Welcome to my blog! Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Maria and I was recently accepted into National University’s Accelerated BSN Program! Here you will read about a Latina (me of course) living in sunny so-cal and my adventures in nursing school. I created this blog not only to show but to prove that nursing school is not all that it’s said to be. I’m tired of reading and watching videos stating that nursing school is so difficult, you will have no life, and my favorite forget about spending time with your family! I don’t know about you but growing up in a Hispanic culture, family is very important to us, and I don’t think I can give up family time for the next two years! Don’t get me wrong I’m sure nursing school will have its challenges but I am confident that I will be successful in nursing school without having to give up those I love as well as my life!
Here you will also find tons of useful tips not only regarding nursing school but also how to survive when working in the medical field! Having worked in the medical field for the last thirteen years I have picked up a few things and have definitely worked with my share of difficult people, you can even say Iv worked with Satan herself! Yup! Believe it or not, after working with this person I can literally work with anyone in the world! I will eventually post a blog about this, but you will have to be sure to follow my blog to know all the juicy details!!
Another reason I created this blog was in hopes to inspire more Latinas/nos to join me in advancing our education I would like to see more RN’s, NP’s, PAs and even MD’s in the medical field. In my years working in the medical field, there have only been a handful of nurses that I have personally met that are Latinas/nos and that needs to change! So I am here as a testament to show that yes we can succeed and were not the stereotypical Mexican with five plus kids, which again there is nothing wrong with that! But I feel that it is time that we start conquering the medical field and show that we too can be very successful! So welcome to my blog or should I say life!
Apparently, I need one because it doesn’t seem to be clear enough that these are MY personal opinions! Everything I write about is my personal experiences that I have been put through. If you are offended by what I have gone through in my life, I’m sorry you feel that way. This is a personal blog, my personal blog, and there will be situations I write about that can make a person uncomfortable. (Think about this- how do you think I felt when put through certain situations)
IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT. Don’t approach me and try to attack me on my life experiences.
