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.

Staying Positive

The deadline for my UNE submission has been changed to April 15 (Thursday). I still have a fair shot. I'm getting the form from my instructor tomorrow when I turn in my third and final (!) care plan for this semester.

I'm feeling a lot more positive and relaxed now. I've got a huge emotional investment riding on being accepted into AHS. I'm scared and excited and hopeful.

When people ask me what I do, I am so proud to say I am in nursing school.

Every day I am making a difference to someone and I am so, SO, in love with my profession. I have never had a doubt in the last 2 years that I was making the right choice. Everything that I see and do has been inspiring and challenging to me. Menial tasks like fetching water or changing linens have never bothered me. I have been privileged to help people in their times of medical and emotional need. I am in a trusted position and people listen to me, really listen, when I speak to them. I work hard to hear what they have to say.

It has been a long journey and I'm only halfway there, but this opportunity to begin embracing my chosen role is one that I have been waiting a lifetime for and I am so ready to get started.
