So, I won't be a nurse for a couple more years, but...I will be one!

My alarm either didn't go off or I didn't hear it because I woke up on my own at 9:05a!!!! I was already stressed and kind of ticked off. I threw on clothes (thank goodness I took a bath the night before!), ran the toothbrush w/toothpaste over my teeth for about 30 secs (2 minutes be damned when you're in a hurry! Sorry teeth!), grabbed my info and drove like a bat out of hell to the school! I arrived about 4 minutes late and she'd already taken another student back to get her schedule. How I managed to make it to the school in 15-18 minutes without getting a ticket, I'll never know but forever be grateful for!
Anyway, I got back there and explained the situation. The advisor was very nice about it and our meeting was finished within 5-10 minutes. I received the schedule that I wanted (yay!) and now I'm signed up for classes. I have Monday's off the first 5 weeks of classes and starting in September I'll have Fridays off when we start our Med/Surg courses and clinicals. I can't wait! I've already bought a pair of shoes (I'll post a link at the bottom) and I love them! They aren't very pretty, but they feel absolutely amazing on my feet! I tried the NurseMate's as well (one Landau on one foot and a NurseMate on the other lol) while walking around the store, but my feet fell in love with the Landau. I think I'm going this weekend to look into buying a stethoscope, penlight, and rolling backpack.
I wish all of you who are waiting to get into nursing school luck! I'll be posting more of my journey, don't worry. I've just been bogged down with summer classes. I have a few Micro study notes that I plan to post when I get around to it. Talk to you soon!
Landau Comfort Shoes (AMAZING!)

I'm sorry I haven't posted in forever, but finals kicked my butt and I've been waiting on the acceptance/rejection letters from my school's nursing program. They are supposed to be mailed out on or before May 30th and some campus' received their letters yesterday. The scores for that campus were so high that I'm really, really nervous. I think I wrote before how my school decides admittance into the program, but I'll go into it again.

Took the last lab practical in A&P 102 today and guess who rocked it? Oh yeah! I did even better than last time with a 103/100! Woohoo! I'm so happy because that means I only have to make an 80% on the final to keep my A!!!! I didn't find out what my grade was until about an hour or so ago and I literally danced all over the living room and pc area. My kids thought I was crazy, lol. I can barely contain my excitement, can you tell?

I just finished up the PowerPoint on the Reproductive System, Chapter 22 in Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology. You can grab it from the menu to the right. I'll be working on meiosis and fetal development next, then I'm done.
Update #1: The Meiosis PowerPoint is finished, woohoo!
Update #2: The Fetal Development PowerPoint is finished and so am I, woohoo!!! I'm happy to be done with these, but I have to admit, I'm feeling VERY well prepared for the lab practical tomorrow!
Update #3: I changed the PowerPoints to .pdf documents to make it easier. You can find them all on the menu to the right! And....I'm definitely done now!
