Hi everyone! My name is Rachel and I am a student at the University of Maryland Baltimore School of Nursing at USG. I am originally from Baltimore (Go Ravens!) but I am currently residing in College Park. USG is an amazingly diverse and exciting community and I am truly honored to be a part of it.
When I’m not practicing medication administration in the lab, enjoying a vanilla latte at the Green Grove Café, or meandering around our charming little campus, I like to watch Parenthood and The Mindy Project (hands down the best shows on television), hang out with friends, run along nature trails, discover new snack foods at Trader Joe’s, and read whatever books I have sitting on my bedside table.
I am so excited to continue my journey as a USG student blogger and I am delighted that you have found yourself here on the most wonderful of webpages; I promise you will not regret it! Over this next year, I will be taking you along with me as I conquer those standardized NCLEX style-nursing exams, venture to my clinical sites, and prepare to take on the real world as a BSN Registered Nurse! Thus far I have found a wonderful community of classmates and faculty that you will surely get to know and experience, all from the comfort of your own home. So to all the aspiring nurses out there, welcome to your future, and to everyone else, thanks for joining me on this journey; I can’t wait!
