I am 51 yo senior in nursing school, and believe me we are all going through it, OK, my three grown children 31, 29, 27, all live at home and they give me nothing but drama, and it seems everytime a semester starts it gets worse, what can I say, the 29 yo got engaged last xmas, I asked one thing don't get married till I finish school, I have no money, clean myself out to do nursing school (after all I put all 3 of them through school by myself) and they do help with the bills, rent etc. But anyway I graduate May 29, so her idea of waiting is to get married June 12th, I meant like sept or oct, let me pass NCLEX, start working etc. Now I am getting drama about not helping her with the endless plans for the big wedding, what can I say I told her I would not be available, but she sits with the puss on and the tears welling up, and lays all sort of guilt on me. Sunday she went for hair and make-up trial (3rd time) and was mad because I couldn't go, clinical monday with a very high acuity client in ICU, needed to fill out all my pre clinical forms, pharm test tuesday, and I have a 5 page journal entry due wednesday, plus reading and a peds care plan due thursday, is she kidding? go waste 4 hours watching her get her hair and make up done. But you know what my attitude is tough, this is my future and I am doing this, this is my main focus.

Ok so I have 3 weeks to go until I graduate. I made it. Life is good. I put a new roof on my house, fixed a foundation crack, my dog Brady has died. I made it. Now for the real world. If I can do it and survive anyone can.

I can't believe it. I counted my classes today, and I only have THREE lectures left. I am astounded. I can't say it hasn't been a struggle, but worth it. I've been so lucky to have a very supportive hubby and no kids, I have the utmost respect for those of you with children, big or little... :bowingpur

Best of luck to all the other May '09 grads out there. Here's to a strong finish (and see you on the "first year in nursing" page)
