    I am so happy the semester is almost over. I need a break (Don't we all.) Essarge 2004 may seem like a long time but it will be here before you know it. Everyone is like let's start thinking about graduation in my class and graduation for my class is May 2003. I already pre-registered for next spring. I am doing Peds, OB, and community clinicals. How about everyone else? I am debating if I should go ahead and do 18 credit hours or not next semester. I am going to talk to my advisor. I was thinking of going ahead and getting my nursing elective out of the way that way senior year I will not have the elective to worry about. I am pre-registered for 16 if do 18 I will be adding 1 class which is 2 credit hours and it is an online class. I think I would be able to handle it and it is a easy elective.

    Well got to go,

    Take care

    Hey peaceful,

    I have finally decided on what I am going to take spring, here is the list:

    ENC11O1 COMPOS 1

    This is seventeen credits. I know I am going to do well and with my friend janleb, I will be encouraged to get A's. I am looking forward to next semester and I am working real hard to keep my GPA high.

    I already pre-registered for spring semester also, that's what prompted me to write this thread. Next semester is a little tougher than this one, but hey! If I can do A&P I plus A&P II in 12 weeks last summer, I can do anything!! My schedule for next semester is 18 credits and includes

    Intro to nursing practice/lab
    Pathophysiology and Pharm
    Medical computations

    and last but not least....

    Global societies (very boring and allot of reading)

    They do offer a winterim schedule (5weeks) but I'm under strict orders from hubby to take that time off!! LOL!! I'll probably be happy for about a week and then start on the books for next semester to get a head start!! LOL!

    I am cheering right along with all of you. I found out some of the local hospitals will hiring nursing students as nurse interns after completing one semester. I can't hardly wait to get a hiring paying job with more responsiblity. That way I will be able to make the transition from the CNA scope of practice to the SN scope of practice. Although I am also going to look into working at a registery if that is going to pay more. The hospital that I currently work for has decided not to offer shift bonuses for working extra shifts during the busy holiday season. I have already decided not to work extra because it is already bad enough when I work short staff on my regular days. Sorry for so long it been awhile since I vented last.

    I also will have to agree. I am extatic that the semester is almost over. It went by extremely fast for me also. I graduate in May and can hardly wait. It will be so nice to have nursing school and the boards behind me. Good luck to everyone.

    Hey Peaceful2100,
    I noticed you are starting Ob/Peds next semester. I am also starting Ob/Peds in January. I hope we can get together and discuss sometimes.

    I am starting my fourth semester in Nursing clinicals in January, hopefully. We only have about 5 more weeks left in the Med/Surg clinicals. I can't wait........Stress level is increasing.

    Thanks, Its been very encouraging to read the boards. ...Thanks for allowing me to become a part of this....

    To SbRN2002 and others, sharing stories and helping each other through peds/OB will be great. Next semester will be a really critical semester for me because it will determine whether or not I truly want to do PEDS or OB. I have been working at a children's hospital and I love it but I have been working on the outpatient side not the inpatient. I also been thinking about OB but we will see next semester for sure. I will be doing Med Surg/ICU in Fall 2002. Half of my classmates will start Med Surg/ICU in Spring 2002 and then they will go to Peds/OB in fall. They had to split us up because they said that there are too many students and not enough clinical instructors. It is a shame too because some of my best study buddies and friends that I have made is not going to be in the same team with me but at least we will have one class together and that is nursing research.
