remember you asked:
monday/wednesday class from 9-12, 45 minute drive to hospital, preplanning 1-2 hours depending on patient. home, haven't eaten, start supper and begin to work on care plan, make sure uniform is clean, wrinkle free, and shoes are white and polished.
tuesday/thursday 4-4:30 am wakeup, at clinical by 6:45 until 4 sometimes later. home, maybe eat complete paperwork from info obtained at clinical to turn in next day. collapse into bed.
friday: class from 9-12, try to run some errands, buy some groceries, get laundry started.
saturday: fill automatic feeders and waterers for dogs and cats, change out automatic cartridge for litter pan. change sheets if not done on friday. more laundry. study, read for next weeks lectures.
sunday: finish laundry, put away unless test on monday. read and study for next weeks lectures/tests. do some cooking (usually two kinds of pasta salad, one pot roast, mac and cheese, and spaghetti/layered mexican casserole, throw a london broil or some cheap steaks in marinade to grill tuesday or wednesday night. put the cooked food in individual containers for lunches or meals. if lucky find 30 minutes to spend some "quality time" with the husband. if really lucky, find time to look at the sunday paper.
(admittedly this was the worse rotation, most in depth body systems to learn, and most of my patients had upwards of 20-30 drugs to look up for each clinical, and each had several comorbidities)
