Wow, can you believe it's October already? I sure can't! Fall is flying by. Believe it or not I'm already planning my spring schedule for school. Tomorrow I meet with my adviser.
Today we got to explore the nursing labs a little bit. We were introduced to METI Man, a nursing patient simulator. He's kind of like a robot. LOL* Or a mannequin with robot qualities. He breathes, which is really creepy at first, and he also blinks. He bleeds, urinates, can be injected or used to practice administering medications through IV's. His pupils dilate, his tongue swells, you can feel a pulse in his feet, neck, and wrist - he's even anatomically correct so you can practice inserting catheters on his male OR female interchangeable parts. It's really pretty amazing! I'm so glad we're able to have this incredible technology to practice on. My biggest fear, and I'm sure it's likely the fear of many other nurses or nurses to be, is hurting a patient. If I'm gonna screw up, I want to do it on METI Man and not a REAL man!
Still working towards my goal of all A's, or at least as close to them as I can get, and guess what? I got an A on my psychology test! Out of 67 students in our class, five of us received A's. So I'm pretty proud of that. Now I'm off to bed...had a long evening spent with my Hubby and gorgeous girlie girls, and after a good nights rest I need to get back to studying. ;)
