It's been a good week.
We were given our semester schedules, and I am very excited for what the next 4 months hold for me. We have clinical rotations scheduled up in Salt Lake during the last month of class, where I'll get to experience working at a psych hospital, a children's' hospital, and intensive care units.
It's going to be a great intro to life in a large city hospital.
Not to mention, we are finally implementing 12 hour clinical shifts (though honestly they're going to add up to about 9 hour shifts between student meetings and food breaks).
People are already talking about signing up for the NCLEX-RN, and my optimistic anxieties are starting to rev their engines.
I'm half thrilled and half terrified to be at this point.
Am I ready to be a graduated nurse in 4 months?
Maybe I'll run away to Disney World to treasure my last few months of 'childhood'.
That sounds pretty good to me.
