All I needed to learn I learned...(on the job)
Did I know when I started nursing school that I would
Clean up vomit?
Change diapers on big people?
Change dressings on gaping flesh wounds?
Have to gain the ability to think 2 steps ahead of the doctor or try to read a doctors mind?
Did I know that I would:
Be exposed to TB, Hepatitis, AIDS, MRSA, and toxic medications?
Love some patients and put up with others?
Be told by my patients that I treated her like a dog (she had Alzheimer's)?
Oh and did I know that we would use leaches to treat a patient?
Nope. I was never told that in nursing school. (Or graduate school for that matter).
