Heart of Healthcare

I'm just a nursing student working my way through the RN program.
So far I'm surviving.. Let's hope it stays that way..

Anyways this blog is designed so that I can rant out the life and times of an average nursing student..
As of this moment all I can tell you is it takes a lot energy, patience and perseverance..
Oh and let's not forget the lack of sleep and social life!

Ha scare you yet?

You know you’re a nursing student when…

You discuss the consistency of your patients’ poop on your lunch break..and thats not weird to you.

I can actually picture myself as a nurse during the war times… it would be a challenge but totally worth it

"From the day a girl contemplates entering training, she looks forward to the day when she has successfully passed the long, hard trials and tribulations of a probationer and has earned the privilege of having the symbol of dignity placed upon her head. That moment is the acme of her training school career."

Your sense of humor seems to get more “warped” each year. 

Top 10 Reasons to Become a Nurse

1) Pays better then fast food, though the hours aren’t as good.
2) Fashionable shoes and sexy white uniforms.
3) Needles: “Tis better to give than receive”
4) Reassure your patients that all bleeding stops…eventually.
5) Expose yourself to rare, exciting and new diseases.
6) Interesting aromas.
7) Courteous and infallible doctors who always leave clear orders in perfectly legible handwriting.
8) Do enough charting to navigate around the world.
9) Celebrate all the holidays with your friends- at work.
10) Take comfort that most of your patients survive no matter what you do to them.

Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.

Nurse kitty is very wise :) and cute !

Haha love it! Personally I’d go for prune juice, or fruit lax, or lactulose.. Anything but going through the other way!
