….And exhaling…

Well the tallies are in:

Open Book Exam: 97%

Closed Book Exam:  92% (grrrrr, damn that B)

History and Examination OSCE: 100%

Assessment and Plan OSCE:  100%

Lab and Medicine OSCE:  96%

Immunization OSCE:  100%

Which overall averages to an “A!” on my final exams which makes me very happy.  The things I missed were minor and on the closed book exams, there were only 20 questions which counted off more thus dropping my grade to a 92!  I got two different diagnoses mixed up.

Dammit!

Oh well, I’m just happy all of that is behind me for a while.  The rest of the week we’re doing EMS refresher stuff which is always fun.

We all did well except for one student who, upon hearing that she failed one of the exams; promptly booked an earlier flight home.  I drove her to the airport because I’m the only student whose corporation actually rented her a car to drive…(because my boss rocks!)  She told me that she was kicked out of the program…but what the director told us all this morning was that she chose to leave.

Which is just dumb.  Obviously, the instructors were willing to work with her so that she could ultimately pass the course…they had no intention of ousting her from the program.  The fact that she quit with just four more days to spare really cheesed me off.  Apparantly she wanted to save face with the five other students in the class.  Sad.

And really?  We all knew she was doomed when she would sit in class and text under the table, would doodle on her notebook, roll her eyes when we had to do scenarios, and NEVER did her homework.

This is an adult we’re talking about here…a woman who CHOSE to be here which is what really blows my mind.  She treated it like it was a high school class.  Like these past four weeks were a prison sentence.  I don’t understand it and I’m glad I don’t.

Anyway, the roomies and I are going out to a fancy restaurant tonight to celebrate all of us doing well on our finals and tomorrow night, we’ll be cleaning fools in between grilling our hotdogs and cooking the last of our combined groceries.

Friday we finish up with EMS, We will have our final evaluation from our advisors, the director will say a few words, then we fly out of here Friday evening.

We’re all joking about who’s going to get to the check-in counter first!
