I'm not "ooey gooey" (that's for my cookies and snacks, lol
) nor "warm and fuzzy"...I'm more...ticklish...and one of my nicknames from a previous job was "lieutenant" out of how I am as a nurse. I also have the nickname as "the warden"...these are all in a good way. I'm systematic, don't do drama; if I want that, I'll go watch General Hospital
, and I like empowering staff, pts and families, and do a good job of maintaing boundaries. I like to meditate...I'm probably a smashup of colors on a purple canvas
I've worked with new newborns to 100+...and always found a place to practice as a nurse holistically. My niche at this point of my career is Peds and Critical Care.
There is a place for everyone...Deep down inside, I am still the tomboy from a military family who probably missed their calling as a Air Force sergeant...but took those talents to my passion-nursing...and it's a wonderful fit for me
And if you feel as if this is what you want to do, Nursing will fit for YOU (noticed I did not say it another way around, if you know what I mean...
