OK, so I could not begin to explain the issues in my life right now! I won't even spend time on yapping about that! Basically, so much has went on. This summer semester is 8 weeks, instead of our usual 15-week semesters. I was Mighty Mindy and decided I could take on Med/Surg I & II, as well as both of their clinical portions as well, in this 8-week period, along with everything else on my plate. I have bombed the first two exams in Med/Surg I and I now have a 62 average. Clinical was adding stress that I could not describe, along with my current financial situation...let me just say, last week...I was close to snapping in half and it was going to be far from pretty...I cried my eyeballs out enough for 5 people last week.
Basically, I knew I wanted to drop clinical two weeks ago, after I noticed how unwell it was mixing with my studies for theory. This isn't just something I want to zip through in four weeks at a time, you know? I feel this is information I really need to focus on and retain. SO, I knew I wanted to drop clinical, but I also knew that meant half of my Pell refund would be going with that decision as well. I am having car issues and just many financial difficulties...but, I decide I need to drop clinical anyway, or I was going to have many more problems on my hand in the coming weeks. The day I decide I am going to officially drop clinical, I get a call from a home health care business that I put in an application for well over a month ago for a CNA. I have an interview tomorrow.
I am still not sure if I am regretting this decision or not...but this will be my first healthcare job and I feel this is an important part of my career as well, you know? I don't want to pass it up. I must say I really do hate getting one to two semesters behind in my LPN program as well. Maybe this is all a blessing. Only time will tell! I just had to rant a little bit. Carry on!
