    I guess this is the part where i have to migrate over to the Nursing Forum, rather than the Nursing student forum.. bc i have graduated, passed NCLEX & start orientation on the 16th.

    be gentle & please dont eat me...im not that tasty LOL

    Welcome pneumo. Interesting user name, care to share why you chose that? Orienting where?

    Congratulations ! I would love to follow your journey into nursing. I wish you the best of luck. Personally, I am not a muncher. I try to mentor and support my colleagues.

    Pneumothorax- ive always been intrigued by the respiratory system and when i heard or "didnt" hear a pneumo for the first time i was like ***********. and its goofy. LOL..

    ill be orienting on a cardiac/cvicu unit

    i plan on being a preceptor once i get my bearings down as an RN, so i hope that i dont become a crabby ratchet and eat my young either LOL

    I have a good pneumo story! I got out of a long.. drawn out morning report.
    I assessed my patient a few minutes after her attending had rounded.

    The doc was one of the few I trusted in the facility. She had charted lung sounds clear, yada yada.
    I was wondering to myself , why was I even bothering to listen to my patients breath sounds, 5 minutes after the attending had rounded?

    The patient was not symptomatic.. however, I could NOT hear any air movement in the right lung fields.
    I notified the physician of my findings.. she had no problem with my assessment and ordered a STAT chest xray.

    I spent the rest of my morning getting a chest tube inserted.
