Hello to all. I just wanted to keep you all updated. I started my CNA class on the 18th. So excited and loving it. It is very challenging. We have to read five chapters a day and do the workbook, which consists of about 4 pages front and back for each chapter. And we have a test everyday on what we learned the day before,plus two clinical skills. I am on total overload.
The work itself is not hard but to learn so much in a short period of time is driving me mad. :yldhdbng:
We had to do the chapter about the human body and that was rough. Only three people in the class passed the test. I was one, with the highest score (a 90). I am at the top of my class in every test ,my lowest score being a 90. I am so proud of myself and am pushing myself hard because I want to go to nursing school and I know its much harder than this, so if I can't do this, I can't do nursing school.
It just kills me when I see some of these student being so lazy about work and making so many excuses, and to know that these people with this careless attitude are going into this field. Students are ready to quit and some are crying and frustrated. Some don't like me much cause I'm doing so well and they judge me and say, "oh well she has time to study she has nothing else to do", or "she's young her brain is still fresh". HELLO!!!! I have two kids and a fiance and I have responcibilites too. I just make the time and am very determined to do well. Sigh!
I don't let them get to me though and I'm still striving hard. I miss you all so much and still squeeze in some time for this site. Was your course so condensed as well? Was\ IS it hard for you too? Thanks everyone and enjoy your memorial day weekend.
