Ok, I admit it: I love going back to school.
I guess you could call me a geek. But that's okay. I pretend that I don't like it sometimes. Like on my facebook page, where my most recent status update is somewhere along the lines of "school starts tomorrow, so depressing". I love buying new school supplies. There is nothing like seeing sharpened pencils and perfectly white and square erasers in my pencilcase. I love binders filled with lots of fresh, blank loose leaf. I think that September is definitely my favourite time of month. It's like a blank slate, where you can't start new again (I feel this more so in September than January). And my second big confession: I don't really find nursing school that stressful. I know most people wouldn't agree, but I actually don't mind sitting in the sofa for a whole afternoon in our library reading over my notes.
This is my last year of school. Which means that this is my last year for school supplies, blank slates, and studying. I think I am definitely going to miss it. Which leads me to believe that I'll probably do some post-graduate program. I am really interested in the nurse practitioner program, and would love to specialize in medical-surgical nursing. However, I am not naive enough to believe that once I recieve my nursing degree I will know everything, so I am going to try to get atleast five or so years of experience first. And then I'll be back to the books.
