About Me

undergrad RN
I'm a twenty-something Canadian student. After stumbling through a few years of college, I finally managed to get into the nursing school of my dreams, where I hope to graduate in 2012 with a nursing baccalaureate degree. I want to offer an honest look into how a modern nurse is educated, both good and bad. Eventually I hope to compare my education to my day-to-day career and see how it holds up. Whatever happens, it should be somewhat entertaining. Find me on allnurses.com!

Hey, You! Spam Guy!

I (and every other blogger I know) have been getting a lot of email requests asking me advertise or repost things I do not care about or wish to endorse. I do not make any money off this blog - any endorsements I may make are strictly because I am personally pleased with the results.

I DO NOT and WILL NOT repost anything someone emails me. If I want to link to something, I will find it myself.

It's 2009 and I have 2 days left!

Mixed feelings abound.

I'm really excited to get back to school and 'do it right' this semester by keeping on top of the readings and study guides instead of pounding it all into my skull the week before a big exam, and by actually making an attempt to review each class every day (or at least every other day) instead of just one day a week.

On the other hand, my honey is going back to his college dorm in Farawayville and I just got used to having him home.

On the other other hand, my WoW character is level 79 so clearly my Christmas break wasn't wasted. C'mon, 80 before school starts! Can I do it? We shall see. I'm tempted to keep my account active for a few weeks into school to see if I can be reasonable about playing. It's just such a great stress reliever (certainly better than vegging out in front of the TV) and I usually feel pumped after playing, instead of like a couch zombie.

I logged into Blackboard today to see if they had me updated for my new term. I wanted to get the readings done this weekend so that way I could be a step ahead. I'm not the New Year's Resolution type but I guess my new strategy kind of fits into the category. I'm determined!

Of course they don't have it updated. I doubt if anyone was even in the office yesterday. However my Nursing Practice Foundations class (the one with clinicals) released the placement assignments! Out of 8 possible assignments (some in other counties) I got the one I wanted - sweet! The extra-lucky part is that they never asked for our preferences or even if we drive or not. I'm in a good spot because my house is en route to several hospitals via public transit, and as I've mentioned before, I am in no financial position to purchase a car. Besides, dad, borrowing yours is free! Still, if I had been stuck with driving 20 minutes on the freeway to get to clinical, that would have been a problem.

So this particular hospital is the best of the lot for me to get to by transit, as the bus is on 15 minute frequency, the stop is right outside my house, it runs super early and super late, and it takes just over 15 minutes to get to the hospital. Could this be any better? I think not!
