One thing that keeps happening while I go through this journey of nursing school is endless learning. Nursing involves learning every single day due to the changes in health care. As always, I have learned even more about what being a nurse is all about. I had a great opportunity to care for critically ill patients in the ICU to moderately ill in the ER. It has been such a great experience. From placing foleys, inserting nasogastric tubes, to giving very potent IV medications, it has been an experience that is going to help me further my confidence to get ready for practicum and start my nursing career.
Thankfully, I was able to get through fifth semester and get through its challenges. Although it feels like nursing school is starting to wind down, I still feel the pressure. I still get plenty of stress, which is probably gonna be present until I retire from nursing, many, many years from now. I feel happy that I am one step closer to accomplishing my dream of being a nurse, no matter how stressful it may be.
