Give Me A Break

Never before have I been so eggcited (I am truly sorry!) for Easter to arrive. After five weeks of lectures, two months of placement, and a university assessment, I was giddy at the thought of having some much-needed time off. You can forget about chocolate bunnies and egg hunts, it’s all about the mid-morning lie-ins, back-to-back episodes of Man V. Food (I’m watching it as I type!), and fictional reading materials for me.

It’s hard being a student, but I would argue that it’s at least twice as hard being a student nurse. Combine being on placement with uni work, as well as trying to have some semblance of a social life, not to mention the small task of moving (again!), and things start to get a little fraught.

So a few weeks before the semester ended I decided that the Easter break would see my taking a brief hiatus from the world of nursing. I lasted less than a week, and even during that week I managed to watch a ridiculous amount of medical TV programmes - the real-life kind, not the likes of Holby City etc.

As I write this, I am working on other blog ideas, regularly checking up on what the nursing twitteratti are up to, and working on my PDP. It seems nursing is now in my blood, and despite my best efforts, I can never seem to stay away from it for too long.
