In my 1st quarter of Nursing school. I know, I know. I have a WAYS to go... The time is flying by so quickly, but I don't think it can ever go fast enough to finally get to Graduation.
I need to stop and enjoy the journey a little bit more, to get to the destination ;)
As I was in my evening English composition class contemplating a final topic for my Compare and contrast paper (ended up deciding to do it on Hitler and the Holocaust..) I was lost in thought for a moment staring at the classroom across from ours.. Those students who were in the Labor and delivery Nursing class. (Which happens to be my field I am going into when I graduate) Jealous as all can be. I wish I were in there, not sitting in a boring composition class. I wish I were at the point of doing my Clinicals and rounds, even if it is 36 hours a week of non paid working, which very well may be the most difficult part of the program, I don't mind at all. Having to get up 3 days a week to be at he Hospital by 4 or 5 am. I just cannot wait! Staring October 4th, I will be in full Nursing mode..And only 1 non-related general class, trigonometry. My first Nursing class will be Nursing Fundamentals I.
Sometimes, I still have to pinch myself, realizing I am finally where I have wanted to be for as long as I can remember. Getting here was beyond difficult, but I made it and it's just the beginning! Can't wait to see what's in store for next quarter. I came across these shirts today from a group I am a fan of on FB, The sarcasm shop I WANT this one in particular. It's perfect, and so true. Being a mother of 2 and a Full-time Nursing student, I have given up a lot. But the payoff will be so worth it. Can't wait to get into Clinicals and assist with my first delivery. Excitement for Nursing school!
I love this one as well:
