That my friends is an A for the summer semester, woohoo! I can't believe I made it through this semester with an A, I didn't think it was ever going to end. I had to get at least a 19 on the final exam to pass with an A, and I did. So yay!

Providing care

I've talked about my reason for choosing the nursing profession in the past, so anything to do with sick children is especially hard for me. I'm sure that at some point in the future I will have encounter a situation where I'll have to provide care to family that is having some kind of crisis with a child, or god forbid has lost a child.

I constantly worry that I'll be able to provide the kind of compassionate care that people need in extremely emotionally charged situations. Well thats not exactly true, I know I'll be compassionate, I worry more about knowing what to say, and how to act in those situations where there are no words.

Do you just quietly go about making sure everything that you can do is done and be as unobtrusive as possible? Do you let the clients (is that appropriate terminology even?) family set the tone for how you provide care?

Hopefully these topics will come up once I actually begin nursing school and there will be some guidance provided.

Last week of class!

Only 4 more days until A&P II summer session is completed and I currently have a 95 average with 2 tests and the final left.

Closer to goal

Digestive Written test: 115 (After bonus points from quiz)
Digestive/Respiratory Lab Practical: 96

Class average after dropping lowest test score: 94.5

*Does a dance*

With only 3 more tests until the end of the semester I'm looking on track to get an A in A&P II this summer!

One of my goals when I started A&P last spring was to get an A in both sections of the class.

I reaaaaly want to have as many A's as possible in my nursing pre-req classes.
