Flipping schedules because you work night shift…
When I see the charge nurse jaunting out of the unit while I’m drowning trying to get everything finished before the next shift comes in…
When I’m turning my 800g baby from prone to supine and they self-extubate
I always try to bring a little cheer to the unit when I’m charge nurse… that’s started to backfire now because every time I see someone the first thing out of their mouth is:
How I would always walk in the door if I were a transport nurse…
When I’ve been working with a family for months so that they don’t lose custody of their child and then they come back with a positive drug screen 2 days before discharge…

A better glimpse of what Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep photography services does. You’ll need some tissues for this one. 

amen. 

amen. 

Friendly reminder for all…

Friendly reminder for all…

I realized that being a nurse is incomparable: as we care for our patients, we learn how to cover our sorrow with a smile; we learn how to stay vigorous despite all the tasks we endure; we learn how to give hope even though our’s is unclearly seen; we learn how to give strength even at times that we are weak. Nobody would know what kind of life a nurse has unless they become one.
