Ok- I'll bite. We took our first CPA yesterday and I made a 93%. That is BARELY an A on our grading scale, but still yet it is an A. AND it's the ONLY A in the CLASS!!!!:D

I realize I have alot of work ahead of me, but that was sure a confidence booster!

Oh what I would do for a 93% to be an A, our grading scale is 5pt. grading scale. 95% and over is an A.....blah! Minimum passing grade is 80%.

Regardless, CONTRATULATIONS! Thats a difficult thing to pull off!

I caught a renal bruit durring a head to toe assessment that the RN missed and prevented a guy from going into respiratory failure durring my last clinical!!! Not to mention the doctor asked what meds I thought the PT should get and I said furosemide and hydralazine to which he said I should go to med school!!! (No thank you to the med school....I have a hard enough time keeping up with the hours the nursing program requires....)

I had the instructor from hell (instructors, don't act like you don't know who you are...lol) discuss my clinical midterm evaluations and tell me I was a delight and that she trusts me and looks forward to working with me as a colleague. She blasts everyone so I was ready for something harsh and it never came.

It's funny because as I consider myself in relation to my peers I don't think much of abilities or my knowledge. This is a huge field with so much to learn and I feel as if all I've done so far is understand how much I don't know.

I have less than 30 days left in the semester, and if I do well on my finals, I should graduate my BSN program with a 4.0 :)

Besides my husband there are not many people who I can "toot my horn" to so this is a treat :) Of course my most rewarding accomplishments so far has been my four wonderful/smart/caring children :) My school accomplishments have been returning to school at age 37 and maintaining a 4.0 every semester for the last two years! I've had several instructors ask me for my permission to use my essays in future classes as teaching tools. I was the only student in speech class that was asked to video tape my presentation so it could be used in future classes. I know that getting straight A's won't matter much after graduation, and that there is a huge probablitly that I won't be able to keep all A's throughout the nursing program...but for now I'm very proud of myself :) Thanks for starting this thread, like I said, I don't have anyone besides my husband to share my accomplishments with...both my parents have passed, my only sibling rarely speaks to me, and my in-laws are more interested in their granddaughter who is in medical school; so my accomplishments get over-shadowed by hers. Thanks again, I needed this!!

I am just beginning my nursing school journey, but I'm going to pat myself on the back all the same. 5 years ago, I didn't think I'd ever do anything besides work in a factory or as an underpaid waitress. After all, as a single mom of 3 kids, it's not so easy getting a restart in life. I went back to school a year and a half ago with the intention of just getting my LPN, but halfway through my first semester at the community college, my A & P 1 instructor told me that I should work on my prereqs for the BSN program at the university an hour away. She said I was smart enough to go big (no one had ever really encouraged me like that before), so I took her advice and took Chemistry and College Algebra along with all the rest of the required classes...and graduated with a 4.0 in 17 straight classes for my transfer degree and the Microbiology Departmental award. I applied to the university with high hopes and a stomach full of nerves, jumped through all the hoops....And they accepted me!!!!!! Who would've thought? I wouldn't have. I will be sending my old professor a big thank you card and bouquet of flowers upon my completion of my BSN from ASU. I'm just stoked I made it in. Hard work does pay off. I know the next few years will be a huge challenge, but I can do it!
