The End is Near!!

I had intended this blog to chronicle my experiences in nursing school...that hasn't happened!  My posts are few and far between.  It's update time.  I am almost done.  I graduate in 6 weeks, 2 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes and 30 seconds (29, 28, 27, 26...)!

As of this am I have one presentation, one exam, two days of med/surg clinical, one reflection paper, and 100 hours of capstone to go.  That is all!  Then of course I must pass the NCLEX.

Nursing School

A pictorial review of my first and half-way through my second semesters of nursing school.
what my desk looked like on the first day of classes

My real study space!
A sample of textbooks for nursing school...my stack is actually bigger!
What happens in study group stays in study group
What I learned in long term care.

Acute care...C. diff.  Enough said.
Me in OB/Women's Health clinical.

I know, A stereotype...it's true for the nurse on the PEDS unit I am on now though.

Psych in 4 weeks...will this be my unit preceptor?

Official nursing Dx for my cohort.

One Month Down...

Eleven to go!!

Quick and dirty update....

I made it to North East USA, cats and partner made it, too. Got some loans. Found a place to live within easy walking distance of medical center and school of nursing. School is CRAZY...I won't say its hard academically, so far...but dear God, the time commitment! Just finished week four and it was such a nice, relaxing week...ummm, yeah...really that just means we had no exams this past week. Next week however, we have THREE!!!! The third pathopharm exam, second assessment exam, and the CNET. YAY...or something!
