You’re a human BEing who’s allowed to change and evolve 🖤⠀ scrubs #sponsored by @cherokeeuniforms⠀ thoughts always my own 💭⠀ ⠀ As I’ve been working on Nurse Giveback Night everyday I’ve been thinking a lot about why I started the event and how I used to feel.⠀ ⠀ Most importantly I remember guilt for not loving my job or being burnt out and then uncertainty of who I was outside of that or what would I even do if I changed careers.⠀ ⠀ I wish someone would have given me a hug and said it’s ok to do something else. You’ll figure it out. It’s why I’m so passionate about giving you all a big permission slip that says it’s ok to do YOU.⠀ ⠀ Life will require so many transitions of us, you may be going through one now or you may love your life and your job and that’s amazing too. 🖤⠀ ⠀ You can go back to school, or not.⠀ ⠀ You can start a business, work all the overtime, get a second job or go part-time for no reason at all.⠀ ⠀ You can focus on fun, travel, your kids, your house, your dog.⠀ ⠀ The only wrong answer is doing what someone else tells you to do or what’s expected.⠀ I believe we have all the answers inside, you know what’s calling to you. Just listen 👂🏼⠀ ⠀ Lastly, if you were going to throw aside everyone’s expectations for just one day... what would you do? 👇🏼⠀ Lemme know and I’ll pick someone to win a tee!

I took a chance and decided to run with it ... I prefer to say I tried & learned rather than wonder what if. . . . . Yes, I admit I tend to take on more than I should & I’m definitely learning to say no more often but it’s hard when you’re motivated & eager to help and learn while you’re at it. . . . . Many of us keep putting off our goals & dreams thinking the right moment is going to magically appear but let me tell you that moment will never come. There will always be something that happens or someone that doesn’t support your decisions & that’s totally fine. You need to know what you want & just go for it. Ask for help, read books, use your resources. When there’s a will, there’s a way. Google is one of my best friends 😜. . . . . Stop waiting, wishing and watching others. Do your thing, work to make your dreams a reality & be proud of who you become in the process. Enjoy the journey. . . . . . . #iamanurse #nursing #fitnurselife #latinarn #latinasinmedicine #nurselife #rn #nursemom #nursesofinstagram #katiusca_c #fitnursemom #nursinginformatics #instanurse #proudnurse #empowered #usefearasfuel #healthyishappy #womeninmedicine #changeyourthoughts #exercisingformyhealth #momsinmedicine #healthyisalifestyle #nurseproud #nursesrock #spreadlove #inspire #alwayslearning #goforit

I started this movement because I was tired on waiting for someone else to feel better...⠀ ⠀ When the next schedule comes out I’ll feel better⠀ ⠀ When I go to days I’ll feel better.⠀ ⠀ When this class is over I’ll feel better.⠀ ⠀ And the list goes on and on!⠀ ⠀ I believe from the bottom of my heart that we can feel better today. That you don’t have to wait and if we all helped each other out our days would better. 🖤⠀ ⠀ These green and grey crops are going away but white is around to stay and I found smalls for you and they’re being printed as we speak!!

Two days ago, @mclemoremr wrote: "I’m going home. I’m taking all meetings from my house. Sorry folx but I’m tired." . Dr @mclemoremr is tired because she has been waging war against those who threaten to infringe on reproductive rights that were hard worn almost a half century ago. In the last few weeks, she has testified before congress on the importance of Title X funding (read her testimony here: http://bit.ly/2IYuXBf), named a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing, advocated for mothers in the national campaign, @marchformoms, published research reports on reproductive health (see Scientific American article here: http://bit.ly/2ZO8yNZ and previous post). We're tired just thinking about all of her work. But, we're also totally inspired that a #nursescientist is at the forefront of discourse on #reproductivejustice at such critical time in our nation's history. .

Happy #firstdayofsummer AND #internationalyogaday ☀️ 🧘🏼‍♀️ I’ve practiced yoga on and off for many years, but it really became a priority last year when I needed to find something to ground me. Moving to a new city, sitting for my nursing boards, starting my first nursing job made me feel unsettled and unsteady. Yoga became a way to escape and challenge myself in a healthy way that didn’t put extra strain on my body. It’s healing powers were exactly what I needed and I’m so grateful for the home I found in its practice. 💕#livejoyful

Rolling into night 2 of 3 and I wanted to say something to ya. ⁣ ⁣ I hope you found something to smile about today. I hope a patient or coworker or husband/wife, pet, child did or said something to make you feel incredibly special. ⁣ ⁣ Because you are. You’re so special and your patients are so lucky to have you. It’s almost the weekend ya’ll - let’s end the week on a high note! ⁣😘livejoyful

