    I did a refresher course through South Dakota State University. The theory portion was online, at your own pace. The clinical portion was at a hospital about an hour and a half away, but I was lucky they already had a contract with SDSU, since I am in NY. Apparently, a lot of hospitals across the country have contracts with them. The class required 80 clinical hours. You have a year to complete both the theory and clinical work.

    I thought the class was very helpful. I had not done bedside nursing in about 10 years, so I needed to brush up and gain a little confidence back. I was also finding that every job I applied for required a refresher, since it had been so long for me. I would recommend it! Just check with SDSU first, to be sure there is a facility nearby that will allow you to do your clinicals there.

    I had an 11th grader come to me with a headache. He said there was mayo on his chicken sandwich at lunch. He does not like mayo, and was so annoyed, that he got a headache... *sigh*

    Today a teacher asked if he could be a nurse. I said sure and he replied that he "knows how to put on bandaids".

    .... Um, yeah. Cuz that's all I do. Thanks for making me feel significant, buddy.
    What a jerky thing to say to you!!

    Recurring random thought: I so appreciate staff informing me, "you have a customer." Or, "there's someone in your clinic." If not for being told, I could easily not ever be aware they were there; just not be able to see them present in my clinic with out someone telling me they were there.

    That drives me nuts, too! "You have a customer!" gets old really fast...

    Random thought of the morning:

    On my log sheet, I actually wrote down, "Invisible cut to finger. Washed hands." Sometimes I act like a jerk...

    I'm going to need one of those shirts, too! LOL

    And on the back of my shirt it will read: "Did you eat breakfast this morning? Do you need to use the bathroom?" For all of those tummy aches...

    I still have to pick up a few shifts at Urgent Care over the summer but mostly it's spent on the beach. We move our RRRRRRRVEEE to a RV park right across the dunes from the beach from June 1 to August 31. Spend the days and nights, cruising the beach on our golf cart, sunnin, kids surfing and skim boarding, fishing, beachcombing, boiling pots, grillin, throw in a few bud lights and general relaxation - bam!! The only negative part is leaving.

    Recently had a parent bring a student in first thing in the morning. Student attends school in my district, but doesn't even attend my school! Kid has a banged up hand from an injury at home that morning. Hand is swollen and bruised. Almost no ROM. Parent asks me, "Should I take her to urgent care?" Gee, ya think?

    I thought I was the only one that used the "Monday Morning Urgent Care" line! At least I'm not alone. Lol
