HI everyone! Well, I applied for a job in a local hospital that has a GREAT Nurse-tech program. The only thing is, you have to be in your second semester to qualify. Since I am just starting my first, I thought it would be a good idea to get my foot in the door, so I applied for a clinical-tech position. Of course, I'll only work 20 hours, and I know that with Nursing school and family, even that will be difficult, but not impossible.
Today was the first day of High School for my oldest son, and the first day of middle school for my youngest. They were so impressed with their new schools, and so excited about the coming year! It's funny, because I too LOVED High school my first day, two years later I thought it was a prison!
I'm very excited that classes for me start next Tuesday. I've been reading ahead and trying to teach myself how to take vitals. Can't seem to find that 5th intercostal space on the first tries yet, though! Maybe it's harder when your practicing on yourself, ya'think?
Anyway, as of today I am on pins and needles. I wish next Tuesday would get here already! Drinking lots of chamomile tea, and listening to soothing music in an attempt to calm myself. It's not a bad type of nervousness, rather it's impatience and excitement. I do admit however, that every once in awhile a feeling comes over me. A small voice in my head saying.. "Do you REALLY think you can do this?" and I squash it down and remind myself that I had a 4.0 in all my science classes, and that I have a pretty level head. genuinely care about my fellow-man and have always been a critical thinker. Hell YEAH! I tell that voice in my head. I WILL do this. And I will do it well.
