So as I was sitting in Pharm class today thinking that I should have TOTALLY skipped I just couldn't help but shake the feeling that I was wasting my time. Now, I'm not 100% sure that that's true, it was just the feeling that I had. I mean seriously, who KNOWS this stuff besides pharmacists? I seriously doubt if I were to walk up to a nurse working on the hospital floor & ask them what the difference between a muscarinic agonist & antagonist were they would have NO clue what I was talking about. Please tell me how, exactly, this is supposed to help me be a nurse? Now, don't get me wrong, I do find Pharm very interesting (the book more than the actual class) but I just can't help thinking that this is not "real" nursing. As a matter of fact I know for certain that some nursing programs don't even include Pharm, so why am I being tortured? Or should I say "Why are we being tortured?" because believe me I'm not the only one. As a matter of fact this is a picture of our class today:
Ha! Totally kidding!! But I swear I know that some of us feel like this. What about you? Does your nursing program include Pharmacology? Just a weird tidbit though, I also know of some LPN programs that don't even include Patho, now THAT I don't understand but whatev.
Hope you guys had a great Monday!!!!
