I'm a NICU RT but I feel like so many of your posts apply to us as well. Thanks for the laughs.
Oh my gosh, yes! Our RTs are our brothers and sisters in arms. I love it when I can look across the bed to the RT and know exactly what she’s thinking (whether in an emergency or just that eye-roll “I can’t believe the resident/parent just said that” kind of way).
I love your blog!! I'm a new ICU nurse and it's such a relief to know every other nurse feels the same way as I do at some point!!
We’re all in this together! Thanks for the love!
I'm thinking about going into an accelerated nursing program. But I have an 8 month old baby and still need to work. Should I try to apply or wait until he's older? I'm afraid of not being able to handle the workload. Please help?! Thank you.
Hi there! Of course I’d love to say you can do anything you set your mind to! And of course to a certain extent that’s true. But there’s only so many hours in the day. Nursing is a demanding program but I had been impressed more than once by my classmates who were juggling full time jobs and kids and school. It can be done! You just have to decide if it’s something that you can do too.
In the end, I’m going to have to throw this one out there to the group since I didn’t do an accelerated program. Has anyone done an accelerated program? What do you think?
Any advice for our mom/nurse-to-be?
