Final grades for Peds just posted. I finally got an A for a nursing class wooohoooo!!!! - I've made As on individual exams but always came up a bit short with pulling out an A for the course itself. I'm in 3rd semester and my school does not round so 1st semester I missed the A by 0.1!! Second semester by 0.5 - Finally hit the A mark for PEDS. Woooohooo! Interestingly, I thought this was the toughest course to date so I am really proud of myself right now!!

What a great thread! I just started my second year, but in retrospect I achieved so many personal milestones during my first year of nursing school.

As a post-bacc, I told myself that this time I would only focus on nursing school and not get involved in any extracurricular activities. Somehow, I end up running for student body president of undergraduates in the school of nursing and end up winning -I made a rap music video about nursing school with the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme" as my speech haha.

I also got awarded a tuition-reimbursement scholarship that is pretty much like a full ride and a guaranteed job after graduation (thank goodness, especially in this economy).

It's been a tremendous year and I'm just feeling super blessed for all the support from family and friends throughout my nursing endeavors.

I was one of 7 A's on our last Adult I exam, and I took it with an horrific migraine, and narcs.

I emailed a prof some paper work that my hubby helped create to help clinicals be a little easier and she loved it and asked permission to distribute to rest of class. Then she followed by saying that I did exceptional on my exam.

I got the grade back for my first care plan and my clinical instructor had nothing to say other than it was awesome and she wanted to use as her sample :)

I never understood why life was taking the path that it did (LVN first) but now it's paying off, I know what the hell I'm doing and it feels good :) I don't seek attention, actually I prefer to stay under the radar most days, but it is nice to have a little "atta-girl" given. Especially in nursing school - it's so *&^% draining, emotionally and physically!!

(I'm in a BSN program, not transitional, so I started over from the very basics!!)

I had to 'report off' to my instructor today after reviewing and assessing 2 different patients. I rocked it. :) It's good to have report practice.
