When you read the title of the post I bet you thought I had made another quilt…WRONG!! Kalissa graduated from nursing school and is ready to take her RN nursing boards.
We went to the pinning ceremony on Thursday afternoon. We were proud to see that she was one of her graduating class to speak at the ceremony. She’s like her momma…public speaking comes easy to us both.
She dedicated her pin to her Dad. He’s a first responder and has always shared his love of the medical field with her. I love this picture. He never smiles when he gets his picture taken and this was as smiley as he gets.
I couldn’t let a chance go by and not get my picture taken with her.
Of course I couldn’t not get a picture of her and Craig….They are such a cute couple.
After pinning she was off to graduation services for the whole college. She sang the Star Spangled Banner for that event.
She doesn’t know for sure if this is the last stop on her nursing education road. She sometimes thinks of going on for her BSN. She likely would be currently around here, the pay bump isn’t a lot. For the summer she’s just going to work and by mid July she’ll see if she wants to start in the fall.
For those of you long time readers remember it wasn’t all that long ago when she was trying to decide if she wanted to be a nurse or paramedic. That was back in January of 2013…and look where she is now.
We are all so happy for her. She’s loved being a CNA..and an LPN…I’m sure she’s going to love being a nurse too!! CONGRATS Kalissa!!
