The Beginning of Nursing School

I started Nursing School this semester. So far, nothing too exciting has gone on.

But on Monday, I had my first round of clinicals at the hospital!

I was on a Medical/Oncology floor and assigned to a nurse named Trent. Because we haven't learned much, there wasn't much for me to do. I listened to some heart beats/lung sounds on some patients. And checked their pulses and such. And cleaned up some poo. Otherwise, I just followed the nurse around.

So, it was uneventful. But everyone has to start somewhere, right?

Here I am all dressed up and ready to head to the hospital!! I felt so official in my uniform with my badge and everything!

I would like to make excuses for this picture by saying that at this point in the day I'd already been at work for almost nine hours (after working twelve hour shifts the two days preceding)... So I was TIRED! But the battery on the camera died so we only got one shot. And this is it.
