Who's getting EXCITED!!?? - Page 3Register Today!
- Jul 29, '12 by wbthomasI start on the 23rd of August. It seems like time is standing still and I can't wait for it to begin! I had to have all the CPR and shots done just to apply so all I get to do is sit and wait (and slowly go insane)!
- Jul 29, '12 by RNintraining72Quote from wbthomasI am so with you! I have a two day orientation on Aug. 15th and 16th But classes don't start until Aug 27th!I start on the 23rd of August. It seems like time is standing still and I can't wait for it to begin! I had to have all the CPR and shots done just to apply so all I get to do is sit and wait (and slowly go insane)!
It seems like the days are just creeping by!! I've never wanted summer to be over so fast!!
- Jul 29, '12 by sarahrnayAhh, I remember the initial excitement of my freshman year of nursing school. Enjoy it while it lasts! I'm kidding (mostly). Everyone has their own experience with nursing school. Some of us (and I include myself in this group) have found the novelty to wear off, and we're in the suicidal phase of starting our sophomore (and final if you're an ADN like me) year, and wonder if we can really trudge through the next 10 months.
Best of luck!
- Jul 29, '12 by MeganDMI, like a lot of you, am still getting the final touches on everything. I am past the point of being excited. For me that was the day I got my acceptance letter!!!! ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! Best present ever!!!!!!! Now I am more goal driven, vaccines, CPR, drug screen etc. etc. I imagine the butterflies of excitement will return the night of August 20th because my first day of class is the 21st. I'm so proud for all of you who made it!!!!!! Congratulations
- Jul 29, '12 by fctxsThe hard part is still to come you have to know what you are doing and be able to keep up your grades to stay in the program. I am going into my 3rd semester and it is not easy. I have made A's in the 3 nursing classes I have taken. I study 8 to 10 hours a day so be ready...and good luck
- Jul 29, '12 by Jmtagg623I'm super excited, also! But I have to wait until January to start my core classes. I found out I was accepted to my BSN program over a month ago and have already done my titers, ppd tests, CPR class, and ordered my book and scrubs for the Care Partner (similar to CNA) class I'm required to take this Fall. I'm just ready for 2013 to get here so I can start my program and a few months later my hubby will come home from deployment! I'm just overloaded with excitement and impatience! Haha.
- Jul 29, '12 by hcowartThat first test is always bad because it is a whole new way of testing. Keep your head up because it will be worth it. Be prepared to make sacrifices with family and friends. Ill finish my second semester this next week. Best of luck.
- Jul 29, '12 by atchdeeI start on Aug 20, and I can not wait. I have put off going for 8 years, and now there are only 3 weeks left. Physical is done, CPR is renewed, stethoscope and supplies will be ordered today, and my uniform tomorrow. Orientation is on the 9th, and I am really looking forward to meeting my classmates and getting my books. The last bit to take care of is health insurance. :uhoh21:
It occurred to me the other day, that after almost a decade of working full time, I will once again be a full time student and pretty much dependent on my fiance and student loans. I felt a sense of panic that I have not felt in awhile. My job will be to go to school, do well, study, and make our sacrifices for the next two years worth it. I have gotten some review materials for math and medical terminology, and plan on reviewing some A&P. I am anxious to get this started!
- Jul 29, '12 by meghenIt is nice to see your excitement. I am older and more cynical. Here is how I feel about nursing school starting on August 15:
1. Broke. (Didn't realize all the costs, geez. This could be worse, I am sure, I did get some financial aid, but how much stuff does one nursing student need)
2. Annoyed. (I have no idea what to expect)
3. Sore (you should see the bruises from all the pokes)
4. Scared to death.
Let the fun begin!
- Jul 29, '12 by sarahrnayAh, a kindred spirit. That's exactly how I feel about nursing school.
I'm past excited and into the "kill-me-now-please-it's-never-going-to-end" phase. I have no money, I'm always exhausted, I get tired of being scrutinized, my life is nonexistent, I don't see anyone except my nursing instructors/peers... and it's just overall a pain in the ass.
