  1. "I'm trapped in a glass cage of emotion!!!"

    So...I got myself into anesthesia school. Since the time I was accepted last December I have ridden quite the roller coaster of feelings, thoughts, and emotions. I know most of my predecessors have gone through the same and those about to start this journey as well are going through very similar situations, but this is one of those things that they tell you about, and you really just have to experience yourself. The 5 stages talked about on this forum is a very good description of how it goes. ...
  2. ICU no more

    Today I turned in my badge and said goodbye to everyone on my unit. I will really miss the friends I have there. It was a great place to work.

    So here I am studying for my first set of finals for nursing school and to be honest I feel very confident in my ability to do well on the final. The best part of the week was getting through Friday. I had my final head-to-toe assessment that we had to conduct on our partner in 20min or less. It consisted of 50+ things we had to say and do everything from the test name, demonstration, and which cranial nerve it was (name, number, and whether sensory, motor, or both). The nerve racking part of this ...
