I had a conversation with a classmate yesterday that has been replaying in my mind ever since it made contact with my brain.
After anatomy lab my fellow nursing major classmate and I decided to go grab a meal together. As we ate sushi at Crave on Guadalupe (I recommend it, good stuff) we discussed the nursing program, our experiences in EMS and how they are and aren’t relating to our education at UT (she is an EMT-B) and the vast array of things two gals can manage to chat about over lunch.
During lunch my classmate mentioned that this semester was reportedly the most challenging semester in the program. My ears perked up and I swear I heard the sound of an excited crowd giving a round of applause. YES! It all makes sense now. I transferred into one of the best nursing schools in Texas in the most challenging semester possible? I felt at once a mix of hilarity, pity and joy.
I glanced at my planner after I left the restaurant and my classmate and counted the weeks left in my sprint to the finish.
