Graduand to Graduate

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

I have just returned from Nottingham having had my Graduation today (it was for all Nursing students graduating this year). It was a lovely event and it was fun catching up with my friends and meeting their families. I was so so nervous before going onto stage. I kept thinking my hood was going to fall off as it was very loose despite it being attached to one of the buttons on my blouse. Our colours were cream and blue which looked rather nice.

My favourite part of the day was the reception, where my friends and I kept throwing our hats in the air for┬áthe photographs (I was one of the few people that managed to catch their own hat). After the official proceedings ended, we went to the foyer of the Medical School and our Head of School gave a lovely speech and gave out our Nursing badges. I am now a nurse, wow! It feels good although I’ll miss the friends I made and I’m sure I’ll miss Nottingham. Also, I’m not sure how I feel about not being able to utilise a student discount!
