Test Day

I finished taking the exam.  This time I took it slowly.  I did not rush.  I double checked some answers and made sure my scan-tron had all the bubbles correctly filled in.  I studied for almost 2 weeks & when I turned in my exam I was not confident.  CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!? I figured after 2 weeks I would have some sort of idea, but like I mentioned in the past.  I have no self confidence when it comes to grades… Not since I started Nursing school.

I haven’t cried; but I’ve freaked out about 20+ times thinking about it.  I am so just dissatisfied.  I am SO close…& the thought of failing is just seriously heartbreaking.  I’m afraid guys- I am very afraid.

Naturally, I had to come vent off in this blog.

Keep your fingers crossed for me…because I do not know if I got the 85% or if I completely failed it.  If I failed it I keep hoping the machine that grades our bubble sheet malfunctions on mine and gives me a grade of 100%.

Yeah, I’m asking for too much, but then again, I could have gotten an 85% or more & I’m freaking out over nothing…..*insert laughter here*

Wouldn’t that be great??

Future, please just let me pass.  I’m begging you!

Until the next post =)

Adult Health You Will NOT be the End of ME

Quick Update:

I thought stress made me fat, but it isn’t- In fact I’m loosing weight and feeling sick daily.

Now, regarding my Adult Health class I am not doing so well.  Last semester I started great and I was left hanging from a cliff.  Now, I’m hanging by a cliff and I have to get myself up.  I have been studying for 2 weeks now.  I ABSOLUTELY cannot fail. I just can’t.  Do you see where my stress is coming from?

Wish me luck guys and cross your fingers for me.

Its ED not ER

My experience as a student nurse has been bittersweet; although more sweet than bitter ( and I can thank the Doctors, JK…or am I???).  In all seriousness, the nurses that have taken me under their wing have been absolutely patient and wonderful.  I’ve had a total of 6 RNs and I can honestly say that I LOVE them all.  If you are considering an internship definitely keep St. Josephs in mind.  They are absolutely wonderful with their students…its definitely a great learning environment.

For those of you who have been keeping up, I know what you’re thinking “Wow, she was just in love with the VA yesterday” & I can say that I still am.  The VA gave me a wonderful experience as well.

Anyhow, down to business.  I had my first Adult Health test today.  My confidence in taking exams & believing I passed is almost next to none.  However, I felt pretty good about it in general.    It was 70 questions & I can miss 15 and still pass with a low C.  I did study my butt off and I believe I missed less than 15….

Okay,  I believe that does it for this post.

p.s.
I am keeping sane while slowly gaining weight.
