Female Viagra 100mg Pills $81.00

Editor Kitty is pretty funny!

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Actually, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 I’ll be hanging out with a bunch of “Editor Kitties” tomorrow!

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 I’m giving a talk on “Getting Started in the Blogosphere” at the annual conference of the International Academy of Nurse Editors, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 held at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Check out their initals: INANE! 😀 Something tells me this is a fun group of folks!

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Wish me luck. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 My biggest fear is they will introduce me and I’ll stand there with my mouth open and nothing will come out for an hour! Or all they will hear is Charlie Brown’s teacher: wah wah wah-wah wah…. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 😀


I have a new blog! I’m now blogging over at – my first post went up this week. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 The site just underwent a revamping as did the blog, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 and I’m looking forward to posting twice a week on nursing education and other nursing related topics. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 I’ll be earning my MSN eventually, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 so this was a perfect fit for me! Learning new html stuff, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 too! It was bound to find me! LOL!


And if it looks like my MacBookPro is smokin’, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 well, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 it’s because it is!

I’m in blog heaven!

Twice a month you can find me at, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 where I am writing about my recent experiences in the job market (and my hard-earned education in what NOT to do!).

The easiest way to find me is to subscribe to the newsletter.


Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00

You want to be a registered nurse?

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Let’s cut through the B.S. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 and get real about it.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Put a hold on all this soft-focus “I live to care!” or “It gives my life meaning…”

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Here’s the reality.


Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You will study your ass off.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Nursing science is based on biology, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 chemistry, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 microbiology, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 anatomy, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 physiology, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 psychology, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 sociology and philosophy. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Yeah, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 every single one of them. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You will incorporate those into every decision you make in your practice. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 It’s called critical thinking. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You master it and become a professional, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 or you don’t and you become a robotic technician.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Bottom line.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Your choice.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Oh, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 and the studying doesn’t stop after you graduate. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Nursing school is just the warm-up.


Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 The work is physically exhausting and emotionally demanding.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Are you tiny, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 petite? No? Neither am I and neither are your patients. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You will push, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 pull, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 lift, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 turn, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 transport and transfer loads you wouldn’t even consider attempting at a gym. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 The lightest patient is dead weight when bedridden.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You probably won’t get a chance to eat. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Need to pee? Should have thought of that before you left.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Legs that weigh 500 pounds each, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 feet that throb, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 backs that ache – welcome home after your shift. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Give that ibuprofen bottle a hug; it’s your best friend.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Patients die. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You are tough; it doesn’t bother you. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 But on your way home it hits that someone’s mother won’t be making Christmas dinner next week or you remember the father collapsing in your arms when his daughter was pronounced…

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 And you cry.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 It sucks.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You really want to deal with that?


Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You’re first in opinion polls and first on the firing line.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Oh yes, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 the public loves nurses.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Until you are the nurse.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Patients get pissed off. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 They are tired, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 in pain, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 hungry, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 cold, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 upset, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 frustrated, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 agitated, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 ticked off at the doctor, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 bad food, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 had to wait. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Guess what. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 YOU get the brunt of it. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Family members, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 too. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Decades of emotional baggage and they have to show they care for the patient by yelling at the RN.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 In twenty different languages!

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 YOU are the one through which all things come, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 and never fast enough! Including explanations for why every single department in the hospital is behind, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 late, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 inept. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 My favorite is fielding questions as to why Doctor Holy Mother hasn’t shown up yet.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 And when she does, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 expect to be totally ignored.


Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Body fluids.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 If the body produces it, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 you will handle it. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Feces (insert your own euphemism here); vomit; blood; infectious exudate, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 aka “pus”; vaginal drainage of every sort; amniotic fluid; saliva in the form of spit directed at your person and whatever secretions a trachea is producing on a given day.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Each fluid comes complete with it’s own odor. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 None of them are pleasant. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Often, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 when these body fluids occur in combination, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 their odors combine to produce a new and distinct aroma. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 When alcohol has been consumed and is in the process of being metabolized even more unique olfactory combinations ensue.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Some of these linger and will come home with you, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 as they seem to settle in your hair and skin, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 even without contact.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You will gag and most likely at one time or another you will vomit yourself.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Just keepin’ it real here, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 folks.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 If you are lucky, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 you will be wearing protective gear when said handling occurs.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Other times, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 all you can do is duck and pray.



