I still have a long way to go. But I feel much better going into Week 4 than I did coming out of Week 1.
Last week I administered medications for the first time. I got a lot of practice on my patient! He had meds in just about every form you can think of- oral, subcutaneous injections (like insulin), IV push, and IV piggyback. It was a good week to test my skills!
The week before that, I got to observe surgeries. One day was in the outpatient surgery center, the other was in major surgery. That was really interesting! I enjoyed it a lot. Will I become an OR nurse right off the bat? Maybe not, but I certainly wouldn't rule it out now.
And just a random side note: This week I found my very first varicose vein! Pregnancy didn't give them to me, nope. Nursing school did!
Alright, back to working on my pharm paper.
