Studying has consumed my life this week. I have my third med surg exam tomorrow on the neurology system. For me respiratory and cardiac are easier to understand, but the brain... it's so complex. Today I will do almost 200 practice questions along with studying with my friend. Tomorrow morning I will have a refresher and then my exam is at 1215.
Monday was a clinical day. I had a great day working with two patients. It's always good to have a positive Monday when I am able to feel confident about my nursing skills. Yes, I always realize how much I will need to learn to become a competent nurse, but when the day goes smoothly I have a confidence booster which helps a little bit.
Tuesday morning I had my Air Force PFA. I did well and it was a relief as I was very anxious to get that over with. Now I am able to devote all my energy to studying. In LLab we had a financial advisement session. It was very helpful to start thinking about where I will stand after graduation and what steps I should take at the start of my career to budget and save money.
As I said today is a long study day. I met with my academic advisor to plan out my schedule for next semester. Ah! My last one! We will be registering for courses this Sunday. I have one class today and then will get back to studying.
This weekend I am going home to visit my family. I will be travelling tomorrow night. I'm ready to have a weekend of relaxation!
Have a good day!
