  1. May need surgery!

    So things are going well in school. I really enjoy learning about all things anesthesia! We are now putting things together and it is so rewarding understanding how they fit. I can't wait for clinicals to start, but I know it will be a steep learning curve as those before me have warned me.

It's not that I've forgotten it, but I feel like there is no room for error in anesthesia ...
  2. Summer semester is done!

    So we just finished our summer semester a little over a week ago. I'm in a program that allows us to do our didactic portion over two years instead of one before we move on to the clinical phase.

I completed my BSN this year by way of an accelerated program which I loved. Other than the times I had to choose between my family and my program, I loved every minute and actually miss the academic environment. I was amazingly fortunate ...
