Ants in my pants!


Ok so it's getting close to time for school to start, 20 days to be exact and I can feel the itch starting back.  You know the itch that I was feeling when school first got out.  Well it's back (probably has a lot to do with the fact that my kids are back in school so I don't have anyone to hang with when my hubs is at work).  I am so antsy to get back into school.  And it's funny because reading back on that post, I talked about working at my local hospital for my externship but already that has changed.  I can't believe I'm even considering this, but I have really gotten very interested in working in Peds.  Now if you knew me (which I know most of you don't) you would totally laugh at that, but it's true.  I have noticed that I have mellowed very much in my "old age" and I actually find myself taking a liking to children that I never thought I would.  I have always been interested in oncology and now I find that I am leaning toward pediatric oncology.  Of course this is just a thought and probably once I start my rotations I will have a better understanding of where I truly want to work.  From what I've seen of others, you pretty much find your way during clinicals.  I think that's where most people weed out what they don't like and/or discover what they do like.  And while I don't want to wish my life away, I have to admit I will be glad to be done with this semester since the clinical is in the nursing home, booo.  Nursing home or not, I am READY to get back into school!! Of course there's that little thing about going on a cruise first (yipee!!) but once that's done it's right into the school year and I am super ready for it!!

  1. I give you credit. Fields like pediatric oncology, oncology in general and Hospice care are very tough and rewarding. Finish school and you will be a good nurse no matter what your calling.
