There is only 24 days until I graduate college and the stress is really setting in. I am beyond excited to graduate after 4 years and move on with my career but too much is piling up on me. Between graduation, classes (one of which isnt going all that well at the moment because who understand physics of the human body and the worst part is it doesn’t relate to my cardiac major one bit…), work, finding a post grad job, getting ready for an internship at a large heart hospital for the summer in hopes of getting hired on, getting all set up at a different school for the fall to continue my education on top of trying to see family/friends and enjoy life. I’m starting to turn to alc to relax which scares me since getting drunk 4-6 nights a week isnt my style. So I’ll probably have to give away my stash to a friend to hold on to for the time being. If anybody is good at physics or biomechanics I could use your help!
Codes can be a rush. Fighting the angel of death can make anyone feel like a superhero…until it doesn’t.
Then it feels like I’m stealing a person’s last moments on earth. Moments to be savored by loved ones. Moments replaced by violence. That is how I describe codes. Violent. Sometimes…
Experienced my first code blue today when my pt coded right in front of me. Talk about an adrenaline rush! Then 2hrs later that pt coded yet again. After all the excitement was over all the critical care nurses and both directors of inpatient services showed high approval of my handling of the situation. It’s a great feeling knowing that I can handle those situations.
