Wednesday was a pretty fun lecture class day. We all had to bring in oranges to practice giving injections on. We practiced cleaning off the vial top, measuring the amount of med we needed in the syringe, injecting the air into the vial, then turing the vial over to fill the syringe with the med, recap the needle using the scoop method, cleaning our orange with an alcohol wipe, removing the cap, and then darting into our oranges. I thought it was a pretty cool lab session. I injected my poor orange with so many meds that you couldn't squeeze it anymore! It was a hard, round ball:lol2:
I only have two days of class next week. Clinical on Monday and lecture class on Tuesday. I only have eight more clinical days left of this level. Although I like being in a nursing home, I can't wait until level 2 when we are going to an acute care facility.
No tests next week. Yeah! However, I have to turn in my careplan and drug cards on Monday.
Well, I'll keep you all posted as to how next week transires. Please keep us all posted as to how all of your programs are going. I'm sure our experiences are helping to alleviate some of the anxiety for future LPN students.
