Night Shift 🌈🌺💪🏼✨ So I heard that someone thinks nurses sit around playing cards? ♥️♦️♠️♣️Are you kidding? 🤬🤬🤬We spend 4 months as a resident in the burn unit, basically live there for 4 months. Its pretty superhuman what the NURSES do in the burn unit each day: administering meds, titrating drips, maintaining vents, dressing changes, debridements, comforting patients, keeping families up to date, cleaning and frequent repositioning, physical therapy, putting up with sleep deprived surgeons, teaching 🤯🤯🤯 kind of a lot right? oh and when the doctor isn’t around who do you think calls the code and starts running ACLS? 🚑 It’s your nurse 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 So yeah, I didn’t see any cards ♦️ ♥️♠️♣️ #nurses #nursesofinstagram #lovenurses #nurselife #nurseonduty #burnunit #nightshift #nightshiftnurse #burnsurgeon

This is Florence “See See” Rigney, who is the country’s oldest registered working nurse.

Seventy years of surgeries and flu shots, scared kids, bedpans, thermometers and all the rest. Seventy! She is an inspiration. People like her inspire me every day.

Where are my graduating nurse babes? You guys should be so freaking proud. Nursing school is one of THE hardest things to complete and y’all freaking crushed it. For that let me be one of the first to congratulate you and welcome you to the beautiful world of nursing. Starting out as a newbie nurse was rough. I did not adjust well transitioning from student nurse to nurse. I struggled with learning how to adjust to nightshift, how to rely on coworkers, not be afraid to ask questions, advocate for patients, converse with doctors and so much more. School only teaches you and prepares you so much. That’s why I am relaunching from SN to RN Bootcamp again this May. We will chat about preparing for the NCLEX, interview tips and tricks, how to prepare for orientation, what to expect the first year of nursing, how to adjust to nights and so much more. I’m going to share with you all my success tips and tricks. We will also be working on self care because IT’S ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS you can do as a nurse✌️. ❤️meal plans given to you by me for you ❤️ (4) 30 minute workouts/ week right in your home perfect for work days ❤️daily motivation and support inside and out of the bootcamp ❤️accountability from fellow healthcare babes going through the same season of life ❤️quick on the go recipes for work days (or nights) ❤️tips and tricks how to survive 12 hour shifts Prep week is quickly approaching and I am limiting this group to only a select few healthcare babes who are ready to be an example for their patients. To save a life, you have to start with yourself. Drop a 👩‍⚕️ if your interested. First 5️⃣ healthcare babes to commit get a free pair of awesome sauce compression stockings 🙌🏻. #nightshiftnurse #healthcarebabes #womeninmedicine #nursetonurse #nursesofinstagram #nursingstudent #studentnurse #medicalassistant #medsurgnurse #graduatingnurse #futurern #byenursingschool #lastclinical #scrublife #newgradrn #nclexhereicome #medicalsurgicalnursing #oncologynurse #becominganurse #newnursegrad #registerednurse #nightshiftproblems #nursingschoolproblems #nursingschoolgraduate #nurselife #hospitallife

58 Minutes Ago

They are so pitiful.when I go walk....they will be upset tonight. #big3 #mamaspoodles #sosad #nightshiftnurse #walkitoff #losethisweight

