Last Semester Finally Here! Who's with me? ++

  1. What are you looking forward to most this semester? Know what area you want to go into yet? Do you have a preceptorship this semester?

    This week I begin my last semester of nursing school (ADN), well, until I start the BSN program this fall. I can't wait to get it over with, I'm so burnt out on this stuff. I am most looking forward to preceptorship, it's going to be 120 hours of working with our preceptor's schedule and I got my area of first choice: L&D. I should know pretty definitively by the end of that whether L&D is really what I want to do.

    I am looking forward to graduating! I am mentally done w/school, so it cannot come fast enough. I am doing a preceptorship the second 7 weeks, and I asked for L&D too. L&D is truly where my heart is, and it's where I hope to be hired. My other choices for my 1st job are high risk antepartum and postpartum.

    Good luck with your final semester!

    I'm with ya! (Except we have LDRP's so everything is done in the same room - no separate units; and small hospitals so everything r/t OB-GYN is in the same hallway/area. If someone is very very high risk they don't deliver here).
    Our class for the first half of the semester before preceptorship -from what I gather- is more med-surg with hospice added in there somewhere. I also have a senior capstone type of class (online).
    April 29th is the big day for me & I can't wait!!!!

    I am most excited for all the fun graduation stuff...senior banquet, pinning, and graduation. Although, I am excited about finally getting to do my critical care rotation. It's one of the areas I'm most interested in, but somehow I wound up having to take it last.

    I'm anxiously waiting to hear back about a job/scholarship that I interviewed for before Christmas. The suspense is killing me !

    Hopefully I'll be going into OR, PACU or Critical Care.I did my preceptorship in PACU and absolutely loved it.

    Have a good last semester everybody!

    I am also graduating in May-I have advanced med/surg and psych this semester. I'm a little nervous about psych to be honest but I keep telling myself, I only have 15 weeks left.

    Only 120 days left till pinning!!!!!!!!!!!! We have to do 220 hours for our preceptorship. Maybe because I am in a BSN program? Or is my school just weird? My brain has already graduated, so hopefully I'll make it through this semester. I think I am doing my preceptorship on a cardiac/tele floor. It's not set up yet and I have no clue what my schedule will be like. This is driving me crazy!!!

    Time went by so fast! I can't believe it's almost time to graduate. I got a preceptorship in pediatrics. The thought of having to bathe another adult was too much for me. I was getting burned out. I love kids. I'm looking forward to graduating and having a huge party.:hatparty:
    Oh and quiting my regular job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm on the home stretch too, but for some reason still feeling like I've got to walk barefoot over broken glass for 20 miles to get to that finish line...

    160 hours of precepting for us. I'll be doing general med-surg.
