  • Finding Your Dreams and Visions

    Every year since 2009, I have been making myself motivational vision and dream boards, and it has gotten to a point where I would make them for my family as well. What started as a way for me to motivate and inspire myself turned out to help and inspire my family and my mother's clients in her salon too. I started to study nursing in 2009, ...

  • 'Don't Burn Your Bridges'

    We all have heard the saying, ''Don't burn your bridges.'' This saying is used often when resigning from your current job. But what does it really mean? It means not to do something in life that will potentially affect you in the future, such as wrong the same people or company that might one day decide or influence your future. Today I gave my ...
  • Planning a Nursing Career through the Long and Short Haul

    Determining to pursue a career in nursing may be the easiest decision you make in life. As you may have been told, nurses are in great demand! There are also many types and thresholds where an individual can “get their feet wet” while deciding which type of healthcare fits their basic needs. Do you need an immediate flow of revenue? It may be ...

  • One Nurse’s Journey

    It was fall of 2010; the Institute of Medicine released their recommendations for the future of nursing. One recommendation they made was to increase the ratio of BSN prepared nurses to 80% by 2020 to help meet the increased demands in nursing to care for the increasingly complex patients. By 2011, like many other facilities across the ...

  • What Nursing Means to Me

      May has nurse's week...so I decided to speak to some nurses about what nursing means to them. I spoke to nurses who are close to retirement and too young, hopeful bright eyed and bushy tailed nurses, fresh out of University. And boy there was a huge difference in opinions. Strange how the circumstances of your work, where you work, how ...

  • New Page in My Book

    So, after weeks of feeling uncertain, crying, screaming in fear and anger, feeling lost and in a very dark place, I had no other choice than to stop my studies. I never realized I was so lost and in danger of total collapse until it finally happened to me. After a year of emotional ups and downs, and not dealing with it all like I should have, it ...

  • Giving Advice

     It seems now I am a student nurse, people presume I am the font of all knowledge for any medical condition, ailment or general problem, regardless of whether I'm on duty or not. One time, I was lucky enough to have an afternoon to myself, without tests or tasks. I decided I would go out, have a long walk, get myself a book and settle down ...

  • Newfound Respect

    Okay let me start by saying; ''I have new found respect for Registered Sisters.'' I have started my first official block period at college, and okay I knew it wasn't going to be a walk in the park to do this Bridging Course, but I did not think it would be this overwhelming, either. I don't know if it is the fear of the unknown; or the fact that ...

  • What Makes a Student Nurse?

    Well to start off let me say this, nursing is not at all as it is portrayed in Grey's Anatomy. If you think you will look as fresh as a daisy at the end of a 12-hour shift and meet Mr. McDreamy, I have really bad news. That rarely, if ever happens at all, ladies and gents. Nursing has so many challenges that we have to face on a daily basis. ...

  • The Language of Nursing

    As a nurse, I’ve grown accustomed to asking the difficult questions.  It wasn’t always easy.  When I first began my career, I thought my well-honed social skills would be enough for me to connect with patients.  I thought my charming smile and eloquent style would be the perfect combination to induce patient compliance and ...
