finally cathed a female pt/res

  1. You know how we don't get every opportunity in school clinicals. Some have to wait until the "real world".
    This may be a small thing, but it was a milestone in my mind. I finally had a chance to successfully cath a female to get a UA. I was amazed at how well it went.

    I'm a GPN. My nclex-pn in scheduled for July 7.

    I've never done a gluteal injection yet. I've only given IMs in the thigh or deltoid.
