Part of my job is to be the night float intern on Friday nights. Basically for practically anything I get called. This past Friday was especially busy. But not with acute problems, mainly a lot of busy work. Checking up on labs, putting in IVs when the nurses could not, putting in a nasalgastric tube. Every time I went to lay down and get some rest, my beeper went off. I probably got a good 1 hour of decent sleep that night. But that is what I signed up for right. But the cool thing was that I was confident in my abilities. The only time I called my resident was to confirm my plan in a case that I was sure about but need to confirm my suspicions. It is just like they say, time and experience.
Still waiting on the COMLEX results. Less than 2.5 years to go before I make a descent salary. In the meantime, lets take advantage of any and all programs we qualify for.
