Sitting back, relaxing

Yeah, right.

Let’s see- Monday, unit exam.

Tuesday, pediatric ATI exam.

Wednesday, pediatrics final exam.

Thursday, dunno.  Might be a free day for me, if it’s hospital orientation.  I’ll be back at the same hospital I was at last time & don’t have to do orientation again.

If I come out of Monday’s test & keep my A, I can make a 68 on the final and get no points from ATI (it’s pass/fail, pass gives you 10% toward the final grade).  If I pass the ATI, I can make a 48 on the final and still pass the class.

I don’t think I’ll have any problems with any of them honestly, but it’s always good to expect the worst & be pleasantly surprised.


After this week, I’ve got 6 days of lecture, 7 days of clinicals, 1 day of presentations, 14 exams, & 8 days of preceptorship.  All those odd numbers mean one thing- 29 days before graduation.

I’m close enough to the light at the end of the tunnel now to KNOW it’s not the headlight of an oncoming train.

Y’all have a safe & enjoyable Sunday and thanks again to everyone who’s offered words & thoughts of kindness and support over the last two years.  I sincerely appreciate it!
