    It's over!

    Hey everybody! I'm just droppping by to give ya'll the update about my externship program. It's finally over. My last day was Wednesday. To refresh everyone's memory, I worked in the cardiac surgery intermediate unit for my summer externship. I am a senior nursing student at the 2nd largest nursing school on the east coast.

    I received an "A" for the program. I got to see a whole lot working on my floor. Some of the things include: patients right out of heart surgery, chest tube removals, patient with all kinds of feeding tubes, nasogastric tubes, thoracotomy patients, patients with valve replacements, PCAs, a drain removed from the pericardial sac of the heart, PICC line insertions, pacing wires, patients on ventilators, chronics, and so much more.... Those are just a few off the top of my head. I got a lot of valuable experience, and I learned a lot. I have been offered a position of the floor, and I plan on working there are a Caretech until I graduate.

    I can't even begin to describe how fortunate I was to be a part of this program. I met a lot of great families, and I couldn't have asked for better patients. I loved them all

    It was great, very interesting. It also made me very very busy and very very tired. How was yours?

    Speaking as the poster child for cardiac care, I thank you for your dedication...

    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.

    The opinions expressed by this poster are wholly his own, and should never be construed to even remotely be in representation of his employer, its agencies or assigns. In fact, they probably fail to be in alignment with the opinions of any rational human being.

    Well I think we can all safely take a guess as to who will be paying the bills in this marriage . You go Jen.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
