The HESI or exit exam is this Friday. I'm trying to look over anything that I'm not quite sure of with just a little bit of time left to do it. It's nerve wracking that we must pass this test to graduate. The good news is we get two tries. If after two tries and don't pass we can remediate over the summer and try again.

I'll write more after I take the test and let you know how it goes.

Twenty-two days to graduation. Hooo-ah.

Good luck in your chosen profession! I, too, was a midlife nursing student (36 when I started and 39 when I finished) and don't regret for single day doing it. Now I have 15 years under my belt, have a management job I love where I can influence policy and change - and the salary's almost 3 times what I made before school.

A word to the wise: take out malpractice insurance on your own; I've been lucky to never need it, but in these days of "fill-in-the-blank" documentation, your notes will be the only thing to save you later on.

And, good luck on your boards!

Thank you, Lynn. I think I'm going to like my new career and, yeah, I really enjoy the pay bump.

Thanks for reminding me to get malpractice insurance. I'll get on that just as soon as I get through HESI.
