I had 3 nursing exams last week - 2 in one day, and the third a day after. I made an 81, 83 and an 89! I was so stressed and did NOT know how to study for 3 huge exams all so close together, so I think I did pretty well :)

I got a super ego boost from my CI today. We had to do an ungraded process recording (therapeutic communication exercise) and she showed it to the third-semester students (I'm in first) as an example of how to do the assignment. I don't even know what I did that was so fabulous, but yay me.

I got a 91 on my 2nd Therapeutics Exam...I wanted an A (93%), but will be happy for the 91 seeing as though we don't get study guides!! AND I had a GREAT first clinical day!

I just like contributing to this thread:

Today in clinical, I hung my first IV med and drained 4 JP drains. I also had to take frequent vitals on one of my patients who was getting a blood transfusion. I felt even better during the day when my instructor, who isn't easy to please, told me that I was quiet, but I think. All the procedures I did went smooth as cream. Made me beam inside.

D/Ced two hemovacs and two q-balls. Not too bad, it was just my first time. I almost got the chance to take out staples, but the patient had to be pre-medicated first and it was around the time I had to get off the floor. Oh well, next time.

Inserted my first foley catheter in clinical today! :yeah:

Granted, it was on a male, but I did it right the first time, never broke my sterile field, and my clinical instructor said I did well. :clown:

It's little moments like this that reassure me that I CAN make it through this crazy nursing program and someday (soon) be a great nurse!

Pretty certain I got a 98 or 100% on today's psych pharm test. Which blows my mind. Very proud of myself!

This is fun and I wish I'd seen it sooner! I guess for me, I'm burning out and thus not putting a whole lot of outside of school effort, but I'm pulling a B so far. Only two more semesters to go.

I'm a new grad and I'm still getting out of bed in the morning to face another day. MAJOR accomplishment for a new grad.

"Great job. I knew you would be up for the challenge in learning this one. Very thorough."
