December 2013 baby!!!
I can't decide if I am more excited or more terrified! I kinda wish we had gone straight through so I wouldn't have all this downtime. At least my externship will start soon so I can feel nurse-y again.
I'm thinking about laminating my flash cards so I can study in the shower.
Update: Passed my first semester with Bs, now halfway through my second semester with all As. Rocking it, and loving every minute of my clinicals! Much more satisfied with my abilities and competence level now!

Well, I used to read these posts and think, "wow really?" Now last semester I had 2 great instructors and one absolutely horrid. As far as people that say, "oh its okay because they make me a better nurse blah blah...." I don't agree at all. I have had instructors that are a little difficult and intimidating and one in particular that was very ahrd and I did learna ton from her and greatly appreciate her but I think there is a big difference between that and just down right nasty instructors like the op is talking about which I did have this past semester. SHe embarassed students regularly, harped on people so bad that there hands would be shaking and they would make stupid mistakes. Nothing was ever learned because we spent almost all of our time on the floor sitting in room listening to how wonderful she was. She would laugh and make fun of us at the nurses station and the nurses would just have these awful looks on their faces. It sucked, was a waste of time, and I learned absolutely nothing, except how much I appreciate all my other clinical instructors.
I have found that the worst infection control offenders are the MDs.
I have witnessed more nursing examples, but the truly shocking ones were committed by doctors.
Thank you everyone for the congrats!
I start school Monday at Rio Hondo College. I am so excited! Did the time go by fast for you.
What advice can you give me? I mean what do you wish someone would have told you that would have made school easier or at least given you a little insight on what you were in for?
Do I get to pick my schedule? Yes!
Sleep? What is that?! Lol.
Coffee, Mt Dew & Red Bull have become my new BFF's
