Where have I been, Book tube and Current read.

Front garden.jpgHello my lovely beauty and book followers.  AGAIN I have been gone for over a week.  Sometimes life just gets in the way.

As many of you know that follow me I am a full time nurse, and that includes a variety of shifts as my job is 24/7.  This is not the first time I have posted about this.
This week I have been on 4 night shifts which were busier than I planned, therefore I did miss breaks so I was not able to read in free time to get a review up and ready for you today.
Thursdays night shift was BAD, oh my goodness, by Friday morning I was so tired, exhausted I just wanted my bed.   Since then I have not been able to switch my body clock back as I do have another night shift tomorrow…. Boo, then back onto 3 days.
But I can assure you I am going to be reading this week.

Good reads cover

I plan to finish this book this week, I am half way through and it is very good.  I am definitely going to get back into reviewing, I was doing so well for a month haha.  Ooops.

Here is the link to me introducing the book to you:  New Read: In His Corner

I brought up in a previous post that I was thinking of starting Book tube as a new way to share my love for books.  As well as sharing my love for makeup like I do on this blog.  

I have set up a new channel, and uploaded 3 videos that I did about 3 years ago before my life became hectic, but I am serious and ready to start it very soon.
Please check them out and advise me, if you’re a book tuber please comment below and help me out, it is really appreciated.  Link below

Nurse life

This is my fourth week at my first job as a nurse and my 2nd week where I am working alone.  It has been a struggle not going to lie, I’m tired, stressed and emotional at times.  No one said it was going to be easy but the transition from student nurse to staff nurse is difficult. As soon as I swapped into my blue uniform , doctors spoke to me, people actually asked me more questions, and I felt people and patients really listened to my opinions and health advice.  I’m not saying that anyone was being mean to me before, but it proves that a different look makes people view you differently.

My first week I did have a few tears on a couple shifts but that’s normal, I don’t want any future students reading this and freaking out. It is just hard transitioning knowing that there isn’t a mentor following my every move…..checking all details and ensuring I have enough information.  I am now on my own, obviously I can ask other nurses but these patients I have, they are mine, I am caring for them, they are my priority right now, if they are ill I need to know that and act upon it.  It’s a big responsibility however I still love being a nurse 😊.  I may be tired, worn out and a bit sore from being on my feet all day, but it’s worth it knowing you have touched someone’s life and their families and made them feel better, and to let them know they are not alone and that someone cares and will make their time in hospital comfortable but also making sure that the patient has everything they need to go home safely.


First day as a nurse 

Oh my god today was amazing! I can now say I am a nurse which was such a weird feeling…. It’s amazing how much changes from being a student to a nurse.  Doctors spoke more to me and really wanted to hear my decision, and I took more control and made more decisions regarding my patients.  The confidence that has come over me is huge. I don’t even care about the 5am wake up I was dancing round the house in my uniform lol because I am a child.

If you want more updates on my journey as a nurse please comment below and perhaps follow me through my transition from student nurse to nurse and what comes along with it all 😃, leave your comments below or tweet me @creechhan

I’m a nurse

I cannot believe it but friday was my last day in this uniform as a student nurse.

For those that have followed me on Twitter or this blog know that the last 3 years have been a struggle for me.  Myself and Craig (my fiancé). Have moved in together, struggled with money which meant I was close to dropping out of uni, moving again but my sister lived with us for 1 year.  I have also struggled with the course as I have had to resubmit essays 😔, those times were the hardest,   However now I am finished, and will be a staff nurse starting my first job in 2-3 weeks time 😁.

I am finally able to wear my blue uniform and put all my learning into practice finally with my own patients.  Obviously I still have a long way to go and more learning, as with this career I will never know enough and therefore need to make sure I keep my knowledge up to date.

I am looking forward to my graduation which is on the 26th September 😆 I think my mum is more excited than me haha.

This is such a huge milestone for me and I thank you all for coming on this journey with me.  And I hope to give you more of my time as now I will have the money and resources to make this blog better than it has been, but of course I still need a month to achieve this. 😀 

If you have questions please leave them in the comment section and feel free to tweet me @creechhan 😀 I will reply straight away I promise.
Love Hannah xx ( STAFF NURSE COURT) hehe  

Busy Student Nurse

Hello my lovelies,

I am soo sorry that I have been unable to post anything beauty or book related but I have been super busy lately and will be unable to post anything to you all for another 3 weeks.
At the moment I have just finished producing an essay and poster to submit Tuesday which I finished just today  (phew) just a week early.  This week I have to revise my anatomy and physiology for an exam next Monday which I am scared of as I need to know a lot of conditions, treatments, nursing assessments and medication by then eek.

I then have another two exams followed by a practical exam.
My two exams are okay one is a retake on Randomized controlled trials and the other on conditions and medication calculations which I am more confident on as I did well in that last year.
So far I am happy with my second year of nursing I have passed all my essays so far and only need to retake one exam which was difficult to do.
Compared to last year I had already been referred in two essays but this time last year and was panicking (super stress freak here).

The one test I am nervous for but happy about is my practical which is called an ISCE this year where I need to demonstrate nursing skills on a patient at the university and I will be marked on EVERYTHING that I do from communication, hand washing and personal appearance.

That is all happening in the next 3 weeks, once they are done I will just be in placement until the end of July. but I will be able to read more in June and July and may have more money to review some more beauty products for you all, just bare with me please.  I just need to focus on these few things and then I will be back with a couple months worth of reviews and may have my sister help me too.

My sister may be popping up on my blog as she is moving in with my fiance and I to make it easier with money and so that we can spend some time together before we both go separate for our careers, where ever they may take us.

If you have requests from previous posts about books I have yet to read, or you want to know how I revise, the books I use or more of my life please feel free to comment below or ask me on twitter I am always available to answer them.

Miss you all
