I was reading something about “lose” yesterday in “The yellow world” by Albert Espinoa who faced Osteosarcoma in his teenage time. He shared his story about what cancer has taught him, “loss” is one of the things. “
I was quite upset that my shift was canceled because of the induction in the other hospital today because that means I will earn less this week. Thus, all the negativities were just waved away when I arrived the hospital. I was so amazed and stunned. The hospital looks so big, new, hmm,, or I would say it looks smart! The most amazing thing happened was when the lady handed a consent form for working in ED. On the other words, they may assign me to ED one day.
I was screaming in my mind “THAT’S SO COOL!!!’
I am so excited and astonished for whatever is going to happen on my nursing journey in Australia. Every day and every shift are challenges.
At the time what Dave, my priest, said to us last week just lightened up in my mind “ Which stage of the time that God set for us are you at? “ Hmm, I am in my learning stage, I believe.
Well, all I want to remind myself today is that all the pains and hard works are starting paid off now, I need to always remember to look at what I have on hands and keep it positive.
I’m allocated to an orthopaedics ward that made me very anxious as I’m a medical nurse, however, 2 weeks later, I’m still breathing.
As a surgical ward, it is very fast and busy. People come and go. There could be 8 discharges and 5 admissions in a day. So just need to speed up yourself. Work is more like running on a treadmill.
The ratio of nurses to patients is about 2:8~12 , depending on the number of discharges.
Before I turn on my study mode, I just would love to share my little experience here today.
I mave have mentioned before that Clinical assessment or I would call it PE is very important in the medical settings. Because this is one of essential skill to find out the problems before the critical situation shown.
I still can’t believe it has been a week now. Time also goes fast, doesn’t it?
Well, this is a very intensive course. I am just like everyone else in the class being very stressed, and didn’t eat well. (unfortunately, I haven’t lost any weight yet). I have been studied for 10 hours a day and here is 20 more assignments need to be done in the following weeks.
D3 @ IRON course
So far, we have learnt about doing a physical assessment in oz way. Nursing is really independent here, they can prescribe panadol, oxygen, urinanalysis under her professional assessment.
I’m still finding my way to fit in the shose.
5 days before flying to Australia, on another word, 5 days before I start my journey for my dream, being a qualified nurse in Australia. This is another reason that I wanted to start my blog, apart from recording my journey in the world, I would also like to record the hardest part in my life.
