A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to collaborate with a fellow blogger and was featured on her blog, you can check out my feature here. She is also in the healthcare industry so it was only right that for us to collaborate again. I’m always in awe at the amazing people I’ve been able to meet from my little corner on the internet; hey the internet does has its perks. Allow me to introduce Woodeline Pierre, this month’s Nurse of The Month feature.
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.
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 »
I’m sure by now you’re all settling into the new semester trying to find your bearings and what not. Some of us may have already taken our first quiz or exam. I’m currently studying to take my Phlebotomy Certification exam which is 8 days away. In an effort to share more of my journey to getting this nursing degree I thought I’d share how I prepare for an exam with you guys who are already in nursing school and for those who are considering going to nursing school. Here goes…
Happy New Year guys! I hope 2018 is going great for you all. This is my first blog of 2018. I had hopes of posting in the first week of the year but I had a lot of reflection to do. I’ve decided that I’m going to be more vulnerable and open with you guys. I’ve always had a little issue walking the thin line between revealing and not revealing too much at the same time. Being as private as I am, believe me when I say it’s HARD but I started my blog so that I could share my experience and at least inspire one person.
WARNING!!! This post might be a tad bit lengthy but I promise it’ll be worth it. So here goes…Read More »
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 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 »
