1/3 of the way done

this semester anyways. And I verily dislike these courses. I don't like community health - and learning about health care reform is confusing to me (I'm Canadian remember, we don't need health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare - we get universal health care regardless) yet I have to understand this stuff if I have a prayers chance of passing.

At face value my english course rules - we have pretty awesome books to read (for the most part) - such as Briget Jones' Diary and The Hunger Games - and we have to read Pride & Prejudice (to name a few) which although that sounds good has vocabulary that is tricky to understand and is long! We have papers as well as exams that I have to pass. And I have to compare and contrast one book with another. Sounds easy enough... but then there's also the nursing coursework that has to be completed - and anyone who has gone through nursing school knows that the coursework is extreme.

So it's a tricky balancing act. I'm not entirely sure that I manage it very well to be truthful. But I plug away at it one day, one week at a time.

Goodness I can't wait til this is all done!!!

  1. Yay! Celebrate the small milestones as they happen, like being 1/3 of the way done. You will be able to complete al of it, just keep doing what you're doing. I totally understand having nursing and "regular" school to do and it's tough but we will survive.

    As far as community health goes, I hated that class too. To me, it's nice for the patient that people are bringing nursing and health care into the home setting. However, the course and the dumbness of the course itself is enough to make any nursing student question their choice of nursing as a profession. I survived it, though, and you will too.
