    In the dream all the rooms had toilets instead of patients...
  2. I wish I knew in the beginning that studying the night before doesn't mean it'll be retained for the exams. That most study groups ended up being social gatherings and unproductive. That lateral violence starts in nursing school and should not be t...
  3. People sure do have some nasty opinions about nursing

    I was just thinking this very same thought the other day. Friends that I could talk to about anything two years ago are suddenly speaking another language....or is it me. I've gotten some negative comments but its "crabs in a barrel" more than direc...
  4. What do you so to relax from nursing school?

    At first it was some wine and TV on the weekends...as the intensity grew so did my need for escape. I worked out more (every day after class); baked cookies, cakes, etc.; played computer and video games, read fiction novels, took a bubble bath, compl...
  5. When I hear people say things like this it makes me wonder what else is going on. Nursing school is not the reason to break off a relationship and sometimes the struggle through the program can make bonds stronger. I know a few people in my class tha...
  6. Storage clipboard with built in calculator?

    I used a storage clipboard all through clinical and preceptorship and I really liked having everything in one place when I needed it. Always have extra sheets on hand just in case (water/coffee spill, etc.). Carry a "brain" of some sort...most nurses...
  7. Underwater

    Thank God you were there to save the boys life I used to lifeguard for many years at an indoor/outdoor pool with a water slide. The outdoor pool was 3 feet deep so most parents liked to have their little ones in that one verses the bigger pool indoo...
  8. Is nursing school supposed to be harder?

    Take a look at the statistics of your school, retention rate, placement rates, NCLEX passing, etc. If they can't provide you with this information then administration doesn't care about the results of its school. I'm sure you're just an exceptionally...
  9. Poop in nursing

    Maybe I'm the naive one but I went into nursing knowing that I'll be dealing with bodily fluids on a regular basis. Human beings eat, sleep and :poop:. Our first rotation was in a LTC facility and I am so thankful that I learned the fundamentals of s...

    Well it all started when I visited this Shaman.....good news is that my migraine is gone.

  12. This is going to sound so cliche but honestly it's true that the more you experience, the less squeamish you'll get. I used to work at a pool so I knew that poop and vomit doesn't bother me (unless it got on me but that's a different story). First ti...
  13. I expected nursing school to be hard because that is what everyone told me. Hard is such a vague word that doesn't describe any elements of nursing school. It is not like any other program that is out there and that is what surprised me the most. Eve...
  14. Thinking about minoring in biology...

    My first degree is in biology. The only help towards nursing it gave me was a couple of basic pre-reqs that all Bachelor degrees require....I wouldn't waste the time or the money to attach it as a minor. It might be helpful to take an extra communica...
  15. This is my worst nightmare. I'm so afraid of missing clinical or being late that I can't sleep the night before and have to "self medicate" for any chance of sleep more than 2 hours. Thanks for the story...especially the part where you go to the wron...
