    Your brain must feel like it's full of limp noodles...When is finals for you??? I remember how exhausted I was in nursing school...I get tired now, just thinking about it....hope you did well.
    I just got done a ton of shifts and now have 6 days away from the hospital. I booked off a couple of education days to take a Palliative Care course...I go tomorrow.

    I suppose, with your 2 little kids, that it would be difficult to go to somewhere quiet...ei...a library....Tried headphones? Earplugs? There is a huge nurse to patient ratio on long term care...it is definately not for the faint of heart...The further up the food chain you go the larger the ratio...for example...There's tons of PCAs(nursing attendents) working the floors for our 78 residents. There's 2 LPNs and 2 RNs doing meds and treatments for those 78. I work full nights...I'm responsible for all 78 residents, including the "locked" dementia wing that opens up at night due to lack of funding for enough staff to keep it locked as it should...soooooo out come the wanderers who have no concept of night and day(not their fault)....plus I have to over see the other 3 staff members on my shift and find replacements for sick calls...it's a juggling act sometimes...
    I don't know what it's like working the psych unit...except for dealing with elderly dementias...I remember the psych rotation was the one I liked the least...I'm pretty blunt and I expect some sort of progress....I got tired of the same young people coming in with the same stuff, time and time again...not appearing to try and help themselves...made me nuts. I remember a few who'd put tiny little slashing marks on their wrists...come onto the psych unit and get Demeral whenever they wanted...often they'd complain of a headache...with a smile on their face...I got very frustrated and was thrilled to be finished that rotation.
    Our sound company works with live bands every weekend...this Sunday we're doing a band called "State of Shock"...they've had some radio play up here....As for a band...we've got to build one up again....Bill's leaning towards building a house band for The Zone...sounds good to me...our equipment is in there and I know it's very good...
