Well I cannot believe it but I am already down to my last week here at NYU Brooklyn. It has definitely been a whirlwind of new faces and new hospital practices but I am so appreciative of the experience. The days here at NYU were some of the longest I have had as a nurse but I couldn’t be more thankful than to have had this experience. I was able to meet so many amazing people, who I hope to keep in touch with down the road.
Making an impact on people in such a short amount of time is one of the most challenging things while traveling. However, on my last day here at this facility, my coworkers threw a surprise going away party for me with tons of food, cake, and thoughtful wishes. This was such a moving gesture that was tremendously bighearted of them. It’s truly inspiring and such a special moment when my fellow nurses and surgeons come to wish me good luck and compliment my hard work. I couldn’t be more grateful than to have worked at NYU with this incredible staff.
Each experience has various experiences but I truly believe all are individually meant to teach something so one can become a better person. Even though the assignments are typically only three months long, I recommend for everyone to absorb as much as you can and utilize the valuable information into your practice as a nurse and your life as a better person.
“Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.”
