Hey everyone! Last week I took the final written portion of the National Board Exam (Part 2). I’m so glad it’s over. I studied really hard so all I can do now is keep my fingers crossed until we find out our scores at the end of January!
Now for some GREAT news… I found out yesterday that I PASSED the Clinical skills series of the National Board Exam (Part 3)!!! That’s the exam I had to travel to Charlotte, North Carolina to take back in October. I was pretty confident about that one but it’s still a relief to see that little “P” next to my score on their website haha!! I’m another step closer to being an Optometrist!
I’ve had a busy couple of weeks since Thanksgiving with NBEO and a few Christmas parties already. Also, a group of us 4th years went to see “The Nutcracker” last weekend at The Orpheum, featuring the Memphis Ballet and the Memphis Symphony. It was amazing! All these years I’ve lived in Tennessee and that was my first time to see a show at the Orpheum, it is beautiful! And this week we had to give a presentation for our Contact Lens rotation based on a patient encounter we have had this semester. It’s always good to learn from your colleagues about their experiences.
I’ve only got 2 more weeks at SCO and then it will be off to my next (and final) rotation outside of our Clinic. I’ll be spending the next 4 months at West Tennessee Eye, here in Memphis. I am looking forward to a change of pace but will also miss everyone at The Eye Center and SCO.
I wish you all Happy Holidays and a great start to the New Year, 2012. THE YEAR I GRADUATE WOOHOO!!!!
