I'M DONE DONE DONE!!! This girl is OFFICIALLY done with her Master's program. If you recall, I had a formal graduation ceremony back in May, but still hadn't finished all my classes. Well.... I am now proud to say that I finished this past Thursday! WAHOOOO! Although the course load was lighter than any other semester I have had, the classes themselves were challenging (advanced pharmacology and advanced physical assessment). Moving on!! We also had a crash course for the NCLEX from Kaplan in the middle of the semester as well since we are all preparing to take it VERY soon!
It's crazy to think that I will be starting the DOCTORATE in the Fall. Things are moving fast, friends. Remember to take the time to promote self-care for your emotional and mental well-being!
In other news, the Ni Hao, Columbia!/Dígame programs had their graduation on Friday where we celebrated those who participated in the summer medical Chinese or medical Spanish language courses. Really grateful to have been taught by a NP student here at Columbia who is seriously #GOALS. Hoping all the resources I have accumulated from the past 8 weeks are put into good use when I am back in the clinical setting throughout my DNP and future career!
Definitely giving myself this weekend to take a breather before I dive into some kind of NCLEX study schedule. Have a great weekend, everyone!
