New nurse, new project. Well, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves, shall we?
I'm still in school. But everyday brings me a little bit closer to graduation (this December), and as I'm well aware of the masses of 20-somethings (and 30, 40, and 50-somethings) starting out in Accelerated Second Degree programs for Nursing, I thought I might have a market here. If not? Well, that's fine too. I want to remember for myself what these days were like.
I want to share my day-to-day life in (and outside of!) nursing school, dispel rumors and myths about the rigors that this type of education brings, and talk about the real stuff. I want to address issues that I've had and am having (like why, despite my previous experience as a phlebotomist, glowing recommendations from clinical instructors, high GPA, and all around good nature, I can't get a job taking vital signs and giving baths).
I've recently really gotten into reading other people's blogs-- from codeblog to CF stories, this type of expressive informational medium left me interested and envious. I want to share my stories too! With a little nudging from my BFF back home, this blog was born.
