Second semester of my ADN program.
Title says it all. Though I would post a happy post (:
I love clinical even though we have to do those 2 careplans the night before because I've noticed how it took me 13 hours for one cp and now it takes me 6-7 for TWO.
I love clinical even when I completely say or do something that isn't right because I learn.
Even when I get a nurse who flat out tells me to get out of her way and she repeats the whole time "I'm not a teacher... I just do and go", and how wrong she was because I still learned from this clinically experienced LVN.
I LOVE when what I learned in theory makes more sense in clinical.
I really enjoy when I get a challenging patient, it gives me the privilege of understanding humans at low times of our lives better.
I really love how I have been blessed with somehow ending up in the ICU d/t being in dialysis or respiratory. Something about the ICU so far has caught my eye. From the outside it seems so slow, but there's so much going on. Its human nature in the raw at the lowest and at the highest, a culmination of knowledge and skills.
I love getting those chances to educate my patients... I've figured out they actually (when they are ready) do enjoy information and its an honour another human trusts me with their life.
but I won't lie... I am scared at times. I realise I haven't even touched an atom of the mountain odd nursing knowledge.
so I can only rely on 3 things to help this guy out (me).
and an Open Mind.
goodnight AN, I have a major neuro/htn/pvd/eye/skin test tomorrow in medsurg.
