Excited. Terrified. Excited

My final semester of (this) nursing program is upon me. I woke up this morning pretty excited to get it done. And then I went to class this morning and saw the clinical rotations and clinical expectations for the semester  and freaked out a little.  We have rotations in Community Health Nursing, Mental Health Nursing, Advanced Telemetry Nursing and Critical Care Nursing this semester. Plus we have our transition, which is a 60-hour shadow of a nurse in an area we'd like to be a part of. And oh, by the way, the nursing managers are watching you, so be good so you might be offered a job this summer.


Totally no pressure though.

And then I took a deep breath and realized that this is what I've been working towards for nearly 4 years now. I am so excited to be a nurse. I am so terrified to be a nurse, because then, I'll be the nurse. But I'm excited.

And terrified.

Take charge! You're good at it. And I mean that as a supreme compliment.

Thanks! A telemetry floor is one with cardiac disorders. We learned all about cardiac problems last year. This year we get to read and interpret EKGs.
