    Definitely a handwritten thank you card of some sort for sure. Beyond that, it's whatever you know they would appreciate. In the past, I have pulled together with other clinical group members to...

  9. Dilemma: miss class before exam due to illness?

  16. Everyone:How do you keep yourself motivated when you just want to give up?
    Keep going! :) I just tell myself that even though I don't *feel* like it right now, there's no reason I *can't* study. (Except for being distracted by AN on occasion, hahahaha.) Take 10 minutes and...

  20. What sacrifices have you made for your nursing education?
    Honestly, haven't sacrificed that much. Maybe some independence - can't afford to live on my own during school, so I moved in with my mom - but she's awesome to me, so that's OK. I gave up the...

    I'm a schmuck too. :) Decent money and alternatives to the 9-5 M-F schedule are pretty good motivators. I am also a health geek (though you'd never guess it from my eating habits, haha), so purely...
