3 down, 3 to go...

So far all my papers & projects have been turned in & 2 finals have been taken.  Well, one final & one skills lab check off, yep that's right HEAD-TO-TOE baby!!  Woohoo.  Done with 100%!!  Well 99.9%, I forgot to say her pulse was strong & 2+, but other than that, I ACED that sucker!!!  I wasn't really worried though, we had gone through it several times in class & I had practiced with my shadow several times.  Got a 97 on my portfolio (whatever) and took my Professionalism final today & surely I did well enough to maintain my A in that class.  OMG, as a matter of fact I just checked it and I made 100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am SO psyched, especially since there were like 4 or 5 questions that I wasn't sure about.  Whoa, talk about shocked!!  So needless to say I maintained my A :D  So now I just have Patho, Health Assessment & Gero finals left, next Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday.  The only one I'm worried about is Health Assessment.  That's one of those classes where the teacher looks you dead in the face and says "You're not going to make it & neither is half of your class".  Not to me thank God, but she did say that to a student in my class.  Harsh.  So I know that even if I were to get a 74.4 in that class she would happily flunk me right out of this semester, and right now I only have a 78, which freaks me out.  But all I can do is study, study, study & seriously pray.  I can hardly believe that the end is almost here.  I don't know what I'm going to do for a WHOLE summer without school :(.  Maybe I should come up with a plan now.....I think I definitely need to go over my Patho some more & I suppose going over health assessment wouldn't hurt either......we'll see.  Do you guys study over the summer?   How is everyone else doing at the end of the semester?


  1. My Patho and Ethics classes are plugging along, finals are not until May 14th or the week there abouts.

    Then my summer gets started with Block 3 of the Nursing Program for my RN and then will roll right into Block 4 (final block) and graduation in December.

    So yeah studying over the summer... but I didn't before. Sometimes you just need a break!

  2. Ugh, I WISH we had summer courses. I mean we get out on May 2 & don't go back until August 27, that's almost FOUR whole months!! We could be a whole semester ahead if we went to school those months instead. Very frustrating. Plus Patho should NOT be taught in one semester, it definitely needs to be broken into Patho 1 & 2 like A & P. So, after you graduate will you be ready to take the NCLEX?
