The latest in nursing school

We're learning how to interpret ECG's in school and today it all started to click for me and I'm loving it!!

"That squiggly line means A-fib and the patient needs coumadin and a cardioversion.
That squiggly line means a first degree heart block with no treatment necessary."

And as graduation nears I'm starting to give thought to my first nursing job and right now I'm leaning towards ER nurse. I love the thought of all the excitement and actually saving people's lives. I want to work in a major medical center, not a dinky local hospital that med flights off all the interesting patients. I'm thinking of applying in January as a tech. so that I can get experience before all the responsibility of the RN license. If I do end up pursuing that it will be an adorable "happily ever after" movie moment that day I walk in as an ER nurse because I spent about ten years of my life adoringly watching ER every Thursday (even making it a point to turn it on after giving birth to Brandon and Wolfie).
