Today I joined my fellow graduates of OHSU Class of 2011 (we are the 100th graduating class) for graduation in Raider Stadium at SOU campus. I walked 2nd to last out of the 1000 or so graduates on the field. This gave me a lot of time to think about how happy I was and to savor the moment. This day is one I will remember for the rest of my life. The message from one of the speakers: with great power comes great responsibility, so go out and do good in the world! I intend to do just that. To take what I have learned and do my best to give back something beyond the ordinary to the community; to make my mark by practicing my craft of nursing with evidence based knowledge, and love for others.

Tomorrow I graduate with my BSN. It has taken me 5 yrs and a lot of hard work. I am so excited to have achieved my goal! I promised my mom 20 yrs ago I'd finish my degree and I'm finally making good on that :) I am looking forward to passing my NCLEX, and finding my first nursing job. During my time at OHSU I met some amazing people and I am very proud to be graduating along side people that I know will make a huge difference in health care and in the world!

Ben got to come home on May 9th after almost a month in NICU. He is home on oxygen, doing fabulously. I managed to finish all my clinical time and I will be graduating next week!
