Got shot 3 times today

Needle shots that is. First shot was for hepatitis, and the other 2 was venipuncture. We were in the lab today and 2 of my fellow classmates used me as a patient so that they can get graded. The hepatitis shot was done by a professional. Every student needed it. This medical assisting class is painful I tell ya.

You had me worried for a second.. but then before even reading this I figured the last place anybody would be after REALLY being shot 3 times (let alone 1) would be here... lol

Sounds like you had a good time being a Guinea Pig.

Hahahaha...that was my first thought too Andrew...before reading the post I thought, "well why in the heck aren't you in the hospital"??
Hey Dragon, how was the competition to get into the program?? When I was doing the nursing classes, there were only 225 spots available and over 1600 applicants, talk about pressure!!

Very funny Dragon.
I thought the same as Andrew. I couldn't believe that you actually took the time to post here after being shot! LOL :)

Sorry to worry everyone. That's why I posted in the water cooler so that everyone think it wasn't a serious situation. The program was fairly easy to get into. I went there to get some information and came out enrolled. I like the class so far. Unlike other colleges, they give you hands on experience which I like. There are only 2 males in the class and 17 females.

What about pre-req's? Is it a 2 year program? Sorry about all the questions, I'm just curious how your state requirements differ from mine.

I was hoping to start college in November for Phlebotomy. Unfortunately, the hurricane has taken away the college I had planned on attending.

How many sticks do you have to perform in nursing?

I had many "Hands-on" classes in forestry, but none as painful as yours Dragon!

Glad to hear it sounds like you are enjoying your classes :D

There is no pre reqs. The college provides training with an emphasis on teaching the specific job-related skills that employers look for when they make hiring decisions. It is an 8 month program. Once the program is up, there is an externship that the school has with some medical offices.

I am not sure. I got stick 3 more times today. I will keep track on how many times I get sticked. So far 5 not including the hepatitis shot because that was done professionally.
