Let me just say that in light of everything that has happened and is happening in this country, nursing school suddenly seems terribly insignificant. However, I keep thinking that if ever this happens again, and unfortunately there will always be horrific situations everywhere, maybe as a nurse I will be of assistance to someone.
I can't even begin to say how affected I am. I know I'm not the only one who cries every time he or she listens to the news.
Anyway, in the interest of pressing on and not making this too lengthy, I just wanted to say I passed my first lab exam
We just started the nursing curriculum, and this lab was:
Making an occupied bed
We each got checked off for all skills individually.... talk about anxiety. Who knew they could turn such basic stuff into checklists a mile long?
So I'm celebrating with one beer before bed and then tomorrow (my day off from work and school!), I'm meeting one of my study partners at the lab so we can practice for next Monday's check off... that's ambulation/assisted devices/patient transfers.
Hope everyone is doing well. We have our first lecture test on Monday as well.
Take care and stay safe.
