Well I finally got my acceptance letter to start school in September of this year. All that stress went away and then all of a sudden the realization of all the new things to be stressed about hit me. I am working hard on my Human AP. I feel like I am not prepared enough. I am also researching and researching stethoscopes, shoes, watches, etc. I am a full blown nursing nerd :) I won a Littmann Master Classic II on ebay for $60 shipped! I was so excited. What are you guys doing to prepare and have any of you narrowed down what shoes, stethoscope, watch, etc. you want?
