I am currently in my OB rotation... or as I like to call it "babies and vaginas." I have only had a rotation in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) so far, so I really do not know how I feel about it, yet. I really liked NICU, though... but, that's a given, because I find I just enjoy intensive care unit nursing in general.
I still do not know where I want to work when I become a nurse, but I can tell you with certainty that I want to work in a hospital. Whether that ends up being on a medical surgical floor, an ICU, or the emergency room... I just want to work in the hospital. My clinical experiences have all been so fulfilling, and I haven't regretted pursuing nursing for one minute. I would be lying, though, if I said I loved nursing school... because I don't. I hate it, but it is a means to an end, and it will get me to my dream career... my calling. I do believe I was meant for nursing.
I decided to grow my pixie cut out a little over 2 months ago. So, for visuals I will post my grow out process so far :)
This is when I decided to grow
This is 4 weeks later
This is another 4 weeks later
This is 5 weeks after that
So, we are on the grow. I like my hair short, and it seems I go through two year cycles for cutting it off into a pixie. As I am getting older, though, I don't want the typical short haircut for older women, ya know? So, I think from here on out I want to keep it at least shoulder length and styled. I'm glad I am chronicling the grow out process, though. I like to see the progress. My hair seems to grow at the expected 1/2 inch per month. It doesn't grow fast or slow... just normal.
Anyway. enough with the boring stuff. I hope everyone else is doing well. I can't wait to be done with nursing school. December 2016 cannot get here quick enough. Just a little over 1 year and 2 1/2 semesters.
