Approaching a Pediatrics Focus
A new semester so soon. October 5 marked
the beginning of the fall semester. The classes to be covered are care of
children and care of the childbearing woman. Pediatrics shouldn't be such a
challenge, as this is what I do each day. Several of my fellow classmates have
already crossed the finish line which serves to show that the end is in sight.
Looking ahead at the calendar, my clinical
rotation begins in only 7 months. One of the biggest challenges that I have
encountered is being able to step across the line between the nurse and the
healthcare provider. Having been a nurse for the last 27 years, it is hard to
separate the two roles. Each day that goes by I see more clearly the pieces of
the information coming together.
My advice so far is to stay very, very
organized with your class work. Until next time, I will continue to study hard
and keep everyone informed of life as a student.
