Ok am I dense????

I swear I think I'm living in the twilight zone, but then again maybe it's just me.  For those of you in nursing school I wonder if you've heard the story of the girl in a master's FNP program who posted on FB that she wanted to buy someone's paper for $50.  Now she said she was just posting this because she wanted to see an EXAMPLE of someone's paper who had made a good grade.  Huh???  Are you sniffing glue?  Am I?  I means seriously, in what world would you think it would be ok to post on a PUBLIC website that you wanted to buy someone's paper????  Even IF you were joking, which she wasn't, why would you think this was ok???  Well guess who didn't think it was ok?  The school.  She was promptly expelled for this, I mean am I the only one that saw this coming?  And I have to say I agree with them.  In my book offering to buy someone's paper ONLINE is grounds for expulsion.  Now in her "defense" she said she had already turned in the first draft of her paper, which she points out means she was not trying to turn in someone else's paper as her own, BUT still, why at this point in your education would you take this risk???  And honestly this is something I would think a high school student would do, NOT someone in a Masters degree program, but would you believe there are people online that are defending her?  Which brings me back to my point.  Am I crazy?  Would YOU post ON FACEBOOK that you wanted to buy someone's paper for $50?????  Please enlighten me if I'm missing something here!!



  1. Um. No.
    Some people really MUST be that dense...

    1. Whew, that's what I thought! But there are actually people defending her??? I thought I was losing it for a minute.

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 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?!…

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

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…
