22 months and counting!...

  1. Hi there! Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Keri and I attend CCRI in Rhode Island. I just started my clinicals in September and my graduation date is 2008(god willing). I work at a nursing home as a med tech, which is great experience for me as I get to know so much about medication classifications. The nurses I work with are great too! They are so willing to demonstrate a variety of nursing skills and also let me pratice under direct supervision. I actually need some advice. We are starting the unit about fluids and electrolytes, and I am pretty overwhelmed. I did a tutorial online but I was hoping some of you may have some advice regarding online tutorials, ect..... to make this stuff sink in better! Take care!

    Tired and Cranky,

    Keri
