I'm pretty much just posting because my last post wasn't exactly the most motivating and positive post in the world and I didn't want it to be the most recent thing on my blog!!
So for now I guess I can just do a regular old update. For those who don't know, I will for sure be heading back to school in the fall. Applications are in and getting ready to do the whole loan thing, etc. I'm kinda nervous cuz it's been years since I've gone to school at all, but way excited to actually start doing something with my life. I've been saying I would do it for a while now but now it's actually gonna happen!!
I'm going to get my bachelor's in Human Family Developement in order to do a special program through the state to become a child life specialist. A CLS is someone who does a lot of nurse to patient communications as well as patient education in the hospitals. It's a really wide range of responsibilities. Anything from teaching the child/patient what to expect in a procedure, or educating parents on things that they themselves can do in treatment and care. I will also help the infant unit with babies who are there long term and make sure that they are still learning to develop motor skills and that they don't just lay there all day. I basically take care of the stuff that the nurses simply don't have time to do.
My two roommates are nurses. One works in the infant unit and the other in pediatric intensive care. They both say that they LOVE their CLS's and that she runs herself ragged with all that she has to do to help the kids. I'M SO EXCITED!!! I am going to love it!! Besides, everything I learn is going to help me be a better mom!! :o)
Anyways, that's enough for now. Until next time. Hopefully by next time I'll have some new pictures!! Smiles.
