My LAST Clinical Day of Nursing School!

After 53 clinical days and 408 hours, I am finally finished! No more care plans!! In this video below I express my happiness and relief from being finished with my clinical rotations. Clinical days for me were very difficult because the hospital where I did my rotations is about 25 miles away from home. It doesn’t seem like much, but when you have to be there at 7:00am sharp, it can be a challenge. I would wake up at 5:00am every day and leave by 5:30am, to make it there by 6:15am. Some days, I wouldn’t sleep that well but I had to push forward and continue. After all of these months I’m finally finished!

A Typical Week As A Nursing Student

I attempted to film a really good “Day in the life” series from Monday through Sunday….. but I either 1) kept forgetting to record, 2) was too busy to record, or 3) was too tired. Since I started this journey, I’ve gone from working full time, to part time, and now I work per diem. I was superwoman for a while, juggling it all. But as time passed, school got harder so I decided to cut back a bit. In this week, I recorded a few clips so you can get an idea of what it’s like to juggle school, work and your personal life.

Getting into RN School

I get asked all of the time how hard was it to get into RN school, what school do I attend, how long did it take to complete my pre-requisites? I decided to launch a series of 3 videos explaining my 3.5 year journey transitioning from an LPN to an RN. From prerequisites, to picking a school, and the acceptance process… If you have any further questions that I haven’t discussed in the video, please feel free to contact me! I’m more than happy to help.

Whats In My Nursing Bag?

Ever wondered what to carry around when you first start working as a nurse? Or better yet, ever wonder what you need to carry around when you’re working home health as a nurse? I started working home health again a few months ago because of the flexibility it offers while I finish school. Here I talk about what I carry in my bag that helps me out tremendously:

My Guest Appearance on the “Kojo Sarfo Show”

This week I had the opportunity to sit down with a fellow RN, Kojo Sarfo and appear on his Youtube channel. Not only is he a Nurse, but he’s a Clinical Instructor, Business Owner and Blogger who finds the time to balance it all. We dived right into discussing modeling, what inspired me to go for nursing and future goals.

Check out the interview below, and let us know what you think.
