Spring 2012 Semester

SO the Spring 2012 Semester has started! It just started and it already feels like I have been in it for months! The work load is A LOT, but I am managing! or at least trying! We already had 2 Clinical Rotations at Good Samaritan Hospital—- in the MATERNITY Department!

The first day we got to see an assessment done on a little new born baby boy :) It was amazing! I wish I was able to show you a picture of this boy’s hair! It was so unique looking! It was long and a golden/glowing like brown. We also listened and counted for his heart rate! Can you believe a baby’s average heart rate is 120-160 beats per minute?! Listening and counting for it was a little difficult, but we did it and got a number around 115bpm. We are already learning so much—- I cannot wait for the next few weeks!
