Scrubs Galore

Several months ago, I was contacted by the folks at Medical Discount Scrubs with a request to try out and review some of their items. I was invited to identify the scrub top and bottom of my choice, and soon afterward, received a box of goodies in the mail. At the time, I was still expecting …

Exploring My Options

So I quit my job. What’s next? First, I plan to exhale. I’ve felt so suffocated the past several months, and submitting my resignation was like a breath of fresh air. As scary as it was, I knew it was the right decision. Rather than feel constantly frustrated and discouraged, I’ve decided to write my own …

New Directions Indeed

I resigned from my job last week. It was a long time coming, really. If this summer was about learning to say “No,” this decision was about saying no to drama. Since I crashed and burned last fall, I like I have been in an emotional tug of war with my manager and clinical lead. …

Honeymoon. Over.

My first year back in acute care was anything but easy. However, I was so enamored with the fact that I could not only survive, but actually thrive, in such a challenging clinical setting, that I let many potential annoyances roll off my back. I felt like a new nurse again (in the best way …

2013: One Day at a Time

If 2012 was about big changes, 2013 was the year of buyer’s remorse. If you can have such a thing for life decisions. I started the year looking forward to the career opportunities ahead, anticipating more school, and feeling quite confident overall that I was headed in the right direction. I am ending the year …

Crash. Burn.

Well, Nurse Teeny went and did it again. I took on too much and I hit bottom. Hard. Meltdown -> migraine -> meltdown -> migraine. And so the cycle has continued for the past two weeks. Farewell, PTO. It was fun while it lasted. I’ve now realized why I get crazy looks from people whenever …

New Grad Novelties

December will mark my four-year anniversary as a registered nurse. I have no idea how that happened. In some ways I feel like quite a seasoned nurse overall – I’ve seen my share of practice settings, I’ve honed a lot of skills and I’m finding leadership opportunities at my workplace. On the other hand, there …
