Officially a SECOND semester nursing student!!!

So it's official, I have survived my first semester of nursing school!  1 down 4 to go, but for now I'm just extremely happy that the first semester is over & done with.  Here are my grades.  Health Assessment C (boo), Patho B, Gerontology A, Professionalism A, Health Trends/Issues A, Assessment Skills lab P.
It was such a relief to walk out of my last final today with a 92 & know that I was done with 1/5 of my classes, and that I was 1/5 of the way to changing my and my family's future forever.

After class was over a large group of us (about half of our class) met at a Mexican restaurant for lunch & some drinks & it was just so nice to be involved with such a great group of people who were so serious about their future.  Pursuing nursing as a profession is so exciting.  It's just exciting to know that my job will no longer be a job but will be a profession.  And while I was thinking about that it just really sunk in that one day I'll have a career & no longer a job & it was just a really great feeling.

So I took a couple of pics & I thought I'd post the one of me & Gregory.  Gregory & I have become very close this semester, which is really exciting.  Our goals are almost identical & I kept telling him it's like we're twins from another mother.  I was very grateful to have met him & if things go the way I plan one day we'll be opening the Kinney Clinic.  (Kidding, that's not what it would be called), but you get my point.

Anyhoo, this is me & Gregory, now OFFICIALLY second semester nursing students!!!
