Well... The semester ended and I didn't destroy my GPA. And then when I was just about to give up on the hunt for a job in the medical field I got hired by one of the best hospitals in the area! It just goes to show that everything works out in the end!
This week (well the past few weeks) I have allowed my inner procrastinator to really pull one over on me. This week was the last time to take the TEAS test to get into the nursing program at the University here, and I almost blew it. Thanks to others trying to cram in final attempts (everyone one else was going for their second or third times and it was my first) I was able to squeeze into the very last session that they opened up! But last night I was in a panic, and so scared that I would not do well on this test. I could hardly sleep (not a good way to prepare yourself for a major examination), and I was so worried that I would blow my chances of getting into the program by not being prepared enough.
I cannot even tell you how many times I prayed in the last 24 hours, and as far as I'm concerned it worked! I did quite well on it! maybe not as well as I had hoped, but I really think it will be enough! Monday I will turn in my application and then I will have to wait until mid May to find out if I made the cut or not.
All in all I would say that the test wasn't even as difficult as I had imagined and probably could have taken it during the spring semester, but I truly didn't have the time to study for anything other than my classes and it probably is best that I did study a bit (I certainly didn't want to pay the $80 fee more than once unless absolutely necessary.
It's such a frightening thing to have your whole life and future hanging in someone else's hands. But at this point I have done my best and hope that it is enough!
