Once A Nurse
I am thankful for the knowledge I received at Georgia Baptist School of Nursing. Now days Diploma Nurses are a thing of the past. For three years we worked hard to become RNs and we graduated knowing how to do anything that was required of us. I have heard that new nurses these days have a preceptor with them for at least six months to train them due to the lack of clinical experience.
Georgia Baptist is now a part of Mercer University in Atlanta and the school recently held Alumna Day. A friend of mine shared some pictures which she graciously allowed me to use here on my blog.
When the Class of 1976 celebrates their 50 year anniversary we will be guests of honor at the luncheon. 10 more years!!
As I have said before, I learned so much during my three years at school there. I attended First Baptist Church where Dr Charles Stanley taught. I learned a lot about friendship and I am so thankful for the life long friends I made at GBH. I learned a lot about life and death while walking those hall at the hospital. I met my husband at Georgia Tech, which was a huge bonus and blessing! And I remember so much of what I learned because of teachers who expected a lot out of young women. I can run the category in Physiology on Jeopardy because of Miss Mary Kate Tribble, who taught us about the workings of the body. The three years I spent at GBH School of Nursing were truly some of the best of my life. Thanks to this wonderful school for continuing its teaching and nursing ministry.
