I just got back from Colorado. It was beautiful! It was a short business trip, courtesy of Family Heritage. We snuck away from the group with a few friends for half a day to visit Mt. Evans. It’s a 14,000 ft mountain that you can literally drive up. It’s a 30 minute drive from ground to top. It was 101 in Denver, and 50 degrees on the top of the mountain! It was amazing! Beautiful sights! Of course, I was doing pathophysiology and pharmacology during his meetings and any chance I got. We just returned home a few days ago and then I’m off to Maine in 2 days! Busy, busy.
Pathophysiology is nearly done… I’m just a few critical thinking questions away. Hallelujah!! I’ve never been so excited to move on to the next course I found a preceptor and hope to start this September for clinicals. I just have a few MAJOR, CRAZY goals to hit to make that happen! Pharmacology is underway, and health assessment will be started when I travel to Maine this week. I’m doing a workshop for suturing, I&Ds, x-ray interpretation, etc. I’m such a nerd… I’m more excited about a edu-vacation than I was when I went to Colorado without any forced learning I think it’s nice sometimes to just have a break away from work, other people having fun, and feeling like you’re letting your loved ones down because you’re buried in a book! In Maine… I won’t have to excuse myself for studying :) And what better place to celebrate with a few drinks for finishing pathophysiology?
I’m back on hiatus for another 2 weeks. Other students… feel free to let us know how your program is going & any helpful hints that you’ve found! When I’m back from Maine, I hope to share a lot of what I’ve learned in the skills workshop and health assessment!!
