I have a close friend, who just started nursing school. She was talking about how it is so fast paced for her, and the feeling of metal diarrhea. She posed the question of how blood flows through the heart to me, so I answered ... Read More

    It is the truly intelligent person that knows where to go for the information needed. Nursing school was shotgun info. Yes I read all 5 bazillion pages assigned to me and no i dont remember it all, but i am familiar with it and have collected the resources around me to investigate when i need mental backup. It is funny the things we can recall from 15 years ago in nursing school...."On Old Olympus Towering Top A Fat Arsed...." You get the picture. Cranial nerves 101...LOLOLOLOL

    Peace

    Here's where anatomy class pays off. I can't remember long detailed information about how things work, if they're just words. They have to make sense to me. So, for how the blood flows, I imagine the inside of the heart with all its parts, and picture how the blood flows.

    That was a mouthful. Anyway, she laughed and asked how could I remember something like that when there is so much more to know. And I really didn't have an answer.

    So now, I'm asking you. How do you all remember those things that are at the foundation, when there is so much more for us to know? Is it just natural, have you forgotten a lot, or what? And, do you know how blood flows through the heart?

    Wow you're a pretty good friend to do all this work to help your "friend".
    You can refer her to www.allnurses.com for further help.
    In regards to remembering things. If you are constantly using this information you'll most likely easily remember it because it's used so often. Regardless, if the information is something you use regularly or not...you should have some sort of reference to fall back on. The internet, drug guides, palm pilot or those little flip books tailored to a specialty.

    To the other poster involving cranial nerves:
    Oh, oh, oh to touch and feel a girls v*****...sweet heaven!

    Some say marry money, but my brother says big b**** matter more (S=sensory nerve, M=motor nerve, B=both)

    Look at my vagina

    Lorazepam=Ativan
    Midazolam=Versed

    Made up by yours truly 'cause I kept getting them mixed up, and since the concentrations of each differ (amongst other things, of course), I wanted to be able to "translate" on the spot.

    Purposefully scatological for improved retention.
