Diary of a Nursing Student




SIGMA THETA TAU
Nursing Honor Society
i will be starting nursing proper this June but before that i must first take NCM 100 this summer to prepare me for the grueling studies ahead..............
calling it "preparation" would be wrong, "baptism" would be more apt for here in my country religion is second only to God.....................................................
yesterday we started our training in different ways on injecting medications to a patient(client as we call them)..........................................................................
since learning the proper way of injecting a needle would require practice our clinical instructor assigned us a partner..............................................................
we'll have to practice with our partners as the subject.................... tension mounted, for even if we know that a small prick of a needle would not be fatal its still scary as hell...........
when me and my partners turn to show our instructor what we have learned my hands started to tremble..............................................................................................
i breath deeply before i start................. i aspirated the syringe and filled it with 2.60 cc of sterile H2O(the medication)....... when i saw that my partner is ready i injected it to her
right upper arm just three fingers below the acromion process.......................... i thought i did great but my CI only gave me a grade of 80................. i wonder why....................
its now my turn to be the guinea pig...................... my partners hand are trembling as she posed to inject the damn needle into my flesh................................. it feels like a very large
ant have bitten me............................ when the needle was pulled out of my arm it felt like i have gone to lift a very heavy object.............................. she managed to get a grade of 70.....
poor girl................ and poor me for i am the one who felt the physical pain....................... well i am still alive though so that means she didnt really messed up that much......................
as for today i have to memorize a lot of bacterial names..................................................... so N.I. Malapote, future RN logging out
class is over

at last exams are over, all thats left to do is wait for my grades....
i know i passed all the subjects...... i hope my instructors feel the same way hehe
well i dont have any exciting story today..........
maybe next sem ill be able to tell you more about whats its like to be a nursing student....
N.I. Malapote,future RN logging out


ncm 101- pediatrics nursing, obstetrics nursing,and fundamentals of nursing
community health development
strategies of health education......

those are my subject for this semester..... i have just returned from my vacation thats why it took this long for my new post......
we have had our orientation last week..... that is to familiarize us on the rules and regulations of the college of nursing and also to inform us on what to expect when we finally start our hospital and community duties.......

i know my blog is about my life as a nursing student, but i would like to deviate from that and discuss a political issue.....

i'm very much bothered by the announcement of our president, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo......... she issued an order to the military to launch an all out war against the New Peoples Army(a communist rebel group here in the philippines...).............. the government have long been trying to connect militant groups and hard hitting media personalities with the communist, we fear that she might use this to finnally silence her critics.................... we agree that the rebel groups have caused signnificant damage to our economy but a war against them is not the answer..... the government must address the real root of the problem which is poverty, oppression, and power tripping of politicians in the provinces.......

communism has long been proven to be a failure... communist countries have now adapted a more feasible form of government.... such us socialism...... if communism is a failure why did the communist rebellion in the philippines still exist?

you will not understand why even if i tell you.... you have to experience life in the philippines to fully understand.......

Militant groups fears that their ranks might become the target of the all out war declaration against the New People's Army.
