Nurses: What is your ideal coworker?

twitter_5cfa32c6aa

 

What are the coworker characteristics and habits that drive you over the edge? What behaviors and idiosyncrasies could you do without? [We all have them!]

What, or whom, would be your ideal coworker?

I already asked you about your dream job, what about your dream coworker?

I think most of us will answer this by saying, “My ideal coworker won’t do ___.” Because we all have that coworker that drives us batty with certain habits, tendencies or work-related pain points.

I can’t wait to here your thoughts on this one.

How do I deal with work fatigue as a new Nurse?

 “This job isn’t for everyone”

There is a reason why we say this. What we do is hard. It’s hard on the mind, hard on the heart and hard on the body.

Longevity and success in this profession is found when you can balance the hard.

Everyone balances their work life differently, and everyone has different challenges. The transition from student to a practicing Nurse is tough. It’s a shock to the system in every way imaginable.

Give yourself the time to rest, recover and rejuvenate… but don’t ignore your own health. Start small and budget your time wisely.

The physical part…. that’s easy. It’s the emotional recovery that can cripple you. Please don’t forget to refund your ‘running on empty’ emotional bank.

Seasoned Nurses out there, any suggestions, tips or tricks for the new Nurse who is battling work fatigue?

Work hard.. play hard..

Nurses are infamous for working hard. It’s what we do. We do it so well, we often volunteer for more work (can you say overtime?) Even though we should do just the opposite.

I’m a firm believer that nurse burn out, nurse job dissatisfaction and nurse’s leaving our profession have to do with not taking enough time for ourselves. We have to try playing just as hard as we work. And demanding that you don’t bring your job stress home.

Take time to smell the roses (yes, I know it’s cliche’) Find a lil’ “me” time in the chaos. Help your mind and your body reset before you tackle the hum of your job again and again.

Even if it’s only for a short time. A couple hours, or dedicating an entire day to you and yours. Make sure YOU matter in your life.

I’m married to a wonderful women who is also a nurse. We do our very best to make “we” time. Even if it’s just a simple leisure walk in the park. Breathing in the air, soaking up the sun and stretching our legs. It’s this time, where we reset. So that we have the strength to keep doing what we do.

Find your “me” time. You’ll be happier and healthier for it.
