Connotation:

Little

Fact no. 1
I used the word “Little” because I am still a student taking up B.S in Nursing at Far Eastern University, Manila and is currently on my senior year.

Fact no. 2
I only stand ____ feet. LOL! Oh well, that’s a secret but here’s a clue, I am no more than 5 foot (that’s pretty small right?). Good thing, I know someone smaller than me but I’d rather not talk about it. T_T

Fact no. 3
My mother and my friends use to call me a “Little Nurse” when I am in my RLE (Related Learning Experience) and Clinical uniform (‘cause you see, we have many sets of uniform in FEU) which are all in white and I walk carrying my CHN (Community Health Nursing) bag. According to them, I looked like I was just a little girl playing “like” a nurse.

Nars

Fact no. 1
I used the word “Nars” because whenever I talk to my relatives, they always pronounce the word “nurse” as “nars” and at times they would add –ing, “narsing” referring to the course I am taking up and I would just laugh about it. (Don’t you find it funny? LOL!)

Fact no. 2
Nars is how most Filipinos pronounce “nurse” since Filipinos have native tongues and to add that nursing course is very rampant nowadays. Everywhere you go in whatever time it is, you will see people wearing an all-white uniform or a scrub suit.

Fact no. 3
I want to promote the Philippines and the Filipino people. How Filipina cares and serve others, How a Filipina survives each day despite of many hindrances for example, being “little” (ouch!) but of course, in accordance to the nursing field.

Fact no. 4
I want to share the daily accounts and inner thoughts of a Filipina nursing student. You may think of all the benefits this career choice can bring but I tell you, studying nursing is hard, but being a registered nurse is harder (and I can see it)

The idea of the blog was created just this May 2008 (I can’t remember the exact date) by me and was inspired by the many nursing blog that I had visited and been visiting. So, thanks to all of you. I’ll try to link them in some of my posts.

I am hoping to meet other Filipina Student Nurses and Filipina Nurses working here in the Philippines and Abroad.

This blog is sponsored by my brother, Jeric. I asked him to buy this domain for me. Actually, He bought it weeks ago but it’s just now that I had the time to make it functioning. LOL! So, another Thanks to Jeric.

This is the LittleNars Badge which I made:

The background that I used were my nursing books namely: Pharmacology by Kee and Hayes, Medical-Surgical Nursing by Brunner, Maternal and Child Nursing by Piliterri, Fundamentals of Nursing by Kozier and Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology by Seeley. Those books are just some, there are a lot more and a lot bigger… LOL!

Please feel free to copy this badge and promote this site. Thank You!
