Pinning, Graduation, Life =)

I just realized it has been quite some time since my last post. As everyone in the universe knows, I graduated nursing school. Before you graduate from the college the nursing class does a pinning ceremony. It is a ceremonial "welcome to the world of nursing." At the ceremony we get pinned by our nursing instructors, light candles, and recite a professional nursing pledge.
Here I am getting pinned by my instructor

Pinning was on Friday night. Saturday afternoon I had a small graduation party at my in-laws. Sunday afternoon I graduated college. Graduation was long and drawn out but I was so glad to go through the process.

The next big step is my boards. Nurses take what is called the NCLEX, a state licensing exam. I am scheduled for Friday, so I will be studying ALL WEEK LONG! I have also been applying for jobs left & right. I lost my job working as a CNA at my local hospital because I am getting my RN license ugh. Hopefully I can find something soon so that I can start my IVF process again.
