Trying to study after being on call is just 😴
Here’s what I used to study for STEP 1 for people that have been asking (though not pictured): 1. FirstAid
3. SketchyPharm and Micro
4. UWorld Question bank
5. NBME practice exams (took 4), UW Sim 1 and 2
6. @usmle_coach High yield notes
7. Goljan audio lectures for the car
8. 100 essential anatomy Anki deck (found on reddit)
Of course different people have different study habits and resources they’ll use, so keep that in mind. Hopefully when this surgery rotation is done, I’ll have more time to dive into how I used each resource.

The hardest part about studying for this exam is not knowing if I'm making progress. .
I've been studying for the USMLE Step 1 for about a month. I've had many bad days (non-study days, or days where I was unfocused or distracted) and some good ones too. Sometimes when I close my eyes, I see tables and questions floating around in front of my eyes, so I guess I've put the hours in. And while my UWorld percentages are improving, they're only doing so slightly... I'm told that that's not really a good way to track progress. One thing I've noticed is interesting though: it's how my brain processes information. I's like I can now decipher the questions, and can somewhat predict what the question writers were trying to get us to think about when they added seemingly useless details or answer choices. This feeling gives me hope. .
I know I haven't been posting a lot, and it's because studying takes up a HUGE part of my day. The rest is gym, showering, eating and feeding the cats... so it leaves me very little time for other things. .
But I love sharing my day via stories -- what are some other things you'd like to see in my stories? How many stories do you like to see per day (few? many?)? Anything I should post more or less of? Feel free to comment your preferences below because I'd be happy to oblige! .
New on my blog: "How I USMLE" IG Live video is now uploaded for anyone who missed the live last week and wants to catch it! Feel free to check it out, and come join me for some live USMLE studying on YouTube (most days from morning to evening!) .

The most important step is the one you’re on 💡

💉For all of you Cath Lab peeps out there a bypass case can be very challenging. Sometimes surgeons are nice and leave us markers in the aorta to locate grafts, but many times it’s a fishing expedition! The best way to be successful in finding the bypass grafts is to take the following approach:
1️⃣ALWAYS read the surgical report and previous cath- make your life easy and know what you are looking for .
2️⃣Understand the anatomy- the picture above helped me understand how grafts are sewn on the aorta- and then actually scrubbing multiple bypass surgeries helped me even more! Remember the two most lateral grafts are: the SVG-RCA (right) and the SVG/radial- LCX/OM (Left ). The diagonal, LAD, and ramus grafts will always be in-between
3️⃣ Understand the views- Right sided grafts are best engaged in the LAO view and left sided grafts in the RAO view. LIMA in an AP view. Also after engaged take multiple views! .
4️⃣ use the right catheters- I prefer a JR to engage the grafts, but other options are the AL 1, RCB, LCB, MB2, MPA2, IMA, bartorelli .
5️⃣ Lastly, when assessing grafts, mention in the report about their take off from the aorta, the graft itself, it’s anastomotic site, and it’s distal runoff .
🎁Hope that helps- the ultimate best advice is just scrub as many cases (both caths and surgery) to really start to understand the anatomy and you’ll catch on really quick! .
Happy cathing! .

Warning: this is not a highlight reel post. This is me, keeping it 100% real with you. Social media is full of posts about how incredible it is to be a nurse. How we get to save lives, how we get to make a difference, how we get to connect with our patients, how rewarding it is. And it really is all those things. But there's this other stuff that people don't talk about as much. Stuff like burnout. Compassion fatigue. There are so many days I leave work and I feel the whole "this is my calling!" thing. Like I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing. But there are also some days I am so mentally and physically exhausted, I can hardly bear the thought of doing it all over again tomorrow. Days where I would rather do 10 loads of laundry, clean all the toilets, and do the dishes instead of having to spend 12 hours in the emergency department. I know I have a lot of followers who are in the medical field, and I want you to know — if you are feeling these things, you are so not alone, friend. The work is hard and it's okay to be tired. Take care of yourself. Take time off. Rest. Reset. And if you ever want to chat, I'm right here. ❤️ 💉#nursesinspirenurses

A few weeks ago we did an excercise at our staff meeting where we talked about generational differences and specifically how these differences can apply to our patients. In the healthcare field we have the opportunity to interact with a variety of patients from different ages and stages of life. It’s interesting and helpful to keep in mind generational differences as it can help us better understand and serve our patients. 🏥 👩⚕️ A few interesting points about different generations. Definitely variation within generations but just general observations:
Birth years: 1900-1945
Current ages: 74 and up
Major historical events: WWII, Korean War, Great Depression
Core values: Discipline, adherence to rules, compliant, patriotism, respect for authority
Birth years: 1946-1964
Current ages: 55-73
Major historical events: civil rights movement, Cold War, space travel, Vietnam war
Core values: Optimism, family centric, anti war and anti government, spend now worry later, equal rights
Birth years: 1965-1980
Current ages: 39-54
Major historical events: water gate, dual income families, single parent families, women in the work force, higher divorce rates, energy crisis
Core values: independence, entrepreneurs, skeptic, self reliant, highly educated
Birth years: 1981-2000
Current ages: 19-38
Major historical events: Age of social media, 911, school shootings.
Core values: Avid consumers, tech savvy, confident, prefers digital over paper, want to work less for more pay.
What generations do you work with? Love what I do as I get to see folks from all generations- mostly concentrated in the “traditional” age.

