You all will make it. Like Jen be well prepared to be emotionally tested. If you have a significant other, you should probably prewarn him of the stress and temporary psychosis that you will be going through! I can remember the end of my first semester we had to do a physical assessment on one of the other students, in front of the teachers, explaining as we went everything we were looking for and what was WNL from head to toe. It was also finals week, so I focused mainly on studying those instead of every testing every cranial nerve. Much less to say it was the night before the demonstrated assessment, and I was ready to be admitted! My boy-friend (now my husband, God bless him!) was over at my dorm, I WAS A MESS!! I was trying to practice this assessment on him, and speak out loud as I would in front of the teachers. He hung his head and made me feel so stupid...I snapped. Screamed at him hit him a few times, and threw his shoes out in the hall way and told him to GET OUT!! I was trippin' My dorm-mates came running down the hall, I was crying, not thinking I would ever make it through that last day of my first semester. I still say, one more day and I would have been an inpatient, but I made it, and did very well. As all the rest of you, who really want it, will too.
