About Me

undergrad RN
I'm a twenty-something Canadian student. After stumbling through a few years of college, I finally managed to get into the nursing school of my dreams, where I hope to graduate in 2012 with a nursing baccalaureate degree. I want to offer an honest look into how a modern nurse is educated, both good and bad. Eventually I hope to compare my education to my day-to-day career and see how it holds up. Whatever happens, it should be somewhat entertaining. Find me on allnurses.com!

Hey, You! Spam Guy!

I (and every other blogger I know) have been getting a lot of email requests asking me advertise or repost things I do not care about or wish to endorse. I do not make any money off this blog - any endorsements I may make are strictly because I am personally pleased with the results.

I DO NOT and WILL NOT repost anything someone emails me. If I want to link to something, I will find it myself.

If you want to spread the word about something, make your own blog!

Pity Party For One

The 10-page paper received a 10/10 on "matters of style" and did mediocre on everything else.

The instructor's comments included such things as "excellent writing style but missed the point".

The post that went up yesterday about the CNSA conference was typed up last week, while I was still blissfully unaware that my paper earned (?) a B-. I am glad I applied for the national team already because there is no way I'd apply for it now... self-confidence is in a puddle somewhere around my shoes.

I held a pity party for one last night, thankfully distracted by yoga and a dance class.

Amazing how one tiny hitch in the road can bring back all those memories of being the dismal underachiever in high school... Kinda had the rug pulled out from under me, there.

After some self-reflection, I have come to terms with this disappointing mark (it's more that I am disappointed that the mark doesn't reflect the enormous amount of research I did) and have resolved to bust my ass on the final exam.

I know what you mean about getting a bad mark on a paper and going back to thinking it defines you, and like you I didn't do as well in high school,as I am now while being in college. Just kick that stinkin' thinkin' to the curb. You'll do a better job on the final.
