As some of you may know I have almost come to the end of my first year as a Student Nurse. I have written a poem about my journey so far here. I would just like to give a shout out to a very special person that helped me by proofreading a few of my drafts. She painstakingly read through what must have been pretty tedious, not to mention badly written pages of text . Wendy, thank you so much, I really did appreciate what you did or me, and apologise for the quality of some of those drafts!
Although I feel exhausted
And have shed some bitter tears
I am proud to have made it this far
And got through the first of three long years!
Assignments have been tricky
Yet I thought I would do quite well
But I was badly out of practice
And one of them I failed.
My placements have been busy
With so much to see and do
Signing off skills I have accomplished
And learning maggot therapy too!
I got to know so many people
In the short time I was there
But I feel very privileged
To have been a small part of their care.
Becoming a nurse won’t be easy
But I know, at least for me
That I am doing the right thing
And it’s still what I want to be!
