The back yard was finally mowed yesterday after a two week growth spurt. It's in good enough shape to let the boys out into the back yard without worry of them getting lost in a jungle.
I also had the grandiose idea that I would be able to do an hour of homework every night after clinicals, but that didn't quite work out either. This weekend has been spent doing quizzes and the study guide for my first module test in Advanced Patient Care.
J and I are the only people in our class taking this third year class, and I dropped the ball on getting my portion of the test guide done on Friday. We are trying to knock out the course in about a month instead of the eight week summer semester.
The good news on taking this class is that the final exam can be substituted for passing the ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) examination. The ACLS is a must have for Interventional Radiology and Heart Cath jobs, which are some of the higher paying ones. We are going to take the class, at $235.00, and not worry about the final. Plus, it gives us an edge when applying for jobs over the other people in our class.
We've started working on our end game on employment against our classmates. The job market is tight here.
Enjoy your Sunday afternoon and keep right on prepping - K
