    I have an appt. with Al T. on Friday. I also talked to my psych. professor from last semester and he said to see how the semester goes and then decide if I want to continue or pursue something else so that's what I am going to do.
    When you start going to your hospital you will probably have a chance to see what other people do there, like physical therapists, radiology techs, maybe scrub techs. So you compare nursing to their job and decide if you want to continue with nursing. Good luck.

    It's hard to go from major upset to study mode. Keep truckin'....


    I wish you all the best...in whatever you decide to do!

    Amy isn't going anywhere I won't let her! (just to let you guys know) She's my nursing buddy. Amy, you are going to make an excellent nurse.

    I'm sure I just broke every rule of communication--which is what we learned about today, but I'm still learning-so HA

    PS. Jaxia--keep those pom poms handy I have ck off tommorrow!

    lol Spill....good luck!!!!

    I'm glad you both got to practice with Iris. I really enjoyed her way of teaching.


    (We had her show a group of us how to do the catheterization...just to get some things clear. It was hilarious. She went into having to sit there and wait d/t the male patient getting an....well, it may not be PG to say it even though it is medical.


    It was funny how she explains things.






    Did y'all both get to practice by listening to her B/P?

    Who's this Iris lady and how do we get her at ECC?? lol. Amy, it always seems the first tests are the hardest. Now that you know what to expect, the next one should be better. I'm trying to catch up on all my reading and studying today because our test is next week! Take care everyone...

    ok, I failed my first ck off---I couldn't find the radial pulse! I feel so embarrassed! I'm disappointed, and I know it's not the end, but I just feel really embarrassed. I mean, how hard is that!!!!

    I'll be ok, but, just wanted to let you all know how it went.

    I believe Iris goes back and forth to each campus. Iris is the reason why I did really well on my BP. She really does give you good tips! I had the exact number as my instructor. Shout out to IRIS!

    Don't let it get ya' Spill. At least we can all console each other. I'm doing my second try tomorrow. On video. Sometimes that pulse can be hard to find. Jaxia had a hard time keeping mine. How did your lecture test go?

    Sorry about that, Spill. ;(

    The radial pulse is hard to find sometimes, especially when you're nervous!


    Grab every hand you can and check their radial pulse, and then go pass it next time!!!!!

    Spill,

    I am really sorry about your check off. I know exactly how you feel. I agree, Iris is wonderful. When you were practicing radial pulse on me yesterday it seemed that your fingernails were in the way. Do you think that might have had a factor in you not feeling it during checkoff ?

    Amy...did you get to do your recheck today?

    Anybody wondering if there will be a snow day tomorrow? They're saying it won't be bad, but the temp is at the freezing mark and won't get above until after sunup tomorrow...and then snow flurries all morning until noon they say...hmmm.

    Sleepwise, I wouldn't mind. Getting up at 0345 this morning sucked. :chuckle


    Otherwise, I hope it is clear tomorrow.

    Spill -- I'm so sorry to hear that.

    I hope it's not bad -- I don't want to miss the lecture before the test!
