  1. Depressed about life choices

    Ok. I am going to briefly share my story with you. I went to college in 2001 and didn't like the subject I was taking. Not only did I have a lot of C's the first semester, I also had four F's the following semester due to not withdrawing properly. Wh...
  2. Hello to all. I start my program on the 27th and I was curious to know how is it going so far for those who have started before me?
  3. Any advice for a Pre nursing student :)

    READ THE BOOK!!!! I can't tell you how many students I saw that thought they could get past by just reading the power points and the notes. In my A&P 1 class I read the book and finished with an average of 99.7. In A&P 2 I was swamped with m...
  4. Did I help or hurt him???? :(

    To madsmom1.... it was very traumatizing. I think the worst part wasn't seeing him or all the mess but the utter despair and hopelessness and shock of his friends when he got shot. They were hysterical and in their minds that was it.... their friend ...
  5. Did I help or hurt him???? :(

    I just want to reassure you all that I absolutely assessed the scene first, not just rushed in naively. From what I saw, it was clear, and evidently I'm still here so I made the right choice. He was still breathing and I am so glad I did turn him on...
  6. Did I help or hurt him???? :(

    I definately made sure the scene was safe first by asking his friends if the gunman was gone. Once they assured me he was, I ran to help him. Unfortunately, he died this afternoon. But the quick response bought him enough time that his family could s...
  7. Did I help or hurt him???? :(

    Thank you all for you responses. It helped comfort me so much. I spoke to a friend and he said to me that thanks to a nurse, the boy is in the hospital in critical condition. He didn't know that person was me. I can't even believe he made it that far...
  8. Did I help or hurt him???? :(

    I am a c.n.a/ starting nursing student and I got my first taste of some critical care tonight. Long story short a young boy got shot on my block and I ran to the scene to help him(couldn't help it, I was the only one). Gunshot wound to the head and ...
  9. I am a CNA in a nursing home working the 3rd shift. We have one resident who rings the bell at 2 in the morning asking for hot water for tea. She is alert. But on psych meds and has a unsteady gait. She is about 85. I have heard from some of the nurs...
  10. To make a long story short, I will be in school a year longer than expected for pre reqs due to a setback in my GPA from 10 years ago. I have decided to take additional courses that apply to the P.A program as well as my R.N pre reqs then when the ti...
  11. Prenursing while a CNA

    Yes you can do it. I'm a CNA and I have 4.0 so far. Any job you get can interfere with school if you let it. The good thing about being a CNA is that I get to work overnight shifts on the weekends so it doesn't clash with my classes. And there is eno...
  12. Never thought I'd have this problem: which job to choose?

    Well... you said your heart is in NICU. I would just say to follow your heart. What an awesome opportunity to be presented with both options. Weigh them both out carefully (ex.pros and cons list) and pick the one that suits and fits your lifestyle be...
  13. Funniest/strangest dementia patient stories

    Once.. I gave a resident her healthshake. She lookd at the box and it said "shake well". She looked at it curiously and said to me,"well it must not be working. Its not shaking at all." Had another resident who claimed their was a young white boy in ...
  14. Tired of Pre-Reqs

    Omg I feel the same way. Tired of having to write essay, research assignments. And math takes the cake for me. I put off statitics till next semester.I watch other students not working as hard all around me. They are fine with a B or C. I envy them a...
  15. Funny Nursing Dreams

    Ok this one is very perverted. We have a resident with HIV at our nursing home who is very bothersome often. I dreamt that I was working and he kept following me around bothering me. So I annoyingly asked him what did he want and he gestured that he ...
