    Oh yeah, never put an NG tube in either while in school. And have only done so in babies ..... many many babies.
    Oh, I forgot about this . . . yeah, I've done that too. When I think NG, I think adults.

    Well, it's certainly not pleasant to place an NGT in an awake adult! Not my favorite nursing task...

    In fact, I usually titrate up the dosage of meds quickly on my vented pts who need them placed. No need to be awake for such a thing.


    However, I DID place an NGT on a baby in nursing school. It was pretty cool!

    I made it through nursing school without ever ...

    Inserting a foley (touchy subject male to female) ...

    Starting an IV (not until you grad, we're lucky we even get to flush them) ...

    Crying (There's no crying in baseball ...oops, wrong topic) ...

    Puking (I almost lost it once, decubiti and colostomy is definately a lethal combo) ...

    And that's about it.

    Well, I just finished my last semester this week and I can say that I made it through nursing school without ever starting an IV.

    I made it through without ever inserting an NG..though I came close. The dr looked at the pt and told her if she didn't drink the charcoal in the next 5 minutes..he was going to tell the student to put the big tube down. Lol...she chugged it.

    That was me until tonight. It was everywhere but by the time I had gotten all my supplies the patient had stripped the sheets off her bed and cleaned it all up.
