Although life is quite busy lately, I jsut wanted to send out a little update on life! I am happy to say that "Soon-to-be-Nastase family" had a high-flying week!
During the Christmas break, whenever Ryan wasn't working at Raytheon or the Guard...he was studying to take his CDC test to become Staff sargent. He was a bit nervous, since he just focused his time on reading through the books--and the class is usually a 6 week class on leadership and management in the Air Force. He tested Tuesday afternoon, and scored high with an 87% which is awesome! I am so excited for him, and proud! Ryan also started up the spring semester yesterday, and he is very excited about his upcoming classes. The load this semester is will a heavy one for him!
Nothing monumental this week for me...but I will say that I have successfully survived my first two weeks of nursing school, and am counting down the days until I can be done with my N-CLEX and call myself an R.N.! I have probably learned more in these 2 weeks than I did in my entire undergrad up to this point. Things are going very well, and I have found a great study group! Tomorrow I do my first assesment of a patient!.............
.........Okay..the so the "patient" is a mannekin in the "simulation lab". This is no "mall mannequin" displaying clothing, however. It blinks, moves, vomits, urinates, and takes in catheters. Pretty amazing what technology has done so "learning nursing students" don't kill innocent patients due to lack of experience! :)
Well, I have heard that the weather is pretty miserable for all the folks up north. It's in the 70's here.....I wore shorts and a tshirt today. Sorry, guys. I think it's just a sign you all need to mouth SOUTH! :)
