I started my PN program on March 11th. I was very nervous, and sooooo anxious while waiting for classes to start. I was afraid I wasn't going to do well or that this wasn't going to be anything like I'd hoped. If you are currently waiting to start your program, you know what I mean...
! The pressure of not knowing, and only hoping for the best was really wearing me down!
Today is March 25th, it's 6:12am in my neck of the woods, and I've been up since 5am studying. I have a test on fluids and electrolytes, and the acid-base balance of the body. I also have a dosage calc. quiz. I feel ready for them both
! Right now I have a 96.7% in A&P and an 89.3% in Vocational Relations. I almost feel like I freaked out for nothing. This is totally my thing
! I've fallen into a pretty awesome study schedule that gives everything in my life it's own place. I've never been so happy! Everything is working out like I've hoped!!
Now I know that I'm just beginning, but I'm starting off on a good note. There are people in my class that have like 34% averages. I was pretty shocked by that! I feel challenged by the material, but not overwhelmed. I am enjoying what I'm learning, and so excited to learn what's next! I think if you can find a way to "fall in love" with your classes, you will retain the information well and it will really stick :redpinkhe. I've never been so grateful for this amazing body I have
. It works so hard (lol)!
I just thought I'd share something positive
. Many people made it seem like nursing school was going to be more treacherous than it really is. It's actually awesome! I feel fine! I love what I'm learning! So don't freak guys lol... Just enjoy the ride
