Around this time last year I was sitting in my office at Big Brothers Big Sisters in Spartanburg, getting ready for our kid’s Christmas party all the while wondering if and where I was going to nursing school in the fall. I am now sitting at Little River Coffee shop down the road from my old office at Big Brothers Big Sisters…. because I made it through the first semester and am visiting sweet friends! The picture below is of myself and three of the girls who are in the accelerated bsn program with me at UT Knoxville on our first day.!
I cannot believe that one semester has passed! It has definitely been a roller coaster ride with early morning clinicals, flu shots, care maps (f you don’t know what those are…consider yourself lucky), getting back into study mode, getting asked by people in the hospital if I was a doctor, and the list goes on. It has been fun, hard, and thrilling— but I am so excited to have a month off to spend with family and friends!
