At the beginning of the semester,
At the end of the semester,
For everyone else,
Wishing all Nursing students taking their exams this week (and next), heaps of luck. If you get stuck, eliminate the negative self-talk, visualize yourself standing in front of the patient and what you would actually do for them - Believe in yourself, and believe you know enough to get through this exam, as well as any other trial that is set before you.
106 days ago I had no clue of what was ahead of me- how many breakdowns, laughs, sleepless nights, and long talks would fill these days of my 1st semester of nursing school. Weekly exams, clinical days when I had no clue if I belonged in a hospital, and trying to understand what really was important led to confusion and doubts about my goals and destiny. But here I am, realizing I’ve completed and passed my last final, and realizing life is a journey that takes twists and turns but leads you to where you’re meant to be. I’m thankful and blessed.
Teacher: Make sure to know the signs and symptoms!
*Doesn’t tell you the signs and symptoms*
So then you search the internet, text books, power point slides, ATI books, etc. to find the damn signs and symptoms of a single disease.
WHY AM I PAYING THESE PEOPLE MONEY TO TEACH ME THINGS IF I HAVE TO END UP TEACHING MYSELF ANYWAY.
ATI Pharmacology final tomorrow…at 8 in the morning, no less. This book just seems like it repeats itself with every drug.
