Remain Calm

I made it through the first day of work with NO crying!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012


This week marks my one year nurse-aversary and the start of a new position! Just when I was finally getting comfortable and confident in my work... I've been deported from my personal comfort zone.
I was lucky that everyone got along at my last job and that everyone was NICE to each other. I'll remind you that, sadly, this isn't always the case in the world of nursing. Why do nurses eat their young? I don't know. Maybe it's because we're hungry from missing meal breaks. Maybe we're crabby because we haven't had time to pee and have been holding it for 10 hours... Maybe it's because being a nurse is extremely stressful. Whatever the reason, I pray to the patron saint of nurses that I'm able to maintain a blood pressure that is within defined limits and that, above all, I don't cry.
