Nurse Teeny’s Favorite Things

When did it become December??? Not that I’m complaining …we’ve already had our first snowfall (before Thanksgiving, even!). So I’m definitely in a festive mood, what with the perpetually lit fireplace, balsam fir-scented candles, and Starbucks peppermint mochas at my beck and call… 🙂 Pandora is my new best friend while I’m studying – their …

Milestone Winner!

Congratulations to Melissa, who left this sage piece of advice for fellow nurses/nursing students: If I could go back, I would tell myself to breathe through the stress!

Confetti and Balloons

I’ve been so buried (or self-absorbed…pick your poison) that I failed to notice a major milestone in The Makings of a Nurse history…we reached 50,000 hits!!! Be on the lookout for a reflection post later this week and a celebratory contest featuring – you guessed it – my favorite nursing footwear. Gives me a reason …

A Retirement, of Sorts

12 hour shifts are no bed of roses for the ol’ footsies. And this week I’ve decided to hang up my Danskos, once and for all. When I first ventured into 12-hour days my last semester of nursing school, I knew my cheap-o Nurse Mates were not going to cut it. So Mom bought me …

Speechless (So To Speak)

When Nurse Teeny promises, Nurse Teeny delivers… My Crazy-Making Week: Part I Caveat: If I miss any details, forgive my trespasses.

Lifesaver

Nurse Teeny has two shiny new cards for her wallet and her resume… I spent the last two days being certified in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) and re-certified in BLS (Basic Life Support). The stress of anticipation was much worse than the class itself, although it was quite intense when we had to run …
