Blanket bath this patient please
Cover up, do not let freeze
Change the water half way through
Do not let soap go to goo

Aseptic technique was the next
I hope you’ve read the text

This may be so much fun

Exam and four assessments passed
What more could be asked?
Now we were ready to be
State Registered, you and me.
