As a student nurse, I will say that that is my worst nightmare.

excellent! i like to drag the students into the room and get them to help with compressions. helps them decide if they have made the right career choice....

Hysterical! So, a good question would be...what went RIGHT?

Julie said...

Candice - not really. She actually did pretty good. After I yelled at her twice to quit staring at the dead dude, put her hands on his chest, and push damn it! push!

Gene - see above. lol

Kristen - oh, just about.......nothing. Thankfully the dude was already dead when he got to us really. We had a nursing student, an EMT student, a med student, and a Resident. Oh - and a surgeon (why? I'm still wondering that too.) PLUS the doc, charge nurse (me), and my 2nd nurse. Too many damn cooks in the kitchen. I had to kick some people out. Then I was told I "had an attitude" with the docs I kicked out. I told 'em to kiss it.

Hey I resemble that remark! ;)

I did CPR my very first day of clinical. Once I got past all the little old lady's ribs popping off her sternum, I was good.

I have been a nurse for 25 years, I've done it all.And I have wanted to be a nurse all my life, but I was restless. I have been in Oncology (4 years),Surgery (20 years) PRN (as needed) - Med Surg,Extended care, MD Office. But for three weeks I have been in ER orienting and it's the first time in years I have wanted to learn new things not just a new drug,or a new procedure.
My co workers are crazy, rude to me,not suporting, fight each other and I have to fight for bits of information.Still I want it as bad as that letter in the mail that sad "you have been accepted into nursing school.
When a patient is there they seem to smell it, come to life and become a well oiled machine.
It's wonderful.
