Winding Down

The Comprehensive Predictor seemed a lot scarier than it actually was. I was more than prepared, and I must say that I did, in fact, rock it! 🙂 In fact, our entire cohort passed on the first go. ‘First time in the history of our program. Go us!

If we hadn’t worked our arses off the last 18 months, it probably would have been a much a different story. So in that way, believe the hype. Nursing requires critical thinking and intelligence.

But on the other hand, trust that you’re going to learn what you need to learn. I can’t believe how much information they have crammed into my brain. But it’s sticking and I’m kinda amazed at the crazy nonsense I can rattle off.

So the hard part is over…

There is one clinical shift standing between me and turkey.

There are three post-turkey clinical shifts, an annotated bibliography, and a paper (most of which is already written) standing between me and the completion of my pre-licensure coursework.

There are one fingerprinting fiasco, a $200 test registration fee, and goo-gobs of flash cards standing between me and the NCLEX-RN.

There are mountains of job applications, resumes and cover letters standing between me and gainful employment.

This is an odd version of the 12 Days of Christmas. But I’ll take it!
