On The Long Road to Becoming a Nurse — November 15, 2017

On The Long Road to Becoming a Nurse

I wrote this post not long after I had started at University on the road to becoming a nurse. It is a very long journey but I have covered a lot of ground already. You can see how I am getting on now by clicking here.

 

I’m two months into my studies

And have found it pretty full-on

My head is spinning with info

And I wonder where the time’s gone!

The poor dummies have taken a battering

Where we have pummelled their chest

They’ve been prodded, pricked and manhandled

To help us perform at our best

I’ve become addicted to YouTube

To help me out with my studies

I am re-acquainted with referencing

‘Cite Them Right’ and I are best buddies!

I thought I had a good knowledge

From experience, I had before

But this is delving much deeper

And I need to learn so much more

I knew it was not going to be easy

And despite sometimes getting a bit terse

I am so happy to be studying

To become a Registered Nurse!

 

Negative Feedback for Revision — November 14, 2017

Negative Feedback for Revision

 

I thought I would write this tongue-in-cheek poem about the revision I am doing for an exam I have coming up soon at Uni. As some of you may know, I am studying for my degree in Adult Nursing, you can read how I got on at the beginning here.  It is a bit manic at the moment with a long placement coming up and four assignments due in (I have already done those at least), an exam next week and this one in a month.

 

I am getting myself into a tizzy, revision is so hard for me

Trying to get my head around Human anatomy and physiology!

Every week learning a new system and sometimes there have been two

By the time we reached reproduction, I’ve forgotten just what to do!

Hormones, don’t get me started why, do you need such a long name?

My poor head is constantly aching with information overloading my brain

Oh yes, I can label a nephron, maybe draw a neuron too

I know how my lunch is digested, on its journey to becoming a poo!

Negative feedback is not just for Ebay, homeostasis started it  first

When the body becomes dehydrated, the hypothalamus triggers your thirst.

Cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate. This we all have to know

I’m sure that my blood pressure is rising, and that pretty soon I will blow

I have used every resource I can think of, textbooks and YouTube to start

I even found some goodies on Pinterest, great diagrams of the lung and the heart

Four weeks before the exam now, I really hope that I’ll pass

I don’t want to have to re-sit it, as that will be a pain in the arse!

(Sorry to end on a bum note, but I am all out of fancy words).