Has “being a nurse” been your identity since you graduated nursing school? ⠀ ⠀ It was for me. All the way until this year. I’ll be entering my third decade of life this year and honestly not too long ago, I couldn’t answer “who is Frances?” without saying “I’m a nurse” and then listing a few things I like to do. ⠀ ⠀ Whether you just passed your NCLEX last year OR you’ve been a nurse for 38 years...you may struggle answering that question... “who am I?” ⠀ ⠀ Even after all the hard work, years later, you find yourself asking, “what next?” and a lot of times we stay in unhappy work situations way longer than we should. ⠀ ⠀ You know that “familiar pain” I’ve been talking about that I heard on a podcast episode by @loriharder a few weeks ago? Well this quote says it all ⚡️⠀ ⠀ Your professors or preceptors might have said it or hinted at it, but there is no right or wrong way to go about your nursing career. And if I know you well enough, you were/are that overachiever who wanted to ace all the crazy exams and kill it in all your clinicals. And because you had that “aim to please” attitude, you probably got it stuck in your head that you SHOULD start in med surg first, or you SHOULD work in a hospital because that’s where nurses learn so many skills. ⠀ ⠀ Well, I’m here to tell you, it’s OKAY to pivot to find what makes you happy. ⠀ ⠀ It’s OKAY to further your career when you feel ready, whether it’s right away or years later. ⠀ ⠀ It’s OKAY to explore different avenues, whether it’s still nursing or not. ⠀ ⠀ You are still a nurse even if you go into law or ethics, management, and even administration. And you certainly can leave nursing and become a photographer or wedding planner. ⠀ ⠀ Be open to the opportunities and listen to what path your heart tells you to follow ❤️⠀ ⠀ Do you want a safe place to go to not feel alone in the stress that comes with being a nurse and discovering “what’s next for you”? The Elevate My Joy Facebook Group is growing and we’d love to have you join! Link is in my bio! Oh and PS there are a few questions to answer to join the group! But no worries, there’s no right or wrong answers! ⠀ ⠀

This goofy awesome handsome kid of mine is going to MIDDLE school! I can’t even take it 😭. To top it off in his yearbook his fav part of 5th grade “was learning about the digestive system” #nurseproud #momproud #mysonshine #graduationday #lastdayofschool 🎓 💞🎉🎓✏️

Dear journal, ⠀ ⠀ What took me so damn long to start living my dream life? ⠀ ⠀ Love, ⠀ Frances 😚⠀ ⠀ Seriously though, I’ve been on autopilot, searching for my dream life since I graduated nursing school 8 years ago. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve worked as a nurse in: ⠀ ⠀ ❤️ cardiothoracic step down⠀ 💔 cardiothoracic ICU (my longest stay, about 3.5 years)⠀ 👶🏼 labor & delivery (for the shortest time about 8 months 👉 also where I feel like I hit rock bottom in my nursing career)⠀ 💐 and currently inpatient oncology and hospice ⠀ ⠀ I’ve worked straight nights 🌙 for all of it, except for when I was in the ICU and I did day/night rotations month to month. ⠀ ⠀ I was also unemployed for 5 months after quitting one of my jobs and although I felt bad about myself, like I had failed...I actually loved not working (go figure 😬) and I even traveled to Dubai while I was not working 🛫🕌⠀ ⠀ There was not much I loved about nursing after I quit and chose to be unemployed. I did however enjoy taking care of end of life patients and because it came with the territory of inpatient oncology, that is the floor I chose after my 5 month nursing hiatus. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve gotten so much advice over the years about what I should do next in my nursing career. And it’s almost laughable now, and it’s probably why I love @instagram so much, but in January 2019 I hired a random stranger who called herself a nurse mentor (I found her on INSTAGRAM of all places...Love you, Cat @nineliveshealth 😘😘), and after 8 long years of feeling burntout and unaligned with being a nurse, I finally felt safe, understood, and like I could literally start living my dream life. ⚡️⠀ ⠀ When I learned that meant I was allowed to quit nursing and work at Starbucks if that’s what would make me truly happy, I knew I was all in 🤯😛 ⠀ ⠀ So hop over to @nineliveshealth ‘s page to check her out in all her awesomeness but you should keep up with me too because I have a boss program in the works for you, and I’d love to be the one to help you start living your dream life too 😘

