Oral Distinction

Phew, glad that’s over with!

The oral comps were a lot less painful than I feared. Of course, I was lucky enough to have two of my favorite professors as my “panel”, so that helped.

I was especially excited to learn that not only did I pass those puppies, but I passed with distinction! 🙂 I had been hoping that might happen, but by the time Friday rolled around, I was just focusing on getting through it without requiring a benzo.

Quantitatively the difference is five extra points in my comprehensive review class.

Qualitatively, it’s a much bigger deal to me. It means that I was able to think “big picture” and demonstrate growth as a nurse when I described the nursing school outcomes and what they meant to me. It also gave me a huge confidence boost going into job interview season.

This week is featuring furious studying for the Comprehensive ATI (Friday at 0800…pray for me!) and furious writing of my ethics paper (also due Friday). Nursing school is nothing if not a lesson in time management.

But the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight…
