Today, I met a huge goal in my life. HUGE! I completed all 570 hours of clinical time needed for graduation from my pediatric nurse practitioner program. I have a few more assignments to finish up before the end of April, but I no longer have to work an "extra" job. I had a hard time believing this day would ever come when I started my masters program in September of 06. While I don't claim to know everything (or even close), I do know that I have learned an incredible amount and am ready to forge into this new profession. I really, really hope that I can help babies, children, and their families to be the healthiest they can be!!
Smaller update: We haven't heard anything yet about the job that B interviewed for; we knew we wouldn't for at least two weeks. The good news is that there is a PNP job in the area that I would love to do. I'm working on my resume now and hope to apply early next week. I was really nervous about finding a job in this economy (even in healthcare), but seeing this open up has given me a little confidence! I'll keep you all updated as soon as we know anything...........
