Happy Monday, y’all! I hope today has been a good one for you all! Today I’ll be talking about my thoughts and reflection after getting withdrawn from the nursing program back in the fall.
So it’s been almost 4 months since I was withdrawn from the nursing program back in the Fall. It’s crazy how time has flown by so fast, yet so slow. I’m currently studying for the entrance exam and while it has been going good, it has been a bit depressing in the sense that I’m having to do this again BUT I know it’s for a good result in the end.
I don’t put myself on a schedule to study, but it definitely is still my duty to study for at least 2 hours a day so I don’t forget or cramp a week or so before the entrance exam. It’s still important and a bit of a priority to do good and only have to take it once even though I’ll claim two spots just in case.
Since withdrawing from the program, I’ve gotten to take care of myself more mentally, emotionally and physically. I’ve gotten back into YouTube. I’ve gotten more active on my Instagram account and gotten to know some awesome future nurses on there. I’ve been slowly getting back into my blog. My living space has been cozier and my relationships have been great. Things have been going good so far and I hope it stays that way.
I’m excited to get back into the program and whatever happens from here on out will be and what won’t be, won’t. One thing I noticed after nursing school was that I prioritized nursing before my own health and the health of my relationships outside of nursing school, I noticed that I was more into my book and laptop than my loved ones. That’s not healthy. I was prioritizing nursing school as my number one thing and didn’t acknowledge my loved ones I almost felt like I abandoned them cold turkey and that’s something I don’t want to do or go through again. It sucks. I’ll manage my time in a healthy manner and while I’ll prioritize nursing school, I’ll prioritize it in a more healthier way that’s not messing with me mentally, physically and emotionally. I know I’ll have to make sacrifices, but I know it’ll only be temporary and for a permanent result in the end, but I’ll definitely make more time as I can with my loved ones and take better care of myself physically, emotionally and mentally.
I’m excited to start this chapter in my life and see where it takes me and while I still have till April to sign up for the entrance exam, I’m studying in moderate amounts to get a good grade and taking care of myself mentally, physically and emotionally.
I hope y’all enjoyed this quick and short reflection on nursing school and the aftermath. 🙂
Happy Monday, y’all!
