Enjoying my break...

Still have a several more weeks before I start school & I'm always surprised by how quickly I decompress after school's out.  Of course this semester was pretty relaxed in the first place so I guess that's why it was easy.  I have done nothing since the break.  Well, that's not true, I did get together with 2 of my other nursing buddies & their significant others for dinner one night, that was nice.  It was interesting because I really like the two girls, they are very sweet.  But after we left the restaurant I asked my hubby what he thought about them & he said "They aren't someone I would see you hanging out with."  It was an interesting observation, b/c he was probably correct.  Those two particular girls are very smart, sweet & on the shy side & I am about as far from that as you can get (well not the smart part ;).  But, like I said, I really like them alot & we had a great dinner. I like getting to know my classmates on a more personal basis. 

My kids are out of school until the 8th, so for now I'm enjoying hanging out with them, but I know once they go back & the hubs goes back to work, that I'll be ready to go back too.  Until then I'm just hanging out & enjoying my fam, b/c I know that next semester is going to be wild!!

Hope everyone has a safe & happy New Year!!

Blessings,

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 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…

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 …