Startede egentlig ugen med at tænke at det var lort at være sygeplejerske. Det kan det virkelig også være og det var det i den grad også i weekenden. Jeg følte mig utilstrækkelig, overvindelig af største kaliber, inkompetent og modløs. Jeg vil være den bedste sygeplejerske og jeg føler ærlig talt at sundhedsvæsenets mangler i dagens Danmark umuliggør denne ambition. Jeg har nogle klare forventinger til den nye regering, hvordan den end sammensættes. Ligeså stramt som jeg havde det i weekenden, havde jeg det med aftenens -og morgendagens vagt. Jeg mødte ind til en personlig tak fra pårørende til en afdød patient som var mig utrolig speciel og igen ændrede det sig for mig. Pårørende med det overskud i en svær tid, er altafgørende for hvordan jeg anskuer egen indsats og faglighed. Jeg er stolt af, at have været i patientens tanker til det sidste og jeg er stolt af, at det lykkes mig at yde en indsats som er mindeværdig, til trods for det virker nyttesløst til tider. Hvil i fred og tak for alt du gav mig personligt og fagligt. Alle patienter rører mig på hver deres måde, men nogle mere end andre. Tak for dig 🕊_________________________________________ #nurseproud #nurselove #nursesofinstagram #nursestagram #nursegram #proud #workhard #hardwork #workworkwork #irefusetogiveup #thankyou #overwhelmed #nurse #work #eveningshift #personalnote #chocolate #honored #lastjourney #geriatricnurse #icareforyou 💕

⁣“Isn’t it hard to be around death all the time?”⠀ ⠀ #ad⠀ ⠀ When I first started hospice, I thought I would cry daily...and for the first few months, every single death rocked me.⠀ ⠀ As the months pushed forward, the curative mindset I had held near and dear to my nursing heart—went by the wayside. My goals shifted, and my ah-HA moment occurred! I no longer looked at death as a failure.⠀ ⠀ Death for me now, is the great relief. It is our grand exit. When a person’s time comes, death can be navigated with empathy and advocacy. Death can be dignified and peaceful.⠀ ⠀ We are taught to fear death, but we are not immortal—death is our ultimate destination, no matter how our lives play out. ⠀ ⠀ Education on the dying process and grief brings power and the ability to still have choice and purpose even when death comes knocking. Don’t fear death, don’t go running from the inevitable... live a life that allows you peace in the end. But no matter what your life brings, there can be dignity in death, this is my vow to every patient I serve. ⠀ #itshumantodie #dignityindeath #nursetamibsn [P.S.

Stop thinking that because you have a degree you are entitled to having it all come easy.⠀ ⠀ You are going to have hard days. You are going to make mistakes. You are going to fail, cry, worry. Your book smarts won’t save you from the feeling of incompetence you get when you step foot in your first patient room.⠀ ⠀ You are NOT entitled to comfort because of your 4.0 GPA. Your comfort comes with FIRST pushing past the extreme discomfort of being “novice”. ⠀ ⠀ I’m being tough love here. And there’s a reason. We have a problem. We get anxious because we don’t know it all... on day one on the job YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO. And y’all... YOU SHOULDNT. ⠀ ⠀ School prepared you for the BASICS, the foundation... your skills and on-the-job education will prepare you for your CAREER.⠀ ⠀ Get ready to feel uncomfortable, if you already do - rest assured you are in the right place. If you aren’t my question is - are you pushing yourself to learn as much as possible in these early phases of nursing?⠀ ⠀ You are okay, you will be okay. We were all scared and uneasy and sometimes still are, but the beauty is you keep challenging yourself and you rise!⠀ ⠀ Keep pushing.⠀ Keep growing.⠀ ⠀ #theempowerednurse#empower90 #nurselife #nursesofig #nurseproud #nursesofig #nurses #nurselifern #nursesofinstagram #newnurse #novicenurse #bsngraduate #rns💯 #cardiacnurses #cardiacnursing #nightshifter #nightshiftnurse #dayshiftnurse #nursingstudent #schoolofnursing #proudnurses

Hey Nurses! How many times have you thought.. "I can't go on vacation right now because there's too much to do", "my coworkers are taking off so I can't leave", or "I can't afford to rest right now"? Well, this month is the post for YOU! It's so important that those in helping professions love on themselves every now and then. It's important for you to feed your body and mind so that you can give to others at your job. Check out this month's post in The CE Circle! As always, we want to hear your feedback and what you'd like to read about in The CE Circle! . . . . . . . . #cehealthcareers #rn #traumanurse #registerednurse #california #canadiannurse #icu #ccu #icunurse #icurn #ccrn #criticalcare #womenentrepreneurs #nurselife #trauma #nursesofinstagram #nurseproud #rncasemanager #ernurse #emergencyroomnurse #cvicunurse #ornurse #operatingroomnurse #laboranddeliverynurse #telemetrynurse #medsurgnurse #traumanurse #connectingexceptionalnurseswithexcellenthospitals

