2 weeks…10 work days. How is it possible that this is all that is left to the final chapter of our PT school journey? After 22 weeks on the job of our final internship, we have a mere 2 weeks left to soak up the knowledge that our CI’s have to offer, to say goodbye to patients who have become part of our PT lives, and to find the confidence to take the next steps towards our first jobs as actual PT’s.
We will have 2 weeks off to recuperate and spend time with family and friends for Thanksgiving, in between clinical and our last week back on campus. The first week of December, we will reconvene (who knew I could be so excited to return to classes) for our final week. It will be filled with learning at a continuing education course, licensure board review with our classmates, and our exit interviews, amongst the time we get to spend with each other catching up and finalizing this chapter of our lives together.
It is absolutely unbelievable to be at this stage of the game. I am humbled and grateful to be where I am today. I wish I could better articulate what it feels like to be at this point, but instead, I will just enjoy these last few weeks. I will do everything I can to soak up as much learning and time with friends and teachers as possible. I owe it to the past 3 years.
