Got my B!! But still nervous....

So, I got my B in Peds! Woohoo, but I'm still EXTREMELY nervous about my CC final!!

As a matter of fact I'm only posting on here because I'm so overwhelmed with the amount I need to study that I'm procrastinating.  Well, that & I have to get ready for work anyway.  (I seriously don't remember signing up to work today).  As I said before, I only need a 58 to pass, BUT we're talking 15 questions on heart strips & then there's the math (don't even get me started on that) & then there's 18 questions on shock.  I mean, who knew there was so much to know about freaking shock!!  And it would be ok if there was just one type of shock that we had to know about, but NOOOO there's like 5 different types & oh my goodness, I am completely freaking right now!!!!!!!!!!!

My final is Tuesday at 9:00 & my nerves are steadily frying one by one.  I can feel the tension coursing though my viens.  Heck, I've even given up striving for a B, at this point I JUST WANT TO PASS!  Can you feel the chaos? 

On a positive note the teacher did say that whatever grade you go in with then that's usually the grade you come out with.  I sure hope so! I can't afford to go down a grade!!!! Lord help me....

Again, if you reading this, pray for me!!!!!!!


  1. You'll do great and I'm praying for you!

  2. Take it from a new grad, you have absorbed way more knowledge about all of these things than you can even imagine. Good Luck, but I am sure you will do fine.

  3. Good Luck! I'm sure you will do great.

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'…

Frazzle Razzle RN guest post...

One of my first nursing bloggy friends was Rachel and today she is guest posting on this here little 'ol blog.  If you read this blog you probably already read hers, but if not then head on over there.  Again without further ado here is my 2nd guest post:

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…

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?!…
