Ok Academic side of the program is done :yay:

I now have to complet Pracis which is one on one with a working nurse for 450 hours (unpaid :rolleyes: )

I should be writing my registration test Sept 14th if all goes well.

 

I just came back from a school trip to Occoa Dominicain Rebuplic where we gave free clinics to thousands of people. We went to some very poor areas and I saw first hand the conditions of a 3rd world country. The DR people amazed me with there sense of pride ability to make what they have at hand work! I life changing experience :o

Hey Mark... sorry for the false birthday thing-a-ma-roo... my bad. We'll be sure to get you in November. Cool trip to D.R., see any good baseball prospects?

 

A bitter old man once told me... don't worry about seeing a 3rd-world country. One is coming to you!

Ok I am writing my registration Exam this Wednesday Sept 14th. Six hours of testing then I have to wait six weeks to see if I passed. If successful I will be Registered Practical Nurse.

I have no doubt you will pass. This has been a good journal you have kept... keeping us all abreast on what it takes to retool yourself to fit into this new 'non-3D world' that has somehow emerged. Hope you had a good summer over there on the 'Bruce'... and got a chance or two to get up to Tobermorey for some cliff-jumping or scuba!

Congratulations! I know it was a lot of work, so you should be proud of this accomplishment. You must be excited for your next steps.

 

Will this mean you'll have some time to dive back into A:M, or will we see even less of you around here!

I am hoping to keep some kind of animating activity started again but it's hard to know for sure. ;)

Way to go, Mark! I love hearing about Wiarton... I had me a crazy-drunken night there in about 1986 at the Wiarton Hotel Bar... I'd like to think you were there! Me and a buddy took a weekend trip around the Georgian Bay... crazy times!
