Studying for the exam

Monday, January 12th, 2009

I am very excited to have another chapter in life in my nursing profession. I will be Training in Medical Intensive Care Unit this February whenever I pass their Qualifying Exam. I specialized in Maternal and Newborn Nursing. I care for pregnant women, doing prenatal, delivering babies, baby check-ups and postpartum check up. I can’t wait to be in the other area of Nursing. Right now, I am reviewing or studying for my up coming exam this January 16, 2009. Include in my prayers.

A new perspective

Friday, December 12th, 2008

I am delivering many babies in the past 9 years. I really loved it. But just lately, my passion changed. I want to work and help with sick people. I want to have a new experience in other areas of nursing. I missed working in the hospital. So I think it is time for me to take another step of faith. I am very excited at the same time, I am kind of nervous because I will be in a new environment and will be working with new people. It would be a huge adjustment for me. I know I will be fine and I can do it with God’s help. I already applied for the Nurse Training Program in a certain hospital. I will take the Qualifying exam next week. If I pass I will start the training this February 2009.

Baby your back

back-pain Most of us experiences back pains. It is not fun to have them. Delivering babies sometimes made my back hurts. So we need to baby our back and give them a break.
If you’re a working adult, the odds are fifty-fifty that you’ll suffer back trouble. To help you avoid this wrenching experience, the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine recommends the following back-saving strategies on the job:
• Alternate between sitting and standing. When sitting, rest your feet flat on the floor, and use a chair with good back support. When standing for prolonged periods, rest one foot on a low stool.
• As you lift heavy objects, hold them close to your chest; bend your knees, not your back; and reposition our entire body rather than twisting or reaching as you lift.
• Split heavy loads into smaller loads, and get help when an object is too heavy or awkward to lift by yourself.
• To help protect your back overnight – or whenever you lie down – use a firm mattress, and lie on your back or side, not on your stomach.
• When driving, adjust the seat to keep your knees level with your hips, sit up straight with both hands on the wheel, and use a lumbar support for your lower back. Keep vehicles in good repair to minimize vibration. Take frequent rest breaks to change position and stretch.
