YES! I was physcially and mentally E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D-!-!-!-!-!-!
However, it’s extremely sad to complete this placement (both Wyong and Gosford Hospital). For the past 11 weeks, I’ve learned SO much. The long commute time can physically and mentally impact me. But with the positive attitude, drive, charisma and moral support from my beloved, I've overcomed that. Thanks. Love you!
All I want to say that I am extremely glad that I've learned a lot from this experience. I thought I will hate my clinical placement coz I was basically stressed out by my lecturer. THANKS!!! But I was wrong. I TOTALLY LOVE CLINICAL! And would love to work as a clinical dietitian.
This is what I've told people:
"Yes, no doubt I am enjoying my placement compared to the entire previous one. Full of challenges and surprises everyday! I never know what kind of patient I will be talking to until I read thru their details from the medical notes for less than an hour and off I go! It can be a lil frightening at times. I get to educate some of the outpatients last two days which is quite interesting and challenging."
"It just feels so great being able to help all patients from different age groups especially the elderly. They actually listen to your advice. It feels darn great. And there was once a really old lady said this to me that I'll never ever forget - Thank you, 'doctor'. It was a huge adrenaline rush and I totally loved it."
Anyway, for those who are interested in the nursing quarters in Gosford Hospital, here you go!
My Room # 50 for ENTIRE 7 weeks EXCEPT weekends =P
HUHU! I managed to survive for the past 7 weeks right here. It is a little frightening when I first moved in. But I pretty much got used to it. Just like my bro and mum said, I am a DBKL (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur) which means I can sleep everywhere like a garbage! HOW MEAN!!!! But anyway, if I can survivve there, I am pretty sure you can too.
Just ONE TINY WARNING: There is no cooking facilities. So, freeze your meal bitches!
I was so happy that I stayed for the last night at the quarters that I........................
