    I started orientation on May 15th and am currently taking Pharmacology, Nursing Fundamentals and Nursing Fundamentals Clinical. Clinicals' won't start until June and I'll be starting in a nursing home. In time, when I take things like Maternity and Med Surge I will be doing Clinicals' in a hospital setting. I may even be able to do psych!

    As for the coursework; so far it's easy? The teacher warned us that it will get harder so I'm awaiting the storm. I have 0 doubts that it is going to get difficult, but so far I'm happy that I have time to prepare for it.

    Emotionally, I'm totally in love with my instructor and the class. She is SUCH an amazing nurse that has actually helped me (in less than a week) be more conscious of patients and their emotions. She emphasizes the importance of empathy and kindness, which I think is an important skill that I should hone. I came into nursing school being interested in the science but now I'm really starting to develop a sense for the people that will eventually be in my care.

    Have I cried in nursing school yet? Yes, but not for reasons you would think. My teacher shares really tragic stories about what she has overcome personally as well as sharing tragic or compelling patient stories. I'm really shocked that these stories have impacted me so much, because before I felt disconnected to it all.

    It's only been a week but I feel myself growing, and I'm so excited to see what else nursing school has in store for me.

    Right on! It's always great do be doing something that you like. And it sounds like you lucked out with a good instructor. That can really make or break school.
