I am so lucky. I have worked with some really amazing people in the Southwest Cancer center over the past nearly three years. Today was my last day, and it was bitter-sweet. I am so excited about my future, but I am sad to leave such a great place. My sister is super sneaky and planned a going away lunch and it was so much fun:)
My awesome cake
My sister got everyone to sign an apron, which I thought was really neat
The best boss ever!
Crazy infusion peeps:)
Sister who put it all together:)
Love you all!
Thank you for all the great memories over the past few years and for helping me become the nurse I am today. Sad to see things end, but excited for a new beginning:)
I love that look I get from people where I know they are thinking, “who arrre you?”
I don’t blame them though…me in high school
a little different I would say:)
It’s like everyone always says but I never really believe, ” You will blink and it will be over.”…nursing school that is.
I remember the exact moment I found out I had been accepted in the Texas Tech nursing program. I was working back in the infusion area at the cancer center and knew I should be finding out soon. I checked my email and much to my delight I had an email letter of acceptance. Boy, I don’t think I realized how much this would change my life. I was excited/scared/freaked out/soo happy/a million other emotions.
I remember orientation and the overwhelming feeling of, “What did I get myself into?”
First day of nursing school:)
I remember studying almost 24/7 that first summer session and feeling overwhelmed at times. I also remember though, meeting some of the nursing school peeps that would become what I hope to be life long friends.
I remember long long study nights/project nights/youtube video nights (ha). For a real laugh, go here:
I remember clinical days to where I thought I would never ever finish, or really be able to be a real nurse, or know what I was doing.
BUT…I made it, and it really do feel like I blinked and it was over. Most of the time I feel like this is a great thing;)…I just don’t want to blink too fast in the future.
Last clinical day!:)
