Wow, look at where you are at! So many don't even make it past the entrance exams! LPN school is hectic and stressful, and you wonder if any of it is going to stick in your brain after all is said and done. IT DOES! It is amazing to me how much I reflect back to a certain teacher, pt from clinicals, or lesson learned while in school. Eventually everything does fall into place and makes perfect sense!
I remember how wore out I was and even though I was close to graduating, was still overwhelmed to the point I wasn't sure I was going to make it through another grueling test or long day of clinicals and care plans
. But I did it, and oh how blessed and happy I am. It was ever so worth all the stress and HA's.
Even though your time is limited between studying, family, work or what have you, you do need to take some time for just you. Take a few moments to reflect on how far you have come, envision where you hope to go and do. Take time to relax in a bubble bath, listening to the music of your choice and think of something other than school. Those few precious moments enable you to refresh and refocus. You can get through this, you will get through this. Remember to laugh and keep your chin up.
Best of luck to you! -Jodie
