I AM the ONLY one here...
and I'm studying...
and I'm in my PJ's....
BUT - I'm having my own little party right here in my PJ's on my couch!
TODAY was my VERY last day of clinicals!!!
I am DONE.... D. O. N. E. ... DONE with school!!
No more tests (that I know of)
No more homework
No more 3 AM commutes to random clinical sites...
No more grades
No more check offs
(before you get TOO excited - I do still have to take my Boards... which determine my certification... and I'm studying my BUTT off for those...)
I am no longer a student!
Guess what I am.......
A FULL TIME Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.
I got my offer letter yesterday and as soon as I can get this first Board test out of the way, I will begin full time employment in a facility doing exactly what I went to school to do.
And you have to understand..... jobs are not plentiful in this field right now. And the jobs that ARE there, are typically of the PRN nature and taking call.
I however, have the holy grail of ultrasound jobs. A full time daytime position. No nights, no holidays, no call... you get the idea :)
I'm soooooo excited!
And I would like to say a big huge THANK YOU to my almighty God who has set this path in motion LONG before I even knew that the path existed at all! I look back and see the stepping stones that have been being laid for years!!!!!!
Also a big THANK you to all my family and friends who have supported me and prayed for me, along with my teachers and my fellow classmates!
This has been one AMAZING roller coaster of a year....
lots of changes; lots of new friends; lots of new places; and my brain might just explode.....
But this ride is about to pull into the station and begin a whole new journey.
And I thank God above for it ALL!
Keep praying... still have Boards to pass! :)
