Hey! I'm loving all these NVCC Nursing class threads and facebooks! :)
Name: Kaitlin (or Katie)
Years at NVCC: 2
Joined the FBook Group: Yes!
Career Goal: RN
Planning to Transfer: Yes, Mason's RN-BSN program, planning a double major in AS General Studies along with the AAS Nursing degree to make myself more competitive when I apply to Mason (kind of like making up my own Momentum 2 +1, except it'll be more than 3 years, lol)
Classes Completed: ENG 111, NAS 161/162, SDV 101, PSY 201/202, ART 101, HLT 141, CST 229, HLT 250, ASL 101/102, SPA 101/102, HLT 220, and in the next few weeks I will have BIO 141/142, ITE 115, MTH 151, and PHI 227 completed!
About me: I'm 20 years old, will turn 21 in the middle of the Fall semester. I am not married and I do not have any children, but I do have a boyfriend of 2+ years. For the longest time I can remember wanting to work in a professional health setting. My grandma always told me I'd make a great nurse and I've always wanted to be one. Honestly, I am a little intimidated by people who already have their foot in the door in the healthcare setting because I have zilch formal/professional experience in that arena. But I look forward to gaining that experience and this entire journey!
@Carolyn: I am under the impression that we must buy their specific scrubs, so when we go out to do clinicals, people recognize us as students. Not sure about the shoes though.
I can't wait for the Blackboard Orientation site to be available, I think I will be able to sleep a little more easy at night knowing some of the answers to the questions we all still obviously have!
