    Hi everyone!

    Just thought I'd give an update now since first semester is done and over!

    Boy has it been quite a roller coaster. It was definitely the most stressful, anxiety-provoking, and highest tension situation that I have ever been in. The amount of time and dedication it took to get to the end is absolutely insane, but it was definitely worth it! I really gave it my all and did the best that I could. I loved clinical (once I got over some of those jitters!), really pushed through my courses and did really well! There were definitely plenty of times where I felt like I couldn't keep going, but I just took a deep breath and kept going. You truly do have to take nursing school day-by-day, or you won't make it. I feel like I could write a book on all of the experiences I had this semester. I feel like I really understand the information and that I made the right career choice! I don't know, I just feel so happy that I was able to make it to the end of the semester!

    I'm going to post in a bit about my next semester classes and ask for some suggestions for preparation/tips now since I undersatnd what nursing school is all about. Thank you again to everyone who helped give me some suggestions and tips for my first semester!
