Captioned: Janie’s comment today about nurses “eating their young” has been around since I started almost 25 years ago and it’s a sad thing we have in our profession. Here’s a meme I created that gets to the point. Share if you like.

And this…

Remembering your mentor

Captioned: This lady was in many of my MA classes, taught me the secret to blood draws using a butterfly needle. Last night she was on a road trip and was in a fatal accident. The Medical Field lost a wonderful woman but heaven gained one heck of a lady. R.I.P

We all know how important coffee is.

Captioned: I was just in Wawa (running late for work) buying large coffee & BC powder (night shift nurse essentials). The lady in front of me asked me if I was a nurse and when I said yes said, “then let me buy your stuff”. She then said that she appreciated all that nurses did for her dad, and that he had wonderful nurses. I hugged & thanked her and will proceed to have a wonderful, albeit I’m late NOC.

The funny and endearing moment she knew nursing was for her.

Captioned: Another post reminded me of a funny story from my childhood. In third grade our teacher had us each write down what we wanted to be when we grew up and why. Then we read them aloud in class and she collected them to put in our end of the year book. When she called my name I stood up and proudly said “When I grow up, I want to be a nurse so I can help hurt people!” The class erupted in laughter and then I realized how my sentence could be taken the wrong way and said “No, no, I mean so I can help people who ARE hurt. Or sick. I don’t want to HURT them.” I was so embarassed but can laugh now.My mom kept that book for years. I hope it is still in the attic today. But I am now an LPN and I will have my RN-BSN next year. Here is a pic on first day of clinical last term proudly wearing my doctor stethoscope to go help my “hurt people”

Helping when unasked. This is not an everyday thing.

Personal stories that make us ‘have stuff in our eyes’

heartwalk

Captioned: Started my medical career at the ripe age of 19. I was a Phlebotomist/Er Tech/Nurse Extern for 4 yrs until I finished my Bachelor of Nursing. I absolutely love my job. Regardless of the student loan S Everyone has a calling and my best friend and boyfriend walked the Heart Walk in WPB FL today after getting 7 stents and a cage in his IVC. I could not be more proud.
