✨𝐀 𝐓𝐲𝐩𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐃𝐚𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐚 𝐍𝐈𝐂𝐔 𝐍𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞✨ (Part 1 ) 3-to-1 Assignment 𝟎𝟕𝟎𝟎: Arrive on the unit & participate in morning huddle. 𝟎𝟕𝟑𝟎-𝟎𝟖𝟎𝟎: Get report on all 3 patients. 𝐑𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝟏: Former 28 week preemie, now a 38-week feeder/grower, has some meds & on a 3L HFNC requiring 21% oxygen. 𝐑𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝟐: Hyperbili term baby who came from home, has a peripheral IV for fluids + nutrition & an NG tube used intermittently when he doesn’t finish his bottles. Has some labs, stable on room air. 𝐑𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝟑: NAS baby withdrawing from IUDE, requiring methadone Q3H & frequent consoling. 𝟎𝟖𝟎𝟎-𝟎𝟖𝟑𝟎: Scrubbing in & removing all jewelry per my NICU’s policy. Next I assess the safety of the bedsides (i.e. check suction, bag & mask inflation, & visualize emergency drug sheets ). I sanitize each bedspace + everything that I plan on touching throughout the day. Wiping down high-touch areas (cribs, IV pumps, stethoscopes, bedside tables, charting area, work phone, etc. ) is so important to prevent infections. Next, I double check orders, assess lines, drains, & airways & organize my day. NICU babies eat every 3 hours at my facility (9, 12, 3, 6 AM/PM ), meaning I wake up & assess each baby 4 times during my shift. Cares for each baby should take 𝐍𝐎 𝐋𝐎𝐍𝐆𝐄𝐑 than 30 mins or else you will fall behind! 𝟎𝟖𝟑𝟎-𝟎𝟗𝟎𝟎: Start rounding on my patients & introducing myself to any families present at the bedside. I start with the baby who’s already awake, crying, & hungry (example: Room 1 ). I collect vitals, perform my nursing head-to-toe assessment, complete my ADLs (diaper change, oral hygiene, eye care, measure abdominal girth, etc. ), & feed the infant. I administer morning meds & ensure all cares are complete before I exit the room & move on to my 2nd baby. 𝟎𝟗𝟎𝟎-𝟎𝟗𝟑𝟎: I complete all of the above tasks for the baby in Room 2. I touch, look, & compare the IV site, flush the line, & check the dressing. I draw labs such as serum bili or glucose (as needed ), check NG tube placement, patency, & aspirate residual, then put him to sleep before moving on to my final baby. Comment for Part 2 😊

@thevictoria .rose: Dear little black girl, I was you once. Anxiously waiting for all the stars to align in my favor. Unfortunately, it rarely does. But that’s the exciting thing about life. It will continually surprise you. So, keep striving for greatness. I see how hard you’re working to change the narrative society has placed on you. You are not alone. You will get knocked down and in more ways than one, but you have people rooting for you. I know I am. Never let rejection or failure define you. Together, we rise. You may not see it now, but disappointments often yield some of the greatest blessings. You’re about to start the journey of a lifetime. Your wildest dreams are right around the corner. You’re almost there. Do not give up. ✨ #thenurseoasis 📸✨- @harifahhendricksonphotography

CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT (Stroke ) These are often called the “heart attack” of the brain. While scary to experience, we have many interventions to help manage strokes and prevent them - the key ingredient is TIME! The faster a nurse is able to intervene, the higher likelihood that the patient will have a good outcome! This question will for sure be on the NCLEX so make sure to save this post and review the topic!

My preceptor surprised me my last day of preceptorship with this cake🎂 🍰 !! I got to learn from the most amazing crew that really turned what started out as lemons into lemonade 🍋 💕 If you read my previous posts, you’d know that I was placed at a rehab because hospital placements were not an option for my cohort due to COVID19 restrictions here in Massachusetts. 💉 📖 I’m so happy to have finished my clinical hours with such a friendly and enthusiastic group at this world-renowned rehab and to experience a different side of nursing. I had the opportunity to shadow the wound team, managers, physicians, and respiratory therapists as well, which was truly eye opening and helpful. I’m looking forward to practice, even in these uncertain times. 📚 #ati #livereview for #nclex this week then finishing up my nursing school journey with a comprehensive on Friday ✏️ 🥳 😄 🎉 🎊 Tagging some awesome pages that helped me through school!

