My intentions with this thread is to share MY journey as a LPN student. Even though we are either in NS, graduated or figuring out if this is for them, we can relate to one another but at the end of the day..Our journey is our own. So while MY experience may not be a common one I hope to make another student less nervous or just have an idea of what to expect in the life of an LPN student...
I will be attending Monmouth County Vocational School on Sept 5, 2012. So obviously our official day has yet to begin. However, we had a two day orientation in July. Although we didn't receive any cookies or pizza (saw this in another thread lol) we received our basics such as our calendar, book list, briefing about the school and what to expect etc etc..We also dove right in and started studying Chapter 1 from our A&P on our first day and we had a quiz on it on our second day of orientation. I passed with an 82. I would have liked to have a better grade but it's not the end of the world, it's passing.
We received a lot of reading for the remainder of the summer. And we will be welcomed back with 2 tests and 2 quizzes. And a test the following day. I have of course been studying. I want to put 110% into this course. While I would love to enjoy my summer I have been trying to get myself into a routine so that I am not completely out of my element when I start school...Going to bed earlier, waking up a tad earlier..Eating healthier and starting to exercise more.
This is it for now..I will keep those who are interested posted. I don't know how exciting my posts will be lol but it's also a good way for me to also sit and enjoy school and be able to look back and read this..
Good luck to all those starting school as well...Here's to a year we will never forget
