When I saw this quote I knew I had to share it. Especially after the things I’ve encountered and seen. Being in the medical field is not for everyone, and I truly wish that anyone who is wanting to go into this field that you truly in your heart want to make a difference, and for those already in the field, that you go into each day knowing that yes it’s going to be tough some days but that you remember WHY you wanted to do this. And if you can’t give each patient the love and care they need, no matter what kind of day your having, that’s it’s ok to say that maybe this isn’t for you anymore. It’s hard for me personally to see someone not want to do their job in this field. I understand we get busy, short staffed or maybe our day was crazy before we even came to work. But that is part of what we signed up for. I hope we all in the medical, nursing or any field for that matter that deals with peoples lives, that we try our very best in the midst of the craziness to give excellence. That can be any of us at any time being a patient, and I know what kind of care we would expect. So let’s give what we would expect to get. 💕
Day Shifter / Night Shifter - but we both cute AF!!! Not only are we in the same program and clinical group but now we also get to work together for the same hospital system (Float Pool). Only difference is the shift. I prefer the dark side 🏥🌛 #futurenurses#studentnurse#cna#lvn#lpn#rn#np#cohort2019
Happy Saturday! Working day shifts this weekend at my other PRN RN job as a float, which I've been there for 3 years now. I am not used to working days because I have always been used to evenings and nights over the past years. Days are busy with many things going on and people going in and out of the patients' rooms as well as discharges, but there are is a lot of help during the day. Evenings are busy too, but expect admits to come during the evenings. The admission process can be lengthy depending on complexity of the patient. You, as a nurse, have to juggle with passing meds and doing treatments on time too. Learning how to prioritize your day to day responsibilities as a floor nurse is very important, which takes time and experience. Nights are nice and calm (sometimes), but when there is a full moon, expect to be running around. During my first year as a new grad nurse, I remembered how I struggled with time management. However, over the years, I have improved a lot! For those new nurses out there, remember to stay confident and never give up! 💊💉🏥 #rn#nursingschool#nursing#lpn#cna#bsn#nursingstudent#nurse#md#doctor#medschool#medstudent#medicine#physician#newgradnurse#healthcare#stayconfident
In 2019 we coming for it ALL!
Congrats @xtremelifewithtanesha on the release of your new book “Fearfully & Wonderfully Made”..... to see what you manifested (while kicking my butt in the gym) become reality is AMAZING! 👑💛
Y’all head to her page & click link in bio to grab yours.
All these #10yearchallenge posts I’ve been seeing really shows how quickly a decade can go by. And how much change can happen in such a short amount of time.
At the same time let’s think about what your next 10 will be like. What decisions do you make on a daily basis to shape ur next decade? .
I ordered a book that someone on here inspired me to read. I’m looking forward to starting it. I also ordered a new iPad case because something in my bag rubbed off on mine and stained it blue 😞 I just can't have a pink case with blue stains on it (kidding, but very serious...). Plus I ordered a new phone case because I don't like looking at the same one for too long. It helps to see something different and right now I need different.
I read some interesting things in my ATI Nutrition book. This is the first one I've used for class. I have a whole box of them. There's one for Fundamentals..maybe I'll check it out just for fun.
I tried to force myself today to read for my own knowledge and not just to pass the exam. It worked for a little. I'll try again tomorrow.
This photo has nothing to do with anything. I hope y'all have a good start to your semesters. And if you've been in class all month like me, I hope it's been going well 🔅

Pining for a new stethoscope? We've got you covered. #trueblue
☝🏼NURSING TIP THURSDAY☝🏼
The CPR lever is found underneath the top side rail (on both sides) of every pt’s bed. It’s meant for code blues because, if you pull the lever the entire bed will immediately go flat.. allowing you to start compressions as soon as possible
I didn’t know about this lever until I started on the job, so I figured it would be worth sharing for my followers who are in nursing school or just recently graduated!
