Discount Cialis

Discount cialis Well, discount cialis this is creepy!

Discount cialis It’s a photo from the Library of Congress‘ digital nursing collection.

Discount cialis It looks like a still from a Hitchcock film.

Discount cialis She’s going to the light….

Discount cialis Actually, discount cialis she is probably going down to central supply for gauze.

Discount cialis Wouldn’t be surprised if Rod Serling stepped into view…

Discount cialis “Nurse Nell is about to take a step…into the Twilight Zone…”

Discount cialis Oh geeze, discount cialis now I’m freaking myself out.

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

I came across a blog post today. Discount cialis 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. Discount cialis

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

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

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

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

*****

Discount cialis Wow.

Discount cialis Sounds like the writer is pretty adamant.  I should be so sure of myself.

Discount cialis And I was.

Discount cialis Back when I wrote this in September of 2005.

*****

Discount cialis So what changed?

Discount cialis I started blogging. Discount cialis Writing about nursing made me think about nursing. Discount cialis Really think about it.  I started reading the blogs of nursing students.  They were so excited to be entering the profession. Discount cialis Excited. I hadn’t felt that way in years. Discount cialis 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?

Discount cialis I wanted what they had.

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

Discount cialis Of course, discount cialis I’d take it nice and easy and enjoy the process, discount cialis like your typical Type A personality.

Discount cialis Yeah, discount cialis right.

Discount cialis Oh, discount cialis I’ve enjoyed the process. Discount cialis But like Ike and Tina, discount cialis I “nevah, discount cialis evah do nothin’ nice. Discount cialis And easy.”

Discount cialis Well, discount cialis it turns out I love research, discount cialis am fascinated by nursing theories, discount cialis get a thrill out of producing a perfect APA paper and think public health nursing rocks.

Discount cialis I’m such a nerd!

Discount cialis Bedside nursing is wonderful, discount cialis  but there are public health programs to produce, discount cialis nursing research to conduct and new generations of colleagues to educate.

Discount cialis And maybe, discount cialis just maybe, discount cialis I’ll have something to contribute to those areas, discount cialis as well.

Zyprexa 15mg Pills $244.00

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Ah, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 the Nursing Olympics!

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Here we see the U.S Synchronized Study Team.

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The judge, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 visible at the end of the table, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 will look for uniform cap placement, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 the exact angle of the binders, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 the uniformity of handwriting and the perfect 90 degree angle of the elbows.

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Should they meet the stringent criteria, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 they will receive the coveted Gold Stethoscope.

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 being male, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 would walk off with a pink stethoscope. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Yeah, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 I’m old!)

But in defense of doctors, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 I recently worked with an ED doc who was frantically searching for his stethoscope. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Could not find it anywhere. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Finally, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 one of the nurses found it. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Around my neck. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Along with my own stethoscope. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Truly a red-faced moment.

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

Change of Shift is now up at the INQRI Blog (The Blog of the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative). Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The focus is on education, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 and was the inspiration behind this post. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 if you are going to go through all that education, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 why don’t you become a pharmacist?”

Doesn’t make sense, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 does it?

Neither does the nurse/doctor question.

*****

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Do you remember that old television commercial, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 “If caring were enough, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 anybody could be a nurse?”

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Or this poster, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 which singlehandedly pulled me out of burnout?

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Caring is the heart of nursing. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 I’d even say it defines nursing (see: Jean Watson).

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 But, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 the  foundation of nursing is comprised of anatomy, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 physiology, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 psychology, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 lifespan development, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 pathophysiology, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 philosophy, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 sociology, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 ethics, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 multicultural studies, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 critical thinking, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 leadership, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 statistics, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 research and

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Nursing Science!

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Why is this so hard for people to understand?

Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 What is the problem?

*****

Oh, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 I know the usual spiel: nurses used to be “trained” in hospitals, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 nurses deferred to doctors, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 nursing did not require a college degree, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 nurses could not practice independently, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 nurses just did basic care…yadda, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 yadda, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 yadda.

And that was all true.

About 70 years ago.

Well, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 it’s the 21st century, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 folks. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 we need to bring it up. At every opportunity.

And please, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 spare me the nurse recruitment videos with the emotional music and nursing sitting there talking about how they feel they are making a difference. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 Show me a video with nursing talking about making a difference while discussing what it means to be a nurse. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The education involved.  The ability to think critically. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The ability to work under pressure. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The ability to be flexible. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The ability to stand up and advocate for your patient.

For your profession.

And why it is worth pursuing!

*****

Frankly, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 it takes a good pair of “cohones” to be a nurse. Lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 The education is intense and the profession is challenging.

If you want to “help people”, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 go volunteer at a convalescent home.

If you want to care for people as a professional nurse, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 you’ll study harder and work harder than you ever imagined.

And when you’ve done that, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 you’ll “make a difference” in ways you never dreamed of.

So yeah, lasuna 60 tablet bottle $226.00 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….
