How I Became A CNA And Why You Should Too

Hey y’all,

Long time no talk! It’s always something over at my house that is keeping me busy. But I’m finally sitting down to write a couple of posts.

Nursing school is a big decision. I didn’t know that I was called to be a nurse until half way through my senior year. I’d been looking at schools with more liberal arts focus, so deciding to go to a nursing school meant I had to look for new schools. It was a big deal for me. I’m sure if you are applying/going to nursing school you will understand this struggle. Continue reading

Get to Know Me

Hey y’all,

So I thought now would be a good time to share a little bit about myself.

I’m a 19 year old rising sophomore nursing student. I am a certified nursing assistant who works in people’s homes and I love it! I go to a college in Philadelphia, but I’m originally from NC. I’m a city girl with a country spirit. Like most people, I have a hard time being thankful for what I already have, so this blog is a way for me to share my joys, whatever they may be.

What makes my blood boil

Hi y’all,

So this story is blowing up all over the web and I really just had to share. As you will come to find out, I am a big supporter of patient autonomy (just means that patients have the right to choose care and the right to have all the facts.) More specifically, I am really fascinated by women’s health, natural birth, the whole kit and caboodle. If y’all are interested I’d love to share my knowledge on it all. This article is the perfect way to kick that off.  The more I read about this story the more upset I get. What are your thoughts?

WARNING! The stuff they talk about is super graphic and the video itself is traumatizing.

Why this doctor deserves to be sued:

1) THE PATIENT SAID NO! That reason in and of itself is enough. Patient’s have rights (as I’m learning in nursing school 🙂 A patient is allowed to refuse treatment no matter what. (even if it means their own life or death)

2) The doctor did not wait for the baby at all. He was there for maybe 5 minutes before he cut that woman.

3) She had specific instructions that she not only did not what an episiotomy but she also needed special care because she was a victim of sexual assault. She suffered a lot of emotional trauma and that doctor brought it back.

4) There was no reason for the episiotomy. The baby was 6lbs. Women, in their marvelous existence, have the power to push out babies that are 8lbs and bigger. They have the power to push out twins. The mother was so close to getting the baby out. She just needed some more time for her body to stretch. This woman was not given the chance to push her baby at and because of that she is now suffering immense pain. I feel for her and I hope that she has a swift recovery.

Please leave any questions and comments below. I love hearing from y’all. Don’t forget to follow me and like this post.

With love,

Daisy
