It Begins

Tomorrow morning is my first day of Nursing School.

I have been looking forward to this day for many years.

I face it with much anticipation, nervousness, butterflies in my stomach, excitement, enthusiasm, and optimism. In other words, I'm full of emotion.

I have several friends who have gone through or are currently in the program and therein lies the reason behind all of my emotions.

I have watched them stress out and cry over grades. I have seen bags under their eyes due to lack of sleep. I have heard of their (and their family's) many fast food meals.

But I have also seen their enthusiasm for what they are learning. I have rejoiced with them as each step brought them closer to graduating with their RN. I have cheered for them at their graduation ceremony.

Tomorrow this journey begins for me.

I can't even begin to express how humble I feel to be joining the 80 other student nurses in my cohort as we learn together the art of Nursing. What a thrill! An experience of a lifetime for sure.

It all begins with one step and tomorrow I will proudly take it- in my brand new (whiter than white!) nursing shoes!


  1. I'm so excited for you. I've said it before but I will say it again; I can't imagine anyone being better suited to be a nurse. You will be an incredible nurse. You are amazing!

  2. Go Becky Go!!! I will be cheering for you the whole time and wish you all the best in this new adventure.

  3. WOOOOO HOOOOO! I'm so excited for you! I'll be thinking about you all day tomorrow. Can't wait to hear all about it!
