    LOVE ya Holykow, BUT, Angelina is no beauty in my book. Kudos for enduring the whole childbirth/busy living my life thing by the way.

    Let me quote Renee Zrlwegger here, may I ? If your not too busy leaping atall building and puting Martha Stewart to shame for hemlines...

    Number 1: Infants needs to be with Mom, not in daycare while you persue your "it's all about my I-AM-WOMAN saga.

    Number 2: Welcome to allnurses. I bet you make A LOT OF FRIENDS HERE!!!

    Number 3: CLOSE THAT DOOR!!!!! It's freezing in here.

    If your breathing you need to show up.

    j/k.....take care of yourself first and foremost. Best of luck to you. Doesn't sound like your in any shape but to rest and perhaps even go to the MD.

    quit your whining. do you realize how many thousands of nurses before you have suffered illness and still sucked it up to go to school and graduate! all of us have, and many more will. i gave birth right before my june finals, went back 3 days later, took early finals with instructor's approval, passed and was able to spend the summer home with baby. started clinicals at end of august, did care plans while rocking crying infant on lap. i passed with flying colors... this infant is now a 14 year old beauty, an angelina jolie look alike, so now i have my eyes and ears to her activities to keep the boys at bay! and still do studying to keep ceu's up to date! it never ends!
    go ahead, call in sick, missing 1 to 3 days per year is ok. you won't get slam dunked for it, unless your a habitual school skipper, and it sounds like your not, so you won't get kicked out.

    mmmmm, you sound like the kind of nurse i just looooooooove working with. lots and lots of sympathy for her fellow nurse. man i love it! good job. thumbs up!

    i also spent my third semester of nursing school very pregnant, gave birth during my last ob clinical, and returned to school pretty much right away and finished all my exams and finals. funny, i don't have the same holier than thou attitude that you do.

    Well Said Haunted.... :imbar

    The comment about "Quit your whining" was unjustified and RUDE! People come here for support not to get slammed. Comments like that are why it is said that nurses are the only profession which eat their young. Give the girl a break!

    If your sick then you are sick. When in doubt, your staying home protects your patient (which are already compromised in some way) from your germs and thus possible further complications. While many programs have limited time for make up, my school had a way around it. We had to do an extra project that equaled the amount of time lossed including the preparation and presentation of such project to the rest of the clinical group. Usually the project was related to a procedure, illness, or disease one of the patients we would have had.

    Feel better!
