Yes, Lets! Isn't it great! To think that we are on the brink of changing our whole lives. And even though we will have to deal w/ mad patients, be leary of some nurses that we work w/ and doctors that have an attitude, we WILL make a difference in peoples lives.
I am used to working w/ attorney's & judges, so putting up w/ some of the crap doctors dish out will not be too bad. Also, I always will have a client who is always dissatisfied, so the patient thing will not bother me. My biggest fear is dealing with the other people. In a small town like I live in (hating it everyday), the law offices are filled with gossiping, backstabbing women. (and people think yankees are backstabbers, HA!). I really do not want to work around a bunch of nurses, cna's, lpn's that talk bad about others. It is the reality I fear. Wherever we work, that is most likely going to be the case. After reading some of the posts here, it only confirms my fears. But, I plan to stay out of that.
There is talk about the students not having to wear caps in the fall, due to hygeine (did I spell that right?). If I have to, I will buy 3 or 4 to make sure that I can always wear a clean one. It really means a lot to me to wear one. And I know the majority of nurses do not like it. Their reasons are vaild too, I just want to for me.
Do you ever visit the LPN thread-thingy here? It's really interesting. What classes are you taking in the summer? I am going to be taking A & P 1. My stomach has calm down recently, which is good. On Tuesday, I have to go to a Nursing Session at the college that I will go to for RN in 2004 (graduate in July 04 - into RN in Aug. 04). Than on the 24th, I go to another school to register for my A & P 1. THAN on 4/4, I go to the school that I will be attending for LPN for orientation/registration. In total, I will be attending 3 different colleges. WOW!
Well, keep me posted on whats going on w/ you & I will do the same. We can compare notes.
