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.

I just returned from filling out a stack of paperwork to begin volunteering at a nearby ED! I need to prove I don't have TB or communicable chronic diseases or a history of robbing banks, and then orientation's on October 21.

As I was leaving, the triage nurse was assessing someone for syncope.

Excited? This girl right here.

Of course, using any real medical skills or providing advice is verboten on pain of lawsuit - the whole point of this endeavour, for me, is to keep my eyes and ears open and to network myself into a UNE position next summer. I'm also planning on being my charming self and being soooooo helpful and curious that the staff nurses can't help but invite me into the room to observe cool stuff.

The plus side of doing all of this paperwork, I'm told, is that once (if?) I'm hired with AHS, I won't have to do it again! Huzzah, starting sooner!
