Here I sit at my computer after the first day of my final semester before I officially become an RN. Well, if I pass boards. I can hardly believe that it is so incredibly close. It is one of those situations in which you feel as if it is taking forever when you are in the midst of it, then when the end is finally in sight it seems as if time has just flown by. Even more amazing is the fact that I can't believe that I will actually be caring for patients in no time at all. I feel so unprepared. I hear that it is common for all graduates to feel this way.
