For a while I forgot about this place. Ok maybe not so much forgot as kept meaning to post, composed posts in my head, wrote a lot, and just not any of it made it here. Some of it was a time issue, some of it was sorting out the chaos in my head and life as I finished nursing school. Speaking of nursing school, it is officially over. The challenges, the tears, the night preceptorship, graduation, the whole looking for a job thing, oh and I won't even talk about the boards. The important thing is I passed, 45 minutes of my life I never want to go through again. Three years of school came down to a 45 minute out of body experience I still can not explain, but I passed. As for the job thing, turns out they came looking for me. For a month now I have been working day shift as an RN in PCU post open heart. Me, an RN, I still can hardly believe it. Yet it all happened and now the surrealness of those moments is beginning to pass and the reality of my life and new job is coming into focus.
I have so much more to say, not to mention a full makeover to do on this site. A picture has formed in my head and I just need to figure out how to bring it to fruition.
Work, work, so much more work to be done. All I can say is it feels good to have my life back.
