I got a taste of a nurse's life on 4BC for real yesterday. 12 hours of nothing but running. My new preceptor let me take care of everything on my own, which was good, but daaaamn. My patients were coming and going all day, pharmacy was screwing everything up, service was complaining, I was giving amio boluses and mag boluses... stat orders coming out of my ears. I managed two have time for two small cups of coffee and a frozen lunch. Otherwise, I was running all over the damn place.
Oh but it's good.
