So I thought I would do a journal since I have so many thoughts.
I have been a nurse "officially" since 1991. Growing up my mother was chronically ill (much later to be diagnosed with Lupus) and I was her nurse. I remember doing wet to dry dressing changes at 8. Home health did not exist back then (at leat not in the US).
I worked in Texas and Oklahoma and so I worked my way up the food chain. CNA/CMA/rehab tech/LVN/ RN/BSN.
I went back to get my BSN specifically
This is my first official journal entry. I have never really wrote in a journal but then again I have never taken on a challenge quite like this. So I am about 5 weeks away form the start of school and am nervous as hell. I keep asking myself if I am smart enough to do this and the answer is a resounding NO. However, I have never been one to quit so I am up to this challenge and have something to prove to myself. I will do this!!
My wife fully supports this goal of mine and I know
Not much free time! Clinicals are great! Having great case experiences and learning so much. Several more weeks and then it will be back to class.
So... your program being over seems like it would be a relief.. however, the truth is... you are not done at all...
Unfortunately, you have another month orso of study to do before you take the boards... and boy... is it hard to stay motivated to study...
So here I am.. taking a break...
Alot of ppl asked me what I planned to do for board review.. here it is..
I plan to take boards end of july..
3 Months prior
As of today I am a graduate and no longer in school with nothing else to do but study for boards!!
