I miss being able to actually write blog posts. Even though they weren't that exciting, and were really only for me to reread I miss having time to write them.
There's four weeks left of the summer semester. Then I'm moving into my fourth and FINAL semester of nursing school!! Whooo feels good to say that. This summer I had maternity, mental heatlh and now I'm in peds. This fall I'll have management, critical care and community health. Among some other bogus online classes. But I'm sooooo close to the end. I'm making plans about my graduation trip (probably Orlando and then maybe somewhere further south with a beach!), and trying to decide when I'm going to take the NCLEX (before my trip or after).
Then of course there's the whole business of finding a job and actually managing to get hired. Which honestly is stressing me out to no end. I don't like uncertainty... I would really like to know where I will be working next year and to that end where I will be living! What bugs me most is that I can't seem to decide what unit I even want to work on, much less what city or hospital. Part of me knows that I need to be a labor and delivery nurse to get in hospital experience... but I fear that I won't be able to get a job there. ER is my other love, and it would be a great way to get a ton of experience doing IV starts, blood draws, caths, etc, etc. So I'm torn. Also.. will anyone even hire me?!? Luckily I've got the job I have now and I'll be able to take on more once I'm actually an RN so that's at least something.
Anyways.. a small update on my life. Mostly I can't believe its the middle of June and I'll be graduating in less than 5 months!!
