No, really - what is your EMERGENCY?

This used to be the journal of a nursing student at a prestigious 4 year university that will still remain unnamed. This is now the journal of a Registered Nurse working in an Emergency Department in a major US city. All names have been changed to protect the stupid and the mean. There is no educational value in this journal, sometimes it will be downright mean and catty - this is where I come to vent!

Back in Session

Well, we are back in session for our final semester of nursing school! My school used to only admit once a year to the nursing school and this semester they started admitting twice a year. So we have an additional 80 students running around taking up our valuable space. This also means that, as seniors, we have most of our classes (okay, 2 of the 3) in the nice new auditorium in the nice new building. I'm sure this is giving the administration heart attacks because you know students are dirty and messy (actually we are). The seats in the auditorium are not made for Americans. If you are overweight (and we have some of them) there is a distinct possibility that if you wedge yourself into the seat, you may not get back out. And, the space between the seats from front to back is not very big, so if you try to slide out your butt is right in someone's head. Very uncomfortable - and to top it off, they don't want us to eat or drink in there - HAHAHAHAHA!!! It is also very loud - if anyone is whispering you can hear it all over the room.

Oh, and the biggest injustice this semester - my clinical instructor is making us wear ALL WHITE again. It is a right of passage here for the seniors to get to wear whatever scrubs they want - at least the tops. We did talk her out of white shoes. I don't like my white shoes and much prefer my Danskos.

I'm working in an ED in a rural community hospital this semester - should provide some good stories!!

    Sounds like you are ready to graduate, like, yesterday! LOL! Hang in there, it's better when you've got your RN.
