Weight Loss Surgery - Going for my personal trainer practical exam...

04-02-2014, 11:24 PM
tomorrow! I am so excited! I feel energized by going and getting this done. I have had it in the back of my head that this would be my next career and now I really feel that I could do it. I was trying to get into ICU at the hospital I work for and that fell through. I just couldn't pass the medications exam. I did it twice and failed both times. It is really a matter of not being able to remember all these medications that I have no experience with. In ICU they use a lot of very powerful meds and quite rightly need the nurses to know what they are doing with them. I think there is a big difference in memorizing enough to pass an exam and actually knowing what you are doing but I don't make up the rules. So it's okay. I feel a little like may be it not working out with the ICU job is the push I needed to do this personal trainer thing.
