Please, reblog this to help me gain some fans!
We often think of nursing as giving meds on time, checking an X-ray to see if the doctor needs to be called, or taking an admission at 2:00 a.m. with a smile on our faces. Too often, we forget all the other things that make our job what it truly is: caring and having a desire to make a difference.” -Erin Pettengill
As a newborn, I didn’t drink breast milk. I had a lot of lung problems. From what I gathered, I think I had Respiratory Syncytial Virus RSV, my prognosis was asthma. My antibiotics were discontinued, my parents bought a goat. They named her BASIA (happy birthday Barbara Zubek). For a year I drank the milk, and all my problems went away. Pure goat milk closely compares to human milk. A trace mineral, Selenium, boosts immunity and it strengthened my immune system. Ghandi and I are very similar. “Ghandi himself restored his own health after extremely long periods of fasting through drinking raw goat’s milk” (Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND). On top of this, I almost have an umbilical hernia as a baby, which was cured by taping a wax ball to my belly).

That is my life.

69 pages back to back of Obstetrics for first exam made out of about 11 modules. Having a 7 week class with only 2 exams, SUCKS!
I saw one of you students have this game. I bought it on amazon for $23 and got it today!
Fetal Heart -Special Circulatory Pathway
Not only is this amazing concept, but it has blown my mind.
notbutafantasy asked: when do you come back to south florida?
I am not planning on it anytime soon, unless my agent wants me to go next August to shoot again with the same guy.
I found this article on Scrubsmag.com written by Sean Dent..
“But first, here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a path:
- Being a student in no way reflects how your life will be like as an nurse in the workforce
- Some of the worst students make the very best nurses.
- Some of the best students make the very worst nurses
- Grades are only a number. Passing is passing. What matters most is what your patients think and feel about your care.
- Just because you could care for one, or two, maybe even 5 patients as a student, doesn’t mean you will be great at it as a nurse
- Just because you couldn’t handle more than two patients as a student, doesn’t mean you won’t excel as a nurse.
- Delegation is the bond that strengthens and saves your day, and your team’s day.
- You will ALWAYS be behind, get used to it.
- You will ALWAYS have charting to do, get used to it.
- The doctors are only scary, if you let them be.
- Respect is not given, but earned.
- You will never know everything, get used to it.
- When choosing between arrogance and fear- fear will save your life, and your patient’s life EVERY TIME.
- You haven’t begun to understand what tired really is.
Do you remember that moment as a student nurse where you just ‘got it’. You found a level of comfort that just ‘clicked’ for you. Everything else around you kind of fell into place. Even if it was only a brief moment, we have all had that “AH-HA” moment as a student. When the books, the skills, the practice, and the fear all meshed together and just ‘worked’. No matter how brief that moment was for you, it mattered.
Do you remember that same moment where everything just did not go well. You felt uncomfortable. You felt uneasy. You were ‘all-thumbs’ that day. You forgot your basic skills. You sat back during that moment, and after that moment and said to yourself, “What the heck?”. More importantly you had to ‘force-feed’ this moment to yourself because you knew you needed it to graduate, you knew you needed it to pass and become a nurse, but other than that, it was like eating nails.
What area of nursing should you pursue? – That area of nursing where you experienced the ‘AH-HA’.
Do you know what area of nursing is not made for you? – The area of nursing that was ‘force-fed’.”
I still don’t have my ah-ha moment, but the bullet points definitely helped me out.
I received some unedited previews from the Florida shoot and I put them together in paint. I cannot wait for the finished material.
