Instead, I have been trying to persuade them to give me some stool samples for fecal occult blood testing that we are doing tomorrow as part of my Medical Assisting Curriculum.
I've discovered that a good way for me to entice VC to permit me to check his blood pressure more often (for practice) - is to threaten him with a fecal sample kit ;-)
Two weeks to go until finals and then my clinical. I'm a little skeered about the second part. Hopefully I won't appear to be a complete imbecile once I am practicing in real life :-O) Today I took a little "creative licensing" in doing some wound bandaging by pretending to have a smaller wound. My prof jumped in to alert me that there is no "creativity in bandaging." I have a feeling my art background will NOT be a huge asset in this endeavor *sigh*.
