Finals week is finally over, and I can update everyone on what has been going on with me. As many of you know, I am in Nursing School and it quite honesty is as hard as everyone says it is.
Before I started, I heard many people talk (or write) about how hard and time consuming it was. I never had to study too hard for many subjects before, so I secretly thought “Sure, it was hard for you, but it won’t be for me!” Ha! It is hard. It is very time consuming. It will take away your social life. It will be everything you think about for the next five semesters (or however long your program is). You will see your classmates more than you see your family and friends, and they will become your new friends and family. Luckily, I have some amazing fellow classmates, and I’m happy we are all so supportive of one another and truly want everyone to succeed in it.
Nursing school had many ups and downs for me the first semester. I thought I was going to have a panic attack during finals week because they wouldn’t tell us how we did on them until Friday, after we took the last final exam. I think this caused more harm than good for me, but I managed to pass them all, and all of the classes.
I have one class to take this summer, and then I’m on to second semester in the Fall. We have two clinical days per week in second semester, which I am kind of worried about, but hopefully it will be a good experience. I actually enjoyed the clinical day at the nursing home this semester, so I think I will like it at the hospital, too.
For now, I have a bit of a break and can do more things that don’t involve studying. So, look for some reviews and random bits of interesting things posted by me soon.
