  1. I'm In Trouble B/c Of Borderline

    I had a very challenging weekend. As charge nurse of a very busy 20-bed facility, our doctor didn't do too well and admitted several psych patients with medical problems. All of ours are supposed to be "medically stable". One of these required ro...
  2. Starting work . . .

    Here I am, sitting at home since I found out that I passed the boards, just waiting to start work. When I was hired, the VP of nursing told me to call her when I passed the boards. I did. She said, "congrats" and that she'd have her secretary call...
  3. prone to nursing

    My family put the "fun" in dysFUNctional! Could that be the reason that I chose nursing as my profession and why I want to be a psych nurse:D
  4. Get to watch an autopsy!!!

    How exciting. When I was in A&P, we tried to talk our instructor into getting us in to see one. Unfortunately, we live in a small, rural area and there are none done locally. She had arranged for one of her classes to view one once and the med...
  5. Hey Lyndalous, how was NCLEX?

    So, what did you think? I stayed up til the wee hours this morning so I'll probably be going to bed early tonight. I was thinking about you around 2:00 today.
  6. Hey Kittykash

    Oh yea, I'm superstitious, too. I eat fish the night before a test because it is "brain food" and I drink Carnation Instant Breakfast the morning of an exam. I also wear my test-taking shirt, which I wore for every exam during school--it is a shirt...
  7. Hey Kittykash

    Hey right back at you. I guess you are still awake :) I am going to work 6 weeks of med/surg at a small 101 bed hospital in this rural area that I live in. Then, I'll transfer to their 20 bed co-ed psych unit and further train there. I was hopi...
  8. One more Question......

    Just in case your are an insomniac like me and happen to check this again tonight--I wanted to wish you luck on the NCLEX. I took mine on 6/1/01. It is hard, don't get me wrong. But it is passable. So far, our class has a 100% pass rate. And tha...
  9. Happy Birthday

    Happy 31st. Have a great one!
  10. Posting notes

    Several of us girls did the same thing--typing our notes after lecture. I started the whole thing--I was a medical transcriptionist during school. Anyway, I had my own transcription machine. I took pretty good notes during class but always missed ...
  11. Thanks, however the problem is....

    Some people can be real PIA's, if you know what I mean. She was just afraid that she might actually have to do some "work" to come up with that old syllabus! You'll do much better learning the 2nd time around--it's a proven fact. And you'll probab...
  12. Need Words of advice/encouragement

    First of all, congrats on returning to school to fulfill your dream of becoming an RN. I wish you the best of luck. We had to do skills check-offs during our first and second semesters. The first semester was the worst because I didn't know the in...
  13. Inspirational Songs for Pinning Ceremony

    "sung"--just doesn't sound right??? I'm terrific at medical terminology--now I'm stumped on this stupid word . . .
  14. Inspirational Songs for Pinning Ceremony

    Our class chose "Wind Beneath My Wings" and a classmate sung it beautifully. She dedicated it to our spouses and families and to our teachers. It was very touching, she had a great voice, and there wasn't a dry eye in our class.
  15. Okay does your family do this or is it just mine?

    Yes, but's it's my fault. When I stated A&P and learned about the entire body, I would tell my family fascinating facts about the body. I'm sure I griped their butts at times, but the human body is just amazing to me--I sort of felt like I was ...
