    Although I'm not understanding the point of this post, either... now all of the follow up posts leave me curious who this Jean Watson person is!

    I'll go check it out and get back to y'all.

    You owe me one keyboard and a cold glass of milk I laughed so hard I just spewed milk all over my laptop.

    We had a patient drink his own urine tonight.

    Actually, yoganurse, I love the whole holistically spiritual approach to nursing and we do need to be reminded of its tenets from time to time.

    Keep on keeping on!

    However, right now I'm more concerned with trying to keep an eye on this patient and prevent him from consuming his own excretions.
    My sides are aching from laughing at this!

    Therapeutic urine drinking is actually an Ayurvedic practice called "Shivambu Shastra," though I doubt the patient referenced above had that in mind...

    I have read the post three times......well.....actually I read the first two sentences three times and couldn't go any farther.
    You didn't miss much by skipping it, except for the time you'd never get back.

    I can't escape it! So in my class I made a post about my beloved Benner, bless her and her very grounded framework, and the response from my professor was to ask if it aligned better with the totality or simultaneity paradigm, and why. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?! Hahahaha!! I really do like my professor, but my brain is going to pop. Maybe I'll talk about energy and unitary beings and how in a parallel universe I could be an expert but in this one I am merely competent. Or I will fall back on my tried and true strategy: haiku.

    O Great Professor
    Can it not align with both?
    My paradigms blend.


    Send help, and caffeine. Thank you.

    I just posted my haiku in response to my professor. LOL. She'll either think I'm a complete weirdo or she'll love it.

    All I know is that we got a "caritas room" grant out of our embrace of the Caring model about 10 years ago. That grant bought our ER staff a massage chair and a little Zen fountain in a small quiet room.
    Did it come with a masseuse?

    I will say, however, "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" was HUGE back in the day. We were assigned it in English class back in the 80s, and not by some far-out hippie teacher, either--the most stuffy, buttoned down person I ever met either in school or out.
    It was a good book, though.

    I have to look up Jean Watson, now...
