This week we looked at some model homes in our new city! And boy were we in for a shock when we realized we can’t afford to live..anywhere! haha. I’ll go on one of my usual tangents about that, and talk about how I’m coming to realize what’s really important in our life. This week also brought my first independent afternoon in the clinic! It was a good learning experience, but I definitely still need my training wheels before flying solo.
Pharmacology is one of the scariest classes in nursing and NP school due to the insane amount of information that we are expected to learn! In today’s video, I’ll share my study tips that I’ve learned from two rounds of pharmacology so that you will hopefully have an easier time than I did! This video offers tips for nursing students, nurse practitioner students, and CNS students as I used similar methods for advanced pharmacology and traditional pharmacology.

In this video I will take you through my favorite study methods, as well as offer some advice to mentally battle through this class, because I’m sure we all know, its no joke! Best of luck this semester everyone! Remember, you CAN do this! One day at a time.
New jobs come with a TON of new information. In this video I will show you how I am organizing all the new information I am encountering as a Family Nurse Practitioner, so I can easily reference it later and have it around as long as need be! This method of organization would work for any type of career, academic journey, or just as way to organize reminders for you life! I am honestly quite upset I didn’t think of this until now. I could have saved so much time in NP school not looking things up twice! Ugh! Oh well.
This week was also a bit of a hot mess. While I am getting more organized at work, I’m falling apart at home. Check out the video to feel like you’ve got your life together!
I love pediatric nursing. Kids have such resilience and bravery in the face of illness, and it was truly an honor to provide nursing care to them for so many years. While pediatric nursing is a ton of fun, think wagon rides, and bubbles, it also can be frightening, due to how different it is from other areas of nursing. This video will cover my tips and tricks for planning your day as a nurse, nursing student, or NP with pediatric patients. I’ll go over how to assess them, my trick for getting blood pressures on squirmy little legs, and how on earth you can get a 5 year old to take their lasix. Hopefully by the end of the video you will feel a bit more prepared to enter your clinical or new job in pediatrics, and love it just as much as I did!
