smftwo- I don’t do well with conferences. I just can’t retain anything being talked at for 3 days! I am usually just so so interested and try very hard to get the most I can, but will just retain very little afterwards. Just too much information too quickly.. maybe it is the crowds of people and bustle.. maybe it is just that I get so excited that my brain overheats and dies. I get extremely excited in the company of brilliant nurses lol. the amazing amount and diversity of information that each and every person brings to the table puts me into this “i want all of this knowledge” trance. Then I only retain pieces . then, I just don’t get myself to take the amount of notes I should >_<.
I do a lot better paying for the lectures individually and watching them gradually on the internet. (oh wait that is the NP stuff). For the APNA stuff, I read the emails and follow the forum. I’m good with reading things by myself. However, i completely miss out on networking. Although, I tend to make a weird impression on people if I am excited.
I also get really overwhelmed with the details of traveling. I need someone else to break it up for me, and then I’ll do it.
I wonder if this could change for me being medicated?
