Today is a special day to me for several reasons. Exactly a year ago on today – I graduated from college with a Bachelors Degree in Nursing. Nursing school is one of my proudest achievements but also one of the most hardest things I’ve EVER done. There were times I didn’t think I would make it through – but I kept praying, kept believing and kept working hard.
I remember scrolling through social media profiles of registered nurses and reading their stories, hoping one day I would be just like them and I did. Today is also the beginning of Nurses Week and my very first one!
I can’t believe I’m coming up on one year as being a nurse – it has had it’s ups and downs, challenges and breakthroughs. But I can honestly say it is everything I hoped it would be. I do feel fulfilled that I get to take care of people and make a difference in their life.
To all those nursing students out there – keep grinding and staying strong. I promise there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
To all my new grad nursing students about to take the NCLEX and begin their career as a nurse – the world is your oyster, have an open mind, learn as much as you can, always ALWAYS ask questions for clarification or when you don’t understand anything on the job and get as much hands on practice as possible. You Got this!
To celebrate my first nurses week (and yes you get to celebrate with me!) – I have a giveaway!!! I have 3 goodies to give away.
The first prize is a Littmann Classic III Stethoscope with a Navy Tube. We all know having a stethoscope is a must during assessment in most nursing areas.
The Second Prize is a Denik 2018 Planner and a Samsonite Tritan Sports Bottle. 22 oz. We all know how important it is to have a planner to keep up with shifts, scheduling, assignments, bills etc.
I know my planner was a life saver during nursing school and still plays an important part of my life as nurse today. I use it to schedule my shifts, bills, and errands I need to get done.
I want you too to have that by gifting one of the winners with a planner.
And lastly the Third Prize is another Mead Cambridge 2018 Planner and A Set of Pilot Rollerball Pens. Having pens in nursing or nursing school is must. Here is a set of black pens for one of the lucky winners to keep in their scrubs or bag.
Congratulation to my 3 winners!
