I am a mom to the most beautiful little boy, a wife to a wonderful Hubby, a fur mommy to a crew of fur babies and a pediatric oncology nurse to some of the best kiddos on the planet. Spending time with my family is the best thing in the world. I couldn't ask for anything more then what I have already been blessed with.
Prince Phillip and I went to see Up on Saturday night. This was me studying hard...The movie was incredible, seriously, incredible. If you haven't seen it yet, take the one you love and go see it. The movie was such a wonderful example of true love. I cried, I cried in a G rated Pixar movie, really?!? Yep I did, I'd go see it again right now if I could.
Everyone should get up off the couch and go see it. I don't want to say any more about it because I don't want to ruin it for anyone. :)
Team meds today was great. It was Jamie, Travis and I on a floor all by ourselves doing no nursing care except for med passing. The three of us get along super well, probably the best of our clinical group. We're going to lunch tomorrow when we get off for time to chit chat and have a beer. My friend Jamie is breast feeding, so she's going to have to pump and dump it so little baby Ty wont get drunk. :)
I hung a bunch of IV meds, gave one subQ injection, passed a ton of PO meds, and I think that's it. We aren't allowed to give meds without our instructor, not even with our RN, so when we are on our normal floor we can't give meds except on our assigned meds day. I think I got 2 med days this semester and maybe 4 last semester, so having this opportunity to pass meds for 6 hours today and 5 hours tomorrow is great. I feel like a real nurse passing meds, because what I've noticed, RNs basically do procedures, admissions, d/c, assessments and pass meds. Obviously there is a bit more that goes into being an RN then just those 5 things, but that's the gist.
