This one time as a Nurse…

It’s story time. Let’s gather around the campfire and tell war stories.

GI bleeds….

Just like our military personnel, Nurses love to tell war stories. We love sharing our suffering, because we all can ‘relate’ in some way to the suffering scenario.

I’m here to set the record straight.

I’m the champion of GI bleeds. NOT that I want this title, but I have yet to meet someone with a better GI bleed story than mine. This was my first “real” GI bleed experience, way-back when I was a baby Nurse.

Have a seat, grab a snack and take a listen.

Learn from my mistakes folks, take notes.

After you hear this story… tell me you didn’t laugh.

Can someone dethrone me? Who has a better story? I’d love to hear it!

Check out my video below. Click the title, head on over to my Facebook page and leave me a comment.

Don’t forget to share the video! If ya like what ya see…. tell someone. Hell, tell someone if ya don’t like it.

As always, thanks for watching and thanks for sharing. I love hearing from everyone.

My Father. My Hero

Happy Father’s Day Dad

Happy Father’s Day Dad. I find the need to re-post this every year. This was an old blog post from years ago that was born out of an email I sent my father for Father’s Day years ago. I feel inclined to share it every year, since it speaks volumes about how lucky I was, and am to have this man as my Father.

THINGS MY FATHER TAUGHT ME:

  • How to pull his finger
  • How to appreciate everything I have or own
  • How to look something up in a dictionary
  • How to box
  • How to hit a baseball.. By practicing with a ping-pong ball.
  • How to fish
  • How to hunt…. And how not to scratch my cornea on a tree twig
  • How not to slide down the windshield of a car!
  • How to do backwards math
  • How to stick up for myself
  • How to have self-reliance
  • To be accountable for my actions
  • How NOT to play with a Rubik’s race.
  • How to moon your family on Christmas morning
  • To reap what I sow
  • How drinking alcohol is not all it’s cracked up to be… especially the morning after.
  • How to be independent
  • How to trust and be trust worthy
  • Learn the difference between what is good and what is right.
  • How to be humble.
  • How to never take anything or anyone for granted
  • What it means to be a friend
  • How to install a water heater
  • How to treat others
  • How to be yourself, not someone else
  • The difference between arrogance and courage.
  • How to never give up, and never quit
  • How to kill a raccoon in your attic with a compound bow.
  • How to feel safe
  • How to install a garbage disposal
  • How to change the oil in my car
  • How to install a car radio
  • How to properly install a new light switch
  • How to understand and appreciate your family lineage
  • How to appreciate where you came from

My father taught me that we all get one chance to make our mark on this world, and if there is anything worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

I am the man I am today because my father cared enough to teach me how to BE a man.

He taught me how to become a man and he still teaches me every time I see him or talk to him on how to be a better man.

Everything that is good in me, is a direct result from the man who calls himself my father.

Chance favors the prepared mind, and my father never wanted me to be ill prepared.

Thanks dad for being you.

I am proud to say you are my father, and I brag about being your son.

Nurses: What is your dream job?

twitter_61985a0a19

 

If you could have your dream job, what would it look like? Where would it be? How would it function? Who would it be with? What specialty? Geographical location? Shift?

Make a list and provide as much detail as possible.
Here are some hot topics that I’d address in my dream job:

1. Pay
2. Nurse:Patient ratios
3. Human resource details: holiday, CEU, leave, vacation, etc.
4. Geographic location
5. Patient population

Write down an itemized list of all the things that would make up your dream job.

…. Go ahead… I’ll wait…

Now… the real question is…. Are you working that job now? Why Not?

Why aren’t you working that job? How can you make it happen?

Start now and create a short-term and long-term plan. Set goals and meet them. We all deserve that dream job.

What would you add?
