Jacob080110 specializes in Oncology.

I am a very new nurse and enjoy truly caring for each and every single one of my patients. I feel that, as a nurse, it is my duty to treat every patient, (that I am lucky enough to care for), with respect. I want every patient I come into contact with to feel special (because they are) and I refuse to give any patient less than optimal care. I am very lucky to be in the position, as a nurse, to help people retain some feelings of dignity when they are at their worst. I am lucky to be intelligent enough to understand that my job is to treat my patients, and their pain, not judge them as "worthy" or "unworthy" of physical, mental, or emotional relief. I hope to always remember that all patients are worthy of simple human compassion.

  3. sitting with drug seekers.

  4. Why???? Are?? They?? Failing???

    My highest level of education, before college, (and besides a GED I earned on a whim at age 14), was the third grade. I NEVER once struggled with any type of class or came anywhere close to a C throughout my entire college career. I am one of the lea...
  5. Why???? Are?? They?? Failing???

    Out of the 36 students that began the nursing program, at the school I attended, when I did, only 6 of us graduated (on time). Our school had an NCLEX pass rate above the national average but this is only because they did not allow anyone to make it ...

    This is how I feel all nurses should aim to handle this kind of situation, but I am a new nurse, so what do I know?
  7. sitting with drug seekers.

    I am a practicing licensed RN now. I guess I did not fix the profile properly. I will work on that now, thank you for pointing out issue. I am also a female and had trouble turning my little picture into a female.

    I do not understand how it is so difficult for some nurses to give the q4 dilaudid right on the dot, it is their freaking job! I do understand that every now and again emergencies happen and a nurse may not be able to get to it right away but if this...
  11. Thinking of dropping Nursing school and doing Pre-Med

    You're right, the MCAT will still need to be taken, and I was wrong about needing a four year degree to be accepted. They prefer 4 year degrees but will take students with 3 years of college coursework. College of Medicine | Admission Procedures

    I think the Medical University of South Carolina will accept a BSN with no other pre-reqs, meaning you can finish your BSN and apply for acceptance to that med school. You should check it out.
