Going on vacay....

Ok so as I have posted a million times, I'm going on vacation next week.  So if you'd like to guest post on either or both of my blogs then just let me know & I'll be happy to showcase your post.  It can be about anything you want.  Since I have two blogs, you can post on either one.  My other blog is basically about life, general stuff & this one, obviously, is about nursing school/nursing stuff, so take your pick! :D  If you want to submit one just have it in to me by this Thursday and I'll be more than happy to put it up for you.  Of course I might have to ask someone exactly how to do that, but I'm sure I can figure it out haha.


  1. I might could write a post on here about just returning to grad school in general and all the lovely stuff that entails...change in routine, etc. I can write on the other one if you prefer though. I can e-mail it to you, and you can just copy it into a new post if you want. Let me know! :-) I am also counting down the days until my vacay except I will have already started back to school by then. We are going to the beach for a long weekend for Labor Day and my birthday...yippee!

  2. I am so excited about my cruise and then lucky me I go on ANOTHER mini vacay to visit my mom's best friend over the Labor Day weekend. We'll get to go to Chicago and to the dunes, I can't wait for that one either!! Ok, so go ahead & write the post & then email it to me at, complete with pictures or whatever & then I'll just paste it on here. :D Thanks!!

    1. Okay, guest post written and sent. I like to do things while they are fresh on my mind so I don't forget and break a promise. :-)

  3. I'll email you a blog posting if you wanna put it on your page.

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'…

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

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…

Introducing Candi Kinney, FNP-C!!

Yep that's right people, IT IS DONE! I know it's been three months since graduation but hey, I've been decompressing!! Actually I still am. Last night I was laying on the couch with my daughter watching Christmas movies & I looked over at her and said, "I'm so glad that I'm not doing homework right now" and she goes, "Yo

u're still not over it huh?" hahaha!! No I'm not!! 6 Six (APA wouldn't let me type the number 6 haha!) years of nursing and nursing practitioner school still has me traumatized!!

But I digress. Let's talk about NP school. So here goes with some tips and insight that I promised.

1. Every semester you get the syllabus and trust my you will FREAK!! Now trust me again, STOP IT. The syllabus ALWAYS looks worst than what it actually is. Yes there are 50 bazillion due dates, especially if your school was online like mine. Can we say weekly discussion boards (that are so worthless). Just remember, you finished last …
