I'm sure I'll think of more but here are a few
-Whether your Justin Beiber or homeless I will give you the same and best care possible.
-When a pt has unreal expectations of me being a handmaiden to them, I can address the issue if it becomes a problem without worrying I might get written up for causing a pt to go to another hospital (they only leave in my dreams anyway)
-Where I work nurses and doctors work collaboratively. Dr Smith soon becomes Jon when not in a pt room. As a new nurse the doctors take time to teach me.
-To call your self an RN you must graduate with a 4-year university degree and RPN/LPN have a 2-year diploma (these are the standards currently and can only speak 100% for Ontario). Canadian nurses are some of the best educated and trained, and are highly sought after by other countries.
-I work in an MD pt care team of social workers, spiritual health practitioners, RT's, OT's, PT's. pharmacists, doctors, nurses (RN's & RPN's; from the hospital and community). I also include food service workers, housekeeping, maintenance and security that all make my job better and contribute to a pt's quality of life. Oh, and the life saving ward clerk.
-I am generously compensated
-Nurses week is better then Christmas
I am proud to be a Canadian (nurse) where at least I know (health care) is free!!!!
