Man, I feel like I have writer's block its been so long!

I'm happy to say that I have completed my Bachelors Degree this past week and I plan to take blogging to a full time experience now that it's over! There was just so much in depth discussions and formal reports that took so much of my time that I really didn't feel like typing out anything on here. It was almost like school took the fun out of blogging. Merp.

But anyhow, I'm finished! I officially have a Bachelors in Nursing and I honestly can't believe that I'm done with school...for now! I need to take a breather and relax. I've been in school since high school, part and full time, with a total of three degrees so I'm excited to just focus on work and the next steps coming up in our life.

Also related, today marks a special day for me as well because it's the anniversary of graduating from nursing school. It has been two whole years since I've been a registered nurse and its really hard for me to wrap my head around it. I feel like I've grown so much but have so much more growing left in my career, both professionally and personally.

I would be lying if I said I it has been an easy road to where I am in my career and ironically, I'm thankful it hasn't been easy for me. Nursing is hard, and sometimes it's extremely hard. You have to balance your own personal feelings and put the patients and their families needs first. Add in emotion, and sometimes life threatening conditions - things can get tricky quickly. Through trial and error, I like to think I've found equal balance when dealing with the public. Anyone who works in the medical field can agree with me it is a job that requires focus and biting your tongue more times than you should. 

I will also admit that I am excited to see what else is yet to come in my career. I have been in a different unit than when I began and I think I have found the place I belong. Not to sound cliche, but some days I actually get to save people. And without a doubt, that is quite possibly the best feeling in the entire world. Recently, I had a very young patient who literally looked me in the eyes and said "Thank you for caring about me when no one else has.", and it shook me to the core. It made me happy and extremely sad at the same time. But it also made me realize that I have chosen the career I was made for and its more than just a job. It's become something I look forward to doing. 

So cheers to the upcoming years down the road & a very Happy Nurseaversary to the amazing people I have walked through this journey with! I am so lucky to wear this title of RN with all of you! 💕