Idaan nlang sa kindat ang antok! #nightshiftnurse 😍🤪

So 2.5 years ago I chose to make a lifestyle change for ME and say yes! Changing your mindset to be able to change your life. At first it was a beginning to looking good on my wedding day and #shreddingforthewedding. Yes, I saw great results and felt AMAZING walking down the isle to the best man I have ever known! And a few month before our wedding he joined me in my workouts 🤗 Now that we are expecting our first tiny human, I have one more reason to keep going. Yes, at first gaining weight after having success getting into shape is a bummer, but then you realize you are creating a miracle. My workouts are getting harder the more he grows, however, I keep going to gain a healthy amount of weight throughout my pregnancy! Being an OB nurse definitely contributes as well knowing the health risks to both of us if I have the mindset that many have "eating for two". Yeah that's not a thing... you technically only need an extra 300 calories a day which equals an apple. However, my eating has by far been healthy since being pregnant and my hubby leaving. My cook left 🤦‍♀️ But nutrition is always a work in progress. Looking for mommys to be, trying to get pregnant or postpartum mommas and women in general who want to get healthy! Anyone want to join me in my journey? #expecting #ahathawayeverafter #babyhathaway #babyboy #augustbaby2019 #augustbaby #comingsoon #firsttimemom #pregnant #growing #pregnantandfit #pineapple #eatingfortwo #obnurse #obstetricsnurse #nurse #nurselife #nightshift #nightshiftnurse #momtobe #mommytobe

So I always charge my watch during the day when I’m sleeping and usually don’t put it back on until I wake up... so this is from 530 yesterday before work until 6 this morning (and it changes at midnight)... a total of 17.95 miles... a total of 8000 calories burned... but “nightshift doesn’t do anything because all the rsds/patients do is sleep”... #nightshift #nurse #workinghard #grind #applewatch #travelnurse #nightshiftnurse #werelazy #rn #registerednurse #miles #steps #calories #mylife #thetruth #nightshiftworker #longnight #tired #sleepy #oneofthosenights #job #life #wouldnttradeitfortheworld #helping #rounding #readyforbed #happythursday

Still aching today after yesterday’s long day shift at work. I looked after a patient who’s been in the hospital over a year and a half and we’ve all become so fond of them and + their family. I’ve been seeing them nearly every week since they’ve moved out of ICU + onto the ward but unfortunately they came back down to us. The patient deteriorated, became unresponsive + as a grade 3 airway needed a lot of people around to help intubate them. It’s a bit of a painful feeling, sedating + intubating a patient we’ve gotten close to, been through so much with and when they’ve progressed so so much. The horrible side of paeds intensive care 🌱

Thank you so much to everyone that I've met at Vidant Beaufort for making the past 6 months so enjoyable. The time has flown by and it feels like I just started yesterday. You all were so welcoming and I really felt like I was a part of your family. I'll forever cherish the memories we made on nightshift 😂 Once again, I'm so grateful to travel nursing to meet so many wonderful people doing what I love! How did I get so lucky with these assignments!?! 🤪 Our next stop, D.C. then..HOME!! I'll miss you all!!

Only a little excited to be leaving work this morning 😜 As much as I want to sleep, today is going to be a busy day! We leave early in the morning for our cruise so today we have to do all of our last minute shopping, get the house together and finish packing. Definitely feeling a little anxious and overwhelmed lol. Is anyone else a last minute packer like me? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Lemon pepper shrimp with asparagus and peas on cappatavi pasta in a garlic pesto cream sauce...say that ten times fast. .. My third meal from my @gobbleinc box. I was so blown away by how fast and easy all these meals were! And, yes husband and jack approved. .. The calories for this meal were ~800, which is pretty steep but so worth it 🤤 I try to make smart substitutes like pre logging the meal ahead of time or using Pam instead of 2 TBS of oil, or I’ll swap cauliflower rice instead of regular rice to help reduce the calories but sometimes you just gotta live life and go for it. I didn’t regret one single bite 😏 .. ..

Working a random night shift in the middle of all day shifts got me like 😴 • Thank goodness for my @bangenergy that gives me a little extra caffeine at 2am 😅 I’ve only tried a couple flavors and this cotton candy is for sure the best! Have you tried these before? What healthier energy drinks work for you? Help this tired nurse out folks 🤪 . . .

