One of the best things you can do at the end of the year is to review it. That’s right, flip through your pocket calendar or your digital schedule of the last 365 days and see what worked and what bombed. That way you’ll be able to plan for a fuller, richer, less stressful 2014.

I am now in week #7 of the program, almost halfway through the orientation process, and it has been everything I wanted from nursing school and so much more. There are days where we feel like we’re back in school with lectures, PowerPoints, and exams. Then when we are on our various units—not as students or helpers, but as the actual nurse giving patient care and putting our critical thinking to work—all the sacrifices, the long hours studying, the lack of sleep, and the chaos of interviewing is worth it. Here is a breakdown of what to expect during your first eight weeks.
