We are in the middle of the holiday season, so I just wanted to pop in with a short list of frequently asked questions at Christmas parties and gatherings so we can skip the small talk and dive into what YOU’VE been up to. =)
How is your preceptorship going?
I love being in the NICU, despite feeling entirely overwhelmed and in over my head. Working with families is immensely rewarding, as is watching the babes grow and reach important milestones.
How is school going?
I’m in survival mode for the next 13 days.
Are you excited to be done with school?
I’m too tired to be excited, but I probably will be once I take my last final.
What are you going to do after you graduate?
Study for the NCLEX, apply for jobs, sleep for a week, take the NCLEX, transition back to being a normal human.
How does being 29 feel?
Where are you going to move?
Currently searching for a moderately-priced pet friendly apartment close to downtown Des Moines, will update when I find a place.
Where are you working now?
Respite Connection – due to my school schedule, I only have one part-time client at the moment. RC is based in Des Moines and is a family-friendly workplace that provides families of special-needs kiddos with respite caregivers and loads of fun community activities. Spread the word.
