“Every travel nurse gets ripped off on their first contract. There’s no way to know everything before you start, it’s all part of the experience.” __________________🤣Wait... what?

Because you have another option.

THE REALITY OF NIGHT SHIFT 😴🌜🌃
Your first night shift is fun & so exciting that you run off adrenaline the whole night. I promise that rush doesn’t return for every shift though 🙅🏼♀️
I’ve made many mistakes of turning up to a casual night shift with an hour or less of sleep - BIG NO! 🤦🏼♀️ You get to around 2am and can’t even function without downing another 1L of instant coffee 🤢
Be prepared for your night shifts.
💡Set time aside to sleep! - get at least 3 hours MIN. before and make time for at least 4 hours after
💡Find a meal that you can comfortably eat at any time of the day or night (my go to is warmed Oats 🥣)
💡Get yourself a specific routine (skincare, outfit, Shower etc.) that tells your body your either going into or coming out of night shift
💡 Minimize the use of your phone! The light can either make you very tired at 3am or very awake when you need to be sleeping (me right now 🤦🏼♀️😂)
I’m going to take my own advice and catch some 😴

80 more days. 2 months and 22 days. Seeing 2 months (ok basically 3) makes it so real. In 80 days I’ll have a life again, I’ll be able to have hobbies. Nursing school takes more of a toll on me than I think I’m aware but in those times I can’t help but remember why I do this. When I walk through the doors of the my patients rooms, everything is forgotten. Anything going on in the real world doesn’t exist to me. Instead my patients day is what I focus on. Maybe we joke about the weird tv show they’re watching, or maybe we have a heart to heart, but whatever it is. That’s why I do this. That’s why I push through the comparisons of test grades, the unnecessary work, the hours of clinical. I push through to be someone’s rock when they need it the most. I couldn’t be more excited to be a real nurse soon 💖

Ever hear the term “GCS less than 8, intubate”? Well that process of intubation is called rapid sequence intubation (RSI). We do it frequently in the resuscitation bay if the patient is to be intubated for further care and management. 💉
Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is an airway management technique that produces inducing immediate unresponsiveness (induction agent) and muscular relaxation (neuromuscular blocking agent) and is the fastest and most effective means of controlling the emergency airway. The cessation of spontaneous ventilation involves considerable risk if the provider does not intubate or ventilate the patient in a timely manner. RSI is particularly useful in the patient with an intact gag reflex, a “full” stomach, and a life threatening injury or illness requiring immediate airway control. 💉
The induction drugs traditionally used for RSI have short durations of action, wearing off after only minutes. Preparation for this procedure includes: continued physiological assessment, a patent IV access, preoxygenation, suction, pre-treatment(lidocaine/atropine), paralysis with induction (succinylcholine shown), hypnotics/sedatives. Remember it “sucks” to be paralyzed so sedate before paralysis. The nursing staff administers the medication, the medical staff performs the intubation, and the RT is responsible for initial ventilator set up.
Still going! Manifesto for an Inclusive Wellness Industry by @foodfreedombodylove #3
3// Define “health” and “wellness” for yourself.
These terms are social constructs that differ across communities and cultures. It’s also important to recognize that many people don’t have the privilege of prioritizing wellness, even if they want to. We can own our own investment and interest in health and wellness without projecting it onto others. Imagine how many hours a day/week could you free up if you let go of food, body control, and worry.
The shift: Consider what aspects of health and wellness actually light you up. Can you think of moments when you’ve judged the health and wellness choices of others? Begin to think about how our narrowly drawn ideas about these concepts impact the overall health of our society.
Are you guys feeling this one?
I am! 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️

- Introducing the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 2019 Nurse Hero!! Jessica will be honored on the court during the pregame ceremony at Nurse Night on March 2nd + receive personalized @jaanuubydrneela
scrubs and exclusive access to the court side lounge with all open bar and unlimited food! Congrats Jessica 🎉 .
Described as “a fearless leader across the healthcare spectrum,” Jessica started her career as a state tested nurse aide while attending Sharon Regional School of Nursing. Tragically, she lost both of her parents by age 25 and took on the responsibility of raising her younger twin brothers. With the passing of her mother shortly after she graduated nursing school, Jessica did not pass the NCLEX the first time and she uses her experience of “failing” as a testimony for others.
She eventually did pass the NCLEX and started her nursing career as a telemetry float nurse. Since then Jessica returned to school and is currently a Mental Health Nurse Practitioner student at Walden University. She continues to work fulltime and her younger brothers are now married with their own families. Jessica has a passion for encouraging and uplifting fellow nurses. “She has no tolerance for bullying and I have witnessed her come to the defense of many,” notes her nominator. “I cannot begin to tell you of the countless nurses who still thank Jessica to this day for having their back on the unit. Jessica has been and continues to be a fearless nursing leader.” .
