Dear Lord, I know we go through this everyday but please give me the knowledge as to why I actually wanted to go to nursing school. Lord, give me the strength to make it through those boring three hour lectures without going to sleep. Please give me the patience to make it through clinicals with instructors that can't give you the right answer and on the same note, give the nurses the ability to remember what it was like to be a student. Lord, give me the endurance to read all the assigned readings and to be able to remember them when I am taking a test where all the questions have four right answers. Please give my family and friends the ability to see that I really am on the edge of insanity. Finally, Lord, give me the vision to see that one day I will be a real nurse and I will never have to wear this ugly uniform again.
