I think that CMAs should be phased out, or never should have existed in the first place. I believe that only a licensed nurse should pass meds.
As an RN, I hate being responsible for unlicensed persons' actions. The people who thought up CMAs should have to be responsible for them.
Congrats to both of you! I can't apply until after May when I finish the last of my prereqs. (That's being determined to make an A in my A and P class in the spring.) lol
Congrats to everyone! (I hope it rubs off on me throughout my classes the next couple of years!!!):chuckle
I was pretty much a B student as well, and now I am retaking my prereqs to get A's. I think age and just the extreme will to do it will get you through. From what I have read on this website, even if classes don't turn out the way you want the first time, DON'T GIVE UP!!!
MANNA .... your post is an outstanding ray of hope for us all! Thanks for your reply!
So far so good, my husbad thinks I'm crazy for taking this fast-track, but I didn't want to take it the same time as A and P.
Within 1 week, I made A+ on my narrative and A+ on my descripitive writing. :hatparty:
This week I turned in my process paper, and took my midterm which was an inclass writing assignment. I don't have the grades for those yet, and I won't know until at least Jan. 4th when I go back to class.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone, and enjoy your break!!!!
Congratulations! I know when I bought my first steth. in CMA school I was so excited...so excited, I bought two w/i 9 months lol
I can't wait to go look and buy my stethoscope, suture scissors, etc, etc, etc for nursing school!! (Some of us get excited easily )
Congrats, and good luck!
My fall sem. class, Pyschology, started Nov. 1st. (open enrollment class) Although I finished it in 1 month, the grade will not be posted until February....grrrrr
Although I know I made an A, I keep looking at my grades online just to see if maybe it was posted already. ...something about seeing that A on the official grade list I guess :chuckle
Although I do not believe the Dr. should have yelled at the RN, I agree this is not a reason to have him paged. HOWEVER...this person is only a student, and good thing. This is a good thing to learn as a student, not after finishing. Students must realize that we WILL have to deal with yelling Dr.s, family members, and at times, other coworkers. (sad but true)
All I can say is take this as a lesson learned, and never do it! Don't let anyone take you away from your dream of becoming an RN, not even a Dr. who was probably just upset because he was busy and got interupted for a frivolous reason. Tomorrow's another day, don't hold a grudge, and just make sure you are the best nurse you can be!
There is nothing wrong with male nurses, as there is nothing wrong with female Dr.'s. I'm sure the whole stigma thing comes from when women couldn't go to college, and only worked to aid the Dr.
We are, or should be, way past that era!
I guess, eventually, someone with a problem with it will come up with a "politically correct" name to suit both genders as with the stewardess to flight attendant name change! :chuckle
You mentioned A and P notes I bought of Ebay, A and P Cliff notes, what are those? :imbar
Of course these notes should not replace actual notetaking, but I thought they were very interesting. The CD even has digital pics of a disected cat from the seller's lab class.
The seller's ID is jasoncshay, and there is a current auction for one of his CD's located at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...ssPageName=WDVW. If you want to search other notes, I put in anatomy notes in the search box.
This may or may not be helpful in your class, it all depends on the instructor, and your mode of learning. I'm glad I bought it though, the notes were clear, and the pics were very helpful to me.
I did a search for A & P notes on ebay, but came up with nothing. Was these notes very helpful for you.
To study I have: an A and P coloring book, flash cards, study guide, A and P notes I bought of Ebay, A and P Cliff notes, A and P Made Easy, several bookmarked AandP websites, and the website for the A and P book itself.
I have been looking at a variety of tissue pics hoping this will help me get a better understanding of what I will be looking for for each tissue. (...compact bone is easy b/c it looks like a tree cut in half with the rings showing.) I also printed pics out from the A and P book's website and made flashcards for the tissues. I may even draw out exactly what I see in the microscope, and make flashcards from that too.
I plan on recording all the lectures, and labs if possible with my microcassette recorder, and I plan on taking digitals of everything, if the instructor approves. This way I can study exactly what I will be looking at during lab tests.
Hope this helps, and GOOD LUCK!!!
WOW! This class still has 5 major papers due, in-class assignments, and reading assignments. All this in a total of 3 weeks.... again I say WOW! :uhoh21:
