How to start my very first blog...?
Well maybe I should explain where I'm at right now. I have about 6 weeks left of actual uni attendance time til I'm finished this course. And I can't wait. I'm just so bored this year. I mean, I should be interested - it's nursing, I'm a nurse, and I like being a nurse. But it's just so...nothing. Building a bridge with drinking straws anyone?
Apart from uni, I've been working at the same hospital for nearly 2 years now. Not particularly because I like it (the hospital), but because the hours suit me at the moment and I have too many short-term jobs on my resume and it makes me look a bit flaky. Maybe I am, but I'm going to try hard to make it look like I'm not! So where I work, I'm a casual and I work on different wards and campuses. Good experience I guess, getting to see all the different specialties. Lately I've been getting sent to mostly Acute Psych and Slow-Stream Rehab. And I should say, I'm a night shifter by choice, so now you know I must be a little strange (we all are). I quite enjoy these 2 places, apart from the adrenaline rushes in psych that happen when I think the doors in Seclusion are going to be beaten down or when I get the "I'm going to remember your face and shoot you in the street!" threat from an HDUer.
Alright, well I just wanted to give you a bit of an introduction. More stories and debriefings to come.
