last shift sunrise

last shift sunrise
finished my placement yesterday all signed off and passed. i have to say it was actually quite emotional leaving. i suppose it has a lot to do with the type of work that goes on in rehabilitation wards. often providing the most intimate of care whilst having a laugh and a joke, and watching patients gain in their independence. it's been the most rewarding job i've ever had.

dear mr lansley, if the nhs still exists by the time i qualify i really wouldn't mind a job in nursing.

well done Kate. It is not a job I could ever do but I think people who can (and love it) are amazing. What's next at skool?

julbags- thanks... hope i don't sound too 'i'm brilliant me'-not what i meant. just feel so pleased that finally i've found a job that genuinely enjoy (most of the time!). now it's back to lectures for a few weeks before winter holiday :)
