    I have a special prayer that I always say on the bus on my way to clinical. I say: God, please help me to be the best nursing student that I can be today. Please help me to help my patients, my fellow students, the nurses, the aides, the doctors, and my clinical instructor. Amen.Also, during the actual clinicals I sing that song from the karate kid, "you're the best around"

    No one ever said it would be easy, they said it would be worth it.

    "Drink life as it comes , straight. No chaser". And. "No day but today" oh, and "this too shall pass", but I apply it to all aspects. The good things will pass and the bad things will pass. :-).

    When my husband graduated from Infantry training, the general who spoke at the ceremony said this:

    "This is the life you chose."
    He reminded them that they would all deploy within a year, and would many times wonder why they had to work so hard and suffer so much and be away from their families. He wasn't wrong. But my husband and I would remind each other of that phrase and move past the complaints. After all, we'd chosen it.

    This has helped me so many times. Whatever happens, I have a choice about the outcome. When I wonder why my job is going crappy or why school is so hard...I just remind myself that I am responsible for it, not someone else. And I am responsible for doing something about it.
