Stupid CPR

Monday, January 25, 2010

Not that using CPR is stupid by any means.  I’m talking about the re-certification that I have to do every two years.  First there is a stupid online portion/test that I have to take.  Then I have to go and demonstrate my skills.  I just hate doing this.  Mostly because I feel slightly inadequate.  In all the time that I have been a nurse (2 and 1/2 years) I have NEVER had to utilize CPR.  You know how they say that if you don’t utilize a skill you will lose it?  Well, this is a perfect example.  I just feel stupid showing my less than stellar skills in front of other people who teach this all the time and therefore know it like the back of their hand.  Oh well.  I guess that tomorrow night at this time it will all be over (I have the skills portion test tomorrow).  Wish me luck.
