OH, You’re not a REAL Nurse

OH, You’re not a REAL Nurse

A sensitive and real issue in the profession of Nursing. “If you don’t work at the bedside, you’re not a real Nurse”.

Grr.

Somehow this urban legend keeps resurfacing every so often.

Grr.

(Did I say Grr?!)

Just because a Nurse works in the non-clinical setting does not make them any less of a Nurse than the next.

Those two initials at the end of their name? Yeah, they earned them just like the Nurse working in the clinical setting.

Grr.

It’s time we start supporting one another, and stop breaking each other down. Speak up and defend each other when you hear this. Staying silent gives them permission.

I’m afraid of blood. Can I become a Nurse?

I’m afraid of blood. Can I become a Nurse?

What if you are afraid of the bodily fluids or other aspects of the job of a Nurse? Could you still become a Nurse?

I believe you can. I speak from personal experience.

In my pre-Nursing life I had a genuine vasovagal response to everything about vomit and dry-heaving. Yet here I am a Nurse Practitioner going into my 12th year as a Nurse. A former Trauma certified bedside Nurse and now Nurse Practitioner working in a Trauma ICU.

It can be done. You can overcome this fear or ‘freak out’ of bodily fluid.

Remember, not every Nurse works at the bedside. You can work as a Nurse and not be exposed to those “fluids” (or at least minimize the exposure).

Do you know anyone that overcame this type of fear? How did they do it?!

Have you ever had an argument with a drunk?

Have you ever had an argument with a drunk?

Lateral violence and bullying are not going away anytime soon.

One of the ways we can learn to win this battle is to not partake in the fight at all. Being the bigger person is not easy, but it is very effective.

Have you ever had an argument with a drunk?

How effective was that fight??

I offer some simple advice that just might change the culture. I am by no means saying we don’t stick up for ourselves and speak up. I just think trying to fight a bully at work is akin to negotiating with a drunk at the bar.

It really doesn’t matte what you say or do.. they’re not going to listen to you. The best way to win the fight with a drunk… don’t give them the recognition (attention) that they’re looking for.

Know whatta mean?
