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!

Meme: What does your stethoscope look like?

I've been tagged by Student RN Tiffany!

Here are the rules:

1) Post a picture of your stethoscope

2) Tell what you love about it

3) Tell what you hate about it

4) Tell me what your dream stethoscope would be

5) Does it have a name?

6) Tag all your nursing friends (Including the one that tagged you) and dont forget to leave a comment on their blog telling them that you tagged them!


1) I already posted a picture of it :) I love my engravings. They're so me!

2) Mostly, I love the fact that it's got the horse engraving and my name/school/grad year. It keeps me connected to the idea that some day I will graduate from this chaos! I also love how loud it is as I can sometimes be a bit hard of hearing. Probably due to my extensive telephone work and the iPod usage that I enjoy whenever possible :) I also love how heavy it is. Shocking, I know, but when things feel flimsy in my hands I just don't feel as confident with them. This guy is NOT flimsy!

3) Bah, the only thing I hate is being the only person in my whole freakin school who doesn't have a bell AND a diaphragm. Everybody's like dude, wtf is wrong with your scope?

4) LOL, I don't have enough experience with them to know what I would change. I like mine. I would REALLY like one that could magically shrink down into my back pocket when I didn't need it!

5) Not yet, but I'm sure it will. We've only had them on the unit twice now! I've called it "My Little Pony" a couple of times. Maybe that will stick. Or how about, "Damn this thing in my pocket digging into my leg!"

6) Oooh I totally tag back Tiffany, little d, Lou, Somnambulant (if you're still blogging these days!), and Wardbunny. I'll comment on your blogs tomorrow to let you know. But for now... I am off to bed!
