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.

If you want to spread the word about something, make your own blog!

All spam received at my blog email is deleted without reading.

C25K, legitimately!

Hi everybody :) 
a) Yes, still here
b) Yes, still in nursing school! 
c) Yes, still busy as hell. 

I did however have time today to run my very first 5K.

Drofen aka NurseXY inspired me some months ago to try the Couch to 5K program, with great success! I am only on Week 7 of the program; I was able to run most of the 5K with 3(ish?) walking breaks to bring my HR back down from the mid-170s.

Total time: 0:36:15, with an approximate 12:00/mile pace, which would be at least a minute off of my fastest training time and running on the road to boot! (I have an unhealthy attachment to my treadmill at 2% incline)

I miss everyone! I miss blogging! I shall return with some excellent nursing school stories... (or pictures, and those are worth at least 1.5 stories each ;)

Also, I am soon-to-be volunteering in Emerg! Oh, thank goodness. I feel like real nursing skills are missing from my day to day.

I have, however, been creeping all of your blogs. Thanks for the nursing fix. I can't BELIEVE that so many of you are already RNs or nearly there! I have 2 years to go! 


No, seriously, congratulations. Now hurry up and pick a specialty and write about it so I can make up my mind!

As an aside, I have discovered several unmoderated comments which will be moderated within minutes. Sorry about that... I don't delete any comments except spam ones, but I don't check the older posts as often as I ought.
