So, I may have mentioned that I had to take an orientation "class" for the hospital that I'm going to have clinicals in this semester, and it was fine, except for one thing. I do NOT feel prepared to work in a hospital. I know I won't technically be working there, I mean my teacher will be with me, but jeez louise, when I was going over the EMR I was thinking, goodness gracious, when will I learn all this stuff??? It seemed like so much information that I don't think I know at all. Pretty scary.
For this first week of class we have skills lab where we're learning about IV infusion therapy & stuff like that. That's all fine and dandy EXCEPT for the fact that they want us to wear "business casual" clothing to school. I mean seriously?? Why in the world do we have to dress up to go to freaking school??!! So annoying. I mean the best thing about being a nurse is getting to wear scrubs and NOT having to dress up. I need to go shopping soon though b/c I don't really have any flat shoes that I can wear. I'm thinking something like these
In black & brown. Just a little flat that I can throw on with my "business casual" outfits. Ugh!
Anyhoo, I got my FOUR hour orientation done for the hospital, took my test & made the required 84% on the first try, thank goodness!! Then we had to look over some notes for the OTHER hospital & actually take notes on the ppt to turn in for credit. That was pretty ok, it was only like 47 slides & it was all stuff I already knew, so that was no biggie.
Now I just have to get my school supplies & books, but I'm waiting on my student loan to come in for that. Oh the life of a broke student! I can't wait until this semester is over with so that I can acutally get a job & make some money!!! Even if it is just a little, that's better than NONE!!
Ok well I guess should jump off here & try to go to sleep a little early (even if it is already 12:30 am). I told my hubby I was going to be sorry when school rolls around. No more staying up until 1 or 2 in the morning & then sleeping until noon!! Tomorrow night I'm going to have to force myself to go to bed by 10:00!!
Hope everyone is having a great week!!
