I just had orientation last week. It really made everything seem REAL
instead of just a dream, does that make sense? It was also great to see people who have been in my pre-req classes who made it in to the program. We have a lot of paperwork to complete between now and July 7th. Background check, fingerprinting, vaccination records, etc.
I ordered my scrubs for nursing school on Friday and they said it would take 3 weeks to arrive because they have to get custom-embroidered with our school's logo. Picked up my stethoschope (Littman Classic SE II), medimeter, penlight & scissors. Just trying on the scrubs in the uniform shop made me feel like "I'm really on my way to being a nurse!" All that hard work of pre-reqs is behind us now
Now, nursing school is looming ahead. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.
You are correct, it definitely felt like being a kid on Christmas Eve! We're having Orientation Part #2 about 2 weeks before school starts. Can't wait for August to get here
Enjoy your orientation tomorrow. Can't wait to hear all about it!
