What area of Nursing should I choose? Why I chose the ICU.

How do you decide on which discipline of Nursing is the one for you?

When do you know?

Should you know your decision before you start school? Should you know by the time you graduate from school??!!

How do you know? Does someone tell you?

Is there a checklist?! GRRRRR

OK, let’s be honest… when deciding our ‘direction’…we change our mind at least three times while in school (or maybe that was just me).

I chose the ICU right out of nursing school for many reasons. I thought I’d share three major things that motivated my decision, way back then (yes it’s been a couple years):

1. Did it ‘click’?
2. Would you consider that decision something fun?
3. Would you view the job as a responsibility, or an opportunity?

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.

Fake it til you make it?

Give the perception of confidence in a skill before you actually have that confidence?

To say, “I know what I’m doing”… [when you might not]…… yet.

I’m not referring to the actual skill itself, but your confidence in yourself to deliver the performance. Stepping on to ‘the stage’ is a frightening and potentially paralyzing act. You don’t want to finish before you get started.

‘The stage’… can simply be performing a skill in front of friends, family or colleagues. Or ‘the stage’ could be out in public… or *gasp* in front of a crowd. ‘The stage’ is any scenario or situation where you might feel just a tad uncomfortable!

Here are five things to think about when I recommend faking it till you make it:

1. Develop confidence
2. Perception is reality
3. You already do it
4. Establish a comfort level
5. Great coping mechanism

What do you think? Are you for or against the notion of ‘fake it til you make it’?

Friendships between Nurses is like no other

The relationship with your fellow Nurse BFF’s is like no other. It’s a very unique and strong bond… because… well … they GET you.

The laugh at your dark humor. They cry when you cry. The understand your language. The speak your ‘speak’ and talk your ‘talk’. And only your fellow Nurse BFF’s can understand this ‘special‘ kinship.

Here are 5 things to keep in mind when talking about Nurse friendships:

1. They relate to the struggle to get those credentials.
2. Can vent & decompress about your day without having to explain yourself.
3. Special sort of sharing..
4. Share the dark humor.
5. They know about your ‘no fly’ list.

*Bonus thought*
Ever notice how some will just GET you… but there are some that will NEVER get you.
