My last semester at FEU starts…

November 29th, 2008 by Dianne Peña

For the long hiatus at blogging, here are my rationales… (LOL!)

It was November 3, 2008 when I started my last semester as a college student (awww…). You may have noticed that I haven’t blogged the things that I should have blogged about for the reason(s) that:

• November 3, 2008 was the start of my duty at Medical Center Parañaque. My shift was from 1 PM to 11 PM; imagine the long travel from Monumento (Caloocan City) to Parañaque… My clinical instructor really let us home at exactly 11 PM (whew!). I was assigned at the ICU and Hemodialysis room.

I also had our “last” general orientation in the morning. The subjects, rules and regulations were discussed to us. Our professors were also introduced to us. The dean leave us an inspiring message to strive hard with our Nursing Audit (In-House Review as others would call it) in which our battle cry is 3-5-90! (I better get reviewing…LOL!)

• November 6, 2008 was the start of my Nursing Leadership and Management lecture (NCM 104), in which our time is from 7 AM to 5PM with only one professor… (you guess how’s that…LOL!)

• November 8, I had my first Nursing Audit (NCM 105) review with Mr. Emerson Aliswag. Our concept was about Communicable Diseases. We only had two (2) meetings with him, it was short but I really learned A LOOOOOT! He’s one heck of a reviewer. No dull moments and his strategies were superbly effective. *applause*

• November 10, 2008 was the start of my second clinical rotation at Legarda Elementary School. I experienced being a school nurse (well, not really because of conflicting schedule). Instead, we were bombarded with paper works such as project proposals, daily action plan and accomplishment reports. Actually, its not hard to do those, what’s hard is that we have plenty of data gaps and we we’re bound to assume (the mortal sin of NURSING). Nevertheless, our clinical instructor Ms. Edina Jacob was cool and so it was compensated…LOL!

• November 24, 2008 was the start of my third clinical rotation at C&E Publishing in Baesa, Quezon City. It is on-going until next week so hopefully, I will experience to be an Occupational Health Nurse. We had a trip at their work place and the book process was discussed to us. We were given the chance to observe how the book is being done and our task is to be vigilant and keen as to the health hazards present in their work.

• In between those days, my group and I are busy doing our thesis about the Effectiveness of Stress Relief Balls in reducing the test anxiety among students in a selected school of nursing. Actually, we’re planning to do our pilot study next week so, Good Luck to us. Here’s our research pictures… LOL!

I am only at school for just three (3) weeks but it felt like I am on the half of my semester. I still can’t believe that I am on my senior year and this is my last semester. I am now anxious as to what will happen next. At times, I feel the pressure but then again, it must not hinder me, instead, do what ever it is to meet my goal and make my family proud.

P.S

My extra-curriculars are still not included in those reasons but one thing’s for sure; it didn’t allow me to blog for a long time. How I miss blogging! However, the great part is, I am busy but I can still attend to blogger events. LOL

To my batchmates… Luciat Vex Lustra! Let your light shine! 3-5-90!!!
