Hey, I thought I was the only one who spoke in dx format......

1. Stressing till the last minute over passing a class.

2. Learning how effective I am as a classmate/friend for most of my classmates.

3. Learning how sad it can be to give the last bath, but when you do it as a group, how important it is to be a role model.

4. Having at least one patient tell me every week "You'll make a great nurse, you take the time to listen."

5. Having nurses seek me out on the floor to tell me about assignments from last week and how the patients wanted to know how to thank that nice staff nurse!!!!

6(personal). Knowing that I must be doing something right....nurses seek me out for problem patients and know what they ask gets done while I'm on duty.....

you'll have more...keep it up!
