I am D.U.N done with nursing school.
Had my final this morning and the grades just posted.
I didn't do as well as I had hoped, but I did well enough to pass.

Pinning (graduation) is tomorrow and then I'll have to take the boards and then I'll be a RN.

    Reminds me of the joke “what do you call a doctor that got all D’s in med school?  Doctor.”  You made it through, and there is no GPA on a diploma

    Congrats!!

    Bullsi, there's been a running joke since I started nursing school, "C's gets degrees" :D

    It is more important to have 1/2 a brain and common sense than to know all the obscure answers to questions on an exam, lots of folks with none of the above and a personality like a stack of paper plates ace tests and fail in practice, you are going to do great, congratulations!

    Congrats Paul. I've worked with a lot of new RN's and I can surely tell you the one that got straight "A's "are not any smarter than the rest. They just think so :D

    Zorba, I took my LPN boards back in January, since I was eligible, as a "just in case" (Emergency parachute) for these last 2 semesters

    We predicted this months ago.  B)

    Congratulations!

    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Ron, there are nursing shortages pretty much everywhere.
