    I'm a complete type A personality- so for me, it will be a huge acheivement to not care about not having all A's. This is my last chance, and by golly I'm going to get over it! LOL
    I have a 92% right now, and I am ok with that- finally! LOL

    I hear ya! I am to the point where I am thinking, "As long as I get a C, I will still graduate." Not that I *want* a C, but I don't have the energy to bust my bottom anymore for those extra points. School is aggravating because of some issues too frustrating to mention.

    Preceptorship is wonderful, on the other hand. My preceptor is awesome, the unit is wonderful and starting to grow on me. I went from not wanting to be on this unit at all to seriously considering working here when I graduate.

    Pinning is Nov. 16th and graduation is Nov. 17th. My dad's side of the family has turned my graduation into an excuse for a family reunion, so all of my great uncles, my grandpa, and my aunt and cousin are flying in from all over just to see me. I can't wait!

    And after graduation.. I get a puppy to keep me company while I stay home and study for NCLEX! 40 days till pinning!!

    A labrador retriever. I am still picking out names. In between studying I have been reading books on training a puppy. I will be the best doggy mommy on the block!

    Our final is on Nov. 5. We have tomorrow's plus 3 more weeks of clincals, 2 more regular exams, and an End of Program ATI test on Nov. 12 that we must get greater than 50 percentile on in order to graduate. :angryfire I'm not worried about that for me, but I am for others. Then we have 120 hrs of preceptorship. Pinning is December 14, Graduation is the 15th.

    I am soooooo over this school crap! I want to be done!!!

    This semester has proven to be the toughest yet. I can hardly wait for Dec. 14. I know I will make it but I have days when I have my doubts. I have a friend that will be grduating the AASN program with me. We have already gotten our first RN job at Lebauner Medical in Memphis. We are excited! and am looking foward to being out of school! Good luck to you, hope you have a holiday.

    *Sigh* I am sooooo tired! This semester has been my worst in terms of organization. However, classes are over, I'm currently on preceptorship, and I.CAN.NOT.WAIT!!!!!! Senioritis is one of the worst diseases to get. I did my community service project (I just have to write the paper), I did my professional meeting (I have to REwrite the paper cuz my prof lost it ), I still have to work on my group project with my groupmates, and I have to get my sit pass and apply for the job I was offered (I still have to apply solely for the policies/protocol) and then I'm DONE!!! Pinning is on December 8th and I'm ecstatic!!!!!

    mine has gone by so fast-probably cuz i have been so busy. i'm thinking the next 4 weeks might be slow, though! i've done all my projects and stuff. just some tests and ATI and a couple wierd other things thrown in.

    congrats everyone! we are going to be nurses! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! :spin:
