Today is my "nurse"-aversary! I can't believe 2 years ago today I became a registered nurse. I have had so many life changing experiences in this profession. This profession has truly made me a better person. I have touched lives but lives have also touched me. I am beyond blessed to extend a healing hand to the patients I come in contact with. Although my profession is not an easy one, I have never once regretted the day that I decided to become a nurse. In this short journey of mine I have already got to accomplish so much and I can't wait to see where the rest of my journey takes me. #nurselife#nursesrock#icunurse#cvicu
The last time I wore regalia was May 2012 when I graduated from UVA with my doctorate. 💙💙Today I wore regalia and walked alongside EXTRAordinary faculty and administrators as we celebrated Strayers 125th commencement exercises and the inaugural graduation of our RN to BSN program!! The keynote speech by Chales Mann was phenomenal and the valedictorian address was PERFECT!! Wow!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾What a ride it has been to get HERE and EARN this celebratory experience! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🎉🎉🎉🎊🎊🎊🎊 I'm honored to have taught, coached and mentored the next generation of nursing leaders as well as support and inspire them to accomplish their goals! TODAY I celebrate THEM and cheer them onward and upward (to their MSN😆)! #gonurses#nurses#nursesrock#education#professor#doctorate#doctor#harrington#goaldigger
Here's to all the babes who work tirelessly for the NHS! I left the nurses a little goodie bag to say thank you for looking after Dan! I was really happy to see Katie had put it on her uniform! 💕 Thank you NHS workers! You are all heroes!
Now I need to send one to Dans surgeon who is a total bad ass babe! Think I'll wait for the patches to come and she put it on her scrubs 😂

Do you have those late night cravings?
Do you crave sweets, salty foods, fried foods
Do you know those cravings mean you are deprived of an essential nutrient your body needs, in disguising itself on all the unhealthy options
Here is a little cheat to use to replace those cravings for something more nutritious ❤❤
Lena Gould is the founder and CEO of the Diversity CRNA Mentorship Program. Her mission is to empower and inform underserved populations about the field of Nurse Anesthesia. Lena Gould realized the importance of diversity in the field when she became a CRNA herself and went to work day in and out noticing that there was no one who "looked" like her. She would go to work and most of the time be the only African American women working. Her mission is to make the field very diverse with many different backgrounds working within it. If you are interested go to Diversitycrna.org You can attend events and workshops about the field of Nurse anesthesia to really deepen your knowledge about it. They are held annually in select states. I will be attending in the near future💜💃
A Room With a View!! My overnight hospital stay has lasted 8 days so far but 2 surgeries later and now I'm pretty much the bionic woman!! Been blessed with wonderful nurses, the best daughter @rachelfiisher and the best boyfriend/nurse @tommybanks1 ever!! Thank you all for taking such good care of me! Thank you Jordi, Kobe and Jordyn for the nice visits💕
First night shift done since I was prego with Jax! I forgot how tough it is for the 3am-4am hour to keep my eyes open!! Another day, another dollar, another ton of calories burned by running up and down the halls.. strength training done from pulling and pushing and lifting 😜#nursesrock just saying 😘
As half of my sweet family slept (my boy was up cause he is a early bird like mama!) I got up and got it done. Did I WANT to roll out of bed on a Saturday? Hell no! Do I feel super motivated at 6:30 on summer break. Ummm, absolutely not! Then why the heck do I do this?!? I do it for me and the rest of the people in this sleepy hotel room. People constantly tell me they want my dedication. When they say that I tell them they already have it they just haven't uncovered it yet. It's there I promise! You just have to FIND it! 😉 You have to have a BIG reason WHY you get up and make better choices every day. It can't be a pant size, or number on the scale. It needs to tug at your heart. It needs to be something you can't say no to! My WHY is my family. They deserve the best mama and wife they can get. When I'm not willing to fight for me, you can bet your ass I'll fight for them. They are my reason to be dedicated, and WHY I do what I do! ❤️
When you have your WHY figured out please reach out and share it with me! I would love to be your health coach and help you reach your personal goals. You can do what I've done! I'm not special and haven't done anything extraordinary. I'm just a basic mom who found a reason to change! I lost 70lbs and gained a new life on this journey. Jacobs1504@gmail.com
This morning's workout was T25 Speed 1.0 but it's really speed 1,000.0 because I used a handy dandy movie app to speed up the final bonus round for your pure enjoyment! #yourwelcome#t25#hotelworkout#watchmego
