Violence at Work

June 15th, 2007  |  You're Being (Web) Paged

Recently, my local news reported on the violence nurses face on the job. The news anchor's voice had a disbelieving tone and spoke of "alleged" and "reported" incidences that nurses face during any given shift. The news report was born out of this newspaper article. Ask any nurse, and you will certainly get a story or two that proves this "alleged" phenomenom. I encountered a few hairy situations in my first nursing job where I left with ... More »

Health Literacy

Have you heard the new buzz word in health care? Yes, it's health literacy, which means a persons ability to read and understand health information and the ability to successfully interpret this information to become a functioning health care consumer. Although this definition is broad, it certainly makes it clear that an individual must be able to function as such to properly care for their health. As nurses, we take it for ... More »

I started my own blog for several reasons, one of which was to tell my stories. I love to hear about other nurses experiences and have been known to spend countless hours on the phone with my best friend swapping our trials and tribulations of our most recent shifts. Blogs have become a great venue for nurses to tell their stories. I've put together some of these stories from blogs and other websites. Some are humorous, ... More »

Graduates: The Studying Isn’t Over Yet

May 18th, 2007  |  You're Being (Web) Paged

With graduation season at hand, I've been finding myself thinking about being a new graduate nurse. I graduated from nursing school ten years ago but still remember those feelings of excitement, accomplishment, and fear. Several weeks after graduation, I attended a week long NCLEX review course. I can't tell you for the life of me what topics were actually covered, but I heard the take home message loud and clear: Answer the questions as a nurse. ... More »

Treat Yourself!

May 11th, 2007  |  You're Being (Web) Paged

In the spirit of Nurse's Week, I thought I would kick off this column with 5 ways to treat yourself. I know you deserve it, you know you deserve it, so cut loose and pretend it's your birthday! Or, at least, a gift giving holiday for those who don't want another birthday. The best nursing gift I have ever given myself was the gift of happy feet. Our feet need to be happy when we stand on them ... More »
