Dagen startede med en mail fra en journalist fra DR Debatten hvori jeg blev spurgt om jeg ville medvirke i aftenens udsendelse😱 Så gik der nogle timer, og jeg blev kontaktet igen, og de ville ikke bruge mig alligevel. Så jeg brugte i stedet tiden sammen med ham den dejlige lille fyr på billederne og hans mor ❤️ Helt fantastisk at have tid til at hygge og bare være sammen med de to, selvom jeg SÅ gerne ville have ytret mig i Debatten. Men Grete C (formand for @sygeplejeraadet) klarede den så godt💪🏼🍀❤️

My professor in Microbiology sent us the readings for the first week of class 🙃 I started reading and taking notes but my body and mind is still on winter break mode that I can’t seem to focus 😅 Whenever I need to focus on my work I usually isolate myself from everything and take an hour or two hours doing work and reward myself with a 30mins break (i check my phone, grab a snack, step away from my laptop screen). This helps myself stay on track on what I have to do and not overwork my brain ☺️ How do you stay focus? Let me know! ☺️

#tbt to being healthy & at the hospital serving the ones in need.
I became a nurse to help make others feel better, and for some reason I had this unrealistic expectation that I’m resilient to anything that comes my way or happens in my life. That I can keep running in the marathon of life without stopping to get a sip of water!
In the last 5 years I have been dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety. A lot of it has to do with situations that my in-laws put me in and me not knowing how to handle difficult and narcissistic behavior of the people who were kinda related to me.
I have also been taking on more as a nurse as I became more of an experienced nurse. So all the life & work stress, too many jobs & volunteer commitments (you name it, I’m a part of it) are taking a tole on my body & my mind.
I always thought, “oh I have a day off, how can I be productive & do something that matters TO HELP OTHERS”. I would plan to be a part of something bigger on my days off (like volunteer for charities & organizations that matter to me), or to help a friend out with their project.
And now I’m realizing that not taking a single minute to myself has added up to me being sick more than ever & I am sad and angry that I allowed this to happen.
It’s as if I didn’t see myself in this world & the only thing that made me happy is to help others & be there for others. I clearly have a lot to learn about myself & life. And I am determined to make my life better.
I know it’s in MY hands to change MY behavior & way of life. I am determined to get rid of anyone who doesn’t serve me well, read a lot of great books, & focus on self growth to cure this disease of “others before me” within myself so that I am healthier & better for myself, my friends, family, patients & their families. And I can take care of them better & for a longer period of time. And so I can ultimately help others who are like me.
I have had an interesting week, from a cop pulling me over because I’m “out of state” and in a small county (which FYI...the county is not small but I played along). Then, days later and different area, I was seeing a patient and had the cops show up thinking I was a fugitive?? And my ❤️ is now 8months. 🤷♀️ #itsmyfriday#interesting#life#8monthsold#mybaby#slowdown#nurselife#neverbored
Ok I will confirm to social norms and write a soppy status... today I completed my final shift as a student nurse in purple scrubs. I have been working towards this for the last TEN years!! After years of college, working and university I have finally finished my degree in adult nursing and in a few weeks I will be in blue scrubs starting my new post as a neurosurgery nurse.
I won’t lie, the last 2.5 years in particular have been a nightmare and I have wanted to quit countless times.
So I would just like to thank all those that told me to grow up and get on with it!
Ten years ago I never could have imagined being where I am today and I am unbelievably happy with what I have achieved! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #nursing#qualifiednurse#nursingschool#purplescrubs#nurselife#neurosurgery#cardiffuni#studentnurse
This is why i say to take progress pictures(no, not for Instagram) but to see your own progress 😭 I didn’t feel like I have had much progress lately but when I look at 2013 me, there are huge changes. Day to day we look in the mirror and examine every inch of our body, criticizing the fat we carry, the cellulite that lives on our legs and booty, etc but pictures allow you to truly see the changes you’ve worked so hard for! Don’t let your progress go unnoticed! This is 2013 me vs today (Jan 2019) and I am so proud of where I am. Not only because of the physical changes and the muscle I’ve gained (which I worked my ass off for), but for the mental changes. I am the HEALTHIEST me I’ve ever been and what an amazing feeling it is ✨ Blessed I am to have the life and health I do. Let’s all just take a minute to thank our bodies for all they do for us and have done for us, as well as all they’re capable of. Let’s see the beauty in our bodies rather than imperfections and learn to love the person and body looking back at us in the mirror.

2009: super shy and insecure kid, even my teachers would tell me they’d be surprised to hear me speak 🙊 didn’t have a lot of friends because I was too busy studying or working part-time
2019: still learning to love myself but much more comfortable in my own skin 🥰 enjoy adventuring by myself and sparking conversations. Love being a RN and have the most loving support system.
also I can see why I’ve heard rumors I’ve had a nose job or facial surgery done 😂 I haven’t #10yearchallenge
Late night study session. 🌸 Today I reviewed A&P of the nervous system, specifically neurons. Wow I really need to review some more A&P. 😂 Some of you wanted to know what I use Washi tape for so I made a mini time lapse video over the weekend. ❤️ I like to decorate my weekly planner sometimes, it’s a good stress reliever for me. 😂 Hope you all have a great and productive week. 👍🏽

One of the most nerve wrecking things to overcome working nightshift as a new grad was making late night phone calls to physicians.🙈
I used to dread having to wake up a physician for orders in the middle of the night. Calling an MD can be frustrating at night when they are off their sleep schedule. I remember feeling so anxious the first few times I had to make that call. My personal advice is when in doubt, make the call. I'd rather have a doctor mad at me for disturbing their sleep than to place a patient's health/life at risk. I've also learned that over time, most physicians develop trust in your nursing judgment. Be succinct! If you know what you want, then make a suggestion instead of beating around the bush at 3am. They will respect you for that.
Before making that late night phone call, always prepare yourself. First check with your charge nurse. Then do a thorough assessment on your patient, get recent set of vitals, look up relevant labs & diagnostics.
AND after you page a physician don’t disappear from the nursing station. Be readily available!
If you find it scary to make phone calls as a new grad, I hope these tips help you out. With time, you will become confident!☺️✨
What’s the hardest thing you had to overcome working nightshift?
