You know, it's amazing to look back and see exactly how fast and furious one year can be in one's life, particularly when that year happens to involve the cycle of events that follow acceptance into a nursing program. My classmates and I are counting down the days until our pinning and rejoiced when this just a few days ago we fell below 100 days left in class.
By far, this has been the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life, as I simulatenously work fulltime, juggle a turbulent family life - complete with a wife who has been having a tremendous amount of health problems, and go to school to have 3-5 tests per week on average. For me, this year has taught me an overwhelming amount of humility and in my darkest hours even brought me to a higher level of spiritual awareness I didn't know existed.
I find it strange how all of this resulted from an application to nursing school
. I'm thankful each and every day I did.
To all of my fellow LPN/LVN students out there, I hope your experience has been rewarding. And if it doesn't seem like it now, just remember to look back a year from now and think about it again.
