New Nebraska Nurses

  1. Don't know if I'm supposed to identify nurses by region, but I had a great experience with some student nurses in Omaha the other day. I'm an agency nurse, and went to a complex pulmonary unit to work the other day. There was another RN and a CNA, BOTH ALSO AGENCY!!! Needless to say, the night nurse had left everything a mess, none of us were familiar with the patients or the unit workings, plus we had student LPN's. It was their last day of clinical and they were taking their finals the next day, which was the last day of school. Now the day could have been a disaster, with 2 discharges and a patient leaving AMA, but let me tell you: WE ROCKED!!!! Being an Agency nurse throws you into all kinds of messed-up situations, and you learn to laugh it off and quote Echo Heron: "Florence doesn't live here anymore." But the main point I wanted to make is that the fresh soon-to-be LPN's I worked with impressed me so much with their skills and intelligent questions that I had to dedicate a world-wide thread to them. Like I said, the day had the high potential for being a disaster, but we grabbed the moment and made a difference. Hope I have the opportunity to work with some of them after boards. Thanks, you guys, if you're reading this.

    I did all my prereqs at Metro CC -- they have OUTSTANDING teachers over there...at least in the BIO department. I'll look forward to seeing some of these grads out and about.

    I'm a Creighton Bluejay now... a NU Cornhusker for my first degree.
