I’m still alive (and I have news!)

Best wishes to you and your new job! Being an RN isn’t easy, kudos to you. 😀

Studying… still.

My mom’s been a nurse since she was 22. Now she’s in her mid-50s and she’s still studying something like for a certification exam or routine yearly exams. Studying never really ends, to be honest.

I’m a (soon-to-be) Nurse!

Congratulations! Kudos to you on your accomplishment; best of luck to you with the NCLEX. I remember when one of my friends was studying for it, I didn’t see him for weeks!

2015: The Plan(s)

Wishing you all the best in your studies! You’re almost done and then it’s the real world for you. Good luck with telling your parents about the boyfriend, also. I’ve been dating mine nearly 8 years and my dad has no idea. (He’s super strict and forbid my sisters and I to date. hah!)

On nursing & moving

I too had to move temporarily for my PT clinical rotations a few months ago. Good luck on your rotation! Have a happy new year, as well.

Reasons Not to Move to Hong Kong

I can relate to your experiences with being called “fat.” As a pre-teen going into puberty, my grandmother and my father (both assholes) called me fat when I was actually pretty athletic. That led to years of crash dieting and bouts of starvation that wrecked havoc on my hormones and overall health. I wasn’t even “fat” but the problem was I let them get to me. I will never listen to those assholes again.

Typically in Asian countries, women are just super tiny due to diet/lifestyle (perhaps less sedentary). As someone that was born in the Philippines, but grew in the States, I grew accustomed to the western diet of fast food (yuck!). If I had lived in the Philippines for most of my life, I probably would be tinier than I am today.

I think it’s unfortunate that in most Asian countries, nurses are underpaid. There’s a reason why Philippines is experiencing a major brain-drain, in terms of the medical field. Doctors and nurses are leaving the country to work in the U.S. and Canada. My mother is a RN here in the US and she left the Philippines because she did not want to raise a family there, especially because of the calamities and because of low income for nurses.

I am looking forward to your posts regarding the fun things you did on vacation! :)

85% and Summer Classes

One of my good friends is in his 2nd year of nursing school and should be graduating on December 2014. Ever since he got accepted to the nursing program, he’s been locked away in his man cave studying and reading for school for who-knows-how-long.

More power to you and good luck with the CRNE if you haven’t taken it by this time!
