I have come to the last 2 days of my preceptorship/internship/externship/whatever-you-want-to-call-it on the cancer unit at Fairview Southdale Hospital! Yay!!! It has been an amazing experience, and I have learned so much. In the last 3 weeks I have hung more IVs than in the last 2 years, and I have also seen the joys and the sorrows of life on a cancer unit. Strangely and wonderfully enough, every time I leave one of my shifts there I feel more and more excited to go to Zambia and use these skills there.
But for now, I need to finish these last 2 days and then a couple finals – then graduation!!!
Pray that God will give me a job as an RN. As everyone knows, times are tough, and even hospitals are not hiring. But pray that God will be gracious to me and give me a job where I can continue to learn and gain experience.
