Quote from Dream_Nurse2b
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
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)
