15 days is how long it's been since I posted last. 15 during which time I've started back at uni and been thrown in at the deep end of the hospital (where I am a very very small fish). The hospital is madly crazy, yet it doesn't particularly bother me due to the two year of HCA work I've done there since starting uni.
We had a lecture three days ago in which the lecturer reminded us how important nurses were, and that if you were nice to them they would feed you when you helped them out/looked hungry/looked exhausted etc.
It must be a good sign that after I cannulated a patient last week one of the male staff nurses, who I've worked with as a HCA leant into me, and whispered sweetly into my ear 'carrot cake and tea round the back, help yourself'.
