You know that song from frozen? Yeah, “Let it Go.” Your fear of traveling, that is. Aya travelers Amanda, Dylan and Kaitlyn share what happens when you take the leap into travel nursing in our latest blog post! Link in bio.
Workout 37&38/100 done ✔️
Week One had me questioning what the hell I got myself into😂
Week Two had me thinking “ok-this has some promise to it..”🤔
Week Three.. my mind said “GAME ON”👊🏽
And here I am rounding out week Four starting to feel like myself again and I love it. #strongereveryday and shrinking away!
Somehow with only doing core focused work once a week, I’ve still managed to lose 1 inch off my waist each week which is 🍌🍌🍌🤯
I Committed to myself to give it 💯 every week until the end and that is paying off.
Isn’t about time you start believing in YOU a bit more? Isn’t it about time you make YOU and your health a priority a lot more?
I really don’t care how many times you’ve fallen down (if you’ve journey with me over the years, it’s no secret that I have). I’m more concerned and ready to run with the people willing to stand up. Over and over and over again...
Stand with me.
Next group starts right after Labor Day weekend! We doing this or nah?? Shoot me 💯 to the inbox! #fall7timesStandup8
Good morning acute LPN's!!! One of our Northern BC clients is looking for help this Fall-Winter. There are multiple opportunities available throughout this time frame, and these do NOT last long!
Contact your consultant today to hear more about the community that keeps our nurses coming back all year long ... Did we mention the possibility for overtime?!?!

Aug.8th: Today was my last day as a fulltime OR Nurse at UNC Medical center. I plan on transitioning to PRN (as needed), status and will be able to pick up shifts 30 days from now. I completed my OR Nurse Residency here, and have gained a wealth of knowledge, networking, and experiences to last a lifetime. I'm thankful for all the wonderful staff I worked with, and for the opportunity to service the great people of North Carolina. #scrubnurse#circulatingnurse#ornurse#surgicalnurse#travelnurse#nurselife#ayahealthcare#wanderlust
Every October, New Mexico hosts the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the largest hot air balloon festival in the world. Hundreds of hot air balloons take flight, painting the skies and evoking a sense of whimsy.
We have several needs for night shift ICU nurses in Albuquerque, New Mexico. These positions are for a Trauma Surgical ICU and 2+ years of relevant experience is preferred. Apply today at the link in our bio.
What do you do when something you’ve done for years and years cuz you thought it was the right thing to do turns out to be useless? Presenting a multi collab with @bedsideroundz, @eddyjoemd, @plain.film.medical.memes, and @corconsultrx (if you’re not following all of them you should), using docusate as the example. Docusate (colace brand) has been the go-to stool softener forever. But as succinctly pointed out in the February issue of Journal of Hospital Medicine (“Choosing wisely: things we do for no reason”), multiple clinical trials have shown that docusate performs no better than placebo. So... why do we keep ordering it? Just proves we need to continue to think critically about what we all do “without thinking”! Thanks to my co-collaborators for spreading the news! 👉👉Are there any other “traditions” you shake your head at that we need to shed the light of hot critique on? 👈👈Comment below or on my instastory!

My favorite day of the month is hair day! When I’m here getting a refresher and feeling all the good feels.
Sometimes I wish I could just inject coffee straight into my veins, but I'll have to settle for coffee runs during our shifts 🤣
This week, 3 shifts in a row meant back to back traumas, sedations, bronchiolitis in August, broken bones and code grey's. It's already starting to feel like winter now that school is back in session for all the kids! Life of a pediatric ER nurse! Thank goodness I can drink my coffee from my couch this morning!

Report to the Unit or the floors from the ER can be a struggle. 😫
What we focus on in the ER is usually not what the upstairs nurses are interested in. •
We are like, “And then we found a bottle in their butt!” 😃😃
The floor nurses are more like, “But is their skin intact?” 😐😐
Call it tribal differences, but I have found giving a satisfactory report is helpful in making efficient transitions of patient care from the ED to the floor. Here is my system -
✅ Always start with a “Thank You” for taking report. The Unit & the floors are busy. It’s always nice to start with recognition of their time challenges.
✅ Give a nice intro to the patient that includes the patient’s name, age, allergies, admitting diagnosis, admitting MD & code status. •
✅ Go over their visit from triage to the present in a narrative format that doesn’t jump around in time too much. Tell them major events, medications given, diagnostics, & end with a nice set of last vitals along with how the patient is currently doing.
✅ Make sure to mention IV access, skin status, last BM or urination if you know, if the patient is ambulatory & if there is family around. •
Report is a personalized process that each person refines per their personal preferences & experiences. What I mean is, the above is just a recommendation. However I have found these bits to be of general importance to the upstairs nursing staff. See if it will work for you.👍🏽👍🏽
Have other advice? What has worked for you in the past?

“Life is like the ocean 🌊. It can be calm or still, and rough or rigid, but it is always beautiful....⠀
Tbt!!! To the time the end of an amazing hike lead me to the sea...💙💕💙
As a nursepreneur, I'm often the only lpn at the table. Nevertheless, I progress and continue to prove myself as an expert. As credible. As valuable. 🎖🎖🎖🎖
Writing has opened so many doors, for me. I'm so excited to be able to sit at tables. Open doors. Break stereotypes. And give other nurses tools to go beyond the beside or simply advance within their career! 🤝🏿🤝🏿🤝🏿🤝🏿
Thanks to @georgianurses@uaprnga and @victoriarandlethenp for allowing me a seat on their entrepreneurial panel. I will be speaking on how nurses can build a writing business.👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Yes, you can cook in a camper. You’d be amazed at how many times I get asked that lol 😂
I’ve been trying to come up with some super quick and easy vegetarian dishes that I can whip up before work. It’s a little more challenging because I have little prep space and it can get really hot in the camper while using the stove or oven. Also, it’s super hard to motivate myself to cook before work. I know I’m not the only one that struggles with this. Drop some ideas below I need some motivation!

Reason why I'm always *almost* late for work: I pack my lunch every day. I literally avoid hospital cafeteria food like the plague. Anyone who has been to a hospital or worked in a hospital knows why! 🤚🏼 Hint: cardboard chicken, sooo much oil, tons of added sugar... ya feel me. AD I always bring my lunch in my @builtny lunch pack! It keeps my food fresh, has a zipper so no one can easily steal my snacks, and is eco-conscious. Triple-win in my books. Has anyone had someone jack food from their lunch bag?! THEEE WORST.
