Wk 3 Heart
So this week I have branched out a little and have had lunch with a few new people. Guess what? It was actually FUN. I know you are thinking not my hermit friend, Shawnna. But YES me -- HERMIT no more!!! Aren't you PROUD! I am enjoying getting to know others that have embarked on this wild adventure with me. We are all so different and yet very similar....very interesting.
This week was a FULL WEEK - no fun holidays to lighten the load. We checked off on Vitals on Monday. I get to redo blood pressure because some of my classmates were being loud outside the exam room. Lucky me because I couldn't hear a darn thing through that stethoscope. I am partial to my own stethoscope- creature of habit you know.
Going over the HEART in Anatomy and Physiology II. I am determined to really understand this chapter.
Learned about the "Nursing Process" and the difference between "medical" diagnosis and "nursing" diagnosis. Who knew?? I had no clue we had our OWN diagnosis.
I did horrible on an A&PII test because I chose to take cold medicine and go to sleep rather than study. I really needed it, and I am learning that I have to take care of myself.
