As many of you know, I am currently attending school in pursuit of my Masters in Nursing, my focus is Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. I started at Drexel University, which is in Philadelphia, back in 2013 while living in DC as a travel nurse. The program is mostly online, requiring that we do clinicals locally and visit campus every quarter during the last year of the program. This past week I traveled to Philly for my fifth and final OCI!
The week was full of guest lectures, seeing simulation patients, and practicing procedures in the lab such as endometrial biopsies and colposcopy skills. We also got some real life advice about employment, contracts, and what to expect from boards. I officially have 6 weeks of school left and clinicals!
Of course the trip was not with out drama. Traveling always has its hiccups. I am still breastfeeding my son, so I have to pump when I’m out of town. And you can bet that the the airport and TSA don’t make this pleasant. Oh yeah, and then I almost broke my foot by dropping my mac book on it. But other than that, I enjoyed being back on the east coast! Plenty of reading, eating good food, and people watching. I wish I had taken more pictures, but I was busy living in the moment.
Anyway, I am so excited because graduation is literally 7 weeks away! Still, of course I feel extremely overwhelmed and underprepared for the huge comprehensive final coming up. I pretty much have to know everything about anything about women’s health. So, say a little prayer for me!
NP coming soon 🙂
