I am about to start my 6th quarter of a 7 quarter ADN and every quarter about the last 2 weeks I barely have any energy and can hardly wait to be done. I just tell myself, I can do this and keep the goal in the front of my mind. It worked better this last quarter and now I am almost done. I agree, I think actually working will be so much better, I work two part time jobs now and they are a lot more fun than school. I am also not a young student, I am on my 3rd career and am 55 years young. I love every minute of helping people achieve better health. Of course there are the sad times, when you lose someone, but I take heart in knowing I held their hand and watched them pass from this world to the next and I was there for them. I just love nursing!!!!
