Since my symbolic initiation (nurse pinning) into the nursing profession was postponed due to tornadoes and power outages, my school has decided to reschedule it 3 months later on Friday, Aug. 12.
I really miss my friends from school and even some of the instructors that have helped shape me into the awesome nurse that I know I will be. I know it would be a bittersweet reunion of sorts … one that I am not sure that I can handle. I bought the perfect dress and shoes when I thought that pinning would be in May. I really want to wear them I am not a super girly girl who always wears dresses, but this was one dress that I was excited about wearing.
Even though I miss some of the people I went to school with, I also know that many of them have not found jobs. Only about 1/4 of my classmates got the hookup. Isn’t it kind of rubbing it in the faces of those who are desperately searching?
The other thing is that I hated nursing school. I was unhappy for the entire 2 years. I am worried that it will bring back the nightmares and ugly memories. I cried almost every day in nursing school, and I was not the most pleasant person to be around. Depressed = irritable. Is 3 months really enough time to heal?
What to do?
So, what is the verdict? Tell me what to do. I am not good at making decisions like this. Should I go???
