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!
