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.
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.
