Have to share.... I am being honored

  1. I served our class in an officer position as Mentor since Fundamentals.

    We finished on Thursday and I just found out tonight that the class voted to honor me at pinning.

    They are honoring me because of all the work I put in to tutoring and mentoring ( most of) the class for the last 2 years.

    It supposedly was going to be a surprise but they know I am an emotional person so they forewarned me.. LOL


    Let me tell you THIS is what it is all about. I will eventually forget about the stress and the tests and the riff raff.......but I will always remember being honored.

    Wow.

    Truthfully now that I know I dont know HOW I will NOT SOB on stage. Just THINKING about it makes me sob.

    Wow.

    Wow.

    Get you a box of Kleenex, leave off runny makeup, pre-record a message on a mini-recorder in case you cannot speak (LOL), and ENJOY. You obviously mean a lot to your class for them to do this. You are right, it is about this. I too help out my class and I honestly get nearly as much pleasure from helping someone understand something or grasp a concept as I do from helping patients. GOOD luck in your endeavors and keep up having such a giving a caring heart.


    CONGRATS TO YOU.........

    Just practice smiling and nodding your acknowledgment. I can usually maintain composure if I keep quiet. Once I engage the vocal cords, though, all bets are off.

    Keep in mind: They love you so don't feel badly if your emotions overwhelm you; they'll still love you.

    Congratulations again. I love stories where the good guys win!

    Congratulations. That is wonderful. You are right, that is what nursing is all about. You are going to be a fantastic nurse. You have the caring and helping spirit from your head to the tips of your toes.

    Take care,
    Jean

    Too bad for me!!! I stayed up all night with my fellow students to help. Now that we're on vacation, nobody even calls me. They did not even say thanks.

    That's terrible. I cant even imagine how that must feel. My class didnt " come together" really until the last semester...I see you grad in '08. I certainly hope your classmates are respectful enough by then to thank you for your hard work.
