Only another few weeks and that will be the end of my second year in my training to become a registered nurse. I know everyone told me how quickly the time would pass, and it seems they were right. I have chronicled my journey so far in a couple of poems here and here and thought it only fitting that I should write a poem about how I got on in the second year.

During the second year of my nursing degree

There was so much we had to do

Not only were there assignments to write

But Clinical placements too

I’ve written a digital story

About person-centred care

Also critiqued and reflected

Whilst tearing out my hair!

Learned about diseases I hope I never get

And the drugs that treat them

Which I pray I don’t forget!

An important group presentation

Where things could get quite fraught

And of course, applying theory to practice

In everything we’ve been taught!

Despite my doubts and worries

That I would be able to succeed

I am still hanging in there

So, bring it on year three!
