A Taste of my future world.. of my future Life
The first term of the second semester this school year is coming to a close for a christmas vacation. Yahoo! No question, there's a way to put a happy mask this yuletide season. I survived my delivery room exposure at Cotabato Regional and Medical Center, Cotabato City; clinicl exposure at Dizon Hospital and Kidapawan Doctors Hospital; surpassed the nerve wrecking exams of Methos of Research, Psychopathophysiology, Curative and Rehabilitative Nursing Care Management. In a way, I feel like I learned a lot but that's not quite enough. I've learned important skills like how to medicate oral meds, intravenous thru tubing, nebulization, assisting and handling in the delivery, newborn care and post mortem care. I also learned a little amount about ABG and ECG during the symposium last Sunday at the AVR Room. And of course, the boring lectures every Wednesday night, Thursdays and Fridays.
Nursing is not an easy course. It's not a piece of cake! Nursing care goes through challenging activities. We go to clinical setting of three days a week to hone our new skills with real patient and we get to see the real world applications of science as we learn. Then three days classes and then a ward class every Sunday. We spend 3 to 6 hours every class. It turn myself into a breakdown machine. Every week, I have two quizzes, nusing care plans, 1 reading, drug studies, and a comprehensive assesment. These things scare and agitate nursing students to death. All these are nerve wrecking. But those are not to be dreaded as they said because it's part of the training to an effective, competitive amd efficient nurse someday.
Honestly, I enroled in nursing because there is a great demand of nurses abroad. It is a sure way to earn money, and perhaps a good life. Yes, I might be a nurse but I'm not doing nursing. But as my nursing studies progresses, everything changes. I persist to continue nursing because I learn to love nursing and everyhting about it. It;s amazing the things that people will let you do to them where you're in a uniform to inspect, palpate, auscultate, and do some nursing care. Of course, you have to do first a bed side care when you go to your patient's room and most of all, to establish rapport. This is done to gain trust and cooperation to your patient for your 6 to 8 hours span of care. I like nursing because I get to do so many things with my hands and my brain at the same time. The procedures aren't mindless; they require thinking and planning. I never lost the need to be of service to others. I dreamt of helping other people not by means of money. I'm willing to volunteer my time and knowledge. That's why I joined Red Cross Youth Council in our school which places a high value in Service and Senior Citizens Medical Service volunteer. And learn to love nursing. Okay, I know, it sounds too good to be true. It's not an easy job, you know. It requires dedication. Oh c'mon, it seems that I want to quit nursing and be a nurse. Heheh. Damn, I'm not that good. I guess, if I have to rate myself from 1 to 1o (10 as the highest), I'll give 4- blag! lower. Yes, it's true. I still have lots of rice to eat. I mean, to learn more about nursing be it in skills, knowledge and attitude.
Chuy; and a chuy photo shooter
Was watching TV when I stumbled to a tele magazine regional show that was produced by ABS-CBN Cagayan de Oro, named chuy.
Educational and entertaining. These are two ingredients that make Chuy a cut above the rest. It offers lots of informations and the delivery was interesting and appealing. The show jammed by three good-looking hosts- Richard...ah, err, uhm, I forgot, it's Ryan, Tina and Rishi with a special participation of MOR CDO Disk jockey Bernie Bitok-bitok who stamped their individual mark on the show with their own brand of elegance and wit. With the show, you will be able to relate yourself. Just as if you are director, you would point your camera at a scene that recreates the image in your mind. The show offers interesting segments. They features ur sport, ur style, ur idol, ur gmik, ur muzik, u-nik, fud trip, uso, you, and jukbuk. Some of the segments can gain inspiration for the viewers. It’s a proof that Regional shows did well also for entertainment… It’s one show I try not to miss every Sunday 11 A.M.. It’s definitely, Chuy!!!
"chuy" is the slang word for "cool" or "nice" and etc.
English - "The movie is so cool!"
Bisaya - "Chuy kaayo ang salida (sine) bai!"
