there's no turning back! Today was my last day at the job I thought I was going to retire from. I worked there for 8 years and learned so much, but now I begin my career as a nurse.
I graduated from nursing school
in may and passed my boards july 12th. I start my orientation on sept. 5th in l & d. I am so excited about this amazing opportunity and am a bit scared as well. I cant believe it has all come together. when i applied to nursing school i didnt know how I was going to juggle a full time job at night and school in the day while raising 4 kids and married a non-supportive man. Somedays I didnt know how i was going to get through the day , but you just do.
I knew I wanted to go into labor and delivery but along the way I saw myself doing so many different things. I'm an EMT and everyone thought that I would naturally want to work in an ER. I feel such a pull to L & D and feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to begin my career where I think I can be my best and happiest.
I just spent the day giving hugs and saying my goodbyes to an amazing group of people that I worked day in and out with and now there's no turning back. I start a new career , meet new people and learn many more things about nursing , myself and life. I cant even put into words what I am feeling because there are so many emotions. I cant wait to see what the future holds.
Thank you for giving me this forum to share these feelings.
