Just realized like a million other people had the same idea as me – to write a blog about wacky experiences as a student nurse. Since I am just getting started I have entitled this entry “upbeat.” I come from a long line of pessimists so I am going to use this blog to self-motivate myself to be the optimist I want to be!

Perhaps if I write like the optimist I want to be – I will become the optimist I dream to be and the nurse I want to be. Ok, I don’t want to get sappy from the outset so let me segue into a quick outline of my role models. Do you know Sue Barton and Cherry Ames?
