Hi, I'm a senior in high school and an aspiring "murse" lol. I currently have a part time job on the weekends as a ward clerk at a local nursing home. Since working here I have discovered a career I want and desire to be so bad. A nurse. The nurses here have taught me so much since they know I'm interested. When I'm not busy answering the call lights I read the LWW Nursing Drug Handbook
and just read and read about drugs. I joined allnurses and sit on here all the time reading all of these nurses stories about various subjects. I get to learn a lot about nursing up here. Faxing paperwork, calling hospitals, calling ambulance during emergencies/codes. I love and appreciate being able to be a ward clerk and gain this medical experience. I just want to know more about nursing, what things will help me be a successful nurse, advice, any kind of information about nursing. I got my CPR/ First Aid certification, I have my own stethoscope/pulse ox etc. I'm really excited about becoming a nurse. A penny for your thoughts!
