To the new graduates and those about to graduate.....

I've already started my next semester in my RN to BSN program and am going to be a bit busy to post often. So I'll post once to everyone! :chuckle

Just want to say in one post to all those who are graduating the next weeks, or are already done.....CONGRATULATIONS! It's such a wonderful feeling to be done and to be finally moving on.

Don't sweat the NCLEX, you made it this far and you'll make it through NCLEX. (Typically in a few months we'll see a lot of posts about freakin' out about NCLEX. All I can say is don't sweat the number of questions. Remember the number of questions is only the number of questions.)

Good luck to all of you in your careers, best wishes to those moving on to more schooling after this.

I second that Tweety. I wish all new grads well! Good luck, that first year of nursing is a real ride, but you will make out ok if you find some good mentors and act like sponges------eyes, ears, nose wide open! Best wishes to all new grads.

Thanks Tweety and Deb,

Graduation is tomorrow. I still feel stressed though. Getting the house clean because we have a houseload of people coming tonight so that has a lot to do with it. I WANTED to go to the mall to pick myself up a new outfit but I don't see that happening. Thanks again!

Thanks everyone! It still hasn't sunken in yet. I'm done! Finished the last shift of my mentorship @7:30 pm. I still can't believe I don't have to be anywhere on Monday for the first time in years. Maybe when the weekend is over, it will sink in. For now, I still feel like I'm in school.
