I know....it has been awhile since I have been here.
I would have loved to have had my camera with me this past week...you would have loved it too.
You would have gotten a great laugh at my expense.
You might have enjoyed watching me change the sheets of a bed while a dummy patient got flipped back and forth....or maybe enjoyed my embarrassment (we have a mixed class) as we learned how to give a bed bath to a female. I am sure the one male was probably just as embarrassed when we learned how to give a male a bath. I do feel sorry for this one guy in our class...especially since there are a few in our class that are enjoying giving him a hard time. I would like to put them over my knee...thought I left that stuff behind in grade school. Kind of a scary thought.....they are now trained to use defibrillators.
I have learned a lot....and kept an A average...it is nice to know my brain still works.
As you know I am taking CNA classes.
Most states follow the guidelines that have been set for all those taking CNA training....usually 75 hours of class time and clinics and then you can take your exam. But North Carolina decided that that was not enough. We will have filled 162 hours of school time and clinic time by the time we finish our exam. Those hours used to be spread out over 4 months...but unknowingly..... I ended up in a class where our hours are spread out over 5 weeks! Yikes! I guess you know why I have not been here much. We have already lost two students and will probably loose several more because you have to stay on top of the studying....tests come often and usually cover 4 to 5 chapters. This week we had two tests.
To tell the truth...my brain is on overload...and I am pooped!
But....I am having fun and meeting some neat people.
The ones that I seem to have drifted toward will not be stopping with the CNA class....several are already scheduled for summer classes....they plan to go on to become RNs.
So.....I am thinking about that....I don't know we will see what happens after this class.
When I think about what I have seen and experienced with CNAs in the past (not good).....I might just hang out for awhile....I don't know.
BUT...no school tomorrow!!!!!!
I do have some studying to do...and I want to check in on some friends :)....so the day will fly.
That is it for me.....
no pictures yet....
I'll have to see if I can bring my camera....maybe the dummies won't mind if I put them on my blog. :)
I hope to be back soon.
Have a great Resurrection Sunday!
