Cialis daily canada When I said I wished I could wear my nursing cap, cialis daily canada this was not what I had in mind!
Cialis daily canada Behold the latest in Respiratory Isolation fashion – to be worn when your patient is undergoing an aerosolized treatment. Cialis daily canada First, cialis daily canada you put on a cap to cover your hair. Cialis daily canada Then, cialis daily canada you zip a disposable lining into the white hard hat. Cialis daily canada A motor blows cool filtered air in your face.
Cialis daily canada Nursing is not for the vain – you should have seen my hair when I took this contraption off. Cialis daily canada The N95 respirators take care of any make-up I might wear. Cialis daily canada So much for my cover model image : / Guess the folks at Glamour will have to wait.
Cialis daily canada Funny, cialis daily canada I feel a strange connection to this fellow…..
Be sure to check out Dr. Cialis daily canada Val’s new radio show, cialis daily canada Healthy Vision with Dr. Cialis daily canada Val Jones! It’s available on iTunes, cialis daily canada and can also be heard on Better Health by clicking the widget to the far right on the sidebar. Cialis daily canada Listen in as she interviews experts on regular eye exams, cialis daily canada contact lenses and UV protection for eyes (something I wasn’t aware of until recently!)
I took, cialis daily canada and passed, cialis daily canada the CEN exam!
Which is a little ironic, cialis daily canada given how I was so sure that my career in emergency nursing was coming to a close last month.
And it might have, cialis daily canada had “Thrive” Permanente seen any potential in an RN with 33 years of experience for their dermatology clinic.
(In addition, cialis daily canada I was passed over for someone with, cialis daily canada and I quote, cialis daily canada “a higher level of experience” for their chronic disease clinic, cialis daily canada too. Cialis daily canada Seriously. Cialis daily canada That nurse must have trained with Flo Nightingale, cialis daily canada herself! Mind you, cialis daily canada this was all via computer. Cialis daily canada No one ever talked to me. Cialis daily canada I’m starting to get a complex…)
And so I remain firmly ensconced in the ER milieu, cialis daily canada surrounded by the infarcting, cialis daily canada the exsanguinating, cialis daily canada and the lacerated; the migraining, cialis daily canada the febrile, cialis daily canada and the vomiting; the sprained, cialis daily canada the concussed and the drug seeking.
I’m proud of this CEN.
Didn’t change my work status. Cialis daily canada Didn’t change my paycheck.
But it does mean that I meet the core knowledge requirements for emergency nursing as established by the Emergency Nursing Association.
It feels good to have that verified.
I did get a new name tag with three new letters after my name.
I figure when the newness wears off, cialis daily canada I’ll stop looking at it every ten minutes.
I did the same thing after my BSN.
I’d like to say I worked my butt off for the certification. Cialis daily canada And I did.
But I also walked my butt off for it, cialis daily canada too!
The testing station was in San Francisco, cialis daily canada about 1.5 miles from the BART station; I figured I would walk. Cialis daily canada Could have taken the MUNI, cialis daily canada but the level of intimacy required due to the number of persons aboard was more than I was willing to share.
I started up Van Ness Avenue. Cialis daily canada Which is uphill. Cialis daily canada You don’t think it is, cialis daily canada but it is. Cialis daily canada Trust me.
By the time I got to the location, cialis daily canada I was sweating, cialis daily canada out of breath and dying for water.
(Actually, cialis daily canada I was dying for a margarita – I had passed two bars and a Chevy’s on the way…)
This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Cialis daily canada When I sat down to take the test, cialis daily canada I had zero anxiety. Cialis daily canada None. Cialis daily canada All that exercise must have cleared my head and left me with endorphins, cialis daily canada because I hit the keyboard running and did 175 questions in a little over an hour (about 75 minutes).
Passed with a 90%. Cialis daily canada You find out immediately.
Decided on a Grande Caramel Frappucino with Extra Caramel and an Add-Shot from Starbucks on the way home instead of a margarita. Cialis daily canada Given that the temperature had dropped twenty degrees while I was taking the test I was sorry I had not gotten an extra-hot latte.
But San Francisco never looked as beautiful as it did on that walk back.
Guess I’ll be hanging out in the ER for awhile…
