What Nursing School has taught me so far...

As of today, I am officially 4 weeks away from finishing my first semester of Nursing School. All I have left is...

  1. Patho Exam 5 and Final Exam
  2. Assessment Exam 5 and Final Exam
  3. COPD Presentation
  4. Head to Toe Assessment
  5. Skills Exam 4 and Final Exam
  6. IV Check off
  7. Final Check off
  8. 2 Clinicals
  9. and a partridge in a pair tree
Doesn't seem like much does it? Or wait, does it? Not really, considering how far I've come in Nursing School in only 4 months. And let me just tell you what I've learned so far. 

Caffeine is what I need 99% of the time.


Sleep is very important.
Not sleeping is not absorbing.  

Celebrating small victories and accomplishments are a must
When you pass a test, celebrate.

 It's hard for a reason. You're not in your pre-requestites anymore.


Sedentary lifestyle is the cause of every disease. So, go run with your study partners and release some endorphins.


Take a day of rest.
drink some wine, eat some chocolate, put your feet up, and stop studying. 


Grey's Anatomy is an effective study tool.

I may have Friedreich's Ataxia, Tuberculosis, Restless Leg Syndrome, Hepatomegaly, or maybe I'm just a hypercondriac.
that feeling when you're reading your Pathophysiology book and it feels awfully too familiar. 


Don't talk to non nursing students about nursing school or the stress it causes.


In 8 months, I'll do this again maybe and list what a year of Nursing School has taught me.
