OB Rotation

I love babies and I love to see their parents all excited over them . I enjoy their happiness.  However, I do NOT want to be a labor and delivery nurse.  Most times its happy and babies are adorable, BUT the sad situations overshadow those happy moments.

I had to see a newborn baby go through opiod withdrawals.  It’s pretty much the saddest thing I have ever seen.  The baby couldn’t have been more than 12 hrs old and he doesn’t have a family to keep him safe.  He was so small and so alone.

I was heartbroken.

It’s Happening

Well it took exactly 3 weeks but I am finally feeling it.

STRESS-

However, I haven’t cried…when I am about to explode with emotion (or whatever it is inside of me) I simply stop thinking.  It works wonders =)  I already finished 2 assignments.  I have 4 more to go.  I could be finishing up one now, but SimChart (Student Nurse Charting website) is acting up & it wont open up my assignment (of course…how did I not see this coming?).

HOWEVER, I will remain calm.  I will remain sane.  I wont make frustrating noises. I will not smash my computer, and I will take deep breaths (currently doing so while I am writing this up).  I will start my care plan and then I will begin to study for the 2 exams that are coming up…

At least I am not the only one stressing about these issues, you know? I have my entire cohort suffering right along with me (I see their FB posts ), and it may sound a bit mean, but it strangely brings me comfort.  There is nothing like your Nursing group- we definitely stick together.  All joking aside, I do like this group.

Besides Nursing School, I have a Church calling (which I LOVE) but I am seriously falling behind on what I need to do.  I hate that.  This week I will sleep very little & catch up on many things.

*GASP*

Motto of the week

I will sleep very little & catch up on many things.

First Exam

I had my first exam for my Child Bearing Ped class.  It was pretty intense.  I only started school a little over a week, but that’s Nursing school for you.  It was 70 something questions long and I am glad/relieved to say that I passed.  I studied a lot for it, and it was a disappointing score, but nevertheless I did pass and I got to admit it felt overall pretty good.  It can only go up.  I’m starting the semester right.  Its going to be okay,  I have to tell myself that often.

Woo! I Passed =D
