Just had to tell someone! :-D Shouting off the rooftops, full of relief. I still have to do my preceptorship (kinda like student teaching) but that will be done by next month and then I can call myself a nurse!!!

 

My youngest was 2 when I started this journey and she just turned 7. Wow! Full-time accelarated program with two kids-- crazy huh?

 

(and I got straight A's too)

Thanks for sharing in my joy!  I haven't been around MDC for quite awhile since I started school, but this is where I got so much support when I was a new mama.

Oooh you are getting close!! I got the preceptorship I wanted-- on a floor where I have done several rotations in the past and know some of the staff. It's the renal/diabetic floor. Some of my classmates got more exciting positions but I really like med/surg and it's also easier to meet preceptor objectives there rather than a specialty area.

Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

...and from one nurse to another, you do not get put your all-A status in tiny letters here on MDC.  Shout it loud and proud!!

 

Also, start planning your bonfire.  After graduation, we burned all of our care plans in a large fire, and it was really cathartic.  :)

Ewwwww, I HATED Care Plans! I wish I would have thought to burn (or sell) mine!

 

Congratulations fellow nurse! I know how hard nursing school is, can't imagine doing it with kids and making straight A's, too! Well done!!!

You go girl!!! I think you'll come to appreciate doing your preceptorship on a more general med/surg floor too. Congrats!

It will go by so fast! :-) I really really loved nursing school except for the care plans. But even those had a purpose. I also made some lifelong friends. Nothing like adversity to bring people together. Now I know why my grandpa still keeps in touch with his war buddies . .
