    Can I relate ! I am graduating in May and the closer the end comes the longer it feels like its taking. What keeps me motivated is looking around me in class and at clinicl. What I see are 5 other students who developed senioritis just like me and failed, they are now repeating the course. This has been a great motivator for me. All of my hard work is worth pushing myself for a few more weeks.- I hope this helps. Good luck and congrats on reaching the end. Maria.

    Well I graduate April 22 and what keeps me going is the fact that next week I'm going shoppign with my fellow nursing students for our graduation dresses, having a massage the day before graduation and started tanning to relax. I dont know about yall, but I've been rough through nursing school and it's nice to get back to being a female that cared about her looks. Might sound alittle superficial, but with a husband and 3 year old, "me" time gets pushed to the back, so this is a great way to end my senior year.
    Go have a relaxing day and treat yourself, cause YOU"VE earned IT.
    Take care and best wishes,

    I'm finding it hard to care about my grades at this point... Sadly, all I want to do is pass my classes. I graduate May 13th, and although I know it will come quickly, it seems like its forever away. I think my problem is that I've already got a job squared away, so i feel like i don't have to impress anyone. I just can't wait until it's all over!!!!!!!!! :roll

    I am in the same boat as ya'll!! I am so sick of studying, paperwork, instructors................. Definately ready to get to May 13th and get on with it . My kids have kept me motivated these last few weeks as well as the thought that I do NOT want to have to ever do this again!! I keep telling myself "Just a little bit longer, hold on, you will be there soon!".

    We need to all hang on for just a bit longer :wink2: then we can

    Good Luck to everyone--we will survive!!

    The only way I can keep myself at all motivated to go to school every day ( i graduate in May) is to not think about it. I have a job lined up already, so I am just plunking along, trying not to think AT ALL about graduating.

    It doesn't really work.

    I look at my signature line. Look-just today, I have only 8 days of class/clinical left! My final is in 3 weeks! Although it FEELS like forever, just seeing it written down that it is happening soooo soon, that helps.
