Pinning was last night and it was great. My hair looked awesome, super cute dress, rocked my heels and didn't fall. Lol it's the little things.

I was totally floored though, when it was announced that I was being presented with the Nurse of the Future award.

Nursing school has been such a crazy rollercoaster!

Congrats! Roller coaster indeed.

Need an OP for Saturday! It's been another week where the only nursing-related stuff I've learned is stuff that I really need to not share.

I can do it if you want..let me know.

I'm also 31! At one point when I was a kid, we upgraded to this newfangled thing called a "word processor." Mom held on to the record player for quite some time, though.

My parents still own their 8 track player...

WILTW: I will never, ever, ever take call for a whole week at a time. I'm exhausted. I'm slangry (like hangry but with sleep deprivation instead of hunger). My back is killing me. My feet are sore. The paycheck's gonna be rockin' it, but my body is suffering to the point of not being worth it. Nope, I'm sticking to my 1-2 16 hour call shifts per week from here on out.

And I was definitely not at my best to be providing patient care this morning after spending all afternoon, evening, and part of the wee hours of the night working to save the lives of those fine upstanding citizens in the gun and knife club.

Never again.

Well, made it through Friday the 13th with only one Code Brown, a LOL going all sweet on me in one moment to slapping me upside the head and yelling at me to "Move your muffins!" (still can't figure out what that meant), and watching a grown man cry in the hallway because he wanted to go home (that was tough).

WILTW:

* The correct DKA protocol (thanks Calivianya)

* Some NCLEX facts of the week (thanks Cracklingkracken)

* What "cisgendered" means

... And a whole bunch of other stuff I'm too tired to think about now.

I am thankful for awesome supportive employers.

My former employer is still making massive issues for me including stuff that could have massive implications for my new job. Fortunately my new employer has been absolutely brilliant and supportive and still wants me.

I love dementia work. its absolutely crazy but those moments when you really connect with a patient are profound and will stay with me forever

Crap and it just gets better. House sitting and went home to pick some stuff up to find a bloody trespass letter. I have been trespassed from my old place of work for two years for doing absolutely nothing (in the sense of making a scene, talking to my old boss, interacting with her in any way shape or form). I have been pursuing official channels to address the systemic issues affecting patient safety and worker safety but apparently instead of addressing those issues, its far more effective to go after the s**t stirrer aka me

It certainly reinforces I made the right decision to leave that toxic cesspool.

Bless you, seriously. Working with dementia patients is the most frustrating thing ever for me. You are an angel for enjoying it.

We actually do this at our hospital....you can always work here... ;)

Tempting! I'm so tired of the BS at my job.
