Starting the second semester right…

Friday, November 26th, 2010

The start of the second semester didn’t really register in my system until I saw the course guide, reading materials, schedules and the requirements. I still have the hang of my semestral break without those thick modules and “neuron-depleting” FMAs.

Anyway, I must continue and finally set my mind to start reading and reading and reading and reading… Did I just typed “reading” 4x or 5? LOL.

My subjects for the second semester are Adult Health Nursing (N260) and Public Mental Health (IH 220). I was planning to take one subject but I changed my mind because I want to be on time and take all the subjects I can while I am just a volunteer nurse.

The class opened last November 6, 2010 and since then, I printed for I think a REAM of short bond paper for the reading materials. Good thing our printer is on continuous ink (which means I don’t have to worry on printing fees) and my mom has a “ream” of scratch paper to print on. Sadly, after a day of printing, our dear old printer bid its goodbye after serving its purpose for almost 2 years.

My mini-white board and corkboard is active again with writings and pins for schedules and things to read on. Sadly, I must let go the novel I was reading (House Rules by Jodi Picoult) and turn (and tear, yes tear or may I say RIP!) the pages of my modules again.

As with the proposed reading schedule, I must say, I am working really hard to keep on track because I don’t want to cram (like last semester) and overwhelm myself with numerous modules to read near deadline.

It is good to see familiar faces in both subjects I am taking as I read forums posts and I am very positive that I will finish this semester with pride.

So help me God. :]]

Join the very first Nurse’s funrun 2010 on December 5! :]

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Fun Run is becoming a craze now with its different advocacies and causes. Who would have thought NURSES would have its first ever FUN RUN for a cause.

Philippine Nursing Opportunities Conference and Expo presents:

The very 1st NURSE’S FUN RUN 2010 PARA SA KINABUKASAN on December 5, 2010 at the CCP Complex, Roxas Blvd, Manila.
This is not only for Licensed Nurses but also for nursing student or nursing graduate.

The event aims to promote camaraderie among nurses and those in the nursing career, health and wellness through a fun activity and most especially, raise the awareness on the “challenges” faced by nurses in our country…

The registration fee for the FunRun is 600 pesos per pair— which means that the event is a “buddy” system Fun Run where pairs compete for a 3.5 km. run. The pair should start and finish the race together.

Here are the steps for those who are interested to join:

1. You may pre-register online, pay the registration fee at any Metrobank branches (Metrobank Savings Account No: 3-168-08523-1; Account Name: Elite Consultancy / Emma San Juan
