    Starting nursing school this week. I'm taking Professional Nursing 1 (Health Assessment), Professional Nursing 1 Lab and Psychosocial Nursing.
    I feel relatively good all things considered. But hope that once classes start my nervous stomach will calm down.

    Last semester started today, and I'm so ready to graduate already! I feel tired of nursing school. I'm taking community health nursing, trauma/ER nursing, leadership/management, and senior synthesis (capstone).

    I started today as well, just got back home about an hour ago. We had Med/Surg theory class today.

    First semester. We have Med/Surg, Psych/Mental Health, Concepts, and Physical Assessment. I have my first clinical (orientation) tomorrow! I'm kinda nervous about that!

    Well, I am going back for my BSN this semester and I have never dreaded school so much! I have absolutely no desire to go back, but I know if I don't do it now, I won't go back anytime soon! I am taking Nursing Research, Community Based Nursing, and Pathophysiology. Not very exciting! Good Luck to everyone with school!

    Tomorrow is the big day and I'll have to be up and out of the house early which will be quite interesting! Fall semester is fundamentals and pharmacology/physiology, but we get seven weeks in lab before we start clinicals - thankfully. Good luck to everyone and best wishes!

    I started back today. This semester I have:

    Nursing II - lecture, lab and clincals
    Pharm II - lecture and lab
    Childbearing Family - lecture and clincals/labs
    Mental Health - lecture and lab
    Developmental Psychology - online but the teacher looks to be very persnickity and demanding/anal.....fun wow....

    They've started us off with a bang. Already homework, drug cards to be made and memorized by Friday, pharm stuff, reading, and a paper due in two days for dev psych. and clinicals already starting Thursday which kind of shocked us all!

    I feel like making a paper chain with the number of days I have left (lots) and hanging it from my ceiling - just to get the satisfaction of tearing another one off each evening.

    We have a few new-to-teaching instructors this year - not sure how thats all gonna go....

    ETA: OH! A piece of good news! They lowered our grading scale standards. Now all we have to get for an A is a 90%
    Which is much easier than a 95% they required last semester.
    I missed all "A's" by a teeny-tiny bit last semester and sooo wish this was a retroactive thing! LOL But I'm pleased its changed for this semester.
