Quote of the Day: "We are still masters of our fate. We are still captains of our souls." --Winston Churchill
I got some really great, really exciting news today! On Friday I had to go to Vernon for a test-taking skills class, which they use to teach us how to take the HESI test, which is coming up. You know, the test which we have to pass in order to graduate? We had a "mock" HESI test on Friday, which was supposed to give us an idea of what we need to study in order to pass the HESI. They posted the grades today, and guess what??? I GOT THE HIGHEST GRADE! Well, one other person scored the same as me, but whoever that was, we got the highest grade. Do you want to know what's really sad? I got a 79 on it. The majority of the class scored between 61 and 70 on it. I guess that means that I have an okay chance of passing the HESI! I still have a lot of studying to do, but it kind of takes some of the pressure off me. WHEW!!!!
My job interview went well today, so I'm thankful for that. The problem is, I have to go to ANOTHER interview on Friday, the peer interview. The one where other nurses from the floor sit down and interview me to make sure that I would be a good "match" for them. I am sooooooo nervous!!! This will be the third interview.... I am running out of ideas for "interview clothes". To be honest, it's completely stressing me out because I want it so badly. I have no idea what time my interview will be, because she is supposed to call me with a time once she gets everything settled. But we'll see. I told her anytime at all on Friday is fine with me because I don't have class on that day. I will be ready whenever! I feel like I can take on the WORLD today and not even blink!
Other than that, I received a call from Eva, the secretary of the Nursing Program at Vernon College, to let me know that my current TB test is about to expire and I need a new one. So I drove down to the Health Department and got the TB innoculation. Now I just have to get it read, which I will do on Friday either before or after my interview. It'll be the last one I'll be required to get for the school, but I'll still have to get them for work. Plus, my CPR certification is up in August, so I'll have to go to CPR class... again. Sigh. That's okay, though, it'd be a good refresher to have. Who knows, they may have changed the rules again.
