    Local story: Two dead children

    Oh my god. Just read an article on the condition of the 9 year old girl. Unbelievable.

    If Only We Had Personal Assistants

    Last night I was drowning in a sea of self-pity (yes, it was a pathetic moment), because of how hard nursing school is. But then I thought, ya know, I don't think it would be that bad if I didn't have all those other life-things to do. Grocery shopping? Oil changes? Come on universe, I'm trying to write a care plan. Back off. I think a personal assistant would solve all my problems. And yes, this is a rather pointless thread (thus I put it in the Breakroom like a good girl). But I needed a break from studying electrolytes.

    Signing up for nursing without researching

    I dislike it because of how unprofessional it seems. It's like some of these people spun a bottle and it landed on nursing. It's a profession. For the love of all that is good, please take it just a little bit more seriously.

    Officer yanks student from classroom

    Oh I'm late! My view is that no one can truly know if what happened was acceptable or not, and that's because the media plays us. You've got one news station standing by the officer, one news station probably contemplating sending him off to his own far-away island, and somewhere in between is what really happened and why it happened that way.

    10/17 What I Learned This Week

    I did see OC's thread and sent her a PM about it all. :(

    10/17 What I Learned This Week

    I miss you too! I am having a love/hate relationship with school right now. I love being in the actual school setting. I love being able to come home and say, "Hey, I learned something neato today." But I also constantly feel like there's still so so much that I don't know. For everything I learn, I discover 5 more things that I need to learn. I'm jealous of the seasoned nurses here who seem to have a Mary Poppins purse stuffed with knowledge. I can't wait to be that person. Hope all is going well with you! What have I missed?

    10/17 What I Learned This Week

    I've been missing out. I usually limit myself to getting on AN on the weekends, and this thread is by far my favorite one. I just found out today that it was put on the blue side! My silly, overloaded brain didn't even think to look on the blue side.

    I learned that I was right when I said that AcuteHD would be back.

    I heard this and I refuse to believe this. Our cats totally love us.

    9/19 What I learned this week.....

    I learned that when taking a BP, the diastolic is usually the fifth sound; this makes life so much easier for me, because I always think I hear a few more after the diastolic. You wouldn't think taking a BP would be that hard, but I'm having a difficult time with it. Practice practice practice. I learned that, since school has started, I only average 3000-4000 steps a day :down: No wonder students gain weight! I'm going to try to add in a 1.5-4 mile walk daily (length of walk depending on workload).

    Yes! And vanilla ice cream.

    Well in that case I'm going to need a piece of cherry pie too.

    I've got a nice Merlot to my right and beefaroni to the left. Don't judge the beefaroni.

    It's late and I'm tired. It took me a moment to figure out that the post you quoted was deleted. I just thought, "Wow, OC has lost her last marble. She needs her old avatar."

    Yeah, one of the many reasons I only use the app on awkward elevator rides.

    We should. The Dogen stamp of approval is gold.

    Dogen has spoken.

    Ugh. People. Why are there so many stupid ones?

    9/12 What I learned this week......

    I am learning how to organize my schedule. I honestly think I'm going to take one full day (or almost full day) where I don't touch my books, which feels weird. I have tried and tried to study information today, but nothing is sticking.

    I must have missed it. Is it people still insisting on being preachy about the recent tragedy?
  24. Purple_roses

    9/12 What I learned this week......

    Me too. I took a practice quiz a few minutes ago and missed eleventy-seven questions. My brain has closed for the night.

    No, that was a necessary reply, and I think the mods would agree. I would bet you my life's income that the poster you were responding to is NOT a nurse. Just like the articles about vaccines circulating facebook are not written by actual doctors. There is no way you can go though an entire nursing program and come out that ignorant. No way.
