Ok, like Bex suggested, I'm starting a "get to know you" thread here! Here goes....
My name's Maeyken (sounds kinda like Meaghan, but not really).
I'm finishing up my 2nd year of a 4yr BScN at McMaster University in Hamilton. (just 2 more exams left, then free for the summer!!!!!)
Well, not really free cuz there's work. I'm hoping to work at a nursing home this summer, to "Improve My Basic Nursing Skills and Learn How To Prioritize" Or that's the goal... I should hear back from them any day now.... I really hope I get the job, cuz otherwise I need to start looking elsewhere!
I decided to become a nurse because it got to the point in highschool where we had to decide what we wanted to do with the rest of our lives, and I had no clue. I knew I wanted to do something in the healthcare field cuz medicine has always fascinated me. And I didn't want to take science in university! (and my dad basically told me that people who go to university do not get jobs, so I went into nursing to prove that's not true!) But since I decided on nursing, I haven't had any (wait, no, many
second thoughts). So I consider it a good decision!
I don't know what area of nursing I want to go into yet (suggestions are welcomed!!) At this point, I *think* I wanna work in a hospital.
Umm.... what else... I like kittens, they are cute and cuddly... we have a cat at my parent's place but she is not cuddly or cute- just really fat and lazy. And she hates people. I also think fish are cool, but I've never had any. I think I'd accidentally kill them!
I like to do "old lady crafts" as my one friend calls them- quilting, knitting, crossstitch(sp???) I also like to read but I don't have time anymore it seems! (
exams!) I got the LOTR trilogy for my BD, so I'm working on that now.
Ok, who's next??
