Luckily the medsurg paperwork that looked insurmountable at the beginning of the semester has actually turned out to be pretty manageable, so I can't complain too much about that one. Thankfully I've got 2 clinicals down on the ortho floor with only one more to go & luckily next week I only have one day on that floor since I have my oncology rotation the other clincial day. So technically I only have 1 more day on the ortho floor, YAY!!!!!! After that 3rd week we then switch to a different floor for our last 3 weeks of medsurg clinical and then guess what? I will OFFICIALLY be done with the DREAD medsurg of 3rd semester!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!! I can do it, I can do it, I can do it!!. Whew
Today was pretty ok. I felt MUCH more comfortable being on the floor & taking care of my patient. And I even felt more confident filling out the paperwork (ie. care plans, etc.) Also, I got to see a heart cath, and that was alright. I found it interesting watching the roles of the scrub nurse & the circulating nurse. I think I would like the circulating nurse's job. I like fast paced.
This Friday is our first OB test which I'm nervous about and then Monday is our first Medsurg test, which I'm TERRIFIED about. But I guess there's nothing I can do except study. Thankfully I have tomorrow off and as bad as I just want to SLEEP the whole day, I guess I'll use it to study my buttumpkus off and pray for a good grade on both of these exams.
I just have to get through this semester......pray for me!!!
