New jobs come with a TON of new information. In this video I will show you how I am organizing all the new information I am encountering as a Family Nurse Practitioner, so I can easily reference it later and have it around as long as need be! This method of organization would work for any type of career, academic journey, or just as way to organize reminders for you life! I am honestly quite upset I didn’t think of this until now. I could have saved so much time in NP school not looking things up twice! Ugh! Oh well.
This week was also a bit of a hot mess. While I am getting more organized at work, I’m falling apart at home. Check out the video to feel like you’ve got your life together!
I love pediatric nursing. Kids have such resilience and bravery in the face of illness, and it was truly an honor to provide nursing care to them for so many years. While pediatric nursing is a ton of fun, think wagon rides, and bubbles, it also can be frightening, due to how different it is from other areas of nursing. This video will cover my tips and tricks for planning your day as a nurse, nursing student, or NP with pediatric patients. I’ll go over how to assess them, my trick for getting blood pressures on squirmy little legs, and how on earth you can get a 5 year old to take their lasix. Hopefully by the end of the video you will feel a bit more prepared to enter your clinical or new job in pediatrics, and love it just as much as I did!
In this video I will also share what new method I have come up with to organize the topics I encounter in clinic that I am unfamiliar with. I think they could be incredibly helpful for students and professionals, of all kinds really! Let me know what you think!
Finding balance between work, nursing school, and life can be tricky! I know it took me YEARS and two rounds of nursing school (BSN and NP School) to figure out how to do life, school, and work all at the same time without reaching total burnout within the first few weeks of the semester. Nursing school, whatever type it is, tends to suck the life out of you, and when you combine that with working and tending to your everyday life, it is easy to become overwhelmed. I am certainly no expert on how to “do it all”, but I did survive both an accelerated nursing program and Nurse Practitioner school and kept the same guy around, so that has to count for something, right?! In this video I’ll share my tips for balancing life, work and school. Keep in mind that everyones journey is unique, so at the end of the day, you do what you need to do! You know whats best for YOU.
