Has anyone felt like me? I'm paying for my schooling out of pocket, and I still have to find uniforms in my size, complete my physical, and wait for my kit, name tag and previously ordered uniforms to come in.
This is my shuffle.
Friday morning, I was up and out the door at 730, to take my fiancee to work. I rushed to school, 45min away, to buy books. I stopped at my facility to see if my special order of uniforms were in. If they're not the number, or color, I can't buy it. Sadly, they were not. Never fear! My favorite uniform shop was near by. They ran out of my size in the color i needed. I ended up buying some nursing shoes and hosery. Bummed, I called my mom, to send me numbers of shops.
I pick up my fiancee around 1230, and we have lunch. I had a doctor's appointment at 1415. During lunch, I called all the uniform shops and they were out of my size as well. Stressing out to no belief, my fiancee calmed me down as we left for my doctors. I walk in to them telling me I had no appointment, and then sending me to a lab to draw blood. They always drew my blood and had me come in a few days later for reading. I couldn't make an appointment so I went Saturday morning. After waiting for almost 2 hours, they tell me i need my insurance card.
I never been to another facility, so it was information I could have used before I signed in. I had to be at work at 12, so I went home, with my stress level a 10.5.
Today, I had to cancel my appointment with my doctor, and went to the lab at 0620, and was home enough time to enjoy my coffee before i make my calls. My doctor's office doesn't seem to understand how urgent i need my physical done, but has agreed to fax over some information to another health care facility to complete my physical. Only after my mom got sour with them, in a nice way though.
I emailed my instructor and told her this is very unprofessional of me to be late on a deadline, but after paying my tuition and books, out of pocket, I had to wait for my payday (last week) to complete many tasks.
If any soon to be students are reading this, please learn from my mistake. Right now, the program is very strict, and I am praying my instructor will not throw me out and say "try again next year".
Thanks you for reading, its been a mess. Class starts bright and early tomorrw, and I'm still excited.
