Cialisis In Canada

Cialisis in canada Found this pic in the Library of Congress collection.

Cialisis in canada Perhaps this was a “Nurses Week” gift: a ping pong table in the break room!

Cialisis in canada This looks like a combination of ping pong and marital arts (Tae Kwon Pong?).

Cialisis in canada Either way, cialisis in canada who plays ping-pong in their cap?

Cialisis in canada Nurse Ratched has discovered the same LOC collection.

Cialisis in canada Not that I have to use them before she does….

Cialisis in canada But it’s more fun if I do!

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


Cialisis in canada Change of Shift is up at The Muse, cialisis in canada RN! Many thanks to our “muse” for hosting a great edition!

Cialisis in canada The host for May 27th will be Nurse Teeny at The Makings of a Nurse.

Cialisis in canada Submissions can be sent via Blog Carnival or to “nurseteeny at gmail dot com”.

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

Cialisis in canada Congratulations on your new job!

Cialisis in canada For the next six weeks (or so), cialisis in canada you will be center stage, cialisis in canada in the spotlight.

Cialisis in canada The play is called “Employment”, cialisis in canada the audition is called “Orientation”.

Cialisis in canada You may embark on a long, cialisis in canada successful engagement, cialisis in canada or you could go dark on opening night.

Cialisis in canada Your audience decides.

Cialisis in canada Your audience = your colleagues.

*****

Let’s face it: orientation is all about evaluation. Cialisis in canada 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. Cialisis in canada 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, cialisis in canada reading five-year-old editions of Better Homes and Gardens and snoozing. Cialisis in canada At the desk.
  • Orientation: You  realize the only way you will get the routine of the department is to be responsible for patients. Cialisis in canada 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, cialisis in canada even if they are coming in only once an hour with simple chief complaints. Cialisis in canada
  • 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. Cialisis in canada
  • Orientation: When your work is done, cialisis in canada you ask your co-workers if they need any help.
  • Dysorientation: When your work is done, cialisis in canada you sit.

*****

I see an entirely different attitude toward orientation in younger hires. Cialisis in canada 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. Cialisis in canada “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. Cialisis in canada Rex, cialisis in canada 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. Cialisis in canada Time for splitting a slow workload with your co-workers. Cialisis in canada Time for knowing when you can relax and when you need to be on alert.

Orientation is not that time.

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 I would have loved to have seen just how far I would have gotten inĀ  nursing with this “Symbol of Success”!

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 This looks like an ad in the back of “movie magazines” like Photoplay. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 Anybody else remember “Photoplay”? Or am I hopelessly dating myself with that question?

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 Ten weeks….

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 Wish someone had told me, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 I just finished three years!

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 Learn at home…

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 Gee, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 I guess they were ahead of their time where online classes were concerned!

Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 (P.S. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 For the rest of you old folk that remember Photoplay, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 wiki says it folded in 1980 and the staff went to “Us” Magazine.)

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

Change of Shift will be hosted by The Muse, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 RN this Thursday. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 There is a theme, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 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”. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 You can also submit via Blog Carnival.

**********

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

Something is due. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 An assignment. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 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, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 so I’ll write it here:

Kim McAllister, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 RN, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 BSN

Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!

*****

It actually took awhile to sink in, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 because the accomplishment was overshadowed, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 briefly, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 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, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 feeling smaller than an itteh bitteh kitteh without a committeh, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 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”.

Ouch.

Not only was I not competitive, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 but I was not competitive in the area I thought was my biggest strength!

And if I had any sort of an ego before, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 it’s now so small even Viagra couldn’t revive it.

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

*****

So. Muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 The next step.

Well, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 it looks like I’ll need to get my PhD via the MSN route, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 and I am hoping to do that through Cal State.

Trouble is, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 the admissions are closed until next year.

Good lord, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 no school for an entire year?

What the hell am I supposed to do with myself?

They say when God closes a door, muscle relaxants > tizanidine 2mg pills > 180 pills > $466.00 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.
