Just wanted to share some great news with all of you!

My fortune cookie from two weeks ago told me:

... and guess what? It was right!


As many of you guys know, I've been pursuing my nursing career ever since I started blogging on Threadless, which was 5 years ago. Seriously, you guys have been with me throughout the whole process. You've seen me get rejected from my first application for the program, you've seen me get accepted into it a year later. For two years, some of you have seen me studying my butt off, dealt with my roller coaster of emotions, seen me graduate, and a whole bunch more.

I still remember getting the call telling me I got into the program, walking the stage a year ago, and celebrating officially becoming a nurse with Threadfriends during Combocon.

Less than 3 weeks ago, I got a call from a hospital telling me they wanted to set up an interview with me. That next week, I had my very first interview, and that led to a second interview. Let me tell you this. I started to doubt myself as the days passed by, but it all changed an hour ago.

I got the call from the hospital, and they offered me a position on one of their units! I accepted, so it's official! I am an employed registered nurse!

From my bloggerraiser entry last year:

Surviving the nursing program would not have been possible without Threadless. Every time I was stressed out, I would turn to a Threadless friend or the blogs to decompress. The program was very stressful at times, but chatting with people from the site helped put me at ease. You guys have been with me right from the beginning. You've seen me get rejected the first year I applied to the program, and have followed me ever since. Without all of the love, support, and encouragement, none of this would have been possible. Look at me now! I'm officially a registered nurse! I love you guys. :D

SAY WHAT?!?!?!?!?

The exact date hasn't been given to me yet. I'm still waiting for another call from one of the other nurse directors who will give me all of the details. The first director I spoke to said she thinks orientation begins on July 5th or 11th.


Shit man I've been off the comp for a week or so and I hadn't seen this. Huge congrats! I know exactly how great news like this feels bask in it, and enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with a hard days work.

Also you should get some hot pink scrubs.

ir0cko profile pic Alumni

QBF, no way! I want to become an OR nurse in a couple of years! Yeah she's a sister in gynaecology o.r., but she's worked in orthopaedics, general all over. She much prefers it to ward nursing, mainly because the patients are anaesthetised most of the time!!!


goatse scrubs?


A bajillion tons of congrats to you, Randy!! And I so admire you for hanging in there and never giving up. I know how hard it is to work so hard for your dream job and then not be able to find the work.

This is wonderful news and I am SO SO SO excited for you!! :D
