I have been on AN since I was a CNA, dreaming of becoming an RN. I took the long route, but I recently finally got here. I have completed my BSN and passed NCLEX! After 5 years of being a CNA, 5 years of LVN...I'm finally an RN!I started school 5 months before my first child was born,I made it though despite my husbands 1 year deployment...I rocked it. But can't help but to feel sad though. My husband is active duty military and we're not stationed around any friends of mine. I have work friends, but we don't socialize much. My parents live 3 hours away. I'm probably being way too emotional about this, given I am due to deliver our second born next week. I just would like someone to buy me some balloons, make me a cake or dinner or something. We didn't get to have a pinning because of Covid and they're just going to mail us our pins-so that's not even happening!
I feel like I've made this great accomplishment but there's no hoorah. I guess bc I've always done it up for everyone else (huge surprise birthday parties, cakes, gifts, etc..I go all out!) I was just hoping someone would do something for me this time. I know I'm lucky for having a job waiting on me. I've been working ER as an LVN for a year and they have an RN position for me after the baby, so I try to keep that in mind...a lot of new grads want to get into the ER but can't.
Ah, I just feel sad, y'all. I had no where else to anonymously vent so...here I am. Thanks for letting me b***h 🙂
