There is a scene in the HBO John Adams mini-series of last summer where the Continental Congress has just decided to declare independence from Great Britain. After all the huzzah’s and much applause, the representatives slowly come to fully realize what this decision means and the camera pans over faces that have fallen from joy into concerned frowns about what the future now holds.
My Nursing program begins in a matter of hours and I feel much the same way. The excitement has boiled down to “what the hell was I thinking!?” Just as you can hardly recall The Declaration of Independence, there is no taking this decision back.
