I'm lost without nursing school!

  1. 0 I finished my LPN program and I am getting pinned on Thursday night.

    After making nursing school my life for an entire year I have no idea of what to do with myself.

    I am reading a novel right now and catching up on T.V shows.

    I have already completed all of my paperwork for my license (mailed off last Friday) and registered for NCLEX-PN. I have already set up my study schedule for after the kiddo goes to bed around 8pm every night.

    I don't have a job to go to till I take boards and I feel so lost.

    It's like I don't even know how to relax anymore because I am used to the constant stress of school.

    I am going to start Excelsior in January but I can't really do anything until I pass my LPN boards.

    Sigh, I have waited for this day for months and now I am bored!

    Lol, I think I am an adrenaline junky or a sucker for punishment. :trout:

    I know what you mean. I'm on break and keep feeling like I need to study something. Give yourself a few weeks to settle down and you'll be fine. Many congratulations and good luck on your boards. Jules

    Yeah, go have fun. It does consume so much of who we are, it's a hard habit to break. Your break is short lived so you might as well enjoy it.

    I have been partying every weekend since I been out of school and it's been wonderful. I start back in January for my last and final semester, but when I get out I think I'm just going to enjoy life!!!!!!!!!!!!
