Arimidex 1mg Pills $143.00

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Found this pic in the Library of Congress collection.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Perhaps this was a “Nurses Week” gift: a ping pong table in the break room!

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 This looks like a combination of ping pong and marital arts (Tae Kwon Pong?).

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Either way, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 who plays ping-pong in their cap?

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Nurse Ratched has discovered the same LOC collection.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Not that I have to use them before she does….

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 But it’s more fun if I do!


Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Change of Shift is up at The Muse, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 RN! Many thanks to our “muse” for hosting a great edition!

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 The host for May 27th will be Nurse Teeny at The Makings of a Nurse.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Submissions can be sent via Blog Carnival or to “nurseteeny at gmail dot com”.


Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Congratulations on your new job!

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 For the next six weeks (or so), arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 you will be center stage, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 in the spotlight.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 The play is called “Employment”, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 the audition is called “Orientation”.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 You may embark on a long, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 successful engagement, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 or you could go dark on opening night.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Your audience decides.

Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Your audience = your colleagues.


Let’s face it: orientation is all about evaluation. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Your actions directly affect whether or not you are successful in keeping your new role.  I’ve seen many an orientation turn into a “dys-orientation”.

How can you tell a successful orientation vs. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 a “dys-orientation”?

  • Orientation: You’re the first to get up and the last to sit down.
  • Dysorientation: You think the night shift is for relaxation and spend the down time texting, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 reading five-year-old editions of Better Homes and Gardens and snoozing. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 At the desk.
  • Orientation: You  realize the only way you will get the routine of the department is to be responsible for patients. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 A slow shift means you have to take the patients that do come in to get that experience.
  • Dysorientation: You pout when it is suggested that you take those patients, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 even if they are coming in only once an hour with simple chief complaints. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00
  • Orientation: You document your nursing care clearly and legibly.
  • Dysorientation: You think scribbling “IV” in the narrative is enough.
  • Orientation: You get to know your new co-workers.
  • Dysorientation: You spend time trading giggles with the guys/gals in the corner while you have four charts in the rack with orders. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00
  • Orientation: When your work is done, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 you ask your co-workers if they need any help.
  • Dysorientation: When your work is done, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 you sit.


I see an entirely different attitude toward orientation in younger hires. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 The focus is less on “how much can I learn during this time?” and more on “how little do I have to do before I can sit?”.

“What can you do for me?”  vs. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 “What do I need to learn here?

It’s the difference between seeing employment as a registered nurse as a “job” or embracing it as a “career”.

Have I turned into the dreaded “old fogey”?  T. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Rex, arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 RN?


Orientation is supposed to be the time when you put your best foot forward; a time for making a good first impression.

There will be time for socializing or “downtime” activities once you get the rhythm of the department. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Time for splitting a slow workload with your co-workers. Arimidex 1mg pills $143.00 Time for knowing when you can relax and when you need to be on alert.

Orientation is not that time.

Lasix 40mg Pills $91.00

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 I would have loved to have seen just how far I would have gotten inĀ  nursing with this “Symbol of Success”!

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 This looks like an ad in the back of “movie magazines” like Photoplay. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 Anybody else remember “Photoplay”? Or am I hopelessly dating myself with that question?

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 Ten weeks….

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 Wish someone had told me, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 I just finished three years!

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 Learn at home…

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 Gee, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 I guess they were ahead of their time where online classes were concerned!

Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 (P.S. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 For the rest of you old folk that remember Photoplay, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 wiki says it folded in 1980 and the staff went to “Us” Magazine.)


Change of Shift will be hosted by The Muse, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 RN this Thursday. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 There is a theme, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 so be sure to check the site! Submissions will be accepted up until Wednesday evening and can be sent to “themuse at themusern dot com”. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 You can also submit via Blog Carnival.


I cannot shake this feeling that something needs to be done.

Something is due. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 An assignment. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 A paper.

It’s like having phantom limb pain – I’m having phantom assignment pain!

But nothing is due! I made it! I can now officially write “BSN” after my name! As of the 15th I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay Program in Professional Nursing.

I actually haven’t seen my new title in writing yet, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 so I’ll write it here:

Kim McAllister, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 RN, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 BSN

Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!


It actually took awhile to sink in, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 because the accomplishment was overshadowed, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 briefly, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 by a huge disappointment.

I did not get into the PhD program at Davis.

Talk about feeling like being dropped-kicked in the chest! I can’t describe it any other way.

So there I am, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 feeling smaller than an itteh bitteh kitteh without a committeh, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 when what should appear but the reason I was not accepted!

I was “not competitive” with other candidates based on my “Statement of Purpose/written work”.


Not only was I not competitive, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 but I was not competitive in the area I thought was my biggest strength!

And if I had any sort of an ego before, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 it’s now so small even Viagra couldn’t revive it.

So much for blogging being my ticket to nursing academia/nirvana.


So. Fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 The next step.

Well, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 it looks like I’ll need to get my PhD via the MSN route, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 and I am hoping to do that through Cal State.

Trouble is, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 the admissions are closed until next year.

Good lord, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 no school for an entire year?

What the hell am I supposed to do with myself?

They say when God closes a door, fulvicin 250mg pills $69.00 He opens a window.

The life of a NASCAR groupie is looking mighty good…but something tells me that’s not the open window He has in mind.
