I survived my first week in ICU!

  1. ...which is exciting, at least to me! I feel like I had that "aha" moment that maybe some people don't ever have--that kind of moment where it clicks and you're like "this is why I went through the hell that is nursing school, this is what I was supposed to do with my life" I saw and learned so many new things and while it was, at times, uncomfortable and stressful, it was hands down the best week I've ever had job-wise.

    Just wanted to share

    Good job. You're right, some people don't ever have that aha moment, as I am one of them. I still have no idea if going to nursing school was worth it. But congratulations on making it your first week and good luck as you continue moving forward.

    Thanks! I learn more every day—I enjoy it more than I hoped was possible!

    Congrats! Soon that "aha" moment will change to an "oh s***" moment and you'll question what you are thinking! haha But we've all been there and stick with it and be a sponge! I've loved being in the ICU!
