As is my custom, I took a picture of my group on the first day. I like this group. I spent a little time with each of them individually to get to know them a bit. Interestingly I had the brother of one of them in a class about 8 years ago, and the sister of another in a class about 5 years ago.
The first group I taught. They have been nurses for 10 years now.
After I left the hospital, I realized I forgot to turn in my badge to security, and they had my car keys. So I missed the shuttle bus to the parking area, 1 1/2 miles away. I was going to wait for the next bus, but it was a spectacular afternoon--mid 60s--so I decide to walk. The parking area is actually the parking lot of another hospital that closed last year. It was part of the system I used to work for. It was a nice walk, and I got there at the same time as the shuttle bus I would have waited for.
I climbed up on a bus bench and took this over the fence that surrounds the place now.
The first few clinical groups I had were at that hospital. In fact, some of my own clinical rotations were there as well. They are planning to tear it down and infill houses and a park. I loved the beautiful natural light in the stairwells. Perfect for photography.

When I got home there was a package on the porch with a new 6 quart dutch oven! Can't wait to fool with it this weekend.
