    You rock!  I know you stayed in your lane and are transitioning from emt type work to RN, but it is a heck of a middle life change.  Congrats!!!

    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!

    LOL, yep
    AFAIK, she didn't draw blood on anyone. She's had a LOT of practice in her years over the nursing program.

    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.
    Congrats, Paul.  I can tell you from my recent experiences that while it was the docs who prescribed the treatments and the drugs, it was the nurses who got me through it all and who knew a heck of a lot more about what I needed than the docs did.  RNs are the real heroes of medicine.

    Thank you.
    As a matter of fact, I did. I also explained all about it to my 2 oldest grandsons (11 and 9) and let them know that when I'm dead and gone, one of them will be getting that razor.

    Ken, Doctors may order treatment, but it's nurses that get the stuff done. Glad you had good ones and I hope folks will feel the same way about my care.

    Thanks guys

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

    No joke. Daughter had a C avg. She also worked full time and lived on her own. Had that discussion with a few of the outlaws who were being less than kind.

    Congrats on getting through

    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Now just waiting on my "Authorization to test" from the state

    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

    Similar situation for me...

    I never claimed to be the greatest (or even just great) mechanic, but I worked with a guy who was an ASE certified master tech.  The dude held every certification that applies to turning wrenches... but could not find his own ass, even using both hands.  

    Congratulations KP!  Well done!

    We're all proud of you for toughing it out, Paul!  We know it's been a long, hard slog, but it's behind you now and there will only be better things ahead, including more $$$ for your gun fund!  Super good job, dude !!
