Since my last blog post, I've started to work a lot. I'm grateful that I'm employed, and that the money I make covers my bills. It is a lot though. I don't really have a lot of free time, but it helps the days go by faster til I graduate. I work in an assisted living facility, and I really do enjoy going to work every day. I take care of two residents that were nurses for 40+ years a piece. I am honored to care for them. To dedicate your entire career to the care of another. They come from a different time in nursing though- they will tell you that. It's really interesting to listen to them speak about all sorts of stuff they use to do. It makes me really proud that I chose the profession that I did. 69 more days!

Well, 80 days left until graduation. That's it! I have 45 hours of precepting to do, and I get to do that in ICU. I'm proud that I have gotten this far. It has been a very long hard road. A lot of stuff has happened since then. I have seen people die, held their hand while they passed, and then comforted their family. I made friends with Bill, moved out on my own, and started going to the gym. I have learned to respect myself again. I have learned a deep respect for my profession. I look back at the last three years and I am not sure where all of the time went. I am glad that it went fast. Nursing school about drove my ass crazy, but it's almost over!

New semester!

Clinicals started on Tuesday. I'm at a different hospital this semester, and it is totally different. There are papers MAR's, a totally different floor layout, and different policies. I love it! They've started really layin it on us that we are about to graduate. I am starting to come to that realization too. I've started on my resume, and I am going to apply for some out of town jobs. I have seen a few jobs with move bonuses.

Time to put my big girl pants on!
