Please forgive me!

  1. please forgive me!

    i know that i have been absent for quite a while, but i have been incredibly busy! i work full-time & go to school 4 nights a week. i also teach one night a week at a local college, and i have also become active at a local church. to top everything off, due to all the stress, my migraines are back in full force.

    school is now over for the summer. yay!!! i ddn't do as well as i had hoped, but i did as best as i could considering. in my clinicals, i received 2 satisfactories (the only options were satisfactory or unsatisfactory). in dosage & calculations, my grade was an a. in foundations, my grade was a b. rumor has it, out of 60 people in our class, only about 30 of us will be going into the next semester.

    i can't wait to catch to catch up with everyone! i hope everyone had a great semester!

    I've been absent a bit too lurking periodically but not posting...and my plate is nowhere near as full as yours! Wow! Enjoy your summer and take a day off work (if possible) to just relax!!!

    Considering the fact that you were incredibly busy you did Really good. Also considering the fact that half your class may not make it that also says a lot in itself.

    You did your best and that is what matters the most. All any of us can do is do our best. Just keep the faith. For me the hardest part was my first semester and actually the second semester. This semester was the best semester I have ever had. So, it will get better. Maybe not easier but it will get better because you will have a better idea and nursing school won't be totally new to you.

    I am sorry to hear that your migraines are back in full force. I hope they get better and I hope you can get a little rest this summer.

    I think you did great this semester.... I have been wondering how you were doing, I knew you had a full load going on.... I also finished with a B, an 89 to be exact.. 92 starts A's, so I guess I will just have to be happy with a B...

    This first semester was very interesting to say the least.. The horror stories were no where near the truth.. Thank GOD But there were many very stressful days and nights... Nights where Id be laying in bed asking myself .."what was I thinking." Then I wake up go the clinicals and spend time with my pt. and get my answer..

    I am starting to work at our local hospital next week.. I will be working on an Orthopedic floor as a PCA.. (hospitals version of a CNA).. Will definately give me some great experiance.. Plus heck the pay isn't too bad.. $12.34 for evenings...

    Congrats on surviving semester 1!!! Only 3 more to go

    Have a good summer...

    Hello, I don't have a clue yet how hard its going to be in nursing school, but it sounds to me like you did great with all of the other stresses in your life, plus you made it, one of few it sounds like! Congratultions, at least you know your hard work will pay off in the end and you've definitly got the idea that you can do it!!!
