UPDATE time!!!! You guys are funny, I loved reading over some of these comments! It's almost over, only one more hurdle (NCLEX) which I am doing early July. Starting a job in the LTC facility where I've worked for a year and a half. And continuing school in the Fall towards my BSN.
In retrospect, all of the things I said were true, at least for me, for two years. Especially that the world doesn't stop turning while you are trudging through nursing school. My mother's health began to fail, three of my dogs passed away, and to be perfectly honest, when I look back on the nursing school journey and factor in those outside events, I don't even know how I did it. But if I could do it at my extremely advanced age with neurons as dry as Ghandi's sandals, and all these emotional events, then I am quite sure all of you can do it too. Wish you the best successes in life.
