In less than 24 hours, I made 38% of my goal
I keep refreshing my fundraiser page and expecting it to say zero because I honestly cannot believe how many people are supporting me.
What started as a dream is slowly turning into reality. I am absolutely speechless.
I was honestly happy with $5 and then $5 turned into $15, turned into $20, turned into $120! Now I’m at $376…This is nuts!!
What goes around really comes around <3
To think I was going to not try to fundraise because Brian discouraged me when he told me his friend did something similar and made only $50…
This is more than I would’ve ever asked for. It really brings me to tears.

Awesome first clinical day!
I got to insert an enema, watch staples get taken out of an incision, take vitals, do a head to toe assessment, transfer a patient from bed to commode, change poopy bedsheets (I gagged at the smell lmao), watch a foley catheter get taken out, watch a pic dressing change, witnessed a blood clot in the left atrium/ventricle on the echo machine, and so much more. Such a fun day!
I got isolated from my classmates and ended up spending my day with an RN and a CNA who were both so so so sweet and helpful. My patient was awesome as well!
I think I chose the right career guys…who knows how I’ll feel a week from now, but I’m feeling great! The 8 hours flew right by!
To think I was nervous about today….hehe
Time to study for my last midterm gaaaaah. Shwill update later.
Hello Friends of Tumblr World
This summer I have the opportunity to go to Panama for 2 weeks to help run a health clinic for rural communities. I will be shadowing doctors, taking vitals signs, providing medications and educating the community on the importance of healthcare. I’ve always wanted to be a travel nurse, so this would make or break that dream.
Unfortunately, due to the nursing program, there has been a huge hole in my wallet. I would be so grateful if you helped me get there this summer. The program is $2200, but I’m trying to raise at least $1000! Every dollar counts! Thank you so much!

HELP CINDY GET TO PANAMA

Haven’t been up in these cubicles since maybe sophomore year during anatomy/physiology. I forgot how much work can be done and not done when I’m confined to a tiny space.
Currently prepping for my first clinical tomorrow morning at 5:30AM. DEATH.
I didn’t realize how long this prep would take. I think I’ve spent at least 2 and a half hours working through the etiology/pathology/signs/symptoms etc. of my patient. It’s so crazy how everything in the past medical history is related to each other! So intriguing.
Anyway, need to work on meds and study.
