Looking for a Nursing Job?

Tired looking for a nursing job

Frequently, nurses tell me that they are having trouble finding a job and think it is because either their previous job is talking negatively “black ball” about them or there is a Board matter in their past.  I stumbled across this article that I want to share it with you.  You can find it at: http://scrubsmag.com/confessions-from-hospital-hr-heres-why-we-didnt-hire-you/view-all/ and it is a […]

That Little Voice In Your Head

thumbnail

No, you are not crazy. We all have two different little voices in our heads.  One is the loud, negative voice that tells us we’re no good, and that questions how can you be a successful nurse, why do you deserve to be successful? But there’s also that quieter, softer voice supporting you saying, “You CAN do this!”  “You CAN […]

One of the best things that I learned, that helped me decrease my stress level is to take 5 minutes of joy each day. At first, I had trouble finding something that causes […]

Give Me A Break

thumbnail

Just about every day I hear that nurses cannot take their required breaks.  If they do take a break, it puts their patients at risk by giving the other nurses more patients to watch. In fact, several lawsuits have been filed against health care institutions claiming that nurses were not getting the breaks there were supposed to take and, even […]

The Power of Intention

Intention is a predetermined outcome.  Remember when you thought about getting started in this profession that you would do anything you could to get into nursing school?  Once you were admitted to school, you would do anything you could to complete the program.  Then when you completed that program, you would do anything you could to pass the NCLEX exam.

Gratitude

As nurses, we see the most difficult things in humanity.  We see people suffering, we are privy to their difficult family situations, we basically have a very privileged look into the details of our patients’ lives.  We see their hopes, their fears, their sadness and their joy. But all this does not come without a price.  When I was a […]

I recently had a trial and while the outcome was favorable, there were many learning opportunities presented to me. Along with 2 other attorneys, I was co-counseling this case.  Though we all are very experienced attorneys, we each had our own style and our own way of doing things. I found as I witnessed their approaches during the trial thinking […]
