I <3 being able to say I'm a nurse; however, I need to pass boards to be more than just a graduate nurse.

I don't have a lot of time because I should not be on the computer--I should be studying. I got my ATT (authorization to test) which allowed me to set my test date for boards, d-day is May 26 at 0800. Just breath. I see the date and it makes me cringe. I have been a really good student throughout nursing school, there is no real reason I should have a ton of fears about failing boards; however, I am scared shitless. I am trying to study around 5 hours a day, I started my boards study schedule officially today. I also studied an extra 2 and a half hours yesterday. I have a 700 page NCLEX review book to make it through in 2 weeks. Holy crap.

Anyways, let's talk about positive things. I mentioned before that I graduated, woo-hoo for me! Here are a few of pictures from my pinning:

Here is me with my wonderful parents:

Here are the two Vesey nurses. I <3 my Mama:

Me and my Daddy:

This is me and my bestest school friend Meghan, she is due to have a little baby girl in July:

This is the present from my Mom, it was her necklace and she has passed the torch on to me so to speak:

Anyways, I am now off to McCalisters for a little dinner and to study and if I still have energy I will head next door to books a million to continue. Yuck, but it is a means to an end. Happy Monday you all.

Agree with Annie, that's a wonderful gift to pass on!

I just know you'll do perfect on your boards! I'd be nervous too though.

You and your mom look a lot alike.
