The next phase of my NB will be starting soon. I now I have just 19 days until my last final exam, 25 days until my pinning ceremony, and 26 days until my graduation ceremony.

I'm less than a month away from finishing the degree I started 4 years ago when I saw the end of my marriage looming.

And doing some grade calculations unless I really mess up my final exams (like not taking them) I won't fail my classes ... So I'm really gonna do it.

I'll hopefully be able to post pics of pinning and graduation.

I cannot believe that after all of this time, and all of the stress, sweat, and tears (mine) as well as all of the blood, urine, stool, and vomit (my patients') that I am actually going to graduate!

Today is my last lecture for this degree. From here on out it is all a matter of turning things in, doing oral presentations, and taking tests. That's it. No more classes after today.

18 days until my last final exam and 24 days until pinning.


Thank you all soooooo much! The support and the encouragement I've gotten here has been invaluable in helping me get to this point. You guys and gals are the very bestest!

Don't sell yourself (or this goal) short.. YOU did all the work. We just stood around and posted.

Congrats on a job well done.

Woot! Woot!
