ACCEPTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is the beginning of the rest of my life!!! Today I was ACCEPTED into Blarvard's (name changed to protect the innocent) nursing program. Starting in January I will again roam the hallowed halls of college, but this time it will be a University and not a community college. This time I will be working toward my Bachelor's degree. This time I will be working toward changing my family's future. This time I will be working toward a life that includes someone in my family that graduated from college!!!! This time will be the beginning of what I hope is a life changing dream come true. I am SO excited, I GOT IN!!!
Now of course, this is where the nerves kick in. Am I smart enough? Will I be able to pass these classes? Will I be able to afford everything I have to have? Will I be able to balance school, a family and possibly work? I am totally thanking God right now for how this has all fallen into place. Once again I am just praising a Father that knows the road ahead. A Father that only wants the best for me. A Father that sees the future I can't see and that leads me by the hand towards a goal that I have dreamed about now for almost 3 years. Thank you Lord!!

On a side note I had the coolest call just a minute ago. After I got my acceptance letter I posted a picture of it on FB & one of the women I've become FB friends with (who is a NP, going for her DNP) called me!! It was so sweet!! We've talked on FB, emailed etc. She has given me many words of encouragement and I was so touched that she called. Not only did she call but she said if I needed anything...help with a problem, tips on getting through school, even help if money was short to just give her a call. How sweet is that? I definitely know that God "put" her in my life. She even said she would be looking for a graduation invitation. Isn't that just too sweet!!! I am so thankful to have "met" her and can't wait to meet her for real 2 years from now at my graduation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess I'm gonna get off here and go make some dinner, but I'll be walking on sunshine all the way there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohooooooo

MedSurg - Ortho Floor....

Ok can we say TOTAL snooze fest???  Today was our first official day on the MedSurg floor, but unfortunately since the professor figured we might be overwhelmed with over 15 pages of clinical paperwork due in one night, we weren't really able to do much (meaning no passing of meds).  We were basically put into the PCT roles.  So, pretty much it felt like last semester's clinical all over again, a bunch of elderly people, except for these ones have total hip replacements instead of just being old.   And let me tell you I can say with almost 100% assurance that working on the Ortho wing of the MedSurg floor is NOT where I see my future nursing self.  I mean maybe it was just my perception, but I saw the nurses basically in the same role as they were in the nursing home.  Going from patint room to patient room passing meds.  BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I hate that we don't get an ER rotation, I REALLY think that I would like that much more, except that as a new nurse I just don'…

I'm still alive!! Tomorrow is the NCLEX!

So as you can see I have GRADUATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!  I am SO happy that nursing school is over, but can we say holy terrified?  Tomorrow is the NCLEX & I feel thoroughly unprepared.  Fortunately our school provided us with the HURST Review and even though I have been studying this for about 2 weeks now I still feel completely terrified to actually take the test. 
Of my former classmates I know of one so far who has failed....so scary...
The rest of them are chugging along & passing on a daily basis, hopefully I will be one of them!

But to rewind, here are a few pics from graduation & my graduation party that my precious husband & sister threw for me:








As I said, tomorrow I take the NCLEX.  Honestly, up until I had the HURST review I really wasn't that nervous.  During the review the teacher advised us that as of 2012 they have changed the test to make it harder & the first time pass rate went from 94% to 88% (or something like that).  Um what?!…

Frazzle Razzle RN guest post...

One of my first nursing bloggy friends was Rachel and today she is guest posting on this here little 'ol blog.  If you read this blog you probably already read hers, but if not then head on over there.  Again without further ado here is my 2nd guest post:

Hello everyone, my name is Zazzy and I'm an avid reader of Candi's nursing school blog and I'm honored she's chosen to have me host for a day while she's out relaxing in the sun having fun! (I wish you would have taken me in your suitcase CANDI :D)

I have two more semesters of my own to complete before I graduate this May from nursing school, and I also have a fun blog detailing my journey. You can read more at Frazzledrazzlern.blogspot.com

In the meantime while going to nursing school I've been gaining experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and I finally figured out a system that works for me. I was pretty disorganized when I first started and felt overwhelmed with not knowing what to do when a…
