Myambutol 600mg Pills $252.00

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Well, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 this is creepy!

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 It’s a photo from the Library of Congress‘ digital nursing collection.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 It looks like a still from a Hitchcock film.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 She’s going to the light….

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Actually, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 she is probably going down to central supply for gauze.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Wouldn’t be surprised if Rod Serling stepped into view…

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 “Nurse Nell is about to take a step…into the Twilight Zone…”

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Oh geeze, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 now I’m freaking myself out.

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

I came across a blog post today. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I was floored.

I have reprinted it here with permission:

I’ve come to terms with something recently; I have absolutely NO urge to get my BSN. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00

I used to think that I should, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 if I could and that I would. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Eventually. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Now the kids are virtually grown, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I have the time, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I could swing the funds and I don’t want it. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I’m a bedside nurse. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Always have been, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 with the exception of a foray into psych nursing and telephone triage. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 It’s what I love, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 when you get down to the core of why I’m a nurse. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 It’s what I am good at. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 It’s what my Associate degree prepared me for. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00

The thought of writing papers and researching and comparing differing nursing models while dealing with the obnoxious topic of nursing diagnoses makes me comatose. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 (Good ol’ Sister Callista Roy’s Adaptation Model was good enough for me in school and it is good enough for me now…)

Ironically, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I love learning! I read the journals, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I love attending classes, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 and working… requires me to keep up-to-date on all the specialties. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I want to increase my fluency in Spanish, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 take a class on Shakespeare, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 pick up a violin – maybe even learn to play it, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 speak Japanese and, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 well, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 you get the idea.

But….I’ve no interest in managing a department, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I respect those who can. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Teaching is not one of my gifts. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I enjoy the hospital environment; I’ve never been interested in public health nursing. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I’ve never needed a BSN to accomplish what I’ve wanted in my career.

*****

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Wow.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Sounds like the writer is pretty adamant.  I should be so sure of myself.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 And I was.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Back when I wrote this in September of 2005.

*****

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 So what changed?

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I started blogging. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Writing about nursing made me think about nursing. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Really think about it.  I started reading the blogs of nursing students.  They were so excited to be entering the profession. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Excited. I hadn’t felt that way in years. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 What did they see in nursing that I no longer saw? Why were they sacrificing so much to embark on a career I had come to take for granted?

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I wanted what they had.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I would get that BSN.  I only looked at two programs. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I chose the University of Green Bay’s BSN-LINC program. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 To this day I can’t tell you why. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 It just felt right.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Of course, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I’d take it nice and easy and enjoy the process, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 like your typical Type A personality.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Yeah, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 right.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Oh, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I’ve enjoyed the process. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 But like Ike and Tina, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I “nevah, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 evah do nothin’ nice. Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 And easy.”

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Well, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 it turns out I love research, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 am fascinated by nursing theories, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 get a thrill out of producing a perfect APA paper and think public health nursing rocks.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I’m such a nerd!

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 Bedside nursing is wonderful, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00  but there are public health programs to produce, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 nursing research to conduct and new generations of colleagues to educate.

Myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 And maybe, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 just maybe, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 I’ll have something to contribute to those areas, myambutol 600mg pills $252.00 as well.

Zovirax 400mg Pills $59.00

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Ah, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 the Nursing Olympics!

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Here we see the U.S Synchronized Study Team.

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The judge, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 visible at the end of the table, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 will look for uniform cap placement, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 the exact angle of the binders, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 the uniformity of handwriting and the perfect 90 degree angle of the elbows.

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Should they meet the stringent criteria, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 they will receive the coveted Gold Stethoscope.

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Which will inadvertently be taken by a physician who asks to borrow it.

(Here’s how long I’ve been a nurse: I was once told by a colleague to get a pink stethoscope because no doctor, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 being male, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 would walk off with a pink stethoscope. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Yeah, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 I’m old!)

But in defense of doctors, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 I recently worked with an ED doc who was frantically searching for his stethoscope. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Could not find it anywhere. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Finally, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 one of the nurses found it. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Around my neck. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Along with my own stethoscope. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Truly a red-faced moment.

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

Change of Shift is now up at the INQRI Blog (The Blog of the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative). Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The focus is on education, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 and was the inspiration behind this post. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The next CoS will be hosted by Mamatrauma and submissions can be sent to “clynewarnr at earthlink dot net”.

Leslie at Getting Closer to Myself will be hosting the next Patients for a Moment blog carnival, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 so send your submissions! Check the link to her blog for the post with all the information!

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

It was a quiet night in the ED; we were shooting the bull about various topics. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 I said I would be graduating in May with my BSN and applying to a PhD program next month.

And then came the question.

“Hey Kim, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 if you are going to go through all that education, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 why don’t you just become a doctor?”

I explained how nursing is an independent discipline with it’s own body of knowledge and research, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 that nursing and medicine were separate professions…

I wasn’t getting my point across.

But then I thought of a better question.

“If you are going to go through all that education, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 why don’t you become a pharmacist?”

Doesn’t make sense, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 does it?

Neither does the nurse/doctor question.

*****

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Do you remember that old television commercial, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 “If caring were enough, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 anybody could be a nurse?”

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Or this poster, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 which singlehandedly pulled me out of burnout?

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Caring is the heart of nursing. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 I’d even say it defines nursing (see: Jean Watson).

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 But, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 the  foundation of nursing is comprised of anatomy, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 physiology, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 psychology, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 lifespan development, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 pathophysiology, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 philosophy, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 sociology, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 ethics, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 multicultural studies, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 critical thinking, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 leadership, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 statistics, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 research and

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Nursing Science!

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Why is this so hard for people to understand?

Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 What is the problem?

*****

Oh, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 I know the usual spiel: nurses used to be “trained” in hospitals, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 nurses deferred to doctors, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 nursing did not require a college degree, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 nurses could not practice independently, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 nurses just did basic care…yadda, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 yadda, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 yadda.

And that was all true.

About 70 years ago.

Well, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 it’s the 21st century, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 folks. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Let’s drop those excuses once and for all.

There is absolutely no reason for anyone alive today to not understand exactly what nursing is and what nurses do.

We need to talk about it.

Hell, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 we need to bring it up. At every opportunity.

And please, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 spare me the nurse recruitment videos with the emotional music and nursing sitting there talking about how they feel they are making a difference. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 Show me a video with nursing talking about making a difference while discussing what it means to be a nurse. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The education involved.  The ability to think critically. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The ability to work under pressure. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The ability to be flexible. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The ability to stand up and advocate for your patient.

For your profession.

And why it is worth pursuing!

*****

Frankly, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 it takes a good pair of “cohones” to be a nurse. Phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 The education is intense and the profession is challenging.

If you want to “help people”, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 go volunteer at a convalescent home.

If you want to care for people as a professional nurse, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 you’ll study harder and work harder than you ever imagined.

And when you’ve done that, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 you’ll “make a difference” in ways you never dreamed of.

So yeah, phenergan 10mg pills $100.00 I’m a little sensitive when someone asks me “Why don’t you just become a doctor?”.

I don’t want to be a doctor.

I’m a Registered Nurse.

Now let me tell you why….