I said this out loud for the first time the other day to another nurse and she agreed, so here it goes...⠀ ⠀ Sometimes going to work feels like I’m going to prison. ⠀ ⠀ Being really real here! Obviously I know it’s not the same and it may sound dramatic, but that’s honestly how I’ve felt at times getting ready for work, on my way driving to work, and sometimes while I’m at work 😳⠀ ⠀ Some days feel worse than others (weekends and holidays anyone?). But getting through a 13+ hour shift can be REALLY hard. ⠀ ⠀ Nursing is a job where you can’t really leave when things get tough, and sometimes you can’t even take a break to decompress. We just HAVE to power through, as hard and as painful as it can be. ⠀ ⠀ For me, feeling stuck on a floor for more than half of my day can be depressing, especially when you put 3 of those long shifts together...forget about it 😰⠀ ⠀ Is this burnout or is it just realizing a job is not for you? ⠀ ⠀ I’m having a hard time figuring out the right answer to that, and I’m not really sure there is one. ⠀ ⠀ But it’s how I feel and that is 100% real to me. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve thought some very bad thoughts driving into work. 🚘 Particularly when I was at one nursing job a few years back. ⠀ I want to start talking about it soon just to shed some realness on how horribly a job can effect your mental health. 🤕⠀ ⠀ When you feel that pre-shift anxiety, what are the thoughts that run through your head? How do you feel and what do you think about going into work? ⠀ ⠀ If you experience the pre-shift struggle or anxiety or if work feels like a prison to you, then I would love to chat. I’ve been there. I’ve felt those horrible things. It is not fun. ⠀ ⠀ I think speaking openly about the struggles of this profession can help shed some light on how maybe we can fix things, or at least make things better for each one of us who struggles. We CAN help ourselves feel better. ⠀ ⠀ I have 2️⃣ more spots available for a call this week. Just a 15-20 min chat with me to share your nursing story, your struggles and your frustrations. Comment 🙋‍♀️ if you’re interested in spilling the beans on how you’ve been feeling. I can’t wait to talk to you. 🙂

It’s my last day off before I head back into the world of night shifts... what does that look like for me? Lots of R&R and puppy snuggles with Keenie! Burnout is a BIG topic in the #nursingworld . It can look & feel different for different people, but it also can take a toll on your health- mentally and physically. We all know how hard it is to be a #nurse💉 but rarely do we talk about ways of #selfcare . This week on the joyflo website I am giving 7 Essential Activities for Revitalization for you to try on your day off. You don’t have to be a nurse to reap the benefits of this post!! As always link in bio 😘 what are some activities you do to help stop burnout?? Tell me in the comments below- I know it’ll only help others to read it!! #livejoyful

My best friend @thenurseflo pointed out these INCREDIBLE feather pendants from @chatfieldsjewelry a few weeks ago. We oohed and aahhed at their beauty and gasped at how quickly they sold out. Flor was head over heels, now so was I! A few weeks later I received a DM from @chatfieldsjewelry themselves🤗! They knew I had my eye on these beauties, and so—I leaped! I purchased two of these handmade silver feather pendants, one for me, and one for Flor. When a person like her comes into your life, holds space, has the ability to comfort you from over a thousand miles away— what can I say? She completes me, she is my soul sister, I don’t think I could ever truly thank her. Tomorrow I will send my bestie her feather on a handmade silver snake chain from @sweetwatersilver. Flor I love you and am counting down the days to August! #nursetamibsn #chatfieldsjewelry

I dont think I’ll EVER get tired of these baby 👶 kicks 💙⠀ ⠀ (These Infinity #scrubs #sponsored by @cherokeeuniform are the best for a growing belly!!!!)⠀ ⠀ Many of you have asked me how I am feeling during my shifts now that I’m pregnant. So I figured I would share some of the changes I’m experiencing so far!⠀ ⠀ 1. I am HUNGRY. Snacking was something I was always doing anyways (#scrubsnacks for life) but now that seems to be even more essential!⠀ ⠀ 2. I get tired quicker. My lull now happens about 4 hours into my shift, I will get a wind of energy most shifts after that and then crash again! A ton of ups and downs... what do I do? Five myself GRACE! And usually try to get as much of my care done BEFORE my crash period if possible. During that time I usually spend time talking to patients (on day shift)! ⠀ ⠀ 3. I get SHORT OF BREATH.... this one I was expecting the least! I usually work quickly, walk quickly, move patients quickly and effectively. I’ve had to slow the hell down since I’ve been pregnant and that’s a huge change for me! ⠀ ⠀ What were some of your biggest changes while working while preggers?!⠀
