I did it!!!

  1. 32 This is a success story for me, it may not sound all that impressive for others though.

    I have never completed anything since finishing high school. I started many different degrees and just never found one I clicked with, all the while know what it was a wanted to do.

    Then I applied for nursing, and I forgot about it. I was surprised when I recieved the acceptance letter. I decided to defer for 12 months to save a little money and get ready as it had been a while since I had done any study by then.
    So 12 months later I sat in the nursing lecture theatre for my introduction and orientation lecture.

    Fast forward 4 years, another baby, and here I am today, not only completed my degree, but I am now a registered nurse with a new grad job starting in a week.

    I can't believe how it feels to know that I have finished something. I am a graduate. I am a registered nurse. In the beginning I used to fantasise about what it would be like, but then as I got into the degree, I focused on completing each subject rather than looking too far ahead.

    I just can't believe that I am actually here. I am so happy, and proud of the massive achievement. Nursing is hard work. It requires a lot of knoweldge and expert clinical skills, interpersonal, intuition, professional skills.

    I just wish my mum who was also a RN, was alive today to see this.
