First Term passed with flying colors!

by efda2rn Member

My BSN program takes a slightly different approach than what seems to be the majority of schools. Instead of cramming it all in right from the get-go, our first term consists of a Health Promotions class, skills lab and clinical. Even with this (relatively) light load, there was still a shift needed in how I think and learn and it was difficult!

My facebook is filled with people from my cohort and I didn't want to make a big broadcast about my success in case some of my friends didn't do well. That being said, I've been DYING to shout it out from the rooftops! So, I came to AN ;).

My midterm grade was an A-. A good grade, yes, but I learned from my mistakes and I learned more about the testing style. I went into our final a lot more prepared and feeling much more confident. Even so, I could not believe what I saw when grades were posted. I achieved a 100 flipping percent on my final!!!!

Next term, the real fun starts with Chronic Care, Pathophysiology and Pharmacology. It is daunting, but I am currently feeling extremely buoyed up by my my positive experiences first term and I feel like I can take on the world!

I hope everyone has a fun and relaxing winter break!

Nice. Thats quite an achievement. I couldn't even get an A until second semester with maternity. Congrats!
