So, FINALLY, I have official confirmation of my final placement in nursing school, where I work 450 hours in a nursing experience. I applied back in July, and I finally heard today that I AM GOING TO THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT!
I'll be working with a preceptor (mentor) there, in a small community hospital. I'll be commuting 40 minutes, and even though there are bigger, tertiary care hospitals nearby that I am not placed at, I'm not that disappointed. The Emergency/Critical care areas are very competitive, I'm surprised I got a spot.
Anyway, I also went to a conference this past weekend to present my master's work . I'll tell you a story about that later!
