New blog...

I am really digging this new blog I found called Life in the Clinic.  It's from a PNP.  So far I am loving all of her posts, she seems very smart and on top of things, exactly the type of NP I want to be when I grow up.

So school is right around the corner.  List of things I still need to do BEFORE class starts on the 27th.

  • Order my nametag
  • Buy my scrubs/labcoat
  • Get my shoes off of layaway (yes I'm broke enough to put my shoes on layaway, lol)
  • Get my books (rumor has it that books this semester were close to $1000.00, thank goodness this is supposed to be our most expensive semester, couldn't afford 4 more of these!)
  • Renew my driver's license, it expires today
  • Get a new book bag 
  • Get new pens/highlighters etc.

Thank goodness for nursing best friends to nag you to death  call & lovingly remind you to do all of those things we need to get done before the semester starts.  I have to admit that as the semester gets closer I am getting more excited, nursing home & all.  

Hope everyone has a great weekend!



  1. hopefully, you'll be able to get it all done!!!
    my freshman 1st semester was my MOST expensive by far. it was over $1000 for books and supplies.
    and yes, that is great new blog!!

    1. Yep, every post I read makes me veer more toward Peds. This is my 2nd semester, but I've heard it was supposed to be our most expensive, so I guess I can do it this one time. Whew, this job better be worth this debt!!

    1. Because I'm not looking forward to working in a nursing home. I just took a CNA class & I'd have to say that those 5 days were more than enough to last me a life time. But I only have to go 6 times so I can suck it up that long.
