Phlebotomy and EKG are out of the way.

I passed phlebotomy and the EKG test. So I’m certified in both of those. I though the class was easy, but grueling it was just so many hours. I have 15 ceu from taking it. The class was three times a week, three hours at a time. Dang endless. but the course was pretty interesting, and now I can do a decent blood draw. one less thing I need to learn when I get into the nursing side of the house.

I’m number two on the nursing class list. I’m pretty sure I’ll get in. The class usually loses about seven or so people. Some of my A&P classmates never signed up for the class once they were accepted. that’s a mystery to me. Maybe they were young and confident. There’s always time when you’re twenty. I’m 48, and I’m looking forward to being a nurse.
I was walking through the Catholic cemetery this morning, and I noticed besides the usual military markers, and the nuns markers, there was one identified as an R.N. I think that’s pretty unusual. I don’t really see that in any cemetery I wander though.
I’m off to school. I have just one class the rest of this semester. That’s accounting. I had taken chemistry, but I was just not getting it. Maybe next time. I’ll take it again, if I don’t get into nursing this time. The accounting class was hard at the beginning, but has gotten a lot easier since I learned that everything is just the opposite of normal.

Take care, Beth
