Well, Friday night was my last night of clinicals as a student nurse. I had a pretty good time. I started out in the OB/Nursery area, but there wasn't much going on, so I got floated over to the Med/Surg area. It was busy. I like it when it is busy! We had like 5 or 6 new admits and I got to help the nurses with the admitting and all that jazz. I learned quite a bit and enjoyed myself. After we reported off, did our documenting and had post conference, the teacher suggested we go to a local all night diner. I normally would have said no thanks and skittered on home, but I decided to take a chance. I was a little scared and left early, but I'm glad to got my proverbial toes wet. I don't hate people, I just get a little anxious in group settings unless there are clearly defined boundaries, such as "patient" and "nurse." I hope I can overcome that sooner rather than later.
I'm excited to be just about done with school. I just have to take my final exams and then I'm done. Then I get to spend the next month or so studying to pass my boards. Then job hunting.... We'll see how it goes. =)
