First CC test, maybe I should go to class...

Or at least listen to all of the podcasts...or maybe just study?  Either way I bombed my first CC test.  I got a 73, which I guess is better than a 53 but it's still failing in our program.  But fortunately it's nothing that I can't come back from, so I'm not too terribly bummed about it. 

Had my 2nd peds clinical, LOVED it! I mean seriously, I just can't explain how much I love pediatrics.  After I get out of nursing school I don't ever, ever, EVER want to take care of an adult again.  I seriously don't.  And while I would love to get my PNP, the only program around here is at Vanderbilt, which although Vandy is an AWESOME school and very prestigous, it also comes with an AWESOME & prestigous price tag as well.  I wish there was an online course that was doable but I haven't really found any.  I found one in Alabama at USA but it's double the time of the one at Vanderbilt and you have to have 2 years of floor experience first.  BUT the good news is that I have questioned many of the NP's I "know" & they have all said that it's possible for me to narrow my scope of practice as a FNP.  So, that's great news!  I've always leaned towards FNP just because it's a broader scope, but now that I want to narrow that scope I was a little worried, but it looks like that's going to be ok.  So I guess I won't have to go to Vandy after all, we'll see.  I think I'm going to stick with applying to the school I currently attend & the one other school that I have had my eye on from the beginning & just go from there.  Also, the good thing about both of those is that with my GPA I don't have to take the GRE, yay!!

Anyway, I have more to talk about, but I need to get a "reflection" done for class & look up some articles to go with it, so I will pop back on here later.

Hope everyone is having a great week!  I'm looking forward to the weekend!!


  1. Girl you crack me up! I love the fact that you are excited to work with children. Once you find your calling it's hard to turn your back. Let me just make it known that everything they teach you in nursing school is important to recall for the NCLEX. Just keep that in mind when you're going through tests and studying. Take care, and good luck!

    1. I love peds so much. It's kind of scary to think that I want to limit myself to just peds, but I shouldn't be scared if that's what I love right? And I can't even think about the NCLEX right now. I'm seriously going to allow myself one fail just so I won't be disappointed lol.
