I Did It!

  1. I just had to share. For the first time in my life, I have made straight A's. I was taking...

    Nursing Fundamentals
    Medical Terminology

    I am so proud of myself and just want to shout it from the rooftops. I only have you and my family to tell, since I don't want to share with those at school, we are very competitive and I don't want to seem as if I am bragging.

    So anyway, I am floating on a cloud. Thanks for letting me share.

    Congrats !
    I would share , especially if asked. I believe if I have worked very hard, made the necessary sacrifices to have the time for studying, etc., then I have EARNED those grades.

    Your real friends/classmates at school will be happy for you.
    And be happy to share in your joy, will want to congratulate you.
    One persons' success does not diminish anothers' achievements.

    It also gives you the opportunity to distinguish yourself from
    those who are not as committed to scholarship and academic
    achievement as you are.

    It also gives you the opportunity to establish yourself as a leader. In nursing, on every unit, there are those who are willing to assume
    responsibility and provide leadership.

    Now is a good time to practice your leadership skills.
    (A good topic to research on the net.)
    You will be someone's role model for sure, whether you are
    aware of it or not.

    Again, congratulations, you deserve it and have earned it.

    Congrats to you
    Does your school have a Deans list if they do you have made that and it is published and printed in our small newspapers so lots of people will see it

    Hey, good for you!
    I did that last spring and when I saw my grades I just stood and bawled! I always felt too dumb to do school! I was wrong!
    Like you, I usually feel like keeping my grades to myself... I don't want to be too competitive, but nursing school is!
    So, brag here! Woohoo!!!
