I have an interview!!

Guess who has an interview on Friday at 2:00 pm!! Yep, me!!

 

It's at a hospital in our next town over (about 15 minutes away) for a CNA position.  I'm sort of confused by the whole CNA/PCT thing.  I am hoping that these are the same positions, but even if they're not I'll just be glad to get my foot in the door.  This way I can apply for other positions as they come open AND I'll hopefully have a place to work when I graduate with my RN :)  I'm so super excited!! 

And guess who else is STILL waiting on their Med/Surg grade?? Errr, yes, me :{  Did I mention how much I hate to wait?  And the worst part is that it's a freaking scantron test.  I mean yes there were extra questions but come on, how long could it take??  I heard through the grapevine that one of the teachers added some new questions to the test & they were evaluating to see if these were the questions that caught everyone up (they said the average was pretty low) & if so they were going to consider throwing these questions out.  Welllll I kind of hope they don't b/c they said if they ended up throwing out some questions on this test then they would have to make them up on the final.  Uh, no thanks! 

So, here I sit at my computer playing Candy Crush and TOTALLY procrastinating from doing my newborn care plan while I hit refresh on D2L to see if the grades have been posted.  **Sigh** On top of the fact that I also should be working on redoing my care plan from last week's clinical.  The teacher TOTALLY murdered it.  She said it was a GREAT Med/Surg careplan, just not so rocking of an OB care plan.  So I'm having to do that over as well.  I think I'll wait & do that tomorrow night though, because what else do you feel like after you've done a 12 hour shift?  Coming home & doing a careplan right?   I know, I'm crazy. 

The weekend is getting close! :)

  1. Congrats on the interview! PCT = CNA in a hospital setting.

    1. Yeah, the nurse admnistrator was kind of surprised by the PCT title. But you were right, they are the same thing. :)

  2. I'm sure you will rock both the med-surg grade and the interview! Being a CNA was the best thing I ever did for my nursing career.

    p.s. I hated waiting for grades, too!

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'…

I'm still alive!! Tomorrow is the NCLEX!

So as you can see I have GRADUATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!  I am SO happy that nursing school is over, but can we say holy terrified?  Tomorrow is the NCLEX & I feel thoroughly unprepared.  Fortunately our school provided us with the HURST Review and even though I have been studying this for about 2 weeks now I still feel completely terrified to actually take the test. 
Of my former classmates I know of one so far who has failed....so scary...
The rest of them are chugging along & passing on a daily basis, hopefully I will be one of them!

But to rewind, here are a few pics from graduation & my graduation party that my precious husband & sister threw for me:








As I said, tomorrow I take the NCLEX.  Honestly, up until I had the HURST review I really wasn't that nervous.  During the review the teacher advised us that as of 2012 they have changed the test to make it harder & the first time pass rate went from 94% to 88% (or something like that).  Um what?!…

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…
