we have students this week. its the first time for me and i absolutely love them!

i find their enthusiasm so refreshing and contagious. kind of like a breath of fresh air from the constant bytching that i am guilty of too. helps give me a new perspective.

knowing what they have to do to prepare for clinicals, i find myself asking them questions ...lol

for example, one of the patients we shared was having a shunt put in. i never heard of this particular shunt so i asked the student...yeah that felt kind of weird but i take any and all opportunities to learn.

the only "problem" i have with them is that they dont understand that now means 20 minutes ago...lol

and thats only a "problem" for me because i like to let them do everything and handle everything ...thats how they learn...but when its OR or an OR-like procedure, i have to step in and take over. otherwise it just takes too long.

i dont mind the questions and i dont mind them following me. im going to do my damndest to make sure they have a positive experience when they are with me and that i treat them like the NURSES they are.

students are cool
