Our school had a work study program where we could work in the evenings assisting students in the skills lab, computer lab or library. I applied for the library assistant program and was glad that I was offered the spot. We had jobs to do but when it wasn't busy and we were done with our tasks, we were able to study. However, being a library assistant had another perk. Our librarian.
Darlene was not only a useful resource in the library for our classwork, she understood the pressures we were under. She was a wonderful sounding board for when the pressure made us feel as if we were going to pop. She helped me put things back in perspective and help be my compass grounding me and pointing me back in the right direction. She not only did this with issues related to school but in my personal life as well. Again, I will point out that I was 18 and on my own for the first time. I assure you there were personal trials and tribulations in the three years I spent at nursing school. My experience would not have been the same if had not been for our talks in the library.
I'd like to help all of you honor a special woman in your lives.
