Well hi there, won't you come in, take off your sweater, grab you a cup of coffee and sit a while? Won't you be my neighbor?

Ok, I'm only kidding I don't talk like that, as you'll soon see.

Seriously, welcome to my blog about my wild, scary, exciting, sometimes depressing days as a nursing student. I'm going to try and answer all the questions a future nursing student or someone interested in nursing as a career might have as I go along. Because I don't know if everyone is like me or not, but before I get into something I love to know ALL the deets. I mean I want to know the ins and outs (hence my blog address :) ), the good, the bad and the ugly. I feel like the more I know the better decision I can make. So as I said, my plan is to totally blog all the way through school, so I guess you need to plan on sticking around for a minimum of 2 years, but probably more like 3 1/2 or 4 because my evil master plan is to go straight from getting my BSN to getting my MSN with no break in between. You see my ultimate goal, no not really ultimate, but my immediate goal is actually to become a Nurse Practitioner. My ultimate goal is to teach at a university or community college, but that is WAY down the road. So this is the beginning of what I've heard is the hardest 9 semesters of my life (5 nursing & 4 NP). I hope you'll come along for the ride and if you've just started reading this because you're researching this option, I hope this blog doesn't scare the absolute crap out of you
really helps give you an inside look at the life of a nursing student and beyond. I am SUPER excited about what the future has in store & I can't wait to share it with each and every one of you.