How do I balance being a full-time RN, a successful online health coach, a mom, the best fiancé ever, pet mom to 6 freaking animals and all around bad ass, all while trying to live a healthy lifestyle for myself?!? I'll tell you... It. Is. All. About. Prioritizing. I make a list every year, every month, every week and every day that lists everything I need to accomplish. Then I narrow that down to the most important tasks. Then I schedule out the ones that must be done to reach my goals. It's not always glamorous. It's not always the fun stuff. But I make sure I prioritize what's most important to get me where I want to go. I also have to be efficient with my time. I work in pockets of time throughout the day. I choose shorter workous. I meal prep. I schedule everything. I have non-negotiables every day. Balancing everything takes discipline but if you want something, you have to work for it. Plain and simple. . . . #tipsandtricks #protip #gettingitdone

Erste Nacht mit der neuen Frisur verbracht ☀️😍 Danke an Merle von @stufenschnitt ♥️ für die tolle Beratung und dass du gemeinsam mit mir dem Rot auf meinem Kopf den Kampf angesagt hast 🤩🥳 Es war wieder an der Zeit, dass meine Haare in Form kommen - ich habe „meine“ Frisur gefunden und lasse sie eigentlich meistens gleich schneiden, nur sie wachsen sehr schnell und irgendwann sind sie mir zu lang und sie nerven mich nur mehr 😅 - ich sollte echt lernen eine Regelmäßigkeit in meine Frisör-Besuche reinzubringen! Und die Haare werden wieder heller 👱🏻‍♀️, ich hatte ja meine blonden Haare superlange und dann wollte ich sie unbedingt rot haben (warum nur 😫) und jetzt startet der Kampf das rot rauszukriegen...es einfach rauswachsen zu lassen würde mir echt zu lange dauern, also werden sie langsam, Schritt für Schritt, heller und dann habe ich „bald“ meine blonden Haare wieder 😍🤭 #bossbabe #salonstufenschnitt #hamburg #wandsbek #igershamburg #germany #deutschland #healthy #healthylifestyle #nurse #nurselife #nightshiftnurse #backtoblonde #progress #fitnessgirl #sz2k19 #sizezeromiezen

The L&D board was looking pretty hefty at 2000 rounds 😩😩 Our nicu automatically admits any baby between 24 and 35 weeks. And of course we take any babies with complications at delivery.

P R I O R I T Y - That’s my 6th 12 hour shift finished and I’m tucked up in bed. It’s fair to say I am absolutely exhausted and struggled to drive home this morning but I made it! It’s been a tough week and it’s really taken it’s toll on my physical and mental health. I have probably slept for about 5 hours in total since Thursday, have cried, ranted, cried some more, been sick, had stomach cramps and been unable to eat. I think I’m resigned to the fact that I’ve lost this new job, my dream job and it looks as though the only option is to retract my resignation if they will accept it. I feel utterly deflated. I am now off work till Sunday night and I really need to pull myself together before I spiral so these next few days will be about recharging my battery and looking after me as well as spending time with the kids. The Mr commented on the fact I’ve spent one day out with them over the two week holiday and that’s made me feel so sad. The whole point of this new job was to improve my work life balance. I’m going to try and look after myself a bit on these few days off, self care for me means more than a bath bomb or a face mask (although both would be good right now) it means getting some sleep, refocusing my mind, seeing my children, trying to get my appetite back and trying to blow away the dark cloud hanging over my head. It’s amazing how one persons unkindness can have such a profound impact on you! The only positive I can take from this is the 7lb weight loss since Thursday 🙈 kindness is such a small thing but it’s legacy can be huge! #selfcare #thekindnessresolution #kindness #determination #exhausted #nurselife #72hourweek #nightshiftnurse #mentalhealth #priority #cleaning #cleaningcommunity #cleaningmotivation #cleanhousecleanmind #cleanhouse #homeaccount #blog #discoverunder2k

