Hi guys... or to the one or two people who may accidentally read this blog still. I did it. I finished my 4th semester of nursing school. Out of all of the semesters this was my favorite one. I was not stressed out of my mind and I felt like I learned a TON.
Now I am on summer break. I decided to take a job as a nursing assistant at one of our hospitals. I work on the cardiac medical surgical floor. I really like it. This kind of work is what I was meant for, and sometimes I get really sad when I think about how long it took me to figure this out, but I am just glad I did figure it out.
So far summer has been pretty uneventful with only a few trips to Silver Dollar City and adjusting to working overnights. I do have a small vacation planned. August 5-9 when I will be going to south Texas to see my brother and aunts and uncles. This should be a nice break before I start back for my 5th and final semester of nursing school.
Nursing school starts back up for me August 15. That date will be here before I know it. I am nervous and excited. I am not for certain how it will effect my working, but I am going to try and keep working while I am in school. Eight weeks into my semester I will begin my capstone clinical. This will entail me working full time in the hospital under a nurse preceptor. I am hoping this experience will lead me to what I want to do as a nurse.
So far I am interested in Cardiac, Postpartum, Pediatrics, Emergency, and ICU nursing. Time will tell, but I am really excited about what the future holds. I begin applying for graduate nurse positions in August. Life is about to become really busy.
For now, that's it. Sorry, no pictures. You can follow my IG account, although I don't use it a lot, I do post the occasional picture. Amyschmamey!
