Herbal Risk Viagra

Herbal risk viagra reno2I woke up early this morning, herbal risk viagra having changed my flight.

Herbal risk viagra With the exception of a few glances out my hotel window, herbal risk viagra I had been incommunicado with the outside world for four days.

Herbal risk viagra I had packed my sweatshirt, herbal risk viagra figuring I’d go from the shuttle to the airport to the plane and wouldn’t need it.

Herbal risk viagra The casino was quiet. Herbal risk viagra Not too many people up and about at 0630 on a Monday morning.

Herbal risk viagra I checked out, herbal risk viagra headed for the revolving door and this is what awaited me outside!

Herbal risk viagra A pristine blanket of snow, herbal risk viagra soft flurries falling sideways and dead silence.

Herbal risk viagra Whoa.

Herbal risk viagra I stood outside for as long as I could stand it and let myself get snowed on.

********************

Herbal risk viagra The title of this post comes from a story told by this man, herbal risk viagra Mark Scharenbroich.

Herbal risk viagra Mark gave the keynote speech at the ENA Leadership Conference.

Herbal risk viagra You can hear the original story right here on Mark’s site NiceBike.com.  I suggest you listen because it’s hilarious.

Herbal risk viagra And profound.

Herbal risk viagra My take on it is a little different than what Mark spoke of in his keynote. Herbal risk viagra But not much.

Herbal risk viagra Oh, herbal risk viagra and hey, herbal risk viagra Mark?  Nice bike.  Very nice bike.

*****

My attendance at the ENA Leadership Conference confirmed one thing.

No way in hell am I cut out to be a manager.

Never. Herbal risk viagra Nada. Herbal risk viagra Not gonna do it. Herbal risk viagra Don’t wanna do it. Herbal risk viagra Never have wanted to do it. Herbal risk viagra Never will want to do it. Herbal risk viagra Don’t have the personality for it. Herbal risk viagra Don’t have the stomach for it.

And I sure as heck don’t have the skills for it.

But thank goodness for the nurses who do.

*****

As far as my managers go, herbal risk viagra I haven’t always been the easiest staff nurse to deal with. Herbal risk viagra What? You thought I was the perfect nurse?

Well, herbal risk viagra you just keep on thinking that!

The reality of it is that sometimes my attitude really sucks.

It may come as a shock (not), herbal risk viagra but I gripe. Herbal risk viagra A lot. Herbal risk viagra Not necessarily to my manager, herbal risk viagra but being rather, herbal risk viagra um, herbal risk viagra verbal, herbal risk viagra the whole world knows exactly how I feel when I feel it and why I’m feeling it.

And griping begets griping. Herbal risk viagra Before you know it, herbal risk viagra I’m ten times more ticked off than when I started, herbal risk viagra my blood pressure is sky high, herbal risk viagra I’m ready to quit (again) at 0700 and my co-workers are aren’t exactly uplifted.  Sometimes we feed off each other and have a regular group gripe session that lasts throughout the night.

On those shifts you would think we work in the depths of hell.

*****

The truth is I don’t work in the depths of hell.

Here is where the crayons come in.

My department is like a very nice, herbal risk viagra brand new box of 8 Crayola crayons and at times it seems all I do is gripe that it doesn’t contain Cyan, herbal risk viagra Burnt Sienna, herbal risk viagra Magenta or Periwinkle.

If I stopped bemoaning what we don’t have and appreciated the primary colors we are able to provide, herbal risk viagra I’d be a lot less frustrated and my patients a lot more happy.

(And my co-workers very relieved!)

You can buck the system without getting anywhere or you can work within the system to accomplish what you want to accomplish.

It’s time to stop counting crayons and start drawing the best pictures I can with the colors at my disposal.

Blood Pressure Cardizem 60mg Pills (Generic) $129.00

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 billThe man never sleeps.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 He says he does; I don’t believe it.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 Meet William (Bill) Briggs, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00RN, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00MSN, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00CEN, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00FAEN, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 the current President of the Emergency Nurses Association.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 Oh, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 he is also the Trauma Program Manager at Tufts University (Boston).

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 And he is a per diem staff nurse at Lowell General Hospital.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 And he is a member of the Metro Boston Critical Incident Stress Management Team.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 And he teaches TNCC and ENPC.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 Geeze! I gripe when I have to work an extra four hours……

********************

Bill was kind enough to sit down with me at the end of a busy Saturday and talk a bit about himself and about emergency nursing.

I had a blast.

*****

Some people are born to be emergency nurses.  Bill was destined for the emergency department.  He wanted to be an EMT so badly that he took classes when he was seventeen so he could jump into the role on his 18th birthday.

He graduated from nursing school ready to hit the code room running!

Unfortunately, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 back in the late 70’s, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 you just about had to wait for someone to die before there would be an opening in ER.  Bill filled his time with gaining experience in med/surg and critical care, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 detouring to Saudi Arabia where he wound up managing the ER in a brand new, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 state-of-the-art hospital!

Bill’s been involved with ENA for so long it wasn’t even ENA when he joined, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 it was the “Emergency Department Nurses Association”.

Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 Circa 1978.

