Amanda’s Cap & Gown Session

Seniors

/

Sharing a celebration of Amanda today because SHE DID IT!! πŸŽ“πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ₯‚ Woo! Amanda officially graduated and wanted to do something BIG to celebrate allllll of her hard work! Β This fun cap & gown session in downtown Owensboro was the perfect way to capture this huge milestone for her!!! πŸŽ‰ Join us in congratulating the grad…Way to go Amanda!! 😍 Read more about her journey below!

Where did you graduate from?!

“Owensboro Community and Technical College”

What did you go to school for?

“Nursing!”

Who had the biggest impact on you throughout school?

“I’ve been blessed to have many, many great teachers, from kindergarten through high school, and throughout my last 17 years in and out of OCTC. In elementary school, I had a teacher who wasn’t even my primary teacher who had a huge impact on my early development. I met her as Ms Darnell, and I know her today as Mrs Sandra Nall. She helped to foster a love of learning, and has been an incredible cheerleader throughout my life in so many ways. I am blessed to have ever met her, and I wouldn’t be the student and person today without her early and continuing influence.”

What is your favorite memory of your journey?

“I made friends, and I grew away from friends throughout the nursing program. There has been an incredible amount of laughter and tears in the last 5 years, from the time I began my journey in healthcare. There have been so many people who have helped me learn, helped me grow. So many people I’ve met who have been invaluable sources of support, people who I’ve been able to lean on, people who have given me guidance and advice, people who have kept my head up when I didn’t know if I could take the next step. My favorite part has been the people.”

What’s next for you?!

“Next up- start and finish my Bachelor’s degree! I’m already started the enrollment process with Western Governor University’s RN to BSN program.”

What are you most proud of in the last year or two?

“Being a nursing student, and being a healthcare provider, in 2020 has been such an incredibly unique experience, both good and bad. It was an opportunity. I saw the people in my cohort rally themselves to face a once in a lifetime challenge of the sorts we’ve never seen with COVID-19. In the last year, I have worked full time as an ICU SRNA, I’ve been a mother to four kids, I’ve faced hard challenges at home that some wouldn’t be able to face. Add in being in nursing school, an infamously difficult thing to go through in the first place, and then to add in the challenges of facing a pandemic on top of all of that? I’m incredibly proud of myself for having graduated in the first place. Working as an ICU SRNA during the pandemic while in nursing school… it’s a decision every day to get up, to go to work, to study hard, to apply yourself, to learn every day. It’s a challenge every day to go in and be a part of a team that is struggling every day to figure out what to do for their patients and too often not having the right answers.”

What is your advice for others who are in school right now?

“Especially for other nursing students- take it day by day. Nursing school isn’t going to be what you anticipate, it’s going to be so much more. It’s going to be harder than you thought. You’re going to learn more than you imagined. You’re going to meet people who will shape how you look at the rest of the world forever. Be organized. Be prepared for anything. And when push comes to shove, pick the question that’s most likely to kill the patient the fastest on your exam, and treat yourself after you’re done. If the graduating classes of 2020 and 2021 can do it, so can you!”
