Front row seats at an autopsy

Donít you just hate it when someone picks on you just because youíre the smartest and that it cramps their style? They would think of you as a competition or a threat even though you donít intend to be. Conflicts often arise from this and these narcissistics:bugeyes: would sometimes resort to being a rat just to pull you down. In my case, I just let them be most of the time and tread carefully. But sometimes, I try to amuse myself by playing their game then putting one over them. I was a second... Read More →


Drool Nurse & the Lesson He learned

It was a usual week in the Cancer ward for a senior nursing student like me undergoing clinical rotations. It was still early in the curriculum year, so I still have the initial excitement and zeal:rolleyes: in me to do my duties as a health care provider. Not to brag, but I was often praised for being good at accomplishing my tasks:cool:. Iím just an average student when it comes to the theoretical part, but I rock in the actual clinical application. I prefer going to and fro rather than just... Read More →

First day training in the psych ward, I found myself in the institution’s lab in charge of receiving the specimens and recording them in a logbook. Yup…I got to be the lucky one to have the opportunity to appreciate first (sic)... Read More →


Misadventure in a Maternity Hospital

Warning: Contains events not suitable for those with a brainstem vomition center that’s easily excitable (whatever). Misadventure in a Maternity Hospital. There is probably no maternity hospital that is as busy as the one I went to during training. It’s jam-packed with patients and it’s like a newborn factory. Anybody who would want to have exposure to maternal and newborn care, this institution won’t disappoint you. It is a government owned charity maternity hospital with a 200+ bed... Read More →


Misadventures in Nursing

Warning: Contains events not suitable for those with a brainstem vomition center thatís easily excitable (whatever). :p Heh hehÖI never knew Iíd have the chance to share the funny experiences I had during my training days this way. I usually only have my family and friends to amuse. Now, I have a larger audience and possibly even get a prize to boot. The readers can thank me later (or give this article a high rating) for giving them the much needed dose of humor in... Read More →
