Okay, so I have been at the hospital for about a month now and I am getting used to the work. I can't say my nails are, because they are getting more ruined everyday from being wet all the time. However, it is nice to be around people all day instead of being inside my house wondering what is wrong with me.
My wrists sometimes hurts from the job, but my right wrist is getting used to it. My left wrist is not however and I had to buy a brace for it in case it hurts again. It seems I extend my wrist too mush and it hurts the bones or ligaments and it causes pain. I don't have super strong wrists and they are pretty small. It is nice when I get to work with someone, especially the temp guy because he always wants to do the scrub sink. That is what makes my wrists hurt. So if he wants to be there, thank goodness!
Yesterday I checked my school website thingy, and my chem II class stuff is already up! I am very nervous about taking a WHOLE YEAR of chemistry in two months, but I really want to try to get As in those classes so I have a better shot at applying to that master program. So this summer I am taking a year of chem and a nutrition class. This summer is going to be insane because I will get no sleep. Then I will also have to go to Lou's wedding and the classes will still be going on. They will end right when I come back! So hopefully, I will not be too overwhelmed by all this, especially since I seem to be getting full time hours at the hospital. I do wish she would not schedule me to at 8am because I took this job thinking I would start at 6am. Well, I guess it doesn't really matter that much. I can always study in the morning. I brought my computer with me to work to see how that goes and it was okay.
Okay so I left off at me passing the CNA exam. That went well. I scheduled my exam in Thatcher, Arizona (where??) because I didn't want to wait until MAY 17 to take my exam at the school. So I figured what's the big deal? People are scared to take it at another place because it will be unfamiliar, but since I took this test before, they setup is basically the same. They tell you where everything is anyways. It really wasn't a big deal. And since no one wants to go to Thatcher, there was only me and another girl there taking the test! I was done fast. I was glad to be done!
Fortunately for me, I did get the job at SHC. I started the Monday after the test, which was kind of fast but whatever. I am a dishwasher. Yup, I have a very high position in the hospital. Sigh. Well, it's better than doing nothing. The job is kind of hard and it hurts my wrists but I think I am getting used to it. I work with two other guys, of course they are both younger than me. Everyday is another chance for me to feel really old. Anyway, one is nice enough and the other is a retard. He thinks this is neurosurgery or something. I don't want to get into it here, because it is not worth it. Just know that I find him very annoying. Apparently I can "transfer" after six months. Hopefully, I can get a CNA position at SHC in six months. If not, I guess there are plenty of dishes to wash.
In more interesting news, I have signed up for the year of chem and the nutrition class. I am scared of the chem class because one of them was supposed to be taught by a certain teacher whom people said was good, but now it is being taught by someone else. I don't want to have a bad experience. Well, I don't know. I think I will take my chances and take the class. It can't be that bad can it? Hmm. Maybe it can. Well, I am hoping for the best. I need these classes to apply for that master program at UA. However, I would prefer an A in these classes! Well, I do have a week with chem before I can safely drop it without record. I am hoping I can keep it!
Once those classes are taken, I can apply to the program. If I get in, great! IF not, I will see about doing LPN or an RN program at a community college. I am thinking if I go that route, I will most likely just save up for flight school. It will take too long to go from ADN to MSN and get an NP. I definitely want to keep moving. The cool thing about out here is that if I take an pass the LPN exam, I can advance in the RN school. I took out some books to see if it is doable. It might be, but I am not sure. There is a lot to learn but a lot of it I already went through when I took that first semester of nursing at KCC. So we shall see.
This summer is Louisa's Wedding! I had a feeling I was going to make it... and I wouldn't be in Carib school. Hmm.
Anyways, I have to go and get some dry cleaning and some stuff. Today I have the day off! Hurray! Tomorrow I start another week of torture, but I guess it's all good for now. I am slowly dying inside, so I told my manager, ha ha!
