my nerves, but it is extremely difficult for me to persuade myself to go to class--I still do go to class, but it's a struggle. Studying is also blah right now. Right now I'd much rather look for apartments and the shelter dog I'm hoping to get this summer.

    I don't understand how you feel. I'm eager to be working as an RN, but I'm working 24 hours per week in a CCU doing the same thing, just not making money. I'm happy and not anxious at all. Maybe take a breath and relax. Enjoy what you're doing now.

    100% me too. Graduation is May 5th and I feel like I could give up now

    I have 19 days left and zero motivation. Senioritis has befallen us all.
  13. by   NurseJ04
    Senioritis here too! 49 days until our last final. I am SO.OVER.IT. I just want to be done. I'm not even worried about my nursing class but having saved Micro for the last semester is killing me...please make it stop.

    And yes I find myself on the internet doing any and every thing BUT studying.

    My whole class and I are pretty much like this! Never seen us all so negative!! We are all just ready to get that degree and pass the NCLEX!!! Most of our class has already accepted jobs for after graduation, so cue senioritis x 1000. 47 days until BSN for us! Prayers for everyone here on finishing out this semester strong and on the NCLEX!!
