I am 25 yrs old and in my first semester in nursing school. This is my second career(Economics/Business Mngt) background. I would say there is about 30 dudes out of approx. 200 people in my program now but my program is so competitive that usually only about 1/5 of the students usually graduate. Wish me luck.

Med Surg was a blast, but a little messy, haha. I did my rotation at a VA Hospital and it was really enjoyable. I worked with a bunch of WWII and Vietnam Vets...awesome

I know how you feel!. But I want to tell you you are not the only one, so don't worry.For example there are 4 male SN in my program and there are four clinical sites. each clinical grp has one M nrsng Student. It can be intimidating at times but I am doing alright so stick to the fight bro.
Oct 2, '08Hey Guys
I have a question regarding Priming an Iv tubing and the process of hanging the primary and secondary bag. I mean My instructor thinks I am genius in maths because i give the flow rate for gtt/min or ml/hr conversion right away without having to calculate using paper and pencil or calculator.However, she is always upset with me and i am :imbar because I always mess it up with the process that involves gathering equipment, verifying IV order or physicians orders using the six rights and 3 checks ... of hanging the primary or the secondary bag. So please advise me if there is a web site that has a video clip that shows how to start and end this process or write me a step by step process, Thank you.
