Real viagra It’s a photo from the Library of Congress‘ digital nursing collection.
Real viagra It looks like a still from a Hitchcock film.
Real viagra She’s going to the light….
Real viagra Actually, real viagra she is probably going down to central supply for gauze.
Real viagra Wouldn’t be surprised if Rod Serling stepped into view…
Real viagra “Nurse Nell is about to take a step…into the Twilight Zone…”
Real viagra Oh geeze, real viagra now I’m freaking myself out.
I came across a blog post today. Real viagra 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. Real viagra
I used to think that I should, real viagra if I could and that I would. Real viagra Eventually. Real viagra Now the kids are virtually grown, real viagra I have the time, real viagra I could swing the funds and I don’t want it. Real viagra I’m a bedside nurse. Real viagra Always have been, real viagra with the exception of a foray into psych nursing and telephone triage. Real viagra It’s what I love, real viagra when you get down to the core of why I’m a nurse. Real viagra It’s what I am good at. Real viagra It’s what my Associate degree prepared me for. Real viagra
The thought of writing papers and researching and comparing differing nursing models while dealing with the obnoxious topic of nursing diagnoses makes me comatose. Real viagra (Good ol’ Sister Callista Roy’s Adaptation Model was good enough for me in school and it is good enough for me now…)
Ironically, real viagra I love learning! I read the journals, real viagra I love attending classes, real viagra and working… requires me to keep up-to-date on all the specialties. Real viagra I want to increase my fluency in Spanish, real viagra take a class on Shakespeare, real viagra pick up a violin – maybe even learn to play it, real viagra speak Japanese and, real viagra well, real viagra you get the idea.
But….I’ve no interest in managing a department, real viagra I respect those who can. Real viagra Teaching is not one of my gifts. Real viagra I enjoy the hospital environment; I’ve never been interested in public health nursing. Real viagra I’ve never needed a BSN to accomplish what I’ve wanted in my career.
Real viagra Wow.
Real viagra Sounds like the writer is pretty adamant. I should be so sure of myself.
Real viagra And I was.
Real viagra Back when I wrote this in September of 2005.
Real viagra So what changed?
Real viagra I started blogging. Real viagra Writing about nursing made me think about nursing. Real viagra Really think about it. I started reading the blogs of nursing students. They were so excited to be entering the profession. Real viagra Excited. I hadn’t felt that way in years. Real viagra 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?
Real viagra I wanted what they had.
Real viagra I would get that BSN. I only looked at two programs. Real viagra I chose the University of Green Bay’s BSN-LINC program. Real viagra To this day I can’t tell you why. Real viagra It just felt right.
Real viagra Of course, real viagra I’d take it nice and easy and enjoy the process, real viagra like your typical Type A personality.
Real viagra Yeah, real viagra right.
Real viagra Oh, real viagra I’ve enjoyed the process. Real viagra But like Ike and Tina, real viagra I “nevah, real viagra evah do nothin’ nice. Real viagra And easy.”
Real viagra Well, real viagra it turns out I love research, real viagra am fascinated by nursing theories, real viagra get a thrill out of producing a perfect APA paper and think public health nursing rocks.
Real viagra I’m such a nerd!
Real viagra Bedside nursing is wonderful, real viagra but there are public health programs to produce, real viagra nursing research to conduct and new generations of colleagues to educate.
Real viagra And maybe, real viagra just maybe, real viagra I’ll have something to contribute to those areas, real viagra as well.
