My mother was in nursing school when I was very young. Some of my earliest memories are laying in bed while she studied with medical textbooks all over the place and her wearing some cheap scrubs during some of her practical tests. While I am most definitely not a medical person, I believe that this is why I manage to retain a lot of medical information easily. I had to get certified in CPR and First Aid and throughout the class I was wondering why we were learning such basic and easy information. I expected it to be more difficult for me. At least now I have the little certified cards saying I can properly take care of your wound!
