conversations with a soon to be nurse

Was talking to Tita E a few weeks back about her choice to move professions, she was once a banker for a few good years until she got tired of it and retired. now she's on a new path to serve people. she has decided to be a nurse.

i understand her neverending quest for knowledge. after retiring from the bank, she decided to pursue a master's degree, after earning her stripes so to speak, now she's halfway there in becoming a nurse. and i have never been so proud of her. i was silently wishing that i could have that thirst for knowledge and the will to study as much as she has.

but i digress. i was asking her how studying nursing was and i was bombarded with a lot of terms that only in the medical profession you'll get to encounter. she was mentioning something about never events , pressure ulcers and elopement . so i had to ask her to explain to me one by one these terms and all the other terms that i heard while watching house, csi, grey's anatomy and all those other medical drama/series.

and i didn't notice that we have been talking (well, her talking most of the time) for almost 2 hours. she was even trying to convince me to try out nursing. but unfortunately i have to decline. i have issues with needles and people in pain.

the next time i see her, i'm sure we'll get to talk about new things in the medical world. and hopefully she'll get to share stories about her encounter in the OR and ER. this is like watching another medical drama!
