well i survived my first day of Nursing school
, to tell you the truth i had a blast. i have a great very cool patient down to earth instructor so i know that my beginning nursing skills and knowledge will be a great experience. We did math for half the day and Nursing theory for the other half. In the math we reviewed conversions, metric, apothecary(which sucks btw, i hate it) and practiced a lot. She had a test bank and gave us all the problems so we could get it down before th test in a few weeks that we can only miss one on. i feel very very confident about the math, people reading this if you are afraid of the math, don't be its not that hard just find a way t solve dosage calcs and review conversions and equivalents, and practice all you can. Then for the rest of the day we had Nursing lecture and I learned all about Florence Nightingale, and the Knights of St Lazarus, and i really liked Martha Rodgers view points about how humans have a dynamic energy field, it was just very interesting talking about all the nursing theorists and pioneers. I found out that some of our lecture will actually be like labs which i find a bit odd, but next week we get to learn a Physical EXAM, woo hoo i cant wait to start learning nursing skills. Friday i have actual lab which probably will be an orientation of the lab and some general basic basic skills like hand washing. Hope you all had as much fun as i did. If you care to share your stories that would be awesome!!!
