limping to the finish line...

  1. Am I the only senoir who feels completely exhausted and beat up? I grad in Dec and hope I make it the next two weeks...I am just miserable. :uhoh21: I have TONS of stuff to do in the next two weeks including finals, a quiz, a huge paper, ATI. Ugh. I just need to gripe!

    Hopefully I'll be happy at the actual pinning ceremony?

    I just went through and finished that battle. I wrote my last paper this past week and I finished preceptorship the 14th, but I was totally where you are now.

    I just have one more final and a poster presentation and I am done.

    Just know all this will pass.

    Pinning is the 13th and you bet I will be happy!

    Raising my hand.

    Today was the last " real" day of clinical..and I was on an observation day anyway so it was reallllllly slow.

    Next week we have 2 lectures, 2 quizzes, a Health Fair we have to present at, and the last 1/2 day of clinical where a last paper is due.

    The following Monday is the final. Tues is exit ATI. Then we are FINALLY done. Gheesh it seems like it will never end.

    Hang in there, all of you. I remember when you were cheering about getting into nursing school. Now you are done!! How proud you must be. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Allthings bright, just do 'first things first'. Get things done in order, one by one by one.

    A big hand to every one of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :biere:

    Sounds more like you're "flinging" yourself across the finish line.... That's how is in any race! You cross the line exhausted, then look back at the path you just traveled, exhausted but extemely proud of what you've spent sweat, blood, tears, and a few gray hairs (maybe an ulcer) to attain. Congratulations!!!
