The past 4 weeks went by extremely fast, though I hate reading and studying I find that’s all I ever do now. At the end of each day I feel like my head is going to explode with all the info I’m learning and than trying to retain. When they said nursing school was hell, that for sure was not an understatement. You have to have the motivation and the heart to keep up with the work, be excited to learn something new everyday, and also survive on sleeping a few hours. I’m ecstatic that I’m doing well so far but still overwhelmed at the same time. I have one test down with a 88% and passed the dosage and calculation test on my first try. I have two papers to write and one more test this week and than I can breathe a little, maybe for a day. Until the next round of tests hit me. I’m happy but my brain is hurting because all of the information and work that I have. I’m hoping for simple and pleasant patients next week. Whew only 11 more weeks to go and I’ll be done with first semester. THANK YOU THANK YOU GOD!
I’m anxious/nervous/excited/restless. But most of all stressed and it hasn’t even started yet. I’m overwhelmed with my syllabus and just looking at it is making me crack under the pressure. I think I’m ready, hopefully. Im praying that I’ll make it and that this year will zoom right past with me at the end with a nursing degree. Time to get down and dirty with my textbooks so I can get ahead of the game. Here we go, a new chapter that will lead to my future. I’m freaking scared to death. -_-
