On Wednesday, I had my first of two orientations for the nursing program that I'll be starting in January. We arrived at our meeting room and funniest thing, as we all took our seats we started summing each other up. I don't know if it was first impression judgements, and maybe I was doing it, but I would look at someone and say "yup they're the outgoing one", or " that's the shy one".
Even though our class size has capacity to hold 16 students, we only have 13 females and one male. Then we had our instructor ask us to put our name tags on, grab the student handbook and away we flew for two hours listening to the rules and expectations of us students. We listened to the dress code, the uniform policy, even the no nail polish/short nail rule that I must say makes me a little sad knowing that I won't be able to participate in wearing nail polish as often as I'd like. We heard about upholding a high reputation in the community and not to display ourselves in a bad light, that we should be proud of our status being apart of the system of schools, it was motivating.
Originally I had been on the fence about the Honor's program but after the orientation, I'm going to give it my best shot.
