Nursing school has introduced me to some of the most hard-working, inspiring, and motivational people I have ever met. If I could give you one piece of advice, it would be to be conscious of who your surround yourself with. The people that I became friends with the nursing school push me to do better, Work harder, and to believe in myself. I have them do a thing for where I am today.

These #nike#vapormax Shoes are so awesome for working out in! 👟👟👟 They definitely took some getting used to, because they literally feel like you’re walking on clouds ☁️🌩 and they give you some extra height, but they’re totally worth the price. 💵 I have never worn shoes that are more comfortable, honestly! The only downside is that the shoes kind of rub on my ankle, so I like to wear ankle socks to make sure that my skin isn’t affected. What are your favorite shoes to work out in? 🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️

I’ve been hitting the gym recently, 🏋🏼♂️ and I’m so happy to see the results. 😍 My back muscles are not my favorite group of muscles to work out 🙅🏼♂️, because I am so sore the next day and I feel like I have an achy back which is never fun😩. When I go to the gym I start off by using the rowing machine for about 15 minutes🚣🏼♀️. Then, i use a variety of machines that strain all different groups of my muscles; shoulders, middle back, and lower back. 🔥🔥🔥 I always try to mix in some core workouts into my work routine💥. To finish off, I like to use the pull-up bar to make sure all muscle groups in my back have been worked on for the day.

As powerful as insulin aspart is, I love using insulin injection needles for some reason. In nursing school, insulin used to stress me out because I knew how it could make a patient unstable if you give them the incorrect dosage, but I love working with the tiny needles and drying up the tiny amount. It makes me feel so impactful knowing that this medication is such a drastic effect on the outcome of the patient. Do you guys have any favorite medications to give patients?

LOL! This picture was taken from a headshot that was required of a nurse job application. I find it so weird that they ask you for a headshot for job applications, like Are you looking for sexy nurses or something? I’m sure that’s not the case but for whatever reason I made sure to get my picture done very professionally by one of my best friends who is literally a professional photographer. what are you guys think?
Hello TX Fam! My name is Fanny, the creator of TX Socks!
For those who don’t know, TX Compression Socks was created when I was a New Grad RN. I was on my feet for hours, which led to sore, swollen, and achy feet! I tried many brands of compression socks only to be let down with high prices and so-so quality 👎🏻. This sparked the idea of TX Compression Socks!
It still amazes me how much TX Socks has grown in a little over a year (we’re literally a team of 2 people). To my TX fam: from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for supporting us!

After working a long 12 hour shift I love coming home to amazing skin care products. These two @sisleyparisusa Products always have my skin looking completely snatch after a long day in the hospital. What are your guys favorite skin care products?

I’m such a germaphobe! Lol... every time I come onto a shift I make sure to wipe down all of the medication scanners, desktops, and computers with a purple white. Hospitals are crawling with bacteria and it’s super important to prevent the spread of infection by wiping down all services with purple wipes if you can. It’s in the best interest not only for your patience but for yourself as well. What are your guys hospital rituals?

🙅🏻♂️ Failure Doesn’t Mean You Failed 🙅🏻♂️
We’ve shown you the highlights from Sunday where we hit PR’s and it looked like everything went our way. What we didn’t show you is the lifts we didn’t hit. Our failed lifts aren’t just deleted and swept under the rug like they never happened. We look at them to learn what we need to focus on form wise and they motivate us to try to hit those weights EASILY next time around. These are stepping stones and learning opportunities 🤔 NOT disappointments 😢
JJ’s Learning Opportunities
📌 Feet collapsed on 425 lb squat attempt
📌 Inconsistency with arch and bar placement on chest on 235 lb bench attempt
📌 Knees locked out far before hips on 475 lb deadlift attempt
Marco’s Learning Opportunities
📌 Not a straight descent of squat
📌 Loss of tightness during pause on 255 lb bench attempt
📌 Losing confidence and chest falling forward on 405 lb deadlift attempt
Workout enthusiast during the day, Emergency Room registered nurse by evening 👨⚕️👨⚕️💪💪. I love being a critical care RN and being able to save lives 🏥🏥💉💉. I love having others come to me for reasonings and I also like asking questions so I can further develop my craft. I consider myself to be a great RN and I absorb information like a sponge.
Call me a geek, but it’s my calling and I’m really good at it. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when it’s hard and you get behind. That’s when you rely on your fellow nurses who can help you, remember we are all there for a common goal. If you see a fellow nurse struggling, give them a hand.

20분 밖에 안되는 짧은 중환자실 면회시간이 거의 끝날때쯤 환자의 어머니가 아들을 끌어안듯 두팔을 벌리며 뛰어 들어오셨다. 떨리는 손으로 간신히 격리가운을 팔에 넣었지만 마음이 급해서 다 입지 못하고 발을 동동 구르고 계셨다. 격리가운 입는것을 도와드렸고 보호자분은 “감사합니다”를 반복하시며 방으로 달려 들어가셨다. 얼굴을 쓰다듬고 연신 이름을 부르지만 아들은 오늘도 대답이 없다. 어머니는 아들에게 이런저런 이야기를 하며 웃다 울다를 반복하시며 대답없는 아들의 얼굴을 다시 쓰다듬었다. 저렇게 울기라도 했으면 소원이 없겠다며 크게 울고있는 환자를 부러운 표정으로 바라보다 고개를 떨구고 면회를 마치시던 그 어머니의 표정이 생각났다.
The ‘what ifs’ and ‘should haves’ can be difficult. Knowing you did the best thing you could do for your patient is the right thing. The next best thing is the wrong thing. But the worst thing you could do is nothing at all. Good thing you chose a profession to be that best thing💉💯 CTICU RN @ny.antonio#fitscrubs#dowhatyoulove

Taking a break from the usual relaxing travel pictures to bring you to my everyday. Maybe not this extreme everyday, but to show you my life isn't always beautiful trips, hiking, and puppy dogs. Those are just the things I NEED to do to cope with the moments like this one. .
People ask, "how do you not take this home with you?" The answer is... I don't know. Things that happened here you can't unsee, but I suppose I try to think more about the work family and the effort put into this situation.
Work Family: The people you see almost everyday, you don't always get along, but when the going gets tough, you come together. .
And that's exactly what happened. Going home knowing everyone communicated thoroughly, asked for advice on what we could do next, no matter if you were nurse, surgeon, Anesthesiologist, CRNA, scrub tech, attending, resident, new grad or experienced. No idea is stupid. Everyone is equal with one common goal... to literally save a life. Whether you are successful or not, you can honestly say you tried everything.
I'm going to miss this work family when I leave. The teamwork is hands down some of the best I've seen anywhere. But I'm ready to take a break from this scene and do small outpatient elective surgeries at my next travel nurse assignment. A change of pace to help heal my heart from seeing these tragedies... but I'll be back.
P.s shout out to the housekeeping staff that has to clean this up after.. I would quit.
