Christy1019 has 11 years experience as a ASN, RN and specializes in Emergency/Trauma/Critical Care Nursing.

My parents always say that they knew early on that I would one day become a nurse, and I cannot remember ever wanting to do anything else. I am passionate about & addicted to learning anything medical/nursing related, and I am so proud to be able to call myself a R.N.

    Best hospitals in the Detroit area

    I have worked for both Henry Ford hospital in Detroit and one of the suburban Beaumont hospitals. I much preferred the Henry Ford system over Beaumont, however the current Beaumont hospital is much closer to home. Welcome to Michigan!

    Sen. Maureen Walsh Response to Backlash

    The thing that is so great about us nurses is that regardless of whatever ignorant comment she or anyone else may make, we will still take great care of them. She can hate on us all she wants, but I know what kind of nurse I am and will not let her ...

    The Mayo Clinic Netflix Documentary

    I did enjoy the documentary and the history of the Mayo clinic, but I agree, it did feel more like a promotional video for them.
  9. I'm confused... were you all practicing catheter insertions on fellow students? lol There would've been no way they would've talked me into that one!

    I think they are referring to the way that it is spelled "M'K'N'Z'Y" and not the name.

    A good bet would be to get a bachelors degree in something like biology prior to going into medical school. I am not sure why you are going for an additional degree in ultrasound sonography if you are currently in nursing school, as a means to get i...

    Where Were You...9/11

    I was in my senior year of high school, first-aid class when the teacher turned on the TV and was explaining what had happened. I have to admit that I didn't know what the WTCs were or their significance, and also believed it to be an accidental cra...
  13. That is hilarious!
  14. My first one (not medical related) was when I was much younger, and a waitress at a Coney Island restaurant. We had a ton of regulars and it was very common for them to come in at lunch and order a couple Coney dogs and a Coke. I had one male custo...
