Just when you think you have escaped being a patient, something happens with your body that reminds you that in a sense, you will always be a patient.
As I try to cross over to the other side of the medical world, it’s not without struggle that I’m doing so.
Disease, illnesses, random events, will always exist on this earth.
But the key is to not dwell in them.
Have your moment of suffering and grief, and continue to move forward.
Be strong and do what you need to do to live your life that you have always dreamt of.
Learn how to live despite the challenges you face: and for some, this may be chronic disease.
Just always remember you aren’t your disease.
You were created for a beautiful destiny.
Another reason why I love being a nurse is because of my flexible work schedule. At most hospitals a full time schedule for registered nurses consists of three 12 hour shifts a week. I can schedule myself to work at the beginning of the week and at the end of the following week which gives me almost a week of vacay/me-time! Yay! Having this flexibility allows me to do the things I love like exploring new cities, visiting my parents in Dallas, and blogging. Type ❤️ in the comments section if you appreciate nurses.
Your girl is officially DONE with all exams and clinicals for 2017! 💕 I can’t believe that my first clinical rotation was less than a year ago. I am always amazed at how much I didn’t even know that I didn’t know. What I love about nursing school is that everything I learn is somehow applicable in one way another- in the clinical setting, in my personal life, you name it!
What’s one thing you learned this year? 😊
Being a nurse means more than a piece of paper and 2 letters added to the end of your name. It means that the sacrifices you've made for the past 3 years have been acknowledged; are worth something. It means that the lack of sleep, the anxiety, the events with friends and special moments with family you've chosen to miss so you could study, the long days in the hospital during stage trying to prove yourself after countless mistakes and failures, the ones that make you question whether you're really cut out for this profession ...it means that all of that paid off.
It may seem strange, maybe privileged, that I'm receiving this title at the age of 20. But not one ounce of me didn't go into it. The very first week I began this journey, I knew what it would take to reach this point: all of me.
School doesn't teach you how to hold in your tears when your patient latches onto your hand and cries to you that they're "ready to go" because they've lost all of their strength, emotionally and physically. It doesn't teach you how to stand up to stubborn doctors who don't see the patient's point of view but aren't there in the middle of the night when the patient confesses to you how they really feel when no family or staff is around. No textbook can prepare you for the "human-ness" of being a nurse. But it equipped me with the tools to be able to embrace that part of my profession completely.
To me, RN stands for more than "registered nurse". Together, we are forever learning, empowering, and growing as a unit. And I am so grateful to have the opportunity to begin this journey so young. So I'm proud to call myself a nurse, with everything that I am. Let's start this new chapter 👩🏼⚕️
No GN orientation would be complete without a Computer Training Day... meaning... charting day! Till this day I'm still learning where to go when I need to add something or need something. Charting may be the most time consuming part of our job, but it is the most essential. "If it wasn't charted, it wasn't done" 8|25-26 | 17
