Just had my pinning ceremony today!

Students LPN/LVN Students


Hey guys I'm graduated for real! it was kind of sad because everyone had their families come to congratulate them for their success but I didn't have any family come for me. After the ceremony, everyone started hugging and taking pictures and all, but I just kind of had to sneak out of there quickly cause I just felt out of place. I gave a few fellow students big hugs and wished them good luck and took off. I have lots of buddies but I didn't tell anyone about my graduation because of my personality that makes me hate being put on the spot. It does feel great to be done though. I went to the beach right after the ceremony and relaxed as long as possible for the first time this whole summer. It was a great feeling. Now, all I have left to do is to study for the boards and pass!

LanePN, are you currently working somewhere that you would want to continue working at after you take your boards?

No, but I am thinking of doing long term care because the pay is better than hospital here in North Carolina, but i will probably to per diem at hospital to keep my assessment skills. planning on doing LPN to RN program next August :nurse:
