So I know I haven’t been here in a while but I met with one of my professors yesterday which went from 0 to 60 in 3.5.
She brought up that I’m rather shy which is why I’m having some trouble with one of my clinical rotations. I broke down when she said that, I’ve worked sooo hard to get passed that and it doesn’t seem to be gone yet. But she turned it around and said that there is nothing wrong with that and that it actually shows in my work that I’m sincere and that I care about my patients. Mind you, I thought I was handing in straight trash but I guess not.
What’s funny though is that she mentioned how she’s noticed that some people are only in this program for the money…..I just thought about it and initially I was in it for the money but I guess after getting kicked out and reflecting, I realized that my career choice is my true calling. I guess it just took some time to realize that I truly want to help and that I hate seeing people suffer.
Anyways, that’s all for now. Have a beautiful day!
Yuppp, Cindy the social worker said that today during orientation to the facility that we’re going. Not going to lie, I died when she said that! Think about it, old people still have sex and still want that intimacy that they used to have years ago.
Anyways, I feel like such a social butterfly and I hope it continues on during my nursing career because it’s such a helpful trait to have. All you have to do is say, “Hi, how are you today?” BAM conversation is made and you create a new level of trust with people. I’M PUMPED FOR THIS ROTATION!
But that’s all, I don’t want to bore you guys with the other things that are happening in my life! Have a wonderful weekened everyone!
I’m done counting days because I’ve lost track but here’s what is grinding my gears right now. Even if a professor “has it out” for her students by giving a 40 question “quiz” in 40 minutes just do it. She’s preparing us for the NCLEX and is a blessing in disguise! Yes there are 6 chapters that we need to know but what if a patient asks us what they can/can’t have with a certain med and our response is “uhh, let me go get the doctor”, no the patient is asking you the question, NOT the doctor. So cut the whining and take the quiz, we’ll look back later on and think about how easy that exam truly was.
I’m done, I just needed to get that out of my system.
These men are window washers at a children’s hospital in Pittsburg. Some might think the job is menial, but to the kids who are horribly ill, looking out their window seeing their favorite superhero at their window makes all the pain go away for a bit. And that would make the job worthwhile.
I’m fucking crying stop that I’ve got the motherfucker of all coughs
Ok so I’ve lost track of the days! I’m pretty sure today is day 12 if I’m basing it off of my last post. Anyways, I finally had my mental health class on wednesday and let’s just say that my anxiety is starting to go through the roof. There’s so much busy work to do which I can do but it just gets annoying after a while. Whatever, I can do this though!
Next week I need to get my shit together though because I’m pretty sure I have three exams/quizzes the following week. One for pharm on monday, and a medsurge exam as well as a mental health quiz on wednesday.
Wish me luck!
