Girl Job my ass. Haha.
After nursing you realize you have chronic back pain! All that bending for vital signs taking and lifting, turning, etc.Body mechanics don’t seem to work most of the time. Lol. Tall people problems.
Hahaha! Had a good long laugh on this. Herpatitus amp. :))
What I literally do when I get home from graveyard duty.
When you haven’t had your lunch/dinner yet and one of your patients gives free food for everyone. And you’re all like surprised and humble.
And then you come back to the nurses’ station with the food feeling like you got some mana from heaven. Then everyone’s all happy and hungry all of a sudden.
Seriously, Thank you for the patients who do this. Haha.
When one of your patients gets discharged in a good condition, making one less patient to worry about.
And when those who can’t settle their bills and are, uhm, being held, are finally discharged. Hashtag illegal detention.
Not that anyone really cares, haha, but I’m back!
1. So I’m currently working as a volunteer nurse in a medical ward in a nearby private hospital, and I must say it’s going pretty well. To get experience here in the Philippines, you either pay the hospital to train for months with the hopes of becoming a regular.
2. Or you got yourself a backer. Pffffff.
3. So I became a volunteer nurse, it’s better than nothing, and it’s pretty great. The people are nice, we take turns in roles (charge nurse, medication, vital signs ala functional nsg.) Definitely fun people to work with.
4. Got work during the holy week, while everyone’s off. Getting pretty used to this since college.
5. Funny how I was in a confessional yesterday and after being the last one on a long line, the moment I went in, the priests had changed, uhm shifts, and I didn’t know the new one was Indian and I was speaking all Filipino for a moment, only to be interrupted by him saying “English please”. Haha.
6. I was dumbstruck for a moment getting my English mode on with the pressure of giving a confession. Sooo.. yeah.
7. Well my sister just left to become a cabin crew in Qatar Airways, awarded as the best airline in the world. So yeah she’s getting pampered and trained there while it’s just me and my parents at home. Hashtag Empty Nest Syndrome. Haha
8. So yeah I’ll try to blog as often now, mainly on the blog part, not on the Nurses Notes thing. I’ve stopped reading now, but for sure I’ll try to make more once I remember them or learn new ones. Haha.
9. Drop me a message. Laters.
GRAB YOUR LICENSE NOW!… WHOO!
Haha damn I miss them review days at Shield Review Center. But thank God I never had to go back to that place. Finally got my license after being late for a month! Thank you Lord!
I hear my profession calling out to me! :)
Exactly the case here in the Philippines, unless of course you wanna pay to become a volunteer. Yep, no salary, no benefits, no nothing, and we’re the ones to pay to get some “experience”.
ENTER Backer system. This system has changed the nursing profession into means of getting hired based on “Who you know, and not what you know”. So what do we get? Mostly Incompetent, undeserving nurses running hospitals. Ugh. This is the ugly truth.
I was buying something at this grocery when I saw they had a “Buy-one-take-five-more-because-they’re-about-to-expire-anyways” or a clearance section. There were snacks, candies, some household commodities, etc. And It was funny cause there was a guy going through a box of condoms hidden in the middle of the huge pile of snacks.
Yep newsflash, condoms do expire. Latex becomes brittle in the long run, and don’t put them in your wallets, how is that even considered a lucky charm? Heat in your wallets makes it prone to break easier.
That guy was risking using an almost expired condom, make that five, just to save a couple off bucks. Guess he thought it was better than nothing.
