Mother Jones RN over at Nurse Ratched's Place has a very interesting blog post for this episode of Change of Shift. Check out those uniforms and nursing caps from some "old school nurses" as she relates our nursing predecessors to the challenges we face today as nurses. It's a great blog post!! Be sure to read the linked blogs as well.
Many thanks to Jana at Reality RN for asking me to guest blog!! (Staying When All You Want to Do is Quit.) I hope it's a timely piece for those of you just entering the profession. It's going to to take you about a year to get comfortable in your new role as a nurse. Give yourself time, and try not to run screaming from the building (and profession) when things get bumpy that first year. It will get better!!!
