  • Giving Thanks in Trying Times

    As the holidays fast approach and the year is quickly coming to a close, it seems natural to look back at times. Although looking back at times can help you see how far you came over the past year, it can distract you at times from where you are headed. Often we become overwhelmed at what we have not gotten completed. As 2013 comes to an ...

  • Bring It On!

    The time has come! I've passed boards, obtained my state license and I am scheduled to have ''temporary privileges'' at my facility next week! This is such an exciting time for my family and me! We've worked so hard for so many years and this is it. The really amusing thing? I opened the mail a couple of weeks ago when my license came through ...

  • The Real Price of Medical Education

    The real tragedy of getting a medical education is not the understanding of your own mortality or quantification of personal risk factors. It's not even the fact that friends and colleagues want you to look at something awful that is growing out of their body (I was sure that was a myth). It is the loss of good television. An EMT friend of mine ...

  • Becoming an NP Online

    Last month during the lull of winter break, I had a sudden fear that I would not be able to find a job after graduation. I guess it was because of the lull, no case studies to do, clinical hours completed for the semester, and final grade deemed passing, that I had the time to contemplate a life after school. This month, as my classes resume ...

  • Ghost Stories

    I am sitting in a building erected in a decade when buildings were square and walls could never be thick enough. Brown ivy climbs a brick exterior white-washed so many times that it seems smooth. The old steel radiators chitter like a multitude of sparrows and my seat was built for someone with a smaller number of dietary choices. The nurse who ...

  • Traversing the Finals Steps of NP Education

    Yes! I proclaim with clinched fists, because I have passed yet another class on my journey to become an FNP. I have only two classes left, and though these two classes are intense, and will occur over the course of the next year, I am beginning to glimpse the light at the end of this tunnel of advanced nursing knowledge.  As much as I ...

    I am currently in a  class called ''Societal Forces'' as a precursor to my first semester of advanced assessment in the Adult/Gero Primary Care Nurse Practitioner track.
