I have so much to say, so much that I want to write down in words, but I simply do not have the time to do that. I really don’t have time to even compose this post, but figured I deserved a reading break.
I could never have imagined finding so much joy in nursing. But then again, I love serving people. So, I guess it makes sense that doing that for a living could bring about such joy. :)
So, instead of going on and on about how much I love nursing, instead I’ll make a short list.
I’m calling it,
you know you’re in nursing school when…
You can count the amount of hours you sleep each night on one hand.
You spend an eight-hour day in the hospital and come home to do four hours of paperwork.
You and your classmates have a mutual agreement to not talk the first hour of class, 0800-0900, the day after clinical because we’re so tired.
You’re jealous when someone else gets to perform an invasive procedure and you didn’t.
Your social life exists in extended lunch hours.
You add nap to your list of things to do each day, sometimes moving it to the top of the list.
Guess that’s enough for now. :)
