Hi! Thanks for the support! I think fear is both the greatest hurdle and a great motivator. You already have a lot of specific goals which will be very helpful…if you do intend on foreign travel and use of your skills, I might even suggest looking into being a Certified Nurse Midwife! I think a passion for people is just as important as clinical knowledge sometimes in this field and that is sometimes what can be hard to find. I personally haven’t take a labor and delivery course (next year!) but it is truly something that is passion-driven. Otherwise, keep working hard in your beginning classes, and don’t be afraid of failure, because there are a lot of setbacks and struggles. It is definitely worth it! Best of luck to you!
True story: my classmate gave my clinical instructor a bottle of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey as a parting gift because she always commented how much he made her want to drink.

I have my last med-surg clinical of the semester, and of my junior year, tomorrow. It’s surreal I’ve made it this far. Last psych clinical Wednesday, and a cumulative progressive final for psych lecture Thursday. Sometimes the “lasts” are just as monumental as the “firsts”.
In nursing, if you have a .9 drug calc, you’d round up. In nursing school, if you (or I, hypothetically) have a grade that ends in .9, it will be rounded down.
