Exams, Assignments and End of Semester 1

It's been a couple of weeks since I have updated. A couple of crazy weeks. I've almost finished my first semester with just two exams and one practical test to go. I'm still loving nursing school, but am ready for a break.

This last part has probably been the hardest for me as I've been going through a bad bout of insomnia. Until a week or two ago I hadn't slept for more than an hour or two at a time, averaging 4-5 hours sleep a night. It really wasn't good. I was unable to speak properly or form a sentence and on one day realised that I missed my bus stop an hours ride from the stop! During this period I had my vital signs practical exam, which I failed. I couldn't even hold anything without dropping it. A nightmare.

I'm sleeping a little better now, which is fantastic. I've also been studying a lot in the hopes I will get some good exam results. So far I have been really pleased with how I have gone with my assignments and that the work I have been putting in has paid off.

Hi,

This is the assistant editor for Hospital.com which is a medical publication offering hospital news, information and reviews. We also cover a wide variety of medical topics, some of these articles being relevant to nursing schools and issues around their prospective students (scholarships, grants, etc). We are in the process of giving the nursing industry a dedicated section from our site and are currently seeking online resources which can be offered to our readers of this section. If possible I would like Hospital.com to be included within your blog roll, offering our information as a resource to your readers and essentially building a relationship between our sites. Please let me know if this addition can be made, Thanks!

Please email me back with your URL in subject line to take a step ahead and to avoid spam.

Thank you
