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.

Playing Catch-Up

That's my goal for this weekend. I plan to go through all of my subjects and organize my lecture notes. So far all I did today was the NURS 175 readings for last week (whoops) and the first quiz of the semester in that class.

You know, Potter & Perry is just one of those books that I could be assigned, like, 20 pages to read and somehow it takes an hour or two. Not cool when I have 3 more chapters in this book and 50 pages in each of the other classes! I like to make notes on the content because it's very heavy and otherwise I tend to forget it as soon as I've read it. Add that with the highlighting... takes forever! At least my retention is pretty good this way.

This week we need to write a reflective journal on clinical, on an event that happened to us. I'm a little surprised. We haven't even really talked to the patients yet! I mean, there was my old lady experience, but I don't think that counts as I didn't really do anything!


I hope your weekend is more exciting than mine - right now I've got the table pulled up to the couch, surrounded by books and highlighters, and some really awful chick flick on TV. And I'm wearing a housecoat and pajama bottoms and furry slippers... that I've been wearing since I woke up this morning. Classy!

Yeah, I was bumbling along in my weekend, playing with the kids, blogging, etc. Then it hit me, I have 9 chapters in 3 different books to read for Monday, as well as 6 electronic course modules to get through.

Yikes. So I'm about 1/3 of the way through my reading. Tomorrow afternoon is going to be long... Very long.

Oh yeah! I feel the same. My book that I am currently hating on is Porth, the pathophys book.

I hear ya. I spent 5 hours yesterday reading about Heart failure, and Im still lost!
