Cialis endurance This explains everything!
Cialis endurance I could never understand why some people run to the ED for every little thing.
Cialis endurance Now I know!
Cialis endurance They are running from a flying pink bloated virus that causes a variety of symptoms.
Cialis endurance The guy in the front has a kidney stone so he’s running the fastest.
Cialis endurance The woman has abdominal pain and the young girl behind her thinks she has an STD and that 0430 on a Sunday morning is the perfect time to check it out!
Cialis endurance The stud muffin on the right has a groin injury from soccer and the guy on the left has urinary retention.
Cialis endurance But, cialis endurance the man on the golf cart thinks he should be seen first and he’ll run ’em all down to make it to triage, cialis endurance only to find out that an infected toenail does not place him at the front of the pack.
Cialis endurance Of course, cialis endurance they are actually running to their cars, cialis endurance from which they will not be able to extricate themselves without assistance of three ED staff members.
Cialis endurance Which begs the eternal question: how do these people get into the car if they can’t get out of the car?
Ah…..it is not only Good Friday, cialis endurance but it is also my spring break! No assignments. Cialis endurance No responsibilities. Cialis endurance No housework (take that, cialis endurance Hubby!).
Time to sit here at Seattle’s Best with a 20 oz. Cialis endurance non-fat, cialis endurance caramel latte with whip and a hot asagio cheese sourdough pretzel. Cialis endurance Time to actually blog. Cialis endurance Ahhhhhhhhhh………
Speaking of school, cialis endurance I’ve got enough for 9 units next semester. Cialis endurance I want to do twelve, cialis endurance so I have three weeks to find another 1000 dollars. Cialis endurance I’ve checked the couch cushions and under the seats of my car, cialis endurance the crumb-laden bottom of my purse and the “change box” that holds all our spare change. Cialis endurance Now I just need $998.50. Cialis endurance Do I rock, cialis endurance or what?
My class this semester is “Theoretical Foundations of Nursing Practice” and I am loving every minute of it. Cialis endurance My original nursing classes (thirty years ago) were based on the Roy Adaptation Model, cialis endurance and I find it fascinating to look at the amount of research that has been done on nursing theory. Cialis endurance Some wonderful theories have been put forth, cialis endurance and I learn more and more each day as I apply them to my various nursing eperiences.
Yeah, cialis endurance I’m a nerd.
I’m so nerdy I want to discuss nursing theory with my colleagues. Cialis endurance So, cialis endurance I ask a newly graduated BSN what theory her program was based on. Cialis endurance She can’t tell me. Cialis endurance I ask what she thought of Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring. Cialis endurance She couldn’t remember what it was about.
So I asked one of my colleagues who works as a clinical instructor for the same program what nursing theory (or theories) the program was based on. Cialis endurance She had no idea.
WTF (pardon the language) was going on here??
I sure as heck knew who Sr. Cialis endurance Callista Roy was when I was going through my original nursing program and I can still discuss the Adaptation Model thirty years later.
Now, cialis endurance I’m not trying to say I’m a brainiac. Cialis endurance I’m not. Cialis endurance In fact, cialis endurance the 1970s saw an explosion in nursing theory, cialis endurance yet I was exposed to only one of them. Cialis endurance So, cialis endurance while I knew my theory of practice, cialis endurance I could not begin to discuss any others until now.
For the simple reason, cialis endurance and I have to thank my professor at the University of Wisconsin, cialis endurance Green Bay BSN/LINC program (Dr. Cialis endurance Sylvia Kubsch) for this insight: entry level nursing programs much teach with an eye toward the NCLEX exam. Cialis endurance My program, cialis endurance as we are all registered nurses, cialis endurance does not.
Why would this matter?
Well, cialis endurance think back to your nursing program. Cialis endurance Would “overload” be the right word? Were you so intent on learning the skills and how to actually function as a nurse that any “theory” you might learn got pushed to the wayside while you were educated on how to “be” a nurse?
How are you supposed to understand and delve into nursing theory with no practical experience from which to draw an understanding?
Now, cialis endurance when I read about a theory, cialis endurance I have an educated opinion on its merits because I can see it through the eyes of thirty years of practice. Cialis endurance Of course, cialis endurance I don’t believe it takes that long to develop enough expertise to appreciate nursing theory, cialis endurance but it requires some time.
You have to understand nursing theory to know why, cialis endurance although we work IN the medical model in hospitals and clinics, cialis endurance we are not OF the medical model. Cialis endurance To be able to stand up to a physician/pharmacist/physical therapist/psychologist with with an educational background that commands respect.
Can you see where I’m heading here?
Now, cialis endurance before we all get our feathers fluffed up to defend our nursing education, cialis endurance please remember that I am an ADN graduate and have proudly practiced as an RN, cialis endurance ADN for three decades.
In fact, cialis endurance I believe there is a place for an ADN (and a diploma grad) in the nursing profession. Cialis endurance A very important place.
In my next post, cialis endurance I’ll tell you what that is.
