As the week starts, it
occurs to me that it is the beginning of week 6 of the semester and each week
is bringing my end to sight. In the beginning of this semester, I was feeling
down for not
passing a class
. But, as it progresses it is clear that the second time
around I am gaining new insight of the content.
Over the past weeks,
the challenge of securing a preceptor was successful. Although my actual
clinicals do not begin until May 2014, our school requires that the sites and
preceptors are approved in advance. This week we also register for the next
semester. This one is going by quickly.
The study time is
unreal at times; I am finding the only free time from studying is work. I
continue to be amazed at the number of NPs that are available in our facility.
This assures me that we as a profession are a much needed group.
In closing for this
time, I challenge each of you to seek out and enjoy the little things of your
day. The patient that runs across the parking lot because they remember you,
the baby that holds your hand, or the fellow classmate or friend that is
always trying to be your cheerleader.
Watching the sunrise each day on my way to work
I am reminded that we should take time to enjoy. Have a great week.
