I GOT THE SCHOLARSHIP!!

:dncgbby:

Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for all the positive feedback and genuine support. You guys are wonderful!

I really need to come around more often. I am so overwhelmed with school, work and some very stressful stuff in my personal life. I know exactly where burnout comes from. And I don't want it.

Thanks again for the boost. I needed it. And I promise to pay it forward.

Just finished seven nights in a row in the ER due to a scheduling glitch and wrapped it up with a four hour micro class this morning. Last night started out awful - I overslept for the first time since transferring to the ER and was more than an hour late for work. Had hoped to work as clerk or triage tech but was assigned to the regular tech job - which I love but which leaves little downtime and I really, really needed to finish my pathogen cards for class today. Plus I was totally worn out and when physical exhaustion sets in for me, I am at real risk of falling because of my stupid post-GBS foot drop.

:(

But then.....all of the ER nurses as well as the respiratory therapist on duty told me to sit down and study and to rest. It was a fairly slow night, and they answered the call lights, did the UAs and the blood draws and hemocults and vital signs and most everything else considered a tech job throughout the early morning hours. I tried to get up a few times because I felt like a total schmuck for not helping out as patients came in, but they lovingly, and firmly, told me they had my back and they were there for me.

Reason #81,277 that nurses have my deepest admiration and appreciation.

Have a great shift, everyone.

:)

NURSES Rock, ( and RT ect's )... This brings a tear to my eye and makes me proud to be a nurse!!!:nurse::redbeathe:nurse:

My job in the ER and my first round of nursing school clinicals have only strengthened my love for taking care of patients and increased my respect for the incredible dedication all of you show out there in the trenches. Please don't give up on what we do. No matter how bad the beaurocrats and beancounters treat us, making a difference in a human life is - and always will be - worthwhile. Beyond worthwhile.

If you don't believe me, just wait until you find yourself - or someone you love - laying between those siderails.

Thank you. Again. Because I know not a one of you is properly thanked on a regular basis like you should be.

Wow. Hard to believe it's been more than two years since I first wandered in here with my heart on my e-sleeve!

I am so proud to say that, long and strange as my trip has been since then, I have not given up the course. Or my belief that you are all still heroes.

One more semester + blood, sweat, tears + keeping the faith and remembering to stay humble = Me as RN. Aka hero in training.

Thank you so much for posting this.

I found nursing to be a thankless task, but sometimes the patients can't say thank you as they may be like you, paralysed, or they have had a stroke or they end up dying. Really taking good care of people is the hardest thing in the world, anyone can argue that point I don't care - it is laborious, heart wrenching, (I find dementia patients so sad to look after), & physically exhausting; you go home and cry some nights & worry about whether your patients are OK after you have left. I used to hate it when my patients would die without me not having said goodbye to them; that is hard.

How awful you went through this! You will definitely be a better nurse for it, though no-one would wish this on anyone.

T-minus two weeks and a stray day or two. Final semester evaluations and exams coming up.

Pass or fail, I wanted to drop by and say that I am more thankful for nurses and all you do than ever.

Please go to work today or tonight or tomorrow or whenever with a smile. On your face and in your heart.

You make such a difference.

:)
