Are you graduating in May or June, 2013? We have 7-8 more months to go! I would love to get a thread going to see how many of us are 'here' and see if we can keep each other encouraged till we see the finish line! We are almost there!
@StudentnurseCT, @Katie71275 and @Elisheval, we are almost there. What classes are you all in right now? How's clinical going? I am doing mental health. I'm enjoying the theory portion but clinical experience has not been the best. Anyways, I'm so glad you all wrote in! Let's keep the excitement going & our spirits up till next May!
May 2013 hoooooray!!!! finishing 3 year BSN In ped's now and actually don't mind it What else is everyone else in? Do you guys have a preceptorship in your last semester and if so do you know what kind of unit you'll be on?
Just finished Peds, in Med/Surg II now, then Psych Nursing II. Pharm II. Clinicals are so much more fun now!! We are going to a job fair next month. It's starting to feel real, and I saw a nurse at clinical that graduated from my program in May and is already off orientation.
Wow, most of you are doing Peds/OB rotation this semster! We did Peds/OB during block 3 (this past summer) and this semester we are doing Mental Health/Community health & Home health. I really loved OB!!! I hope you all enjoy it. When I finally got to help with the delivery it was such a wodnerful experience. I was so afraid that families wouldn't want a nursing student in there coming to observe but after working with the patient and her family all day, they insisted I stayed and watch the baby's arrival. Even though I have kids of my own, it was still very moving experience each time a baby was born. Something for you all to look forward to. Peds was great. I love working with kids but med math really got to me. lol I don't hate math. It was just confusing! Have you all done the calculation for reconstituted meds? I actually enjoy math... but this one was really tricky!
Anyone in Mental Health, Psych yet??? I didn't love Pharm and boy do we have lots of drugs to learn in this class! If you have any great learning tips for learning meds, please share.
