first clinical skills check off = passed.

If you remember back to not so long ago we I started nursing school, I was super freaking nervous about my abilities and whether I would completely fail and all. Remember that? Well guess what!

I passed my first clinical skills check off!

There are literally no words to describe how completely relieved I am. I was extremely nervous. I somehow got matched up with one of the professors that I didn’t really know that well, but who definitely gave off an intimidating vibe. Not even kidding you. I could not feel my arms. 

Clinical skills are really that important. If I had screwed up this early on.. Well, I probably would have started questioning my choice in careers. I don’t expect to be naturally perfect at nursing, but I did want some sign from God that it was at least meant to be. 

Thank you, Jesus, for looking out for me. Air-five! As soon as the clinical skills check was over, this huge weight was lifted off of me. School is definitely going to get a lot harder, but it doesn’t seem so impossible. 

Now, summer session is ending and fall semester is looming. I was told this is the worst semester of nursing school. I can’t imagine the terror all of us will feel during those clinical skills check offs… Yikes. All I can ask is for good thoughts and prayers. Lots of prayers. I’m gonna need them.
