only 3 days left of sem 1!

  1. All we have left in our LPN program is one day at one hosp orientating, CPR , and a day orienting at the 2nd hosp. Then we are out until Jan 2, when we come back doing clinicals! Yay. They say this part of the year will fly, so I am very glad to be starting it. I love learning and going to school, but I'm so anxious to be done and starting on my BSN.
    We only lost 2 students this entire time, and have a class of 30 now. Which is pretty good from what I have heard. I've only not finished first in 2 classes, but only missed it by 2 pts in each one, and we only have 2 classes left Med-Surg and maternal child, so it looks like I'll finish with academic excellence award! Not too bad for someone whos been sitting home for 12 years raising kids!

    Congratulations on finishing your first semester. I am in my second and was it ever a shock. I had straight A's in the first semester, then we started second with Med Surg and Maternal Child. I have a high B in Maternal Child and a C in Med Surg. It is tough, especially the cardiac unit, respiratory unit, and getting through tests that are 7 + chapters long! We have classes 2 days a week and do clinicals 2 days a week, so we have the added clinical homework, careplans, pathos, med cards, assessments etc. It's tough, but I know it will be worth it. The patient care is wonderful, and I really enjoy it. I wish you all the best
