im up at 5:30am.....first day of clinicals

  1. ugh. i am getting ready to leave in 15 minutes, and getting on computer while eating helps keep me awake! though i think eating breakfast this early is going to give me heartburn. my last clinical was a month ago! i want to sleep in! and its only 13 degrees outside!

    i've got 2 pt's, one 2 weeks out after first MI, one with COPD. im sure it'll go well, but hey, its still too early
    are you back to clinical yet?

    Good luck! I'm up at 7 30 am EST and I'm not looking forward to the old NSG theory class. I wish I was in clinicals too!

    It's only - 32 outside. I wish it was only 13 degrees outside as well.

    I hope you have a great day in clinicals. Mine don't start until the 31st of January... But even then I have a psyc rotation outside the hospital for three weeks before I head to the hospital.

    Hope the first day back went well. We dont start clinicals until March but this is our first semester. Our seniors started clinicals yesterday. Guess we have quite a few things to learn. Good luck!

    our first semester we didnt start clinicals until we'd been in school for a month or so. but this is our last semester and we are here in clinicals the 2nd week of school.
    the day was fine. one with some serious resp issues, hacking up yellow sputum, temp of 99.9, o2 sats of 89% on 3L. fun! another having a CABG tomorrow, hopefully i'll be in early enough to do the pre-op stuff. back into the grind.....

    We started clinicals yesterday... but JCAHO was at the hospital, so they politely asked us to wait until they were gone to come back on the floor! :chuckle

    We're doing a contingency plan today - case studies, watching videos, practicing in skills lab. Yuck!

    I'm excited about going back Friday, though - I get to rotate to the OR!

    I have to get up at 5:30 on class days! Yuck! Commuting stinks!
