Would you like fries with that?

Today was it, the first test of my 2nd semester in nursing school and well, at least I passed.  I couldn't study. I just couldn't get into the groove and I never got around to really getting the information into my head.  It's one of those things were you get so overwhelmed that you don't know where to start so you just do nothing. That was me.  Fortunately I had taken the CNA class over the summer and so I had a pretty good idea of the answers.  Not enough for a B, but what's the saying "C's = degrees"?  Well C's don't equal a nurse practitioner degree, so I know I have to buck up & get a grip on these studies.  What I hate about the first test is that you never really know how to study for it.  You're not sure exactly how the questions are going to flow and so the first test is always the barometer, so it can only go up from here right?  I mean now I know what to expect and how to study, so the next test should be MUUUUCH better :D  Otherwise I may just have to go on down to Mickey D's and put in my application.  ;D

  1. Candi, I am right there with you! We have our first exam (I am second semester as well) tomorrow and had two practiicums today. Needless to say, the first one is always hit or miss as to what we need to focus on...and the roller coaster of stress that is nursing school rolls on, and on, and on

  2. No need to apply at McDonalds. Remember the golden rule...it isn't always the "right" answer, it is the "best" answer! I know, ivory tower nursing...

  3. @ Michele - Glad to have another 2nd semester around!! :D We will do this!! What type of program are you in?

    @PediNP - Nah it's not Ivory Tower, you've been there done that, so I'll take any advice you got! Also, sometimes the "best" answer to me isn't the best answer, lol.
