The BSN Semester

Classes start Sept 1. I have orientation next week. I am also finally supposed to complete my PALS class. I really hate my job. Lots of changes and none of them good. But I am holding out to change jobs at least until after I finish my BSN, then my options will be greater. I have no idea exactly what I want to do though.

RN to MSN

Let's get this party started. School actually doesn't start until September 1st. But nearly all of the ducks are in a row for this one, plus I can afford it.

I've gotten so close previously to starting the BSN, even took a few classes... but I hated the format. I DO NOT like posting and responding to discussion boards. I also HATE group projects. I think I have finally found a way around both!

It's a tad alternative, but accepted and the BSN portion shouldn't take too long.

Forward progress... because seriously, this job is still NOT what I had hoped it would be, and seriously NOT what I want it to be.

Once upon a time...

I used to write on this blog. I have been pretty busy in the whole Fosterhood thing, so I haven't really been into what's going on the wonderful land of Urgent Care Nursing. Of course this job is BORING.

I start a BSN program again in June so that I can get my Masters in Education. I want to get Wound Care Certified too.

I also am sending in my resume for an LTAC, because I NEED to do MORE. I feel lazy here, and when I actually get cases that are interesting, I don't like them because of the fact that I may have to stay late or run around like a chicken with my head cut off over something because we don't have what we need or because I am so fearful of my IV skills, as rusty as they are, that when I miss, I fear for my job. Which is completely stupid and only a self imposed anxiety at this point but since it's MA work more than RN work... I feel totally... well... BORED!

Is there a field of Nursing that I like?????????

90 Day review

Yup been at the new job 90 days I gues so time for my review. Today I felt like a successful RN here for the first time though. Like I a pro I started an IV on one attempt, drew labs, pushed zofran, and hung fluids. Go ER Nurse me. Good thing I got it though because well, I had been counseled for my poor IV skills after 30 days, but hey in my defense it's not like I'd had a lot of practice in a while at that point, I'd been accessing ports, piccs and broviacs mostly. But yeah being able to just do it like it was an everyday occurrence felt good and it proves that yes i can do it so they should keep me. Other than that its been all MA type of work around here with a lot of Case Management. Sorry there isn't much exciting on here, but hey my BSN is going to start again soon. Yup I'm finally doing it, but seriously even that isn't too exciting.

A Year in Review

January started off with my RN and December ended with a new job in a new field of nursing.
