Minty Fresh

I PASSED!!!!!!!! The national registry test is done. I have rarely been so nervous before a test in my life. So now I can concentrate on my paramedic studies and start sending those job apps to every hospital and fire service that I can find.

Paramedic school is starting off slowly. The College, in it's infinite wisdom, decided to kick us up to the old campus. I guess they became tired of us putting the anatomical study skeletons in suggestive positions. Anyhoo, most of our practical time has been spent moving equipment. As to last weeks I.V. practical, I didn't get to stick anybody. Instead we were issued I.V. tubing and some catheter needles and sent home to practice. If I don't get to make someone bleed this week, I'm gonna stick myself and bleed on the instructors shoes.

Top Dog Again

98.2 GPA and now I'm waiting till Sat. for the practical exam and the NR test on Tuesday. Clinicals were awesome. I actually got to help people who were in need and only had to deal with one leach who felt the world owed him everything. A huge round of thanks to all of the Paramedics, EMTs,Firefighters, Nurses, and Doctors who not only endured my endless questions, but also explained without me asking, told stories about their student days, and shared tales of things to gross too even think of during dinner breaks. Last, but not least, a huge thank you to Mr. Instructor Guy. You are freaking awesome!
