Got my badge!!

So excited to get my badge today for the hospital where I'll be doing my clinicals this semester.  It makes me feel so official! I can't wait to get started.  I have a FOUR freaking hour orientation that I guess I should start.  Plus I'm supposed to read one chapter before class AND go over a 40 pg power point & take notes on it.  I mean seriously, four hours people?? Your hospital is NOT that interesting I'm sure.....  


  1. Congrats! I remember my first badge too...I still have it! It's so exciting to just get it going...and be one step closer to getting it all over with : ) Good luck in med/surg. It was by far the most time consuming, hardest, my least favorite of the program. But it eventually ends, and you do learn a lot!

    1. Thanks for the encouragment!! I LOOOOVE your blog :) I'm not sure if we get to keep our badge when we're done, but if we do I am certainly going to keep it as a memento :)

  2. Congrats and actually a decent picture

  3. Haha, yeah I made sure to preview it before I accepted it, but it was alright, lol.

  4. nice - looks very official and you take a good picture (unlike some of us - HA!). Enjoy the rest of this journey
