End-Stage Senioritis!

  1. I've got it bad! So does the rest of my cohort. We are graduating in May and everyone looks like a zombie, only with less energy. With application season coming up, how are the other soon-to-be-graduates coping with senioritis?

    Oh I had it bad. It started in January and by finals I just could not study anymore. We graduate in May also, but our finals were Tuesday and the rest of the time is spent in our preceptorship. I don't think that I could sit through another lecture!

    Ugh, I hear you! We have finals on the 4th, then preceptorship. We're all draggin butt around here! I haven't started applying anywhere because I am moving as soon as I graduate and can't go there to interview till then.

    Wish I had some advice, but I don't. I don't think I can read one more assignment, complete one more online tutorial - ugh. A classmate & I were just talking about how we all look "fluffy" because we've all spent so much time on our behinds studying, and taken in so many calories with stress-eating. (Chocolate chips, anyone?)

    I'm taking the night off to watch The Walking Dead with my husband. (And no, I don't mean I'm going to stalk my classmates. I'm actually watching the program on AMC.)

    less than two months away and I'm in full zombie mode. many of us in our program wish we could just focus on capstone since we took and passed our exit exam earlier this month, but no, alas we have busy work and projects galore, plus weekly competencies to write for clinicals. add job applications, writing and rewriting resumes and cover letters, and god forbid any outside life. I just want to focus on transitioning into a career, not wrap up the semester making a ******* poster. BUT it will all be over soon.

    As a clarification, your cohort do not have senioritis-- that would be an inflammation, right? What you have is seniorosis, the condition characteristic of being a senior.

    It's bad. It's been bad all year starting back in Sept. when I seriously thought about quitting, but I'm still here, trucking along, and I really want to be a psych nurse, so I'm putting up with all of the crap I don't care about to meet the end goal. Smile and nod, and act like you have some life in you. LOL

    Yes!! I graduate in April and only have two papers left haven't started them yet. My classmates and I are also trying to take better care ourselves since the dark bags under our eyes wont help us in job interviews. We are almost there

    Good luck to you all graduating soon! 4 months to go for my class. Luckily, my last semester falls in summer so the length is shorter, but I know the work load is going to be cruel!
