New Grad news
Work has been aggravating and educational. I was doing so well sticking people (IV’s) and the last 3 days I suck…just could not get a line in anyone. I would try twice and have to get someone else to get the stupid IV in..grr. I felt pretty stupid and bad for having to bother someone else to do my job. So I mentioned that to one of my coworkers. I don’t know if I just messing up the technique or just getting bum veins. So the next thing I know every time someone needed to be stuck I got volunteered. Which was great because then I was doing better. YEA! Next cool thing I got out of work late. Why is that great? I got to do my first NG tube. For those not familiar with what that is its a tube that goes down your nose. I did great. The nurse that was training me on it said I did a fantastic job. I was so proud of myself. I love my job everyone really likes helping out the new grads. Unlike some places where they eat the young for dinner. I really got lucky..
