Nursing School is Not for Sissies

I know I’ve been spotty about posting new entries.

It’s my own fault.

Oh, and school.

Nursing school is not for sissies.

Yes, I’ve already graduated from nursing school. Twice!

Once in 2001 with my Associates Degree of Nursing.

Once in 2016 with my Bachelor’s of the Science of Nursing.

I may have mentioned this at the beginning of dispatches from the evening shift.

I’m back in nursing school.

For the fourth time, if you count the two years I did at Creighton before I hurt my shoulder, lost my Air Force Scholarship and was forced to leave school.

This time I’m after my Master’s in the Science of Nursing.

There are three different tracks for MSN at my college.

One is for nursing administration. Um, no thank you. I have no desire to be the big boss.

One is for training to be a nurse practitioner. I know many nurse practitioners, but I just don’t like patients/people that well.

The last is for education. I would love to teach, but I would love more the write. It’s my fallback for when I can’t do OR anymore.

My husband asked me if I wanted to go for my PhD. If I want to teach online or at the collegiate level, I would need it. I don’t think so, especially with the way the government is functioning these days. So I’m holding that in reserve.

Apologies if this is a retread, it feels like a retread. But, as mentioned, nursing school is not for sissies.

If you need me I’ll be writing my 5 page paper that’s due on Wednesday.

Because I’m not a sissy.
