Nurse of The Month: Tiffany Wurie

It’s that time of the month! I’m so excited about this month’s feature. This month’s feature is someone who is very near and dear to my heart; she’s someone I’ve known all my life. She’s also one of the many reasons why I decided to pursue a career in nursing. Her Story is one I’m truly happy to share. April’s Nurse of The Month is my cousin Tiffany Wurie.

“The road to success is not always a straight line”. Sometimes you just have to be determined.
After a rough start in college, Tiffany Wurie finally decided to pursue a career in Nursing. The first obstacle was grades that weren’t stellar. After many rejections, finally came an acceptance to an Associate Nursing Program where she graduated in 2011 and continued to complete a BSN in 2014, graduating Summa cum laude. Tiffany specializes in public health and has worked in several areas including pediatrics, trauma, hospice, and managed care. She has an immense love for people, for Nursing, and for learning and she is currently pursuing an MSN in Nursing Administration. She has a passion for health policy, removing barriers to health care and health disparities. She hopes to one day impact the way minorities especially view and receive health care.

Embracing Your Uniqueness

“I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump off” I feel like it’s been an eternity since I’ve had a new Blog post and I’m sure you guys feel the same way, but you know they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. It’s the start of a new month and I’m back like I never left.
I have a valid reason for my slight absence, ya girl got a new job (Praise Jesus!). I got a job at the children’s hospital working in the pediatric ICU as a clinical tech and I absolutely love it! It’s my first time working with kids and it has been amazing.

A Simple Encounter Can Change Your Perspective

Every now and then we may encounter someone or read something somewhere that serves as inspiration to us. Recently, while at work I had an encounter that gave me all the hope I needed. A patient of mine was having a really hard time that night. She’s a hospice patient and anyone in the medical field knows that a normal O2(oxygen level) sats ranges from 95 to 100. Well in this case my patient’s own was in the 50’s but given her condition that was considered normal. Anyways before I start treading in waters that will have me violating HIPPA let me get to the point.

Nurse of The Month: Charlene Lowery

I’ve decided that every month I would feature a Nurse that has impacted my life in some way. Nurses can have many different career paths as well as specialties, so I want to showcase those gifts. I am shining the light on someone I truly appreciate. Funny story I met Charlene a while back on Twitter simply because we were huge fans of Beyonce and that bond grew into something more than just being fans of the Queen B herself. She became someone I could confide in about my nursing journey struggles. Ever the supportive Queen that she is, Charlene took on the role of being my mentor and has since been guiding me along the way on pursuit to getting my nursing degree.Read More »

The Year 2017

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great holiday season. This was my first time having to work and not be able to spend time with my family cyah happen again lol (means: I have no intentions on doing this again). We are a few days away from a new year so thought I’d do a year in review post. In the first half of the year I had already deemed 2017 to be trash simply because it started off bittersweet and things weren’t going as planned but I had to shake that negativity off real quick.

Before I continue to tell you about how my 2017 was, I want to express my sincerest gratitude to you all. I can’t thank you all enough for rocking with me these last six months. Thanks to each and everyone of you for taking the time out of your busy lives week after week to read, comment, and share my blog posts.

Christmas Gift For Nursing Students. 

Christmas is right around the corner(a week to be exact) and I’m sure many of you are like me  squandering to buy last minute gifts (procrastination really is my middle name). No worries I’m here to help. I came up with a short list of things you can get the nursing student, nurse or healthcare professional in your life for Christmas. If they’re a little like me in any way, keep in mind a little goes a long way. I know for me I’m satisfied with a handwritten note, showing a little appreciation is all we need, after all school is no Joke and working in the healthcare field is no easy fete.

Let me stop blabbing (as if we’re not late already) get to the list I created. Some of these I don’t own and are on my personal wishlist (family take note ) but I also think any of theses would be ideal for you guys.Read More »
