    Must we "pay our dues" by working night shift?

    Yeah and they said I would be doing nothing but mopping floors in the Navy. got out of that bunk is 2 weeks time and was working the flight deck. Chain of Command, baby, chain of command. I live the rule, "the squeaky wheel gets oiled first." all through life and it has work in every instance. You get what you settle for.

    Let me know if you figure that one out!? Youtube is always somewhat helpful, yet I don't even know where to begin...

    I just love that kind of teaching. At least God gave Moses 10 (ten) Commandments . I think he knew not everyone was going to read the entire bible. And what does "FOCUS" mean? Know? Skim? Digest?, Learn it for sure? I really don't care about the history. Not like you're going to be doing a diagnosis with a client/patient who is post op and say, "Hey did you know nurses used to be hookers!?" Like that is going to go over really well. Write up for sure!?! Right?

    Week 2, @, two, tu, to, too... Huh? Not sure where my head is? Stated nursing diagnosis and plans this week. Thought I had it down in the morning, after lunch, lost it. I think I need to rethink my eating habits and tweak them just a bit. The afternoon that I lost all of my brain matter I had a very light lunch. And when we hit lab and started working on Care plans my brain wasn't functioning and I was all over the place. Live an learn. Everything about school is a process. Family, life, eating, physiological, emotional, etc. Broke a crown on lab day and that threw me off. It is stuff like that that really distracts me. Studying at home the dogs bark and, bam! I start reading over and over and over. We have our first exam in a week. Haven't a clue, but I always tend to be like this till after the first exam. Then I have a general idea what the teachers are going to test on. Way too much little BS fluff in the way to study. And at times the message get convoluted with details that just don't matter, at least to me. "Battle Ax!" Really? But that is the one that will be on the test, right? Just kidding, but I think you get what I mean. Just too much data. Now the skills stuff is fun and I love that. Learning online is more precise in one regard, but, you don't know what the teachers are or aren't going to hit. UHG! Onward and up! To infinity and beyond!

    Yeah a GAZILLION pages per chapter...............! UHG, I loath reading, although this isn't horrible. Yet! Week two, another gazillion pages. It was funny to see not many folks knew about this site. I must be the smartest in the room. Or should I say, most resourceful? LOL Time to get my butt reading. Plug on!

    So it begins... Wow! Week 1 over and I am EXCITED to say the least, and yet there is a slight underlying fear. Fear may be too strong of a word, perhaps slight trepidation as to what I have embarked upon. With years under my belt, I have a lot to achieve and there are going to be some peaks and valleys. We appear to have a GREAT group of noobs with sparkling eyes and high aspirations and goals. Gives me hope for the future and I look forward to working and learning with them. Still, I worry about my not so strong areas. I hope I can find solace in a good team to work with and learn. Let's make this block a GREAT one!

    Negative Post on Facebook About New Nurses - I'm Fired Up!

    Just getting started... Let's for a moment think if we were in this veteran position. Having to deal with my father dying this past year from cancer. I, with my limited knowledge knew somethings that were going on. But I was always questioning. WE ONLY WANT the BEST for those WE LOVE! LOVE and FEAR will make people do nutty things at times.

    There plenty of online resources for practice of the hesi. Apps you can purchase etc. I had to take it twice. But the second time my scores went way up. Fear kept me from taking it 6 months later. Don't waste time. Just go for it. The faster you get it done the faster you get to put in your application Good luck!

    I Should Be in Jail

    Thank you for sharing your stories. They scare me. I don't like to see the innocent hurt, especially kids, and the stupidity that hurt them. And I don't like butt holes. I have no ideal how I will deal with this kind of crap. I hope God gives me the courage to ALWAYS do the right thing while helping others, even if it means dying inside. Thank you again for sharing your strength
