Soooooo.... I'm giving my very first IM shots tomorrow at our local public health. I've done almost everything as a nursing student (giving IV meds, inserting IVs, administering subcutaneous injections, giving blood transfusion, inserting foley caths, change draining devices, remove suture lines and many many more) yet I have to deal my very first Intramuscular injection... on my very last semester. Just when I thought I'm going to graduate without any experience with administering IM injection, opportunity came knocking and I can't let this one walk away from me!
I'm actually really excited. I think I'm the biggest dork out there, I enjoy IV insertion and seeing surgical procedure (I've seen 2 C-section in 1 day and 4 carpal tunnel surgeries. I wish I've seen more!) I have yet to decide what nursing field I want to take on after I graduate. Like I mention in my last tag, I work really good under pressure... and I've been wanting to work at the ER (or Pediatrics..cuz I love kiddos) and eventually work at the ICU. I don't mind Medical Surgical Floor.
So yes, looking forward for tomorrow! I'll be at the Clinic from 5:00-7:00pm.
So,do you guys have anything that you've always want to try but never had a chance -OR- is still hoping that one day will be able to do so? :)
Stay pretty everyone! xoxo
