Just one more course left and then I am done with my RN degree! I just finished up psych/mental health nursing, and there was a point during the course that I thought I wouldn't pass. There was so much work involved with this course:
* 12 hours of manadatory community service
* a health promotion project to be presented to the community service agency
* another presentation to the class and all the instructors
* a research paper
* clinicals every other weekend
* patient assessments
* patient teaching plans
* and 2 exams
Last night I took the final exam for this course and got a high B. However I did extremely well on my first exam and very well on my research paper and health promotion project that I ended up getting an A for the course! I am also happy to report that all of my fellow classmates were successful in passing this course.
I am exhausted now and plan to spend the weekend in intensive card-making therapy before I start my next and final course, "Advanced Concepts in Nursing", next week.
If you know a nursing student please shower her or him with kindness. Nursing school and studying for the NCLEX is very stressful on us.
