About Me

undergrad RN
I'm a twenty-something Canadian student. After stumbling through a few years of college, I finally managed to get into the nursing school of my dreams, where I hope to graduate in 2012 with a nursing baccalaureate degree. I want to offer an honest look into how a modern nurse is educated, both good and bad. Eventually I hope to compare my education to my day-to-day career and see how it holds up. Whatever happens, it should be somewhat entertaining. Find me on allnurses.com!

Hey, You! Spam Guy!

I (and every other blogger I know) have been getting a lot of email requests asking me advertise or repost things I do not care about or wish to endorse. I do not make any money off this blog - any endorsements I may make are strictly because I am personally pleased with the results.

I DO NOT and WILL NOT repost anything someone emails me. If I want to link to something, I will find it myself.

If you want to spread the word about something, make your own blog!

All spam received at my blog email is deleted without reading.

The Diva Update

Well, it's been 4 days shared ever-so-intimately between me and my DivaCup.

Bottom line: If you have a uterus and are pre-menopausal, go. Now. Run. To your nearest vendor of menstrual cups. Purchase one for yourself and one for each of your female friends.

No leaks at all, after bathing, biking, toileting, or sneezing. It kinda suctions itself to the vaginal wall and makes a supergood seal. For the first time, my white undies stayed that way, without the whole soak/wash regime! The discomfort I had on the first day was due to the long stem. I cut about 1/4" from the bottom of the stem and now I can't feel a thing. It's like a revelation down there. No tampons sucking up all the moisture. No giant mess due to pads. No ewwwwww, not even when emptying out the cup. But I'm good like that.

The learning curve I have yet to master is the art of insertion, but I discovered there are about a million ways to put that thing in, so I just need more practice.

Anyway, back to your regular scheduled program of Undergrad RN, posting on meaningfully student-nurse-related subjects.
