Plan of Care

navigating through nursing school

Tag Archives: exams

it’s almost over!

Quick update: I have managed to pull my disastrous grade up at the last minute, after today’s exam. (I actually had two exams today; now I’m finally done with hourly lecture exams and only have the four finals and two clinical shifts left to go.) I am very, very tired. I hope that I’ll ever get the ability to recount events from my first semester again.

Part of how I haven’t been blogging enough, though, is that I also haven’t been reading enough. I never feel inspired to share when I’m not looking at the things other people are sharing. Little minutiae? I have Dreamwidth, Livejournal and Tumblr accounts for that in addition to Twitter. Thinking about having my nursing-related tweets actually ported in as entries, but I think that drives a lot of people crazy (I know it does on the sites where I do my more personal, semi-private writing; I’m one of the people who doesn’t like it because it feels largely like it’s all half an IM conversation) … not sure if it would drive people crazy when all the tweets were 100% related to blog content: moments relating to school or nursing-related links. I do a lot of “I liked this article on nursinglink or scrubsmag or medscape or something like that” tweeting.

This paragraph is running away with me. The point is now that I’ve done two major exams in one day and gotten 90s on both of them, I’m treating myself to a tiny break and just … reading other blogs. I’ve already come across a post I can’t resist linking:

you’re a bad, bad nurse, on when nurses call in sick.

Not that I can think of anything intelligent to say on it, because I’m tired. But it’s a good post. I agree with everything in it.

And now I should probably do a little bit more reading and then go to bed, because I’ve got to get up at 5am to get to clinical tomorrow on time. In the snow. Without my GPS for the first time (I still get lost too easily trying to find this hospital; it is not close by). Who hates winter? That’s right. Me.
