Needing a push!

Ok, I am on LS1 and half way there and starting to really feel burned out. Started in January and about to soon take test # 5 of 8. I am really starting to miss my life and wondering if I am ever going to make it through this. I log in and read the post trying to stay motivated but am in need of a bit of encouragement. Advice please...:uhoh3:

Break it down into chunks, if you need, but just keep going! It will all work out! I remember feeling the same way at the end of paramedic class - I wanted my life back, my personality back, a full night's sleep, wanted to NOT dream of pt's and... OMG! I just wanted a day without EMS in it, even though I love it. Just needed a break!

Pushing through is so worth it though! The joy of reaching your goal is worth it. Your life will be BETTER a year from now. Just keep going!

When do you take test #5?

Im right there with you. And on the same class. I may regret it, but I went ahead and scheduled the test yesterday to give myself a push to get it done haha

Good luck to you! You are ALMOST there!! I treat myself to a day off, or even a few hours to rejuvenate on a regular basis. Even if it once a month, it really helps me! Keep up the good work!! :up:

Good luck Friday! I know you are gonna do great!!!!!:yeah:

You can totally do it, and just think of the rewards once you get there. hang in, chin up, you have worked so hard to get where you are, you will be where you want to be in no time!:nurse:

Be glad you are not at the six year, six month mark with the CPNE, one nursing exam, and the FCCA looming in front of you, personal health and family issues in your life, and no way to come up with the money to schedule the CPNE to meet your deadline once you become eligible. Think of that scenario every time you start to get sluggish about your progress.

I so know how you feel. I enrolled in 2003 and graduated in 08. In between I had 2 babies and a full time job and a per diem job so I did not know what a life was like. If you live in a state where finishing is not time is of the essense I would take my time. Do a course and take a couple of weeks off. It is easy to lose your motivation but believe me I am so glad I stuck it out. I am a happy RN in a busy NICU and have had no issues with EC. So good luck. It will get better. :heartbeat

add information.

Now that's the way to do it! No better incentive than getting an A on one of the tests! Now get on a roll and keep on moving forward.

way to go...i'm still floundering on LS1 i think because i've taken 6 exams in the past 3.5mo i'm burnt out too...plus i had surgery and took a few weeks off to heal...now i need to get back on track and that A looks good to me! Taking this on on Saturday, LS2 Dec 13, and LS3 Dec 29! whew....=)

Well I have all my nursing classes to take and micro. So I was silly and thought I would take Micro first..boy I wish I would have saved it for the end. I am stuck with it. There is so much stuff I get overwelmed sometimes. I have been sitting on it for 4 months now. I wasn't planning on taking this long. Well keep up the good work girls!

Tips for Micro...I did it in 3 months maybe less. Micro Demystified and Microbiology cliff notes from Amazon.com. It puts it in a whole new perspective and makes if fun and easier to learn. That was money well spent. I got a B on that one.Remember, they will likely only want to make sure you know the most important things on the subject. Good Luck! :)
