Here is how my first day of my senior semester of nursing school went. It is now 8:00 at night while I am writing this post. I just now got to set down and relax. I have been going non-stop since 6:38 am (lol when I got up) this morning. I better get use to it because this time next year this is how it will be working 12 hour shifts. Sheew!
Senior Semester of Nursing School
Today was my first day back since school let out in April and it was my first day of my Senior year. Everything went exactly as planned and it was a good day. My first class started at 8:15 am and it was my care of adults class. The class seems like it is going to be a lot of material to study but so far the professor seems very good with lecturing and make points to point out the things we need to know for the test which is absolutely great. I hope I learn about nursing care plans.
I have had many professor just lecture and never point out what we needed to know for the test and pretty much just tested from the book which makes studying a lot harder. The only complaint I have about the class is that it is four freaking hours long! My attention span only lasts for so long lol! I have a feeling that my brain is going to be numb after that class but I guess it will help prepare me for becoming a Registered Nurse RN.
Then I had a break for about an hour. I was hoping to score some free food like they had last year so I didn’t pack a good lunch (only some trial mix). And guess what? They didn’t have it this year 🙁 Let’s just say I was really hungry when I got home.
After that I went to my next class which was community population based nursing care with a focus in the prison system. I decided to pick that topic because it seems really interesting. I find prisoners interesting for some reason. Twisted huh?
That class seems okay….but I don’t know yet. The professor seems really nice but I think it is going to be a lot of busy work and plus I am not into research type nursing. I hate research…I rather let other people do it. I am more of the hands on type wanna be nurse.
Also I got to meet everyone who is going to be in my clinical group for my two classes and they all seem awesome. I am happy with the places I got put because they are close to where I live. Some people were put in clinical groups that live far away from their clinical site. It stinks having to get up at 5:00 am in the morning just to drive an hour so you can get to the place on time because it is so far away.
Tomorrow I have class from 1:00-4:00 pm for my clinical orientation and next week I will have that day as a clinical day. Wish me luck on my calculations and dosage test that I have tomorrow.
We have to score an 85 or higher to pass it. That means we can only miss 3 questions. If we don’t score that we have to do some remediation work and retake it again. Right when I get done here I am going to go and work me some problems.
