I love hearing about everyone's experiences!! I graduated with a class of 44, I have only spoken to a few of my classmates but love hearing about their new jobs!!
For me..I am working in a cardiovascular ICU, am still interning and will be on my one the third week in Sept.
Some of the new things I have done are: Extubating patients, I was nervous about this but after 4 patients I am feeling a little more confident. Caring for a patient receiving CVVH..something I never thought I would do..but have, its time consuming! Pulled Swan lines, cardioverted a patient and last week I got a blind stick on a patient with the help of my preceptor!! I couldnt feel a thing but he swore he could..so he directed my aim and I got the stick..talk about excited, I was told I have bragging rights for at least a month..LOL
I am loving my job!! Its so exciting to do things I studied about for 4 years
