    This is going to be a big week for me...
    Monday-Fundamentals test over 6 chapters--Also my 24th wedding anniversary.

    Tuesday- Pharmacology test over 8 chapters and check offs on assessments and vital signs.

    Wednesday-Clinical orientation--we get to wear our uniforms for the first time.

    I probably should be nervous...I have not studied near enough..we will see!

    Thanks for the hug!

    stephany,
    thanks for the hug. one going back to you (((stephany))).

    remember "i can do anything i set my mind to!!!" say this over and over and believe it and it will happen.

    a bit of test-taking strategy: my friends and i go into the testing room only about 10 minutes before time for the exam to start. we "go to the mountain" during this 10 minutes. what this entails is visualization. we close our eyes, relax, and visualize being at/on a mountain and talk out loud to each other about beautiful, peaceful, calming things we see. if you're not a mountain person, but prefer the beach or any or tranquil location...this will still work. it helps to calm our nerves, gets our mind off the exam, and is a wonderful relaxation technique. (one day you may tell a patient about this...lol)

    happy studying everyone...good luck...and i'll see you "at the mountain"

    Monday: Adoption is supposed to be final, but the lawyer is being a prick calling it off until we can pay him in full...been fighting with this for over a year....and I have a Micro quiz....and I have to go to work tonight 7p to 7a.

    Tuesday: Advanced Human Physiology at 6pm

    Wednesday: Microbiology at 1 and work at 7p to 7a again.

    Thursday: STATE BOARDS with a car that probably won't make it to Indy and hope that I am back in time for Adv. Hum. Phys. at 6p for a test.

    Friday: Work at 7p.

    Plus having to get kids ready for school, watch a grandson till he goes to school at 11am, do laundry for 8 people, and do work for 2 internet classes!
    Think I'll live? I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed!
    Thanks for the hugs......I needed 'em!

    Thanks Stephany

    I needed that hug! Today I have my skill check for vitals.

    Tomorrow I have my bed bath, back rub, ROM, occupied bed making & transferrring pt. skill checks. I am sooo nervous about them!!!

    Wed I have an exam.

    Thurs. I have my first day of clinical!!! I am really sick & nervous over this one!!!!

    Friday, class, but I am sure by then I will have another skill check to practice for!

    I knew nursing school would be stressful, but I never thought it would be this stressful or time consuming.

    Thanks again Stephany & good luck this week!

    THANK YOU!!! I NEEDED THAT HUG! I woke up today feeling like crap again... called in to school sick, but am gonna go anyway I think. The GUILT of not going and the FEAR I might miss something crucial means staying home would be more stressful than just going!

    I will probably go and make an appearance and then leave if I don't feel any better. Way I see it, that way at least I will know I tried!

    Sniffle -- they THREW me out of class! Just cuz I couldn't talk! Told me a sore throat could infect the entire class :uhoh21:

    But at least I made the "heroic" effort of going. Hah... teacher can't call me undedicated, or a slouch or whatever terms they use for people who don't attend class or fake illness!

    Stephany,

    Thanks for the hug.

    Everybody....

    I will pray for all of you; being laid-off, I'm probably the only one
    who has the time!! Make sure you all take some for yourselves
    so you don't go nuts; even if its the 10 min. of visualization. But
    do it EVERYDAY! Have a good week.
