Last day on placement as a first year.

19th of august. 20:49

Part six.
Today was my final day on the ward as a first year student nurse! It also happened to be absolute bedlam, being a carer down when there is like 4 patients that needed bed bathing in the bays is not a good move!
Luckily a fellow student came and help dig me and the staff nurse out of the shit ( literally) haha.
Apart from that I really enjoyed my last shift and I actually found myself feeling quite tearful at the thought of leaving the ward and the patients you have grown close to.
For your information I did not cry but I did have a lump in my throat!
I am looking forward to my next placement already, even though it is not until January next year! I am a bit nervous though, i can’t hide behind the first year status anymore, staff are going to actually expect me to know things now I am a second year! Ha so no pressure then!

University next week then 5 beautiful weeks off, within which I am escaping to Egypt for two glorious weeks with my fella!
I am so excited for uni! Seeing all my friends who I seem to have lost contact with over the last three months due to placement! Everyone seems to go all distant during this time, including me. I also let myself go, like not straightening my hair, doing my make up, or shaving my legs! Haha.
Placement is an excuse to be lazy I feel! We work really hard so we have to sleep hard too!

Speaking of sleep I think I will get in my pjys and try not to think too much of the pizza but I have just eaten! Chris is here so I think a snuggle is in order too!

Thank you for everyone who reads my blog by the way, i really appreciate it!
I think 110 views in 4 days is quite an achievement!
Blog tomorrow, love Mxoxo

    “Apart from that I really enjoyed my last shift and I actually found myself feeling quite tearful at the thought of leaving the ward and the patients you have grown close to.”

    This shows everyone how much you care for the patient(s), as well as what a loving heart you have for feeling that way. If you ask me? your heart is in the right place and it is tearful because it’s a day where everything went just right 🙂 thank you for sharing with us and reminding everyone who reads the blog that there are still kind and caring people like you out there 🙂
