my ducks are lined up...

Well, I passed my second test yesterday that I needed to pass for Hoag...surprisingly! Dang it was a hard Pharm test. You could miss 12 questions to pass, and I missed 11, *blush* close, wasn't I?? So, I have completed the tests, took my drug screen test, and other health tests yesterday. I'm assuming I've passed all. So, I do believe they're stuck with me. Now I have to find somewhere to get a flu shot, or I have to wear a mask when caring for my bloody patients! Egad. I'll get the H1N1 tomorrow, even though I swear, I had that flu! So I have a bunch of last minute errands to get done before I start work on Monday. It will be orientation classes all next week, and start my preceptoring the following week. I am excited, and also scared *%^%$*less. Ah well, me of little faith. I'm working on it.

That's it for now, other than my 18 y.o. getting her drivers licence. And still worrying when she drives off. Though I know she's being careful, she is also easily distracted. Such a strange year this is going to be. Me, working full time for the first time in a hundred years (though nursing school totally had the same or more hours!), my daughter graduating high school, and starting college, and my baby in high school. Yup, strange year.

I know you are nervous but you will do great!!!!! That is the one thing about being a new grad is they expect you to ask a lot of questions and need a lot of help.. heck I have been a nurse for 13yrs and I still ask a lot of questions!! They would rather you ask a dozen then be over confident and mess up....

As for the 18yr old I soooo understand. Our oldest just started driving this past May and I still worry when he takes off and until he gets home. Wonder if this will end anytime soon?? He is almost 19!
