It feels so official now!

  1. I got a letter from my school inviting me to a mandatory registration day. I get to register for my nursing classes, fill out a bunch of forms, meet my classmates and get fitted for my uniforms!

    I'm SO excited!

    :smiley_aa Let the party begin!!

    Isn't it exciting?! I just finished week 5 of classes!! It flew by. I start my clinicals on Thursday (which happens to be my 10th wedding anniversary) and I am scared out of my mind! its been eons since I've given direct patient care (bed baths, transfering etc). I guess its like riding a bike, you never forget how once you learn and master it.

    to the wild and sometimes scarey world of nursing school. We can do this!!

    I found out we get to wear whatever uniform we choose as long as it's a white top, white pants, white shoes and a white, knee length lab coat...the faculty just has to look it over to make sure it fits properly, etc. We buy a patch from the bookstore and have it sewn on our sleeve.

    I'm not crazy about all-white, but I look at it this way...it could be worse!

    PS: They want us to wear WHITE undies, but forget it...that is why God made flesh tones. White undies show through clothes and flesh colored underwear doesn't.

    I am waiting for my orientation letter. It should be sent out some time in May and we start in June. Luckily the uniforms will be scrubs, so I will be making another trip to Dallas.
