It’s been 3 days since I have worked out..
Was feeling under the weather and with the holiday coming up didn’t want to miss out on Thanksgiving with the family!!
So back at it today and I must say it was tough at first but I maxed out on several different exercises and had a surprisingly awesome workout!! Now if only I could learn to embrace the #stairclimber
Self care! Something I try to do often but more often I fail at it.
I so badly wanted to skip the gym tonight-but I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t go. So, I went to the gym and I worked my ass off harder than I ever have before. I did cardio first for 35 minutes! 15 running 20 speed walking (anyone who knows me knows I have knees or a 90 year old and not really supposed to run but oh well-I did it anyways!) Then I went to #bodypump
cause who doesn’t love a good pump!? I then was planning on going home but there was a special even class at the gym... The Lion King! Cast member @ebjdance
taught an amazing jazz ballet class that made me feel invigorated and uplifted! I’m so happy I stayed and experienced such an amazing class. I may not be able to walk tomorrow but tonight I lived in the moment and busted my ass!
So why post this on a #nurseblog
? Self care! We are always preaching to our patients what they need to do to be healthy, prevent diseases, get better and blah blah blah but who are we to speak if we first don’t take care of ourselves? How can we tell our patients that they need to lose weight to be healthy if we ourselves are overweight? How can we tell our patients they need to get out and exercise when we ourselves don’t exercise? We are the example we need to set for our patients. We need to be motivation for them. We need to be on their side. We need to #practicewhatwepreach
And always push yourself to be the best version of yourself possible! .

Hi my name is Kinga and I’ll be your nurse today. ☺️💕
I believe it was only right to share this video because it defines the highs and lows of nursing. There will be days where you question if this is the right career choice😔 But I’m confirming today that God didn’t bring you this far to leave you and he will 1000% be there for you in the time of need all you have to do is trust him and put your best foot forward 👏🏾 you CAN and you WILL be an amazing nurse that will make a positive change in this world🙌🏾 continue to work hard and stay determined, because it will all pay off in the end💜 I believe in you and I pray for your strength 😩✨
Hi guys, I truly want this page to give nursing students like myself a safe place to freely express themselves about the ups and downs in the life of a nursing student. My goal is to motivate each and everyone of you to keep pushing. Everyone is free to share any tips they may have and so on. God bless ✨💜
As nurses, we truly love helping as many people as we can. With the vast devastation in California, it’s hard to sit back and wonder how to help. Today I found out @wearfigs
is donating 100% of its online sales to the California Community Foundation! This is truly amazing!! I hope you all consider buying yourself a pair of scrubs from them this weekend! Every small act of generosity can add up tremendously. ❤️ Scrub top: Extra Small
Jogger bottoms: Petite small
Took the day off today to watch my littlest brother WIN his high school football quarterfinals! Head to semis next weekend! He’s in his grade 12 year and they are having a phenomenal season. So glad I took some time out from studying/paper writing to be there.
Reminder. You don’t get moments like these back. Take a day now and then to spend with your family and enjoy the good stuff. School will always be there. These moments won’t. Don’t feel guilty. Disconnect. Enjoy. LIVE. School is important but so are all the moments in between 💛
My face going to work on a SATURDAY MORNING! YUP...cause I got a good nights sleep and it’s gonna be a good day with good people and good vibes and good wine (post shift obviously) #goodness

As part of my orientation I was to attend an infusion therapy class today 💉
It was run by a nurse who now is a nurse clinician who specializes in infusion therapy! Let me tell you that as a new grad this course was A LIFE SAVER 🙌🏻 During my time in nursing school, even during my consolidation, I was not allowed to start IVs and take blood work. So when I came to the ER.. about 95% of the population gets a work up including fluids and blood. As you all know practicing in a mannequin and a human is 2 different things.
The course refreshed our memories on vein anatomy, taught us the proper technique to inserting the needle, and understanding the dexterity involving IV insertion.
Some useful information from today:
- s+s that you’ve hit the nerve and not the vein are numbness and tingling in the arm - you want to apply the tourniquet 4-5 inches above where u are poking - in order to deal with rolling veins ... apply traction!
What are your tips for successful IV placement and getting blood work?🏥 #rn #md #pa #rt #nursingschool #nurse #nurselife #np #nursepractitioner #prenursing #premed #healthcare
Just like that an other semester is ending. When we just start it, we look on our 📆 calendar, it’s seem endless. When stuffs get top, we tighten and push ourselves. Mixed emotional 😭 when it comes to test. We freak out the day before test, wish that time gets slower, and in 12-h clinical some day we just wish time flies faster. But today I truly wish time is slower. It’s such a lovely, enthusiastic group. I have learned so much and felt so much. My eyes and mouths 👄 👀 wide opened, when I first saw a 23lbs tumor removed from patient and cirrhosis inside a live-patient. Felt thankful for technology during Cath lab how amazing when all the dye is flushed through the brain’s vein. I felt pain for my patient when they received hemodialysis. I definitely become more cautious in eating after saw endoscopy GI system. But the most thankful I have had is how these amazing nurse, doctors, PCA,... have taught us so far. Thank you so much Memorial Regional Staffs Team for such a great teaching spirit!! #thanksful #barrynurse #barrynursing
today is exam day! so i’m taking the time to actually eat my favorite breakfast beforehand 🥑🍞what is your favorite breakfast to eat before an exam?
Swipe for cuteness ♥️ but we are loving our Grinch themed @barkbox
🎄 it helps that Oliver looks so much like Max 😂
Tired : \ˈtī(-ə)rd \ : the kind of tired that when you lay down, your heart begins to beat out of your chest. The always something to do, but never enough time type of tired. The tired-induced anxiety attack you have from the long list of things you must get done. The “I just need 5 minutes of silence” type of tired. All of these feelings I feel almost daily - but this is what I chose. I thank God for these feelings even on my toughest days. •
Each week during clinical I am reminded of how blessed I am to feel tired driving home to my son. Thankful that I have the ability to open my nursing book and study material that will equip me to save lives. Humbled to take care of patients that are also tired, but in different ways. Tired of being in the hospital, tired of feeling sick. And sometimes- Tired. Of. Living 💔. •
So, count your blessings and be kind. We are all battling something in some way.
This.... is my patho bible. Inside contains all the info about our exemplars or examples of how certain body systems work and what happens when something goes wrong. Each on of these charts follows a concept such as stress and then outlines an A&P review, patho, signs and symptoms lab tests and so on. When I first started so many people recommended concept maps but I just couldn’t get into them until I made them into charts. One of the biggest things I’ve learned this semester is keep pushing until you find what works for you don’t give up and say you can’t learn it. You can it just might be in a different way! •
