Busy getting organized....

I dropped Chad off at the airport this morning. Traffic was pretty busy....but we arrived in plenty of time. I still don't think it has hit me that I will be away for 4 months (ok, it's probably only 3.5 months by now, as my last final is December 14th.....It's lonely here without him and I'm sure the house is pretty quite without me. It is nice to hear Julio the Cat meow in the background while I'm on the phone with Chad.
This afternoon, I organized my calendar and have all the assignments, readings, school breaks and exams written in. Luckily the exams are not on the same days, with at least 2 days between exams. It should be interesting.
Tomorrow I start class at 8am with ethics, followed by physiology. The afternooon consists of chemistry and pharmacology. I'm sure my head will be spinning by the end of the day......

Hi Jennie..I ahve been following your blog and this is very great site. I have my interview for an anesthesia program in two weeks and despite having tons of critical care experience I am still nervous about the interview. Any tips? Could you post any specific questions you may recall? Any clinical questions? I believe my school is interviewing for 2007 but i am going to push to be on standby for 2006. I am now taking my core classes and prereqs to get them out of the way. My classes start 29th and i am also taking ethics plus law. Thanks in advance, Debbie

Debbie,
Sounds like you have great clinical experience. I will keep my fingers crossed for January. Interview questions will depend on where you are interviewing. www.allnurses.com is where I received most of my interview advice, along with students who are currently in the programs I applied to. My best advice is to review the CCRN review manual and to not try to BS your way through the interview. If you do not know the answer to a question, be willing to admit it. They will see through your attempts if you are trying to flub your way through an answer.
