So I just finished my LVN-BSN program through the University of Phoenix. It was a really intense program with a lot of ATI, clinicals, papers, presentations, and projects. I wrapped up last week, but I feel like I'm preparing for the next class or the next set of drama to unfold. I'm over missing my classmates cause we had a solid cohort that stayed together for 3 years. I'm just spending time to get back in the swing of things and preparing to study for the nclex. In a sense I am still in shock that I completed school. I have had mini celebrations. I do have a hangup about the lost time with my family, but I had no control over that. I have tons of projects that I want to complete such as fixing my garage or cleaning gutters, but I can't because studying is the priority. I stay busy though cause I have full-time job and had it throughout the program. I'm sure I'll get over this feeling as the weeks and months go by.
