That is what I was going to do if I didn't get accepted into nursing school the first time around! I loved my clinicals in the OR. Congratulations and it should be nothing if not exciting. Our program here lasts a year. When times are tough just say to yourself, "I can survive anything for one year." That's what we do at work. When things are in the gutter and everyone has strapped their hair up and dirty to their elbows, feeling like giving up, someone will say, "Come on, people! We can survive anything for 12 hours (our shift length)". It is lame but has pulled me through more than a couple of times. And it will be all worth it once you finish.

Again congratulations!

Thanks so much for the encouragement! The program is 12 months with a 4 month externship. It's going to be brutal but I've got to do something. And I figure now that I'm single and have no kids yet, this is the perfect time. I'll just be a zombie for a year!!

Thanks for the advice!!! And the positive thoughts I love the OR, couldn't imagine working in any other department. But I want more hands on experience, and feel like I'm doing more than putting a tray together. Your advice was excellent. I feel I've done nothing this last year but have a pity party for myself, and that flew by. Why not make something of this year? You're right I can get through it, it won't last forever and time spent will be worth it in the end! November can't get here fast enough lol. Thanks again, you're too sweet!!

Impressed with myself! I gave myself my first injection of my MS medication today! It was not nearly as bad as I thought it might be. I have to rotate injection sites daily, so Kim gets to give me the shot tomorrow, since I can't reach my backside very well, lol. Here's to a shot a day for the rest of my life, lol! I'm glad the injection is just sub-q!

I really think I am losing my mind. I just spent the past 2 week trying to figure out where the heck one of my instructors keep getting our homework questions from only to finally realize I had a book for a management class and I was taking a comm class! #haveyouseenmymind

Ouch. Good luck with that.

I don't know if I could give myself injections. I look away when a doctor puts a needle in me.

I'm ticked. Yesterday I had some old lady hit me who clearly had no business driving. And she didn't just hit me 1 time, she hit me twice, and almost a 3rd time as an officer yelled at her repeatedly "Ma'am please turn the car off!" It was like a crazy dream. My husband said he thought she was on Xanax. She couldn't even stay awake while we waited on the police. And lucky me should couldn't find an active insurance policy to hand the police officer so now I'm stuck trying to figure out if she even has insurance.

Did she do a lot of damage? Of course, with the tin can and plastic vehicles of today, it doesn't take much... I'm glad no one was hurt, and I hope you get the insurance stuff settled quickly.
