Update …..

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

So I have successfully Made it through N100 and N101 and I’m in N201 Now. My Gpa is a 3.5 and I’m holding strong Please keep me in your prayers. The Most High has continued to bless me and I am ever grateful. Tonight I had the opportunity to sit in on a Lecture by Dr. Debra Toney The President of the black Nurses Association ( Yes I am a member Of the South Eastern Pennsylvania Black Nurses Association!!! Go Me!!!!) Her lecture was just the thing I needed in some ways nursing isn’t what I expected and neither is the health insurance industry but both the positive and negative experiences that I have had and seen while on clinical have reinforced my beliefs about how i think heathcare should be. I will Not stop until I have my own Wholistic Health Center. (So Shall it be written so shall it be done!)
Any way my primary reason for writing this blog was to post a blog that I intended to post in August Right after I went through Orientation for school I wrote this blog as if I were writing a chapter in the book of my life I hope you enjoy it

As I sat there in that same grey classroom that I had sat in two years ago … I realized how far i had truly come. Not even two years ago I thought for sure I’d never get into this school ….that I’d never mix in with the white wash of Abington’s Nursing school…
And I reflected on the moment when I melted in Stephanie Wroten’s arms (a complete stranger then) at the front of this very room as she told me that i could do it…. that all hope wasn’t lost …I could still be a nurse… despite the course life put me through. In this moment I am grateful ….so grateful. “I have Arrived”
Snapping back to reality sucking back the tears of pride and love and appreciation realizing now that I am on the road to nursing ready now to embrace the future I have always wanted

I scribbled this into the memo pad they gave us at orientation …at times it seems like time is moving way too slow and graduation can’t come quick enough …through and through i am grateful for the journey and the people who I have crossed paths with who have opened doors for me and I am grateful for those who have come to me looking for me to open those same doors for them.

I will do my best to keep you up to speed on my progress if any of you out there have an Nclex study book I’ll take it!
Peace and love family
