Getting the jitters!!

It's getting soooo close to the end of the semester!!  I cannot believe that this Friday is our last OB class (final & HESI on the same day, can you say yuck!) Tomorrow is our last lecture for Med/Surg & then our HESI is on Wed & our final is a week from tomorrow & then we will be DONE!!  Do you realize that once this semester is over that we will have passed the halfway point.  We will be on the downhill slope!! Only 2 more semesters. I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!

Speaking of the last 2 semesters, we got another cool thing going on at our school.  Up until this semester our 5th semester consisted of leadership, community health & something else (which we all heard was major boring).  I mean you go from having hands on clinicals to community health?  Uh no thank you.  So, one of the newer professors came up with a great idea called a Capstone.  So now instead of doing those boring classes with NO clinicals, we will get to CHOOSE what we want to focus on for our final semester.  We'll get two choices.  How totally cool is that???!!!  And what's even better about it is we can choose something we've not had a clinical in, like ER.  Which is really great because we don't get an ER rotation during school.  How awesome is that?! They brought it before the school this semester & it JUST passed.  So thankfully the semester ahead of us will be the 1st ones to do it (meaning hopefully they'll get all the kinks worked out before we get there) and we'll be the 2nd semester to do it.  I am really looking forward to having a clinical that I get to choose. 

So here is what I'm planning this week.  Today study for OB, tomorrow M/S, Tue OB, Wed M/S & Thur O/B then the rest of the weekend M/S & my final on Monday.  I can't believe it's already here!! Woohoo!! 

Also, I am super looking forward to our end of the semester party.  Of course we'll all go to our favorite mexican restaurant for lunch after our final like we always do (I love that we've created our own tradition), but also one of the students is planning a shindig at her house to celebrate.  Can you say white girl wasted fun!! I'm so excited that my hubs is off work that night & we'll get to go & celebrate!! 

Now just to pass all of my HESI's & finals.  Guess I shouldn't put the cart before the horse, but I'm just so excited to be so close to the end!!  May 6th come on!!!!


  1. Most program get a Capstone as the final semester... it is great experience and you will enjoy it. Who knows you may end up with a job offer!

    1. That would be awesome! I'm definitely looking forward to this.

  2. That sounds great. Good luck with your finals
