All Nurses have a sick sense of humor

Bright Red Automobile Presentation

Every Nurse uses dark humor at some point in their career. It’s how we deal with the ‘shit’ we encounter (quite literally).

The emotional roller coaster we endure on a daily basis is tough. It’s down right soul-crushing at times, and we are expected to just ‘shake it off’ and continue on with our painted smile.

The dark humor is a coping mechanism to help us manage our drained emotional bank. If making a wise-crack about something that most would consider tasteless… than so be it.

I would much rather have a Nurse use this dark humor and cope appropriately, then not deal with their feelings and bury it… only to have it re-surface as something even more sinister.

Not everyone can do this job.

How do you cope?’

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.)

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.
