    I am afraid he will never really understand or never know how much I do need him or how hard I really do work.

    I am just getting to this stage... first semester student here and I am getting really frustrated with the fact that no one seems to understand how much work I am really putting in. How every waking moment I am doing something related to school or work. I haven't had a day off in over a month between work and school, I do my clinical paperwork pretty much as soon as I get done with clinical so it is one long day from 6 am to 10pm trying to get it all done and to study, I pretty much study whenever I am not helping a customer, eating, sleeping, in class or cleaning. My husband is still not what I would call really "stepping up" and keeps making dumb comments about I can do this when I have free time and do that like clean up dog poop... well I never have free time, so I guess it will never get done. Plus the most irritating think is when he says... you're always tired... well gee of course I am, you would be too if you worked a month straight... argh sorry this is just a vent but does it ever get better?

    So I am trying to come up with two priority nursing diagnosis' for diverticulitis. My patient was admitted 5 days after back surgery for fusion of her lower lumbar disks so she has and incision on abdomen and one on her lower back as a result. The incisions are clean and dry but slightly reddenned. She developed lower left quadrant pain, had a low grade fever, nausea and vomiting and a few occasions of rectal bleeding. She had a CT scan showing fluid in the pelvic cavity. She had an increase WBC count and decreased H&H, and decreased NA+ and Cl-. So here is my question, I am trying to figure out nursing diagnosis for her and I thought that Impaired Tissue Integrity because of the diverticulitis which is leaking into her abdomen which could lead to further infection, however my professor said that wasn't the primary the primary would be Impaired Skin Integrity because of her incisions.... I am so lost right now, can anyone tell me how this conclusion was come to or help lead me to understanding it. I am confused because she wasn't admitted to the hospital and there really is nothing related to the incisions that I am seeing would help her with her problems that she is in the hospital for which is her diverticulitis. Sorry if this sounds jumbled I am just so confused right now.

    Doesn't seem like too much at all to me but I have to agree as well about AP online and I love online classes. There is just some things I think you would miss by doing classes like this online. I am wondering what Micro was like online cuz in our lab we did a lot of cultures and tests that you just can't do online... I know my nursing school requires lab so these classes aren't even offered through our college online.

    I personally thought nutrition was easy along with sociology. They were both classes that required little to no effort on my part other than showing up. I don't think you will feel loaded down. The worst part of my nutrition class was there was a physical activity schedule that we had to come up with an exercise program and then do it, so that was what required more work, other than that no biggie.

    I am worried about this too, I am wondering where I am going to find the time to get in a good workout. We haven't gotten a for sure schedule yet, but I am looking at either 6 days a week at best and 7 days a week at worst as far as switching between work and school. My major benifit is I have a job that I can easily get some study time in. Good luck to you though

    At our school a dilute test is grounds for a retest and if it is dilute again its and automatic disqualification...

    I think it is very normal. I recently was accepted after a very long wait on a waitlist. While I was waiting I didn't obsess so much about it, but now that it is right here basically I am trying to read every possible thing I can just to absorb as much as possible. I didn't really ever think that I wouldn't get in to a school but I do stress about how long I have been working at my current job and when I would be able to not be so miserable working and I also stressed about at what point in my life I was going to actually start my career. That started after my 25th birthday... Good luck getting is somewhere soon, you will eventually though!
