Nursing Blog Day 4:
I cannot believe that on the 4th day of class we have already read over 12 chapters in at least 7 books many books and today learned about dosage calculations and injections. So soon! I ended up really enjoying the math and especially syringe calibrations. The hands on aspirating the syringe and drawing saline from a vial was the high of my day. I know it won't be that way for long, but I am just enjoying all my firsts.
Everyone in the class received their lab backpacks stuffed full of fun stuff like PPE, tubes, and catheters. YAY!
On the way home as I passed mom and dads house I thought how happy mom would be that I am in nursing. How she would just devour all my nursing books and fight me over who got to read which book first. I know she'd be the first person to call me and ask what I did at school today. Then it hit me, all over again, why I started nursing school in the first place.
It was all for you mom, I wanted to save you, but look ma, I made it!
