Nursing: Where Friday isn’t really Friday

Adobe Spark(3)

 

TGIF?

An acronym that literally has no meaning in the world of Nursing. It’s one of the first rules you should probably learn as Nurse.

Friday ≠ Friday

In fact the mere mention of TGIF invokes quite the response from most Nurses, because the majority of us work shifts, nights, weekends and holidays.

So…. you can shove your TGIF where the sun don’t shine.

Double tap if you feel the same way! 😂🙁 TAG another nurse working over the weekend!

I decided to create a celebratory acronym that makes a little more sense for all the Nurses out there:

The Nursing Academy Awards! Why not?

Even the most trusted profession in America can dream… right?

I mean is it such a far fetched idea? Instead of being awarded ‘The Oscar’…

[we’ll call it ‘The Pat’]

.. aptly named after the gender-neutral (sort of) Saturday Night Live skit-turned-movie “It’s Pat” (I’ll let you Google that one).

I mean Nurses already posses most (if not all) of the qualities needed to be an actor. Here are just a few of the characteristics (thank you Wikipedia):

1. Must portray a character (or someone else) ✔
2. Vocal projection ✔
3. Clarity of speech ✔
4. Emotional facility ✔
5. Physical expression ✔
6. Imagination ✔
7. Interpret drama ✔
8. Able to go in/out of character ✔
9. Employ dialects, accents and body language ✔
10. Improv, mime and stage combat ✔

I decided to have a little fun in honor of the Academy Awards. Remember, a good sense of humor is a must in our profession.

10 cold hard TRUTHS of Nursing everywhere

twitter_c812d505cf

 

I’ve learned quite a bit over the past decade as a Nurse (going on 11 years).

10 years. 10 TRUTHS.

There are certain things in our profession that ring true no matter where you plant your feet, no matter where you practice, no matter what type of Nurse you choose to become.

These TRUTHS I discovered working in different areas of the world, working in different specialty areas, different shifts, different employers and different stages of my career.

These 10 TRUTHS apply to every Nurse everywhere.

1. You get out what you put in.
2. You have to trust your team.
3. Trust (and respect) are earned, not given.
4. The schedule will always suck.
5. The best leaders are the best followers.
6. The best team gets their hands dirty.
7. It’s not the job, it’s the people.
8. Bullies? Kill them with kindness.
9. NEVER forget where you came from.
10. You are NEVER that good.

Care to add a TRUTH that can be applied to all of Nursing?
