Congratulations Teon, and this is to your admission :beercuphe .
Congratulations and good luck!!!!
Just finishing my first year, final tomorrow. As for advice, the greatest advice I received this year is don't give up. If your school is like mine there is a reason that you got in, you are an excellent candidate. Getting in is hard, staying in is harder; not that the academics will get you, the sheer amount of work can be overwhelming. Care Plans
, Functional Health Patterns, Process Recordings, paperwork, paperwork, paperwork. Oh yeah then there is your first CODE BROWN (don't worry it usually isn't life threatening....lol). Make sure you have a support system, let those in your life know that this is going to be a lot of work and with their help you will have a wonderful career. Try to keep things balanced and in perspective, and if you are like me and always were an A student in college, prepare to maybe not always get the A. Nursing is very objectively subjective and though there are many answers there is only one right answer, you'll do great if you remember to take care of yourself and ask for help when you need it.
I do recommend a book for you to read over the summer "How to live through Nursing School and maybe learn to love it", it is an easy read and gave me a lot of insight into what I was to expect over the course of the next two years.
Again Good Luck
