Paper...

So today at 11:50 pm I have a Gero paper due.  Guess how much of it I've gotten done so far?  I've interviewed my person, THAT'S IT!  Guess how many pages everyone else's paper has turned out to be, oh somewhere in the 13-15 page range!!  So, you know what that means. I'm going to be writing a paper ALL day today and praying that it's decent and that I get a good grade on it.  Also, from what I've been hearing on FB, I guess I'll also be asking what is an Appendix (not the kind that gets large & bursts, but the kind you write on an APA paper).  Learn something new every day in nursing school, even if it  isn't about what valves are involved in APETM (Ape to Man) and why we're auscultating them with the bell and the diaphragm, and oh yeah what you're listening for WHEN you're auscultating them. Have I mentioned before how much I dislike the APA format?  Well, even that is growing on me....So today is going to be a day sitting in front of my computer, which actually isn't all that bad, assuming I don't follow the rules of "Studies for 15 minutes, earned 2 hours of internet" lol.  Ok, I'm off to get the kiddo's some breakfast so I can get rid of the extra's and get down to business.  I've already prepared my youngest that today was all about me getting my paper done.  So, here I go...

  1. I'm with ya sista! I hate APA and MLA!! What I don't get... why the heck to you need to cite the textbook to answer an essay question the textbook asks? Now come on obviously it's your lesson!

MedSurg - Ortho Floor....

Ok can we say TOTAL snooze fest???  Today was our first official day on the MedSurg floor, but unfortunately since the professor figured we might be overwhelmed with over 15 pages of clinical paperwork due in one night, we weren't really able to do much (meaning no passing of meds).  We were basically put into the PCT roles.  So, pretty much it felt like last semester's clinical all over again, a bunch of elderly people, except for these ones have total hip replacements instead of just being old.   And let me tell you I can say with almost 100% assurance that working on the Ortho wing of the MedSurg floor is NOT where I see my future nursing self.  I mean maybe it was just my perception, but I saw the nurses basically in the same role as they were in the nursing home.  Going from patint room to patient room passing meds.  BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I hate that we don't get an ER rotation, I REALLY think that I would like that much more, except that as a new nurse I just don'…

I'm still alive!! Tomorrow is the NCLEX!

So as you can see I have GRADUATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!  I am SO happy that nursing school is over, but can we say holy terrified?  Tomorrow is the NCLEX & I feel thoroughly unprepared.  Fortunately our school provided us with the HURST Review and even though I have been studying this for about 2 weeks now I still feel completely terrified to actually take the test. 
Of my former classmates I know of one so far who has failed....so scary...
The rest of them are chugging along & passing on a daily basis, hopefully I will be one of them!

But to rewind, here are a few pics from graduation & my graduation party that my precious husband & sister threw for me:








As I said, tomorrow I take the NCLEX.  Honestly, up until I had the HURST review I really wasn't that nervous.  During the review the teacher advised us that as of 2012 they have changed the test to make it harder & the first time pass rate went from 94% to 88% (or something like that).  Um what?!…

Frazzle Razzle RN guest post...

One of my first nursing bloggy friends was Rachel and today she is guest posting on this here little 'ol blog.  If you read this blog you probably already read hers, but if not then head on over there.  Again without further ado here is my 2nd guest post:

Hello everyone, my name is Zazzy and I'm an avid reader of Candi's nursing school blog and I'm honored she's chosen to have me host for a day while she's out relaxing in the sun having fun! (I wish you would have taken me in your suitcase CANDI :D)

I have two more semesters of my own to complete before I graduate this May from nursing school, and I also have a fun blog detailing my journey. You can read more at Frazzledrazzlern.blogspot.com

In the meantime while going to nursing school I've been gaining experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and I finally figured out a system that works for me. I was pretty disorganized when I first started and felt overwhelmed with not knowing what to do when a…
