Ok....I have resisted my urge to whine for a while now, but can resist no more! MED/Surg stinks! I am sick to death of it!
(ok, no one remind me that this is the real meat and potatoes of nursing, OK??) My instructor is a she-devil and she is so full of crap most of the time. It is impossible to learn anything from her because I have tried really hard to overlook most of her BS but I have my limit! Lecture is a joke......she talks and talks and never says anything. ENDLESS hours are spent in the book and I never get anywhere, which reminds me, I hate the cardiovascular system! Left sided failure, right sided failure, aortic stenosis, rhythm strips coming out the wazoo....CALGON take me away!
I suddenly find myself HATING school! I can't be burnt out because I'm not even a nurse yet!!! The forces of the universe are laughing like crazy cuz all I have ever wanted to be was a CCU nurse.
OH, and pharmacology.....who was the sadist that thought this stuff up?? We learn it independently at my school. The upcoming pharm test should be fun! I'll try to keep a straight face and resist the urge to start laughing like a mental patient when they hand it out.
I won't even mention those lovely care plans
........the ones that I spend all my time doing....I mean it just doesn't matter that all my patients have diseases and disorders a week before I actually learn the material!
Well, sorry so long, thanks for the vent! I feel better now.
Gator (going back to the books!)
