So close....

Summer is here, well I mean not officially, but close enough, and this summer means school is back in full force. Of course by full force I mean part time. In one way I'm looking forward to the fact that I'll only have 2 classes at a time to focus on, which hopefully means I'll make straight A's. On the other hand though, I wish I was able to go full time, like in nursing school, and get it over with! Another 2 1/2 years...sigh. The good thing about this time around though, is how AWESOME clinical is going to be!!! I am soooo looking forward to my clinicals, all dressed up in my white coat and professional name tag! Guess I need to do some shopping before then huh? Going straight from nursing school into nursing, I haven't really had the need to stock up on professional clothing. I went from jeans, sandals and tennis shoes, to scrubs and tennis shoes. And of course there's the ever present bun that I wear, definitely going to need to get my hair did before then! Thankfully I have a year to stock up, because truth be told, I HATE to clothes shop. But, I figure if I can just stock up on the staples (good black pants, black shoes, a couple of nice shirts) then I can get by, right? Ooooh I'm so excited for that!! It's just so unreal to think I'll be in that position in just 2 short years.

School starts back on June 2nd and until then I'm working as much as possible since I plan on cutting back to 3 days a week once school starts, at least until I get my footing. I'm hoping that I can still incorporate a 4 day week every other week, but until I'm sure, I have set my next schedule for three days only. That's going to seriously hurt my wallet. I tried so hard not to get used to my paycheck from working 4 & 5 days, but it's so hard! That extra day every week makes such a huge difference! Have I mentioned how much I love my nursing paycheck? Well, for all you nurslings out there, let me just say, I DO! Money may not be everything, but let me tell you, it sure makes life a lot more enjoyable! Especially going from a broke nursing student.

I have some other stuff NP related to tell you, but that will have to wait until next time.

Have a great rest of the week!
