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).