They come from various state and federal agencies. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You can be sure of one thing: they will make your job as a registered nurse harder. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00


And if it shouldn’t, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 like nurse-patient ratios, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 the administration will find a way to turn it around and use it against you. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 That is a whole post in and of itself.

Ostensibly they are all for patient safety, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 but in reality they exist because somewhere, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 someone does not want to reimburse for something and so ponderous regulatory hoops will be put into place before the money will flow, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 usually in the form of “documentation”. Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 New forms, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 new regulations, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 more work, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 less patient care…

Makes ducking body fluids seem like a Disneyland “E” ticket….


Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 So, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 you still here?

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Seriously?

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 You must really want to be a nurse.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Okay, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 then.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Oh, female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 and all that soft-focus stuff?

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 About living to care and giving life meaning?

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 It’s true.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 We’ll talk about that in another post.

Female viagra 100mg pills $81.00 Just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page….

    Well put! This is definitely (in a NASCAR reference, for your benefit) where the rubber meets the road. Good words — every would-be nurse should read this before applying to nursing school. If you scare them off, good for the profession — we need people who are clear-headed about what they’re doing, not those living in some fantasy about becoming the next Flo!

    Good luck tomorrow!

    Well done with your description of nurses ADL’s in a hospital setting, and it does not matter what unit you are on. I worked in the Emergency Dept as Asst. Nurse Manager and you forgot the most important thing. They never have enough staff. Forget it if they have a disaster for example a fire. You must leave the building carrying a patient. I just finished my Master’s Degree in Nursing. My project focused on improving the Standards of Nursing Practice, and the CEO stated they will never institute this change in their facility. Why? She could not provide the staffing. Mean while the Board of Trustee’s approved it to go hospital wide. Could you imagine our own Nursing Leaders will not opt to help our nurses. Why? Most of these superviors, managers,CEO never worked long enough to know how hard nurses work all day. I still love nursing. It’s one of the most respected professions. I just wish that nursing adminstration would help us when making changes.

    Really enjoyed reading this and so, so true! I have been doing this since 1987 moving my way up the food chain from Orderly (old school), LPN and now RN. It has and still continues to be a wild ride, but begs the question, “When do I want to get off?”

    Great post! You forgot to mention the good stuff that makes all the crap worth it (and I’m not referring to the paychecks) tho….or maybe that’s the part that is coming in another blog?

    Great blog post! Reality check… real nurses deal with these things because they see the human picture. Thanks for your dedication! In your experience, have you worked PRN very much? Providers define PRN staff in so many ways, it confuses nurses. Any suggestions?

    I work PRN regularly. Some providers use PRN it like on-call. PRN is typically as needed to supplement. I do a lot of Hospice Crisis Care because hospices can’t fill their Crisis needs with FT staff. And I have found that I can make a higher hourly rate if I contract directly with the Hospice or Facility versus going through a staffing agency. I found this site that helps me find jobs when I’m available. I maintain my resume there, and can send it to anyone, when a PRN job arises. Anyhow, I recommend it.

    will miss the posts. Someone had mentioned earlier about the good stuff. It is there, you just need to sift through the bad. It is still rewarding to me.

    As a new recruit in the military one of the lessons learned was to respect medical staff. It was at the height of the Viet Nam war and the possibility of suddenly finding yourself in close proximity to a nurse was pretty high. Luckily I avoided any major injury then and have been fortunate to avoid all but relatively minor ER visits so far in these 65 years of life. But every time I meet a nurse, it’s with a smile and not a little awe.
