First day Monday

  1. Finally...it's here. The day after tomorrow I will be starting nursing school. I can't describe the feeling. It's like a mixture of dread, excitement, apprehension, uneasiness, happiness... I know I feel blessed though. I stood over my kitchen sink sanitizing it and a feeling of blessed assurance came over me. :angel2: Realization hit me: I am about to embark on a new and fantastic journey, and forever improve the lives of my family. Never will I be without a job, I will always be able to provide for my children. That's a good feeling.

    I've just completed my first semester and am still thankful everyday for being at nursing school. Your first day...wow, it's a big one. Have a big breakfast and be prepared to have your head spin for a few days. Don't get scared...you'll settle into the routine really quick. Good luck and don't forget to tell us how you went!

    Kiyasmom, I feel the same way as you do! I know that I have a couple of rough years ahead of me, but the feeling that I am taking care of my family is a blessing! I hope that you have a wonderful first day of school!

    I am so excited for you....you are among the first of us to start on this wonderful but tiring journey called "nursing school". I hope everything goes well for you and I know it's going to be hard but try to get some rest tomorrow....oh and look out for the "leeches" ( the students who like to climb on you and suck out all of your energy and knowledge)....lol. Don't forget to tell us how everything goes....sending {{{Calming vibes}}} to you.

    Long, hot bubble bath by candlelight, with a glass of chilled wine and some soothing music playing.......that's my recommendation for Sunday evening, because who knows when you're going to get the chance again LOL!

    The very best of wishes and lots and lots of luck for Monday.

    I remember my 1st day (about a year ago) and all the feelings that you are experiencing. I want to wish you lots of luck. I remember thinking during my first lecture that I couldn't believe I was actually there--being instructed on nursing. It was a great feeling! enjoy your experience! Let us know how you're making out.

    It will be scary but fun! Go in with a good attitude and be ready to learn! But the first few days it iwll be head spinning I think!

    I sat up front on the first day, determined to see and hear everything. It worked well. Hopefully I can grab the front seat next term!
