This semester has truly kicked my booty! The others were hard, but nothing, I mean nothing, compared to this. I've spent nearly 40-50 hrs a week, mind you, not including class or clinical, studying. I have a new found respect for what nurses know. My professor is excellent and she has taught us so much. I have missed so many outings and time together with my family, which was really hard, but I'm passing!! I feel like I haven't seen my children since August, but this has been well worth it and it's almost over. I'll be seeing the sun again after Thursday and I'm so happy! I feel so accomplished! Love you all.
