I passed my medical surgical nursing class on the second try. Knitting helped to keep me calm and centered when I couldn't concentrate on my studies and prepare me to start reading the 100lb text book again so I could get through.

Now all I have is two more classes to take to be able to graduate!!!!

I think now I need to take on a new knitting challenge. Maybe socks after I get my (nearly complete, sizes 2 - 15) needle set on the 20th for B-day.

Thanks for sharing in my celebration. I really PASSED!!

Doesn't that feel just so great! What are you going for a BSN, AA, NP or are you not in nursing school? I might have picked up the topic incorrectly. If you are going into nursing, welcome....we need all the nurses we can get and the pay is much much better than it used to be in the olden days. I have been in the nursing field in some form or other since I was 17 thats almost 26 years! Oh my...I hadn't realized how long I've been taking care of patients. I love this career and even though it's tough, I'd never want to be or do anything else. Since we have to work (well most of us) we better find something we truly love. I can't imagine going to a job every day that I hated. Lifes just too short for that....since I'm going to work I have to be doing something I love and something that helps others.

Congratulations Fraggle!! We are all so happy for you! And yes, you should definitely do some socks. I am certainly a member of the sock fan club and encourage you to do them...do them now :) You will never be able to stop! Enjoy your needle set when you get it. That is a fabulous b-day gift. Again, great job on passing your class. She should be very proud of yourself. So now I expect to find socks when I'm reading your blog :)

I hope you get through those last two classes with ease. When you graduate you should reward yourself with some great yarn. It is a great accomplishment.

Let's see. I am in nursing school, an ADN program at a local technical college. I've always wanted to be a nurse and when I strayed from trying to be one, I wasn't happy, so I'm now very close to my goal. I have a pediatrics class that I will take in the summer and now (I started it today) is Advance concept nursing that touches on trauma care and includes our preceptorship that I'll start on Monday. I have to work in 108 hours with my preceptor (for those who don't know preceptorship is similar job shadowing, I'll do patient care under direction of an RN). Plus get in class time, test time, and my 36 hr weekly job. So as much as I want to do socks, I may only start working on them the day I get my B-day present and then wait until I'm done working my 108 hours.

Thanks all, and I'll share more about school later.

Congrats! As someone who couldn't even watch the child birth videos in pre-natal class, as someone who literally threw up the first time she got up after having a child, I love those who can stomach it to look after me.

Fraggle you are so gonna love nursing. It's a wonderful career. I have my ADN and a bachelors in biology. Never did get my BSN, but I get paid the same and have the same jobs here where I work as a BSN so I don't have the incentive to go back for that although I wouldn't do it even if I had the chance. I would go back and work on my masters the Phd in Microbiology or virology. You have done the right thing. No use being miserable and unhappy in your career choice. Think about all the time we have to spend at work. Almost all our adult lives....if we're lucky. I refuse to be unhappy or miserable for that long....life is worth true happiness....it takes time but it will come. I loved my preceptorship. It was awesome. I learned so much. Basically, my preceptor would get his assignment then I would take over. He was there if I needed help or if I needed to learn new techniques. He was the best and I learned so so much from him. Not all programs have preceptorships, but those that do have many more nurses that pass boards on their first try. Enjoy school. Learn alot. But expect to get on those floors and figure what you learned will fit into your baby finger compared to what we learn once we get into the field. I probably didn't feel comfortable as a RN until I had been working 6-8 months, so be kind to yourself and give yourself lots of space to learn and make mistakes...little ones anyway. We so badly need good nurses alot of our nurses are getting to retirement age and there aren't as many new ones coming into the field. Good luck, study hard, and don't forget to ENJOY!!!
