    Part Time Job

    Take a look at what you are spending each month and try to reduce the non-essentials. At 6 months into your first year of nursing, you need your days off/down time to rest and prepare for your next shift...you've got to try to have a good work-life balance. Good luck!

    Is this insubordination? How do I deal with this PSW?

    I love this. Thank you for using that euphemism...I will be using it!

    I don’t know what to say 😩😩😩

    I used to ask families how much they wanted to know...and then provide that information in a caring, compassionate way. It allowed them to have some control over an uncontrollable situation. Look up mindful listening...there's quite a bit on that topic. Practice the techniques because it can be hard to simply listen...we often want to jump in and say something(anything) when the family/patient just need us to hold the space for them. Kudos to you to looking to improve your practice...I'm sure you're doing fine and will continue to provide compassionate care!
