A Day in the Life

Nursing student Clay Clark (J2) gives us a look at a typical day on campus at the University of Texas at Austin, in particular around and about the School of Nursing.

It’s 8:29 and time to head to class. (This is considered sleeping-in to a nursing student!)

Yet even then, it’s never easy to get out of my nice, comfortable bed.

View of street and buildings

At least I get a nice, refreshing walk from Jester (my dorm) to the nursing building.

Seriously, just look at this view. And this is practically downtown Austin!

I hope we look more thrilled than we are for Adult Health this morning. (Trust us, Mrs. Peters really is a fantastic professor!)

Hanging out and eating O’s with friends between classes with a killer backdrop of downtown Austin.

Time for Mental Health! (I apologize to my friends I caught off guard…)

Listening to the always hilarious Mrs. Walker talk about mental illnesses.

Time to practice some tracheostomy suction. Around here, when they say hands-on, they mean hands-on!

Adult Health studying, here we come. At least we’re in the brand new Student Activity Center.

Wait, what is a cystoscopy again?

And finally, time to unwind at a Senate Financial Directors meeting atop the SAC with — again — a phenomenal view. (Yes, everywhere on campus is beautiful!)

And so ends another day in the life of a UT Austin School of Nursing student. Did you get to see some of your favorite spots? If we didn’t include a photo of a place you think says “School of Nursing,” let us know!
