My name is Kylie, I am currently studying Bachelor of Nursing at University and I'm loving it. I am married with 3 children, all boys. I like to write about my experiences as a nursing student on my Blog at www.australiannursingstudent.blogspot.com.au. In my spare time (lol, am I kidding myself) I like to Tangle. I find it extremely relaxing and fun.I hope you enjoy looking at my art at www.kylies-sundays.blogspot.com.au. Please leave me a comment, I love hearing what people think. I'd also be more than happy if you'd like to follow me on Bloglovin or Google.

Big build up to wind down

It feels like there has been this massive build up to finish the first semester. I've had 2 lab sessions in 2 weeks (when it's usually only once every 3 weeks). Last Thursdays lab was an assessment on therapeutic communication, safe patient moving and hand hygiene.  I passed, and so did everyone else in my group. It appears to me that my university wants everyone to pass. I'm not sure that is such a good thing. I certainly wouldn't want an incompetent nurse looking after me if I was sick.

Anyway, all that is left this semester is to update my resume and right an application letter for a fake AIN position, write a report on my field study experience and do one exam for HUBS. Then it's 8 weeks of freedom. Yeehaa! I have been looking at my timetable for next semester and I have discovered that my favorite course (primary health care) is over after this semester, I thought it would continue through the second half of the year. Instead it is replaced with labs and clinical placement (which I am really looking forward to). I will miss learning about community health, it's history and thinking about its future and all its aspects.
