Real Viagra

Real viagra scram

Real viagra Hey! It’s the Monopoly Guy!

Real viagra Looks like somebody did not pass go and did not collect $200!

Real viagra It’s not enough that he’s yelling at a nurse, real viagra but he’s yelling at the “Prettiest Nurse on the Staff“.

Real viagra Little does he know that his upraised fist just earned him a “Chance” at some restraints. Real viagra He may think his hospital is “Park Place” but if that fist makes contact he may find himself getting a little Baltic Avenue Haldol.

Real viagra No comments regarding the “Community Chest”.

Real viagra This blog is rated “G”, real viagra you know!

Real viagra (I wonder if the Prettiest Nurse on the Staff gets a differential for that title?)



Real viagra I had a “what the hell am I doing?” moment today.

Real viagra My classes don’t start for another week, real viagra but all the information was up online as of yesterday. Real viagra I decided to get organized, real viagra print out all the calendars/syllabi and make my DayRunner/Binder all nice and efficient.

Real viagra Ten units. Real viagra Three different sites. Real viagra Three different usernames and three different passwords (four, real viagra if you count my new university email I have to use).

Real viagra I felt just a wee bit overwhelmed.

Real viagra I am a perfectionist and I don’t do “B”s.

Real viagra Oh hell, real viagra that’s a lie. Real viagra I got a ton of “B”s in nursing school. Real viagra But that was then, real viagra when I was young and didn’t care as long as I passed.

Real viagra I’ll be fine once it starts, real viagra I always am. Real viagra I figure it this way: (a) my nursing assessment class will be a breeze because I’ve been “assessing” for almost thirty years. Real viagra Unless they have come up with a new lung sound, real viagra I should be okay, real viagra (b) my statistics class will take the most time and (c) my writing class will be the most enjoyable.

Real viagra Then there is the National Novel Writing Month in November. Real viagra Fifty thousand words in thirty days. Real viagra I still have not gone back to last year’s book yet. Real viagra Last year I wrote about a young, real viagra enthusiastic male ER nurse. Real viagra Maybe this year I’ll write about a nurse from the old school forced to go back to work at the age of sixty. Real viagra By the time it is ever published, real viagra the average age of a registered nurse will be 92, real viagra so it won’t be that far fetched. Real viagra I’m actually taking the month of November off, real viagra so it is doable!

Real viagra I figured I’d lighten my mood with a bit o’ Calvin and Hobbes, real viagra although I hope my writing isn’t an “intimidating and impenetrable fog.” I have, real viagra however, real viagra read many research studies that can lay claim to that description.

Real viagra Maybe I’ll be famous as the nurse known for “readable research”. Real viagra What good is a bunch of mish-mash statistics?

Real viagra Well, real viagra I’ll be up to my neck in mish-mash statistics, real viagra so hopefully I’ll find out.

Real viagra Wish me luck.

    I wonder why Mr. Monopoly is so upset. Our pretty nurse should call the police and have him arrested if he hits her. Kim, you are going to do great in school. You’ll be the Prettiest Nurse on cyper-campus.

    Oh the good old days of school. I was pretty much as you describe except that I would start working on and completing everything so I could cruise through the semester. The only class that ever foiled me was statistics. I think I took that one 3 or 4 times.

    Now that I’m returning to school to obtain an RN, I’m trying to get in the school frame of mind. Heck I’m not scheduled to start the program until January 2008 but, I’ve already bought some light nurse education reading.

    It’s amazing how obsessive-compulsive one can become about grades (as well as really learning) when going back to school as an adult. For my BS it was straight A’s or bust: I didn’t have that attitude at first, but once I started getting them I didn’t want to mess up my record. Once in the PhD program I got a lot mellower — B’s are fine when it’s a terminal degree (I mean who really is going to look at your transcript?), and yet I still only got a few.

    As for statistics, you may not believe me, but it’s a lot more fun when you get into inferential statistics rather than descriptive–for one thing they don’t make you do a lot of actual math (why should you? the computer programs do that), for another you get to see both what statistics are good for, what the different tests do, and when you want to use them….but most importantly, they make sense of all that “mish-mash of statistics.” The cool thing then is that you can look at those now-incomprehensible tables and compare what they say with what the authors say in the text!

    As for the readability of nursing research, I’m actually pretty impressed with it (as well as a lot of the behavioral science lit). There usually are clear conclusions and recommendations (beyond the omnipresent “more studies are needed). You want to try and read something, try the humanities! (ducks to avoid anything chucked by English Lit majors).

    And since I teach in graduate school, in my defense I’d like to say, I detest academic style. Once when I was being pushed to obtain a PhD, a wise supervisor said: “Just tell them you don’t want to be able to communicate well with fewer and fewer people.” In my opinion, if education doesn’t provide us concrete problem solving skills to help us with today’s challenges, it’s worthless.

    You have me laughing with Mr. Monopoly man up there.
    Surely you will do great in school! I was an honor student in nursing school…once I started getting A grades I got addicted to them. Unfortunately…when I got to the nursing floor I felt well… really small, as if I knew nothing!
    It is getting better though!

    Not to rain on your parade, but did you by any chance check with bill Waterson about publishing his comic?
