Orientation Extravaganza

I am in love with my capstone rotation. I am in love with peds hem/onc. This is where I belong. More after my shift tomorrow. I have another early morning coming up!

Living The Dream

So technically my capstone hasn’t started yet. But I have a really good feeling about this experience after meeting with my preceptor (“C”) this morning. For one, she loves to teach.

Capping It All Off

In 17 days I’ll be 25% of the way to becoming an RN. That’s just freaking scary. But in the spirit of getting ahead of myself, I thought I’d begin marinating over what this semester has taught me and where I think I’m headed. Lesson #1: Psych is out. Even though I loved my placement …
