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?”
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.
