Nurses: The proper sequence of your credentials

What goes where, which is first and what do I include? Why?

Such an alphabet soup. Where do I start?

Just remember that your academic degree is always first. And you list your credentials chronologically, the most recent is closest to your name.

The proper order:

  • Highest earned degree (BSN, MSN, PhD, DNP, etc.)
  • Licensure (RN, CRNP, CRNA, etc)
  • State designations or requirements (APRN, CRNP, etc.)
  • National certifications (ACNP-BC, CCRN, CEN, etc.)
  • Awards and honors (…. EMT, PHRN, etc.)
  • Other recognitions (BLS, ACLS, etc.)

23 days post-op… over half way there

Post-op 23 days arthroscopic complex lateral meniscus repair.

I’ve been feeling good, my home rehab is going well. I do my own rehab therapy sessions at home at the very least once a day.

Then I go to the gym for a mini-workout and rehab therapy every other day. Along with aggressive cryotherapy to keep the swelling at bay.

Hardest part for me is making sure I don’t over do it. I want to do more and more. It’s why I set up appointments with my Physical Therapist.. he needs to keep me in check and tell me what NOT to do. (heh heh)

Taking it one day at a time.

What is your Nursing vice?

What is that ONE thing you just cannot stomach in our profession? What is that ONE thing you turf to a co-worker any chance you get?

We all have one. Don’t lie. You cannot love every single aspect of our job. There is some task that you have to ‘psych yourself’ up for.

Mine? Decubitus ulcers. The dressing changes for decubitus ulcers.