This seems to be the largest number of calls I've gotten since I started the Nurse Advice Line: When should you get tested for COVID? What happens if you do need to get tested? . . With so many people getting tested for COVID, the results are backing up and could take 5-10 days to get your results. Here are the guidelines to determine if you should get tested: . . If you have either a Fever, Cough, or Shortness of breath... Get tested . . If you have any 2 of these: Been exposed to someone with COVID, Runny Nose, Sore Throat, Loss of Taste, Loss of Smell, Diarrhea, Severe Fatigue, or you have had any kind of chest imaging where Covid is suspected . . If you don't have symptoms and you came in contact with someone who doesn't have symptoms and isn't + but THEY came in contact with someone who is +, you don't need to get tested. Just wear a mask, try to limit public interaction (you can still go to work ), have good hand hygiene, and practice Social Distancing. . . If you need to get swabbed, you need to stay quarantined in your house until results come back. If you live with other people, and that person doesn't have symptoms, they should try to stay somewhere else. If they don't have anywhere else to go, you should stay away from each other. If you need to be in the same room, you both should have masks on, stay 6ft away from each other and practice good hand hygiene. Also, clean surfaces and handles. . . Est wait: Urgent Care has been fasted turnaround 3-6 days, Swabs through Hospital (primary care ) 5-7 days, Free swab drive up clinics 10-12 days -- It's hard to say how long it will take, so these are just estimates on what we've seen. . . #covid #coronavirus #covid_19 #nursesunite #covid19 #breckenridge #covıd19 #nurselife #optoutside #eddiebauer #offtheclocknurse #hikecolorado #rei #nursesrock #nurseblogger #coronavirusmemes #covid19italia #travelnurseadventures #nclex #nurseonduty #nursingstudent #wearetravelgirls #nurses #coloradogram #nurselifern #covid2020 #publichealth #nursesofinstagram #travelnurse #travelnurselife

Pre-COVID, I had been working on a neuro/tele floor for about a year. I once had a patient in the hospital whose chief complaint was dizziness, among other things. The patient was pleasant, alert, and oriented. A UTI was diagnosed and the patient was well on their way to discharge home. I came in the next morning to a patient who was unresponsive and had suffered through multiple seizures during the night. STAT imaging revealed a massive subdural hematoma that had likely been causing minor symptoms for a while, including the dizziness. I'm not sure if there was anything I could have done as a nurse to change this outcome, but it was really hard for me either way. The reason I tell this story is because we cannot assume that just because a patient is alert and answering questions correctly, we can move on with our assessment. Subtle, but important clues can be missed. Is this post helpful? Save it for future reference!

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. A theory created by Abraham Maslow which puts forward that people are motivated by five basic categories of needs. In this theory higher needs in the hierarchy begin to emerge when people feel they have sufficiently satisfied the previous need. Physiological: air, water, shelter, sleep, clothing, reproduction. Safety: Security, employment, resources, health, property. Love and belonging: friendship, intimacy, family, sense of connection. Esteem: respect, status, Self actualization: Desire to become the most that one can be. Use this when answering priority NCLEX questions. Remember physiological issues must be addressed first as they are first (bottom ) of the hierarchy. Sources: magoosh.com & thoughtsco.com #NCLEX #maslow #nursing #nurse #studytips #lifetips

Hi : ) here’s a list of random NCLEX facts you should know⁣ ⁣ In acidosis, the RR and depth increase in an attempt to exhale acids. In alkalosis, the RR and depth decrease; CO2 is retained to neutralize and decrease the strength of excess bicarbonate⁣ ⁣ Signs of L ventricular failure are evident in the pulmonary system. Signs of R ventricular failure are evident in the systemic circulation⁣ ⁣ The rapid removal of fluid from the abdominal cavity during paracentesis leads to decreased abdominal pressure, which can cause vasodilation and resultant shock; therefore, HR and BP must be monitored closely⁣ ⁣ Do not attempt to administer oral food or fluids to the pt experiencing a severe hypoglycemic reaction who is semiconscious or unconscious and is unable to swallow. This pt is at risk for aspiration. For this pt, an injection of glucagon is administered SC or IM. In the hospital or ER, the pt may be treated with an IV injection of 25-50 mL of 50% dextrose in water⁣ ⁣ Rubella vaccine is not given during pregnancy because the live attenuated virus may cross the placenta and present a risk to the developing fetus⁣ ⁣ Monitor the pt being treated for DKA closely for signs of increased ICP. If the blood glucose level falls too far or too fast before the brain has time to equilibrate, water is pulled from the blood to the CSF and brain, causing cerebral edema and increased ICP⁣


