Hello everyone! I start nursing school
in an hour and I am so excited. Honestly, I have not been able to sleep for the last week. Last night I kept waking up and thinking that I was going to be late! lol.
I have put this off for way too long! I am 21, however, I graduated highschool when I was 17 and got married when I was 19 and I have been wasting my time taking miscellaneous college classes since then! My husband is so supportive and has told me that he will be happy to take over the brunt of the housework so I can go to school and excel.
My mom is also and LPN, and she graduated second in her class by .25 points so, we are having a contest to see who can graduate with a higher gpa. She is my inspiration. I have met alot of nurses while working and volunteering at various healthcare organizations and I have yet to find a nurse that has more compassion and better rapport with their patients. I'm getting all sappy now so I will go finish getting ready for school.
To all of those prospective LPN/LVN students: you can do it! Make your mind up and just go for it, it is a lot of hard work; but nothing will feel better than the feeling you get the morning before your first class! I already feel as if I have acheived something!
Take care everyone!
