A prayer for all my fellow students that are taking their return demo exam today, and next Thursday:
today i will take my examination
which is so important to me
though i am nervous.im not afraid
because i know that as i write my answers
it is your hands that work
and now,as i take this examination
please enlighten my mind
to able to answer correctly
and to recall everything that i have studied.
i will do my best in this exam and to you god
i will entrust my fate
i know that whatever will be the result,
it is according to your will.
you have watched me
as i worked hard to study for this exam
although i dont feel very confident
and that i dont know if i am prepared
i truly believe that you would give me what i deserve
i deserve to pass this exam,god.
i am happy that today you are with me
for with you i will win this battle
and as i close my eyes and feel your presence
in this examination room
you put confidence to my heart
Just to let you know, that new charge nurse insists we take ALL temps rectally.
My 2 cents: Many nurses WANT to retire, absolutely! They saved all thier lives and were expecting to live off the interest on thier savings. Then the Housing crisis (among other variables) in 2008 forced the Federal Reserve to lower the interest rates even lower than they were in 2001 after 9/11. So, interest rates tumbled from 7%, to 5, to 4, to 3, to 2%, to, well, look at the websites of your banks and tell me what they are now. My bank is BofA, and right now they offer anywhere from .01% to .2%. Can someone live off that? Well, with the current rate of inflation, absolutely NOT! So they keep working, and working, and working....
I think that is the most pertinent factor driving the current nursing employment situation. I predict when interest rates rise, to about 5%'ish, there will be a CRITICAL shortage as many nurses will finally be able to retire. So there is hope. This is good news for students that will graduate in 14' or 15', but very frustrating news for recent grads. However, I have 3 friends, 2 in NY and 1 in FL, that graduated last year, and ALL are working. And making a very decent salary. So keep positive, then all things will become positive
Just to remind everyone, next Tuesday, March 12, starting at 9am, is the math refresher in the Central lab. The details should have been emailed to your Broward email account. I for one, am looking forward to the free continental breakfast spread that Broward College will provide. I heard everything from eggs, bagels, hash browns, pancakes, french toast, coffee and tea will be available. Also, I was told that there will be an omelette station set up this year for make your own omelettes! Gotta love that!
This is what I did on the first 2 days of spring break:
Monday, got up early, ate a bowl of cereal, went back to bed, awoke at 11a, filled up my bicycle tires with air, lubed the chain, and went back to bed. Woke at 1pm, ate lunch, went for a 2 hour ride, came home, went to bed. Woke up to cook, then clean my room, but realized that could wait until another time, it's all about meeeeee this week. Tues, same as monday but no the bike ride, however, I may go for a run tonight. Then it's off to Seminole Coconut Creek with a $25 budget. Last time $5 got me a kings ransom of $275 And the stars are aligned in my favor tonight. Tomorow, its sleep all day AND definetely clean my room! No, really, I'm going to clean my room. No, serious, I WILL CLEAN MY ROOM!! I am goinna dust, vaccuum, clean the sheets. Maybe not, I dont see why that cant wait until Thursday.
Yowsers! That was freaking hard-a-roni!
Unlike anything I ever did.
Now the waiting. And waiting, and waiting.
I truly did the best I could, worked as hard and as long as I could.
Very humbling experience this is, FO SHO' !!!
I had a great process and clinical prof., I was provided with the proper (IMHO) tools to succeed and leaned HEAVILY on my faith when at the point it seemed just too, too much. Hopefully, it was all enough to make it to Process/Clinical II.
I hope the BEST for all y'all!
I sincerely mean that!
I'm praying for all of us.....Keep yer chins up soldiers
Good luck on your final exam today Ya'll! YOU GOT THIS
Wow! I am so happy for you. All that hard work paid off. Your family must be soooo proud of you! ConGrads
You worked sooooooooo hard in nursing school to do what truly makes you happy and fulfilled. And you seem to have passion from what you have written. You are so lucky! And to think of the positive influence you will make upon those impressionable minds! How awesome! Good on you! You make Nightingale, Maslow AND Erikson proud (and me too )
"Fairbanks can easily get -60 below during the winter"
Just scratched Fairbanks off my list of places to work after School. I'm a skier and rock climber, and even -30 is beyond brutal and tolerable. But -60? They couldnt pay me enough! Anyone working there should get AT LEAST $100/hr!!!!!
SOOOoooooooo much WORK!!!!!!!! At the periphery of impossible. But possible. Who woulda thunk it? Keep your chin up soldiers. Keep your eye on the prize: State license with YOUR name printed on it! I am tough, but on that day I WILL CRY like a baby....
WOW! It's soooo quite in here since classes started. Hmmmm, could it be everyones studying? Organizing themselves? Practing clinicals? So much to do, so little time....
Howdy Ya'll ! Good luck in this journey called nursing and have a wonderfull, safe and relaxing holiday. My question is, does anyone know which hospitals Central students will do clinicals in? Thanks so much and best of luck to all of you...
But the RN who taught the class was a student as well.