Enjoying this 1 week family vacation ☀️
This is just the break I needed and it happened at the perfect time. My family actually planned this vacation a year in advanced when they found out I only get 1 week off during clinical year.
It’s been great to see all my sisters and just relax by the ocean 🌊
Rylan couldn’t take the week off since he JUST started residency but I definitely foresee many vacations in our future 💙

With the recent government cuts to grants, students have been relying more on #scholarships. Since scholarships have been a big part in helping me afford higher education, I currently work with my alma mater to increase the donations we receive for student awards. These are 3 tips for how I got scholarships:
1️⃣ APPLY FOR SMALLER AWARDS: Many of the $30K+ awards often involve nationwide searches, essays, and a lengthy, multi-step interview. The amount of time spent applying for 6x$5000 awards can often be less than the time spent preparing for these national scholarships and with a smaller competition pool. .
2️⃣ REUSE ESSAYS: The reason I find applying for multiple smaller awards easier is b/c many of the essay topics were similar or identical, you can submit one essay with tweaks to many scholarships. .
3️⃣ APPLY IN NICHE AREAS: There are many awards that are given out only if you choose to attend a specific school, if you’re from a particular region...etc. There was a $10K scholarship in my med school class given to someone who had a past nursing background- only 1 person qualified for it. Easy money! .
Do you have any questions for me about scholarships? What are your tips?

“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” - Brené Brown @brenebrown

A few of years ago, I lost quite a bit of weight. I was proud of myself and congratulated myself because it took a lot of work and discipline. Eating right, running, and putting in the work was key, then 2 years ago, I started graduate school. Since then I held on to a significant number of pounds and today at a health check at work, a number I haven’t seen in 4 years was written on paper. I felt like I was punched in the gut and right at that moment I knew I had to do something. It was not just the weight that hit me hard, it was also other numbers in there that pointed to heart health.
I can’t put the blame on anything other than the decisions I have made in the last few years. My lack of motivation and discipline were to blame. I understand the importance of not comparing oneself to others, but whenever I see people put in the work, remain focused and then get results, I get frustrated with myself. I know that I need to make room for better habits and replace the bad ones I developed.
So, today, I will make every effort to make better decisions and get myself back on that healthy track. Who’s with me?

Here are the top 7 myths about nursing! Find out why these myths aren’t true at www.SketchyNursing.blog

La lipectomia facial es el procedimiento quirúrgico en la cual se busca mejorar los rasgos faciales creando la ilusión óptica de tener la cara un poco más alargada y delgada, mejorando de esta manera el aspecto estético y la armonía facial. La lipectomia facial consiste en extraer las bolsas adiposas masticatorias de cada mejilla (entre 5 y 8 cc de tejido adiposo por cada bolsa) a través de pequeñas incisiones, realizadas en el lado interno de la boca. Se realiza a través de una incisión a 0.5 cm. del surco gingivolabial superior, a la altura del segundo premolar, extendiéndose 2 cm. posterior paralelo al sulcus. Luego, se incursiona con una tijera roma dirigiendo la punta hacia el ángulo témporo-mandibular; se dibulsionan las fibras del músculo buccinador y con una ligera presión en las mejillas aparece la Bola adiposa masticatoria rápidamente expuesta con una cápsula delgada, diferente a la de los lipomas y una coloración brillante. Algunas veces, un pequeño vaso debe ser coagulado. Cada cavidad es taponeada con una gasa seca que es removida al terminar la intervención. Siempre en todos los casos se requiere sutura. #cirugiabucal#cirugiaoral#oralsurgery#bichectomia edical #dental#dentalhygiene #doctor#meme#nyc#md#students#medschool#medicalschool#college#medstudent#implant#veneers#futuredentist#surgery#dentalstudent #dentalimplant #funny#surgery#odontologia

I’ve been spending my last couple of weeks doing fun things with my family but I have also been working on getting ready for #PASchool .
Getting ready by reviewing some content has been reducing my anxiety about starting school by making me feel more confident!
To be honest, I was nervous that I had forgotten about Anatomy and Physiology and well, most students say Anatomy is one of the hardest class in school. So I wanted to make sure I had all the content from undergrad fresh in mind.
This prep course from @pa_school_prep / @myparesource is amazing. If you’re starting PA school soon , this is a must!
I about to finish it and I am 100% glad that I’m doing it.
I’ve been working one module per day and making sure I understand the content. Each module could range 5-15 minutes, so they’re not long or tedious. Also, each module has a quiz at the end to test your knowledge!
Explanations are easy to follow and the best part is that you can listen to the videos anywhere, pause them or go back if you’re not sure about something.
Anyways, I know most people told me to relax and have fun, but feeling more confident before my very first day is very important for me.
What did you do to prep before school?
Or what are you planning to do when you get accepted? Comment below, I’d like to read you!
I knew my legs were feeling a little too good after 70 miles plus some biking last week. It hit me a little too hard today 😂 Time to foam roll and carb up 🥔🍞🥞😅
Conventional deadlifts 5x3 @ 235 lbs
Snatch grip deads 2x3 @ 195 lbs👈🏻lmfao my grip
Some weighted pullups
Barbell and dumbbell rows and lat pulldowns
I think I’ve always been a morning person; when I worked in finance I loved being the first at the office, getting so much done before everyone arrived for the day, which allowed me to be out of work in time for night classes. Now, if I don’t leave for school before 6am I’ll be in traffic forever so getting out early is a must! But I love it, I love having unlimited study area options when the campus is quiet, I love watching the sunrise, and I love being in the study mindset when class starts. I’m one of those girls that does my hair every morning NOT because I have my life together BUT because I’ve never felt less prepared then on that third day of dry shampoo!