Some days I truly wonder why I wanted to be a nurse so badly. Other days, I know I’m right where I’m meant to be. Everyday, I know I’m blessed to be part of a profession that is full of wonderful, caring, intelligent, special individuals. Last week, some hurtful things were said about our profession. And although the memes were hilarious, what was said left many nurses feeling extremely discredited + undervalued. So let’s #flipthecards 🃏 and educate the world on what us nurses do! Credentials: RN, BSN Area of work: Neuro ICU Now what do I do in my 12.5 hour shift? I care for 1-2 critically ill patients at a time. I am checking on them (at the bare minimum) hourly. I’m checking their vitals, assessing their neurological status, addressing their pain, measuring their intake & output, checking their ventilator settings, repositioning them so they don’t get pressure sores, passing their medications, analyzing their heart rhythms, drawing their labs + implementing supplementation as needed, getting them ready for tests/procedures/surgery, calming them + their family down and explaining what is happening, helping them go to the bathroom or (mostly) changing them as needed. I am the first line of contact. I am their eyes. I notice if something is wrong, different or “off” first. I report to the team my findings. I let them know if I think the patient needs something or if I am concerned about a change in their care. I am responsible for catching changes before they get out of hand. I am my patients’ advocate and voice. Outside of all of that, I help my coworkers with their patients. I am trained to handle emergencies when they arise. Sometimes I don’t get to pee. Sometimes I don’t get to eat. Sometimes I have no connection with the outside world for my entire shift as I am so immersed in my patients’ care. I miss lots of events with friends because I am required to work some weekends. I miss out on holidays with my own family because I am required to work + take care of yours. I can tell you one thing- I definitely don’t have time to play cards all shift. My job is hard. My job pushes me everyday. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am a #proudnurse ❤️

So some people may not know this but a set a lot of goals for myself at the beginning of the year. One is to #runamileeveryday and another is to #run1000miles this year. It hasn’t been easy so far, but I’m proud to say that as of today I’ve run #300miles this year!!! That means that not only have I run every single day, but I’m also 1/4 way to my overall yearly goal. On top of that I signed up for my first ever half marathon this week! With #hardwork #motivation and a little #supportfromfriends I feel like I’m in a good place to accomplish all the goals I’ve set for myself!!! If I can do it anyone can do it.

. It’s been go go GO lately and this girl is V exhausted trying to keep up whilst growing a human, but today I was reminded of a few things... . 1. I have the best support in the whole world @blakers128 whose note with this little flower pot says: “I thought these might help you to Flower Power your way the rest of this looonnngg week!” Um, cue the #happytears . 2. It’s ok to take a few days of rest. Repeat: it’s ok. Did you need to hear that? Me too 👌🏻. . 3. You can meet some fantastic humans via social media! My cup is filled getting a new coach started tonight + my coach bestie leadership retreat in Utah is in 7 DAYS!! Peep 👀 my stories all this week to hear how coaching is a huge (unexpected) part of my life & why it might make sense in yours too♥️

Standing with my fellow nurses 🧡 As a nurse I have spent hours kneeling over a tub handholding the monitor tracing your babies heart rate because you had your heart set on a natural tub delivery. I have told you this is normal and this is hard, because it is. I have told you, you can do this, because you can. I have turned you from side to side, calling for extra hands and telling you everyone is here that needs to be but things are about to happen very fast as we rushed you through the hall for a cesarean birth. I have held counter pressure for hours, helped your baby latch for that first breastfeeding and wiped both poop and meconium from my badge. I have cried, at your side and in my car, after taking your child's footprints, a child you will take home only in your heart. As a parent I have cried in a nurses arms, so afraid for my child, overwhelmed with fear and exhaustion. I have stood by while nurses went to bat for my child, advocating and listen to a mothers intuition. I have watched them swarm your room, giving meds, calling out directions and working as a team to save my childs life. I have walked in to see my child being sang to and comforted because he needed someone every second and as his mom, I needed to see the sunlight for a moment. I have been comforted, taught, advocated for and fed by my child's nurses. I have gone to sleep knowing and trusting the nurse who would care for my child through the night. Proud to be and to be cared for by NURSES 🧡👩🏻‍⚕️ . . . #flipthecard #whatnursesdo #nursesrock #nursemom #rnstrong #nursesunite #nightshiftnurse #medicalmama #heartmom #nurselife #loveanurse #weloveournurses #sutter #lpch #advocatelikeamother #stanfordchildrenshospital #proudnurse #notjustanurse #rn #bsn

A side note about me is my puppies are my babies. I am just so incredibly in love with them! 🐾 ⁣ ⁣ 👋🏼 If you’ve been around me in the past 24 hours you likely know one of my puppies is suffering from a horrible ‘hot spot’ caused by allergies. She’s been distressed, uncomfortable, not eating, or going the bathroom the list goes on. Last night we decided to just take her into the doggy ED to make sure all was okay and we were taking the proper steps in caring for her. ⁣ ⁣ 👉🏼 since we have been taking care of her 24/7 things have happened... the house is an actual wreck, anxious feelings have been taking over, and overall just stress has been overwhelming. ⁣ ⁣ Tonight I’m taking a breather at home with my sick girl, cleaning house, and turning to my little tools to help me think clearly, breathe deeply, and let go of any unwelcomed feelings. ⁣ ⁣ I’m turning to oils aromatically because they’re incredible in soothing the mind, body & soul! ⁣

The best part of night shift is going out in public in the middle of a normal work day and not worrying about running into everyone 🙌 #ilookdead . . . #theoffice #theofficememes #nicu #nurse #rn #lpn #cna #nurses #nursejokes #nursehumor #nursememes #studentnurse #funnynurse #nightshift #nightshiftnurse #nicunurse #icunurse #snarkynurses #nurseabnormalities #medsurge #medsurgenurse #nursing

Hello!!!... hey to my fellow nurses getting to the bag! Make that money but don’t let it make you. #spoiledrotten #nightshiftnurse #spoiledontopofspoiled #hardworkingwoman

Do the damn thing.⠀ ⠀ What is it you want to do?⠀ ⠀ Write a book, lead a company, open your own practice, become a nurse...⠀ ⠀ These were all things that some bad ass individuals told me they had as their deep dark goals at the beginning of this month at the #dukeitup event with @thekatieduke in NYC.⠀ ⠀ I’m going to challenge you to do something just like I challenged them... let your deep, dark, scary ass goal be known. GO TELL SOMEONE what it is. Chances are, if that person loves and supports you, they are going to believe you can make that shiaatt happen! ⠀ ⠀ Stop holding yourself back people. You are capable YOU have to believe it.⠀ ⠀ I’m not going to tell you to go do something without doing it myself... so I am going to share one of my deep, dark goals with y’all.⠀ ⠀ I want to speak in front of HUNDREDS of nurses/nursing students on empowerment and growth within the next 5 years. ⠀ ⠀ Yup. Speaking to this group of people on this topic gets me EXCITED as heck. I cant contain myself thinking of doing this. So when Katie asked me to be a part of her event I sprinted to the opportunity to speak! One step at a time, it will take time but I’m willing to work for it and NOW I have you all to hold me accountable. ⠀ ⠀ What that thing you want to do?⠀ ⠀

This is as raw and uncut as I get 😬 #12hourslater #nightshiftnurse

sugar, yes please 🍭🍬

I worked last night, it’s been a long day already, and I still have to go into work at 11:00pm tonight. 😬 Because I know how important it is to FUEL my body and my mind, especially on days like these, I made sure to get in my daily SUPERFOOD while my husband and I juggled kids between soccer practice, tball practice, a church retreat/rehearsal that both of us had to be at with our daughter, and parent-teacher conferences. All in 3 hours! Whew! We made it through another Wednesday evening! Thank you to the village that helped us get our kids where they needed to be today: my mother-in-law and my sister, we couldn’t have done it all without them! #superfood #shakeology #deliciousandnutritious #strongmomma #fitmomma #momswhoworkout #healthylifestyle #momoftwo #momofagirlandaboy #momofboth #hunterswife #nightshiftnurse #beachbodycoach #liveyourbestlife #cantstopwontstop #noexcuses #wellnesscoach