Now he’s the president, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 and the professional organization for emergency nurses boasts a national roster of 36, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 500 members.

*****

There is a standing joke in ENA that if you get up to go to the bathroom during a local meeting, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 you’ll be appointed state president by the time you come back.

Around 1985, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 after being back in the states and involved again with his local chapter, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 Bill “came back from the bathroom” (so-to-speak) as the Massachusetts State TNCC Coordinator.  (Okay, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 he actually volunteered to do it, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 but the thought of getting an assignment while you’re in the bathroom was too funny for me to pass up!)

*****

We often think of our managers and leaders as not being “hands on” or not really being involved in patient care.  Bill repeated a theme I heard often this weekend: that as a nurse leader/manager he could affect patient care on a more global scale, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 having much more influence than he could at the bedside.

But, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 two times a month, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 Bill dons the scrubs of a staff nurse and walks the talk in his per diem job at Lowell General, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 keeping himself connected to the patients and the staff nurse perspective.  “It’s just in me, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00” he notes.

And by the end of a Sunday PM shift in triage, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 he is more than ready to shift back into the leadership role!

*****

This year, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 the ENA put a call out for committee members.  Eighty positions were available.  Over four hundred applications were received. Anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 It’s an organization record.

Bill believes that the surge in interest comes because the issues being studied are extremely important to ER nurses everywhere: crowding/boarding (the #1 issue for ER nurses), anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 psychiatric care in the ED and workplace violence, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 to name just a few.

*****

Emergency nursing requires passion for the work, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 passion that can become depleted as we get caught up in the day-to-day minutiae of patient care or management obligations, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 putting us in danger of burn-out.

That’s where the ENA comes in.

By attending local meetings (or national conferences!) and networking with colleagues, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 we are able to reconnect with that passion.

And Bill Briggs is passionate about emergency nursing.

It’s contagious.  One meeting, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 and I felt re-energized.  Many, anti-anxiety anafranil 10mg pills (generic) $198.00 many thanks to Bill for taking the time to sit and talk with me and to Tony Phelps for arranging the interview.

(I still don’t believe he ever sleeps…..)

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 img_0203Yes, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 that is a plane onstage!

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Is that cool, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 or what?

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 This was the opening of the ENA Leadership Confererence this morning at the Grand Sierra here in Reno.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 That’s Bill Briggs at the podium.  He’s the President of ENA.  Trust me, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 he does not look like an alien in person.  It’s the glare of the lights.  Tony, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 PR dude extraordinaire, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 is going to get me a better photo.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I get to interview Bill tomorrow.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 This was such a great opening to the conference!  I’m sitting there, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 minding my own business and trying to answer mail via my iPhone.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 One. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Letter. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 At. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 A. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Time….

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 When all of a sudden, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 blasting out of a sound system I’d kill to have, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 comes Steve Miller singing “Jet Airliner”.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Well, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 good morning!  You play Steve Miller, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 you get my attention!

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 This was my breakfast.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 MINE!

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 At least until Susan from Shreveport came and joined me!

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 There goes my diet. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Forgive me Richard (Simmons) for I have eaten a scone and counted it as a fruit. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 My penance? Losing $40 at Caveman Keno. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I’m a high-roller….of nickels.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 The entire theatre was set for tables of six and this was on every table.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Knowing this is waiting will make it a lot easier for me to get up at 6 am tomorrow, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I’ll tell you that!

********************

WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS ON THE MEDBLOGGER MEET-UP….

But I can’t announce it yet.

Forget the poll on the sidebar, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 it’s old news.

Let’s just say the city I can’t announce has a Nascar Cafe and hosts a race every year.

I am chomping at the bit, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 ripping at the seams, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 bursting like a bubble…

And I’m out of metaphors.

********************

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Now back to ENA…

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I spent the day indulging my new interest in nursing research and spent a fair amount of time checking out the poster presentations.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 This is Gina Harrison, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 RN, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 BS, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 an ER nurse from Inova Loudoun Hospital in Leesburg, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Virginia.  Gina was one of the authors of a research study comparing blood specimens drawn by EMS vs. Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 ER staff.

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 A beautifully presented research study and many congrats out to Gina and her co-researchers because their article has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Emergency Nursing!

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I can say I knew it when it was a poster!

Blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Thanks for taking the time to talk with me about research, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Gina!

*****

One of the highlights of these conferences it networking with other nurses, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 and I had a great talk with Steve Stapleton, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00  a member of the ENA Institute on Emergency Nursing Research.  Steve is thisclose to having his PhD (University of Chicago, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Illinois)  and I was able to learn so much from talking to him about his experiences.

So basically, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I spent today getting oriented, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 buying a ton of books, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 donating to a worthy cause (no, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 not the slot machines) in the ENA Foundation and feeding my appetite for research.

Tomorrow?  Interviews, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 sessions, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 and the Exhibit hall awaits!

Right now.  I’m exhausted from travel and studying.

Yes, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 I’m the only person I know who comes to Reno, blood pressure accupril 10mg pills (generic) $83.00 Nevada with textbooks.

Go ahead and say it!  I know you wanna….

It’s true….I am…..a nerd.

But a cool one.
