Apparently there have been many students admitted into the Nursing Program that do not think they will ever touch patients. Really? So some genius at the college decided there needs to be an "Introduction to Nursing" class. I call it the, "So you want to be a nurse" class. We go once a week for 3 hours. Buehler? Buehler?

We talk about statistics. How much to nurses make, chain of command, marble floors and grand pianos in hospital lobbys. Did the patient get enough pudding and a pillow? Seriously. This is the first semester the class has been introduced and it is like watching paint dry.

After 15 years of hospital experience I can say, "YES. I know EXACTLY what I'm getting into. Let's get started." Unfortunately I am stuck there. For the next 8 weeks. Buehler? Buehler?
