The only thing getting me thru my shift today. Today’s a slow day for me and a short one too, only eight hours. After about a month, I will be off orientation next weekend and on my own. So far I can say that I love my job as a PCT far more than working at a long-term care facility.
I have already learned so much in the last month, not only about orthopedics, but drugs, catheters, hemovacs, etc. Its amazing what you can learn in a place that actually wants you to learn and succeed.
I took out my first catheter a few weeks ago and was ecstatic about it, far more than my patient. They told me that if I loved taking out catheters as much as I did right then, then I was in the right field. Some days I question if she’s right it others I feel like I am at home.
