Hello all, today I took my second exam in one of my foundational classes and scored the lowest yet 66.5%. To say that I’m devastated doesn’t even come close. The content included renal, liver, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and epilepsy. I totally rocked the stroke, tbi, and epilepsy, but the renal and liver overtook me. It goes back to my struggles with intercellular processes; I just don’t understand that stuff as well as I should. I wanted to become a nurse to help people but slowly I keep realizing that the help comes in the form of knowing my cellular levels and lab values more than my desire to empathize with my patients...or so it seems. I’ve made an appointment with one of my instructors for advice and maybe some helpful study tips.
We’re leaving the kids with grandma and grandpa so the hubs and I can escape to a cottage in northern Wisconsin. No TV. No kids. No snow, just beautiful weather. There’s a sauna and whirlpool for relaxing, and walking trails overlooking a river. I’ll be taking lovely nature pictures so you all can see our views. What are we to do with ourselves…I’ll update you all when I get back.
