This past weekend was by far, the best weekend of my life. I spent it with my girlfriend, hung out with my best friend in Pomona, and forged memorable and everlasting (hopefully) friendships with a bunch of amazing student nurses from SDSU. To top it off, I actually learned and took a lot away from attending the convention. On Friday, I attended a four hour resume workshop, which I took advantage of by getting my resume reviewed. An added bonus was that I got to meet a surprisingly nice RN manager (ICU, to boot!) who heads a couple hospitals in NorCal! She complimented me on my resume and interpersonal skills and gave me her business card and contact information and told me to get in touch with her after graduation for a spot in one of her ICUs :D that by itself made me the happiest man on Earth. Although, her hiring situation may be different by the time I graduate in March, I was ecstatic to hear from a RN manager that she wanted me in her ICU! After the resume workshop, I had my resume reviewed again and it was yet another fantastic experience. My resume was reviewed by a really nice lady who also complimented me on the format and content of my resume. She and I put our minds together to improve my resume even more and now I really like it! She made a side note about how if I had already been licensed, she would’ve written a darn letter of recommendation into an ICU residency program on my behalf! Darn it. Haha. Little did I know…that the lady who reviewed my resume was the CEO of the ACNL! Holy. Fucking. Shit. When I found out later, I was sort of star struck. She was a huuuuuge influence in this field of health care and the fact that would even compliment my resume was surprising to me. I’m just a mediocre nursing student! Maybe she was just in a good mood haha.
I’m kinda tired now. I just came home from my flight back from LA and have a ton of work to do tomorrow. I’m gonna leave my summary of the convention off until I’m free again (maybe later in the week). I can’t wait to write it all down. Friday was significant, but nothing compared to Saturday!
On a side note, it feels good to be back. Gotta brush the dust off my writing skills (or not).
