My last final is finished tonight!!!!! Long semester. Can't believed I took five classes and wrote around 25 papers (average 5 papers per class). Never wrote so many papers in my life! However, they were all interesting papers though and I learned a lot (two papers, I got an A+ for content, but my grammar is messed up and my grade got knocked down). Also I am blessed to have all very good prof again.

Just reflecting… I don't think I would have gotten the As and A+s in my papers if I did not have the life experience. If I have taken the same classes say the first time around with my first bach, I would not have the depth to write these hard papers to get the high grades. God's has His timing. 

Got this week to relax a little before next week nursing school start.

Next week is the first NAMI Provider class that I am part of the team teaching. We have a team of 5 instructors, very interesting. We'll be teaching social workers, nurses, clerks, … first line folds about special aspect of serious mental illness; things that they do not learn in school. Excited with this opportunity also as it will help me with nursing.

I have not been writing because I am extremely busy, so say the least.

Anyway, I gone through one interview with my hospital sponsor (my first choice) and I got picked! So I decided not to interviews with other hospital sponsors. As far as I know, there will be 5 of us who get sponsored by this hospital.  My other classmates will get sponsored by other hospitals.The cohort I am in, everyone got sponsored (horrah!).

Finished 4 finals this week. Next week, I got one more finals. I almost did not make it if the profs did not change their minds on the final papers and give another more interesting assignment instead.

After next week, nursing school start! I am excited and a bit concern because of the amount of material I have to learn in such a short time (10 weeks in summer session). Taking 5 courses in summer.  I never taken that many courses in summer in my life!

But all the cources are very interesting to me as I looked at the textbooks and the content of the course already. I am taking:

  • Nursing Research – Good course as I am interested in knowing more how to evaluate research and stuff like that. Especially given we have all these alternative stuff that nurses will have to deal with and we need to be able to know how to evaulate them. Not just alternative stuff, but conventional medicine too, we need to know how to evaulate new therapies and so on.
  • Pathophyiology – This is going to be a tough course.
  • Pharmacology – This is going to be even a tougher course.
  • Nursing Process – I like process stuff (guess that is from the old computer engineering days).
  • Nursing Skills – Guess I be poking oranges… Will learn basic assessments and all kinds of stuff.  Ok… I will learn how to make a perfect bed even if it kills me.
