Drug viagra Perhaps this was a “Nurses Week” gift: a ping pong table in the break room!
Drug viagra This looks like a combination of ping pong and marital arts (Tae Kwon Pong?).
Drug viagra Either way, drug viagra who plays ping-pong in their cap?
Drug viagra Nurse Ratched has discovered the same LOC collection.
Drug viagra Not that I have to use them before she does….
Drug viagra But it’s more fun if I do!
Drug viagra The host for May 27th will be Nurse Teeny at The Makings of a Nurse.

Drug viagra Congratulations on your new job!
Drug viagra For the next six weeks (or so), drug viagra you will be center stage, drug viagra in the spotlight.
Drug viagra The play is called “Employment”, drug viagra the audition is called “Orientation”.
Drug viagra You may embark on a long, drug viagra successful engagement, drug viagra or you could go dark on opening night.
Drug viagra Your audience decides.
Drug viagra Your audience = your colleagues.
Let’s face it: orientation is all about evaluation. Drug viagra 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. Drug viagra 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, drug viagra reading five-year-old editions of Better Homes and Gardens and snoozing. Drug viagra At the desk.
- Orientation: You realize the only way you will get the routine of the department is to be responsible for patients. Drug viagra 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, drug viagra even if they are coming in only once an hour with simple chief complaints. Drug viagra
- 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. Drug viagra
- Orientation: When your work is done, drug viagra you ask your co-workers if they need any help.
- Dysorientation: When your work is done, drug viagra you sit.
I see an entirely different attitude toward orientation in younger hires. Drug viagra 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. Drug viagra “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. Drug viagra Rex, drug viagra 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. Drug viagra Time for splitting a slow workload with your co-workers. Drug viagra Time for knowing when you can relax and when you need to be on alert.
Orientation is not that time.
