Working the holiday?

Yes, working the holidays suck. But would you rather work the holiday… or be the patient?

Let’s try and remember how our patient’s holiday is going? Stop bitching. The holiday work is not going anywhere. Most of us work a job that is 24/7/365. We don’t get to ‘close up shop’ just because the calendar tells you it’s a recognized national holiday.

Maybe we could try and make our patient’s holiday a little brighter?

I want to thank every Nurse out there who has (or soon will) clock in during the Holiday (which is probably most Nurses in our profession).

And here’s to the next Holiday when we will all have to figure out who’s going to ‘cover the shift’.

I appreciate you taking one for the team and allowing the others to spend the day with their family.

The sacrifices we make are never-ending.

Nurses: How do you recover from a rough shift?

twitter_20bf2e8022

 

Working back to back shifts can be challenging, especially if the previous shift was exhausting. How do you recover from a rough shift to get back up and do it again?

The physical part is one thing. We all could use more sleep. But, how do you maintain your sanity seamlessly from one shift to the next? How do you reset your mind?

How do you cope? What sort of ‘self-talk’ do you have to gather yourself to rinse-and-repeat?

For me, I do three things:
1. Ask what was good?
2. Ask what was bad?
3. Ask how can I make it better the next time I show up?

Do you have any sage advice for the newer Nurses out there. What tips can you provide to help our fellow Nurses survive?

#TGIMFF | Nursing: Where Friday isn’t really Friday

#TGIMFF | Nursing: Where Friday isn’t really Friday

 

TGIF?

An acronym that literally has no meaning in the world of Nursing. It’s one of the first rules you should probably learn as Nurse.

Friday ≠ Friday

In fact the mere mention of TGIF invokes quite the response from most Nurses, because the majority of us work shifts, nights, weekends and holidays.

So…. you can shove your TGIF where the sun don’t shine.

Double tap if you feel the same way! 😂🙁 TAG another nurse working over the weekend!

A post shared by Nurse Inspired Media (@inspiredbynurses) on

 

I decided to create a celebratory acronym that makes a little more sense for all the Nurses out there:

TGIMFF

Thank God It’s My Fuckin Friday

To all my Nurses out there. If this is your Fuckin’ Friday… enjoy the hell out of it.

Do you agree?
