No one to talk to about nursing... Am I crazy?

  1. Guys.. I'm 9 months in my nursing career and I get very nostalgic about talking about nursing. Am I just a big nerd? There's not a lot of pod casts out there about nursing, and haven't tried any of the books out there.
    Did anyone find themselves just missing the talks about different nursing skills and science stuff we use to talk about in school?

    No. Mostly because the talks we had in class seemed so far removed from reality once I started working...

    Looking at your other posts, it makes perfect sense that you'd miss school. Seems like you've a had a rough transition into the "real" world.

    True...plus the mindless/endless projects that had nothing to do with nursing instruction. I hated nursing school and there isn't one thing about it I miss.

    Is there any way to "un-roughen" or does this just come in time?

    hahaha.. I did once try to discuss rhe Krebs cycle. Not a hit with light convo topic in the break room. :P ... i wonder if i had crazy eyes while I was talking about it and didnt realize

    I think when we see connections between the Krebs cycle and our practice, these are special moments that we keep to ourselves because no one else earned this special moment

    Hahaha I actually explained somethinh to a new staff recently and related it to the Krebs cycle. They looked at me like I was cray, but I was fresh off a pathophysiology post grad course.

    You want schmience?? Here you go:

    Among nurses in their first year of practice, does exposure to a Brief (15-minute) Session of Therapeutic Disagreement on an Internet Message Board (B15STD-IMB) decrease feelings of nursing school nostalgia compared to no exposure to therapeutic disagreement?

    Dx: Altered individual coping related to situational stressors as evidenced by trying to talk about the Krebs cycle while people are on break.



    Juuuust kidding!!

    Any particular topics you want to talk about?

    Okay, I'm going to get real here for a moment. I went through some of my journals that I kept during the RN program and found an entry which exemplified my feelings toward having to learn this information.

    I remember doing this entry while studying during breakfast, sitting at my kitchen table before leaving to go to clinicals sometime in, what I believe was, the spring of 1989:
