    I'm going to be senior level this fall!!!!!!!!! I am so excited. This year has flown by. I hope next year does the same. Is anyone working this summer? We were told that we need to do something during the summer to get experience. I'm thinking of shadowing a nurse.

    I'm probably going to sound like an emotional wreck in my post but I AM still feeling emotional.
    I had my Med-Surg final yesterday. I've struggled with Med-Surg this entire semester. Grades started improving but not as high as I would have liked to bring my exam average up (absolutely no cushion the entire semester). My last exam I scored well but by this time I'd accepted that I would probably have to retake Med-Surg in the Spring of next year and would be a year behind in graduating. My classmates have been beside themselves with worry. I've spent more time in the presence of my instructor than I have with my husband. She told me, after the last exam, if I got a certain score on the final I would pass after all. Since the last exam I've studied my heart out but still didn't hold out much hope of passing. All I've heard from my instructor and my classmates is, "Get rid of that negative thinking! You can do it!"...this encouraged me, yes, but I also was feeling terrible because I so didn't want to let them all down when I didn't.
    Okay, so took the final yesterday. I had to make that certain score. Would you believe I GOT that certain score?? EXACTLY! Not a point over or under. My instructor was in tears, my classmates were in tears, inwardly I was in tears (not outwardly because I was too stunned, too disbelieving at the miracle of it). I had so much love displayed to me yesterday from my classmates and my instructor. Every single one of my classmates stuck around after the final to see how I had done...they were waiting for me in the lounge. When I walked in, after learning, they all cheered, hugged me....I suppose I really AM their "miracle child". So, yeah, I'm done with my first year of nursing.....passed by the veritable skin of my teeth (and I'd tell anyone that) but by a real miracle, I passed. When I walk into orientation next Monday, I'll be a second (final!) year student....I feel like I'm dreaming.

    Do you have classes this summer?

    No. I've thought about taking a dosage/calc class just to make me stronger in it but I DO have two dosage calc books and I suppose I COULD just practice and practice at home. Too, since I don't have student financial aid for summer courses (only for Fall and Spring) I don't think I could afford the tuition. My husband has been the only one working since I stopped so I could improve my Med-Surg grade...I go back to work tomorrow night. Everything else I've taken. Are you going to?

    I actually haven't worked since May 31, 2001. I started summer semester May third. It has gone pretty well. I'm quite stressed, but I think I'll make it through the next 12 weeks. Wish me luck! lol. :uhoh21:

    Have a great summer everyone!!
