Expert!!!! WOW!!!!

  1. 36 I am so flattered. My coworker from the education department at my work is working on her DNP, and in the course of her research project needs several "expert" ICU nurses do a performance assessment on for her study validation. She asked me if I would participate. She could have picked from 100+ ICU trained nurses in the medical center and she chose me (as one of 4)! I am SO THRILLED!!!!

    I would have put myself in the "proficient" category. To hear this from someone that actually knows what's what is such a compliment! Maybe I will put my "burnout" on the "backburner" for awhile (well, at least a week or so!)

    I know nobody out there really cares, but I wanted to be happy with somebody out there that **might** actually get what a big deal that is.

    YAY FOR ME!!!!!!

    congrats! It feels so good to be validated by someone instead of having the little things you forgot or didn't get to nitpicked on!

    Hold your head up and put a little swagger in your step!

    YAY! I hope to be right there with you someday. At this point I am close to competent. I think that is pretty good for a nurse only 10 months out of school.

    Sweet and wonderful for you! I just shadowed ER the other day.....let me tell you a little peer/superior/external validation does wonders for the motivation/ego/interest in keeping on keeping on! Way to go! Unsolicited affirmation is a true testament to your skills and abilities!

    expert is a word thrown around a lot these days, I don't think no one is an "expert" on anything, there are just some poeple who know more that others, but there is always room to know more- and to continue learning.
