One Week Down

02 September 2012

I made it through my first week run of my second term in practical nursing. Believe it or not... I am still alive and breathing. We had a huge increase in admissions this year though and it has been like hanging out at a circus for a week. We took a trip to our master campus and got to play in the simulation lab. They have manikins that I have never seen before. They are $60,000 fake humans. They breath, talk, have heart beats, bowel sounds... I can give them an IV! They can even go into respiratory arrest and I have to do CPR to revive them! These things are just about the coolest thing I have ever seen.

So there were a lot of great points in the week, but as I mentioned we had a big jump in admissions. We have a class of 40 crammed into a small classroom and let me tell you, it is going to shrink a lot, a lot, a lot. We have a mix of ages from 18 to 50. Quite a difference there. You know who drives me the craziest though? The 18 year old girls that have no clue how the world works. They have absolutely no common sense. Don't get me wrong, they are smart girls. They are about the dumbest smart people I know. I am going to have to learn to have patience because they are already getting on my nerves.

Other than that, it has been a good week. I have loads of homework, nursing interventions to write, and studying to do though. I hope everyone had a great week!
