When new nurses ask how I stay so professional with the crazy families…
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 the docs or NPs won’t put in orders that I want or ask me to do something that I don’t think will be in the patient’s best interest…
Parting words to all my nurses whom I’ve precepted…
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:
When I feel like it’s finally time to resort to prayer to get myself through a shift…
How I would always walk in the door if I were a transport nurse…

Working with over-confident interns…