Starting my final two semesters of nursing school this week... surreal. I remember when I was trying to put this plan in place and it seemed so far off, and had so many obstacles, and now I’m at the end! Just two semesters and the NCLEX to go 😁👩🏻‍⚕️ #bsn #nursingschool #nursingstudent #nursing #nclex #rn #rnbsn

Imagine... in the midst of a world wide pandemic you face a massive explosion that kills hundreds and injures thousands. The explosion kills visitors in the hospital, some of your coworkers and even knocks you unconscious briefly. In spite of all that you find it in you to save three innocent newborn babies from the destruction while the building around you is falling apart. Can you picture it in your head? Well that’s what this nurse did. Don’t go into healthcare if you don’t have a passion for people. I’m not saying to sacrifice yourself for others but what I am saying caring for people cannot be taught. It takes a special kind of person to call them #nurse ❤️ #prayforlebanon #beirut Pic from @cnn

Feeling comfortable at work:⁣ ⁣ As a new grad it can be really exciting yet scary to start a new position. The learning curve is steep and someone is there to orient you for a few weeks. During your first year, you may not feel comfortable answering probing questions the family may have or even speaking to doctors on the phone. ⁣ ⁣ These feelings are normal! It takes over a year to feel comfortable in your job. For me it took closer to two years to feel comfortable in the ICU and I’m still learning new things! There’s still things I feel uncomfortable with or need an extra set of eyes. It’s always okay to ask for help because patient safety is the most important thing. ⁣ ⁣ No matter what, if you feel in your heart that this specific type of nursing is for you, keep working towards it. Soon enough you’ll find yourself blossoming from that baby nurse position 💪🏼

Sometimes you just have to chart “patient screamed gtfo of their room”....”will continue to monitor.” . Anyone else have those kind of nights? I love my job but sometimes it’s difficult to help those who don’t even want to help themselves. (Also patients who are withdrawing from ETOH or drugs is an all around sad and difficult situation ). Lately I’ve felt a little disenchanted with hospital life. I often wonder if it’s possible to do this for the next 35 years of my life. It’s not the first time (and I’m sure it won’t be the last ), but it feels good to be transparent. This job can be difficult + burnout seems inevitable, but it’s always good to remember why you went into this profession in the first place. Resilience is key 👨🏼‍⚕️🩺

I think some of you guys need to hear this. Being a brand new nurse is HARD. Nursing school doesn’t prepare you to be a NURSE, nursing school prepares you with the bare minimum to pass boards. Now re-read that. As a new grad you are learning new skills, new techniques, new information, new medications, how to work as a member of a team- but function independently and more importantly managing peoples lives. All that takes a lot of time and I don’t mean days or weeks I mean months and years. So don’t walk in the first day and beat yourself up for feeling like you know nothing. Take one day at a time, take notes, ask questions and be proactive. It’ll come with time I promise. We were all in your shoes and nobody started off knowing everything so don’t beat yourself up. Chin up. It’ll be alright. #nurselife

I have been absolutely overwhelmed with gratitude. #storytime I started nursing school journey in 2016 while working full time with a 3-year-old. I saw so much negativity about failing nursing school that I was afraid to pursue my dream. 4 years later…I did not just survive, I thrived.🕊 If I would have listened to the negative stigma, fears, and hate about nursing school then I would not be here. It is not easy, but it is possible if you work hard! I had one mission since I started BeautifulNursing.com to make nursing materials more affordable, understandable and accessible so more people could enter the field of nursing. BeautifulNursing has blossomed beautifully and I cannot thank you enough for the support, messages, and reviews! I introduce my latest creation of an NCLEX review study guide. I wanted to make this super affordable at $5 so everyone can have the same advantage! Make sure to check out all my free nursing school printables on my website too!!! I love you all. I work myself to the bone because of YOU!💕🙏 #nursingschool #nursingschoolproblems #nursingschoollife #nursingschoolprobs #nclex #nclexreview #nursingnclex #nursingschoolmotivation #nursingstudent #nursingstudents #nursingstudentlife #nursingstudenttips #nursingstudentsbelike #nursing #nurses #nursingpharm #nursingstudy #nclexstudy
