So I was booked on an ALS course, it’s one of the things missing from my repertoire. I’m trauma trained, ILS trained and so forth, but I’ve not got Critical Care or ALS. They’re the two things I’d really like to have got on my CV.
I got on the ALS course by dint of the fact that people ahead of me in the queue are doing Critical Care, and thus don’t have time to study for and do the ALS course. Unfortunately, I just lost my place to junior doctors. Now that Hospital at night’s running, the junior doctors have to do it. Which means that all the ‘nurse’ places have been taken by junior doctors.
While I see the point, I can’t help but be frustrated. I was complaining about it, and nervous about doing the ALS course, but now I can’t do it, well, *feh*.
