Last day of Peds....boohoo

face, crying

So tomorrow is my last day of Peds clinical......While I am VERY happy to have a little break from clinical to breathe & get caught up (and not have to get up at 4 am), I have to admit I am TOTALLY going to miss this clinical.  I wish I could just skip all the rest of these classes & get to working in pediatrics already!!  I am so happy to have found my niche.  I have to be honest.  Up until this point I was kind of wondering if I had made the right career decision. 
Of course I never wanted to be a floor nurse anyway, but even so I was really worried that I had made a bit of a mistake by choosing nursing.  Up until this clinical nothing has really sparked my interest & I had just been waiting for this clinical from the very beginning of nursing school.  I kind of knew that I would like it, but I never thought that I would fall head over heels in love with Peds.  And the cherry on top is that there is a fabulous Pediatric hospital in my favorite city around, Chattanooga!
Seriously, who wouldn't want to live here?
I would love to move to Chattanooga once I get my nursing license and work there, but unfortunately it's a little far away and they're an hour ahead of us.  That means instead of having to leave at 4 am to get there in time for the start of my shift I'd have to leave at 3.  Um, no thank you.  BUT we'll see.  It will all work out how it's supposed to and God knows my heart and He hasn't led me wrong up until this point. 
So I guess I'd better get to bed.  4 am comes REALLY early, especially when you're still up at 10 pm.  Don't know what I'm thinking. 


  1. Congratulations on finding your niche so quickly! Sometimes it takes years and multiple jobs before a nurse finds her true love.

    1. Thanks! I also love psych. That's my 2nd choice if I weren't to go into Peds. I just know that I don't like taking care of adult, so this was a natural fit. :D

  2. Peds and psych are my top two choices as well. Of course, I am just starting the same path that you are already on. I'm going back to school to become a FNP, but I have to become a nurse first. Not looking forward to that part (or nursing school), but I am looking forward to being a NP.
