Realization didn't hit until about an hour ago at 2am, that I'm officially back in Nursing school. I am currently attending a bridge program at Academy for Nursing in West Palm Beach, FL. It has been my experience with this school previously, that they OVER prepare you (I know ... you can never be OVER prepared for nursing but they did!). I stared at the syllabus of all the Med/Surg and Pharm Chapters to remember for our 1st exam tomorrow,for a good 10 minutes and thought to myself, I'm sure my Cortisol levels have increased, BP has elevated and my respirations are becoming shallow and my hair is going to look like hell tomorrow.
So my question to you RN, BSN, MSN, FNP, ARNP, CRNA and every other titled person from the RN food chain is.
How did you do it? Mentally? Physically? Spiritually? ..survive this?
Any guiding words or motivational quotes would be "PERFECT!" So that I can relay the message to my classmates and shine a little light.
I appreciate your time reading this as procrastination for studying is lurking behind me. LOL!
