Lookin' Good Nurse's Style

Orientation
Today, Tuesday the 11th of January, was orientation for the nursing cohort that begin the program spring 2011. 



















From 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 80 brand new, nervous, nursing students crowded into a lecture hall to hear how the next 2 years of our lives....would suck.

A large cup of coffee and 4 1/2 hours of hearing all the different ways we could make nursing school easier, I headed to the bookstore to purchase my arsenal for a semester of trying not to kill people by giving them the wrong meds. 

$700 later, I was in the midst of a financial panic attack.

Something Positive
After swinging by the uniform store and dropping another wad of cash, only one thing about today brightened my day.



















TAA-DAA!  Yep.  A pink stethoscope!  Wow, that's very girlie of me.  Hmm....something's not right.

  3. Hey Judith,

    I love it when I come across other beginner runners like myself! OMG and I'm so jealous you're finishing your nursing program, how did you handle the stress?!

    Good luck with everything!
