I will never sign another chart or note with SN - I am done with clinicals!
It's crazy - I feel such relief, and not as much nervousness as I thought that I might. I guess because I still don't have a job or even an application for a license...
so, today, instead of going to work as an NA, which I desparately need to do because I have approximately $80 to my name, I will:
- go to the DMV and update my drivers license to reflect my new address for $10
- then take that shiny new license and go to the courthouse basement and get a set of fingerprints for $10
- then take those shiny new fingerprints and stuff them into a card with a form and a check for $38 and mail them to the state board of nursing
- and then desparately rustle around in my bookbags and files for the checklist of what to do when in order to get the privilege to sit for hours clicking nervously through questions to receive a nursing license. I know it involves another check for $70 and another check for $200, but I don't know when, nor to whom those checks need to be paid. And since the $10, $10 and $38 will pretty much tap out my cash on hand (and I have no reserves, I've already rolled up the spare change and cashed it in this month), I'm not sure when that will happen.
In other news, I confessed a crush (my first on a boy in YEARS!) and learned that he, in turn, has an unrequited crush on someone else. Let the emotional roller coaster of the holiday season begin!
