3 messages about nurses that Katie Duke wants to send the world
She’s got strong opinions and the resolve to make them known. Here, what Katie Duke wants everyone to know about the nursing profession.
“Our media and especially TV/film tend to only portray nursing roles as the promiscuous slut who is out to sleep with doctors, some pill popping nuisance, or some weak-minded ‘Yes, Doctor’ support person. They need to drastically shift this perspective to what we are: highly skilled and indispensable to health care rather than disposable.”

For any of you who need a little inspiration/motivation/love right now. Found this on my Facebook feed and thought I’d share with all the nurses/nursing students out there on tumblr. Things like these helped me to keep going especially when school or clinical or just life in generally got rough.
Keep your chin up. ^_^v
For everyone else,
Nurses are expected to meet people, learn their histories, discover their flaws and be with them during a vulnerable time in their lives. Nurses are expected to keep some distance, to remain professional and act like they’re not affected.
But, we are.

WARNINGS HAVE BEEN ISSUED FOR: EVERYWHERE. Seriously, again, everywhere. (See further down for all Warnings and all issued areas) The track of this…
Snow days for nurses. This needs to be a real thing.
Well, I guess Superman didn’t have a day off, too. The parallel is not a coincidence. ^_~
there are 2 songs that have 100 beats per minute which is the correct amount for cpr and they are “staying alive” and “another one bites the dust” and if u don’t think that’s the rawest shit you’ve ever heard you can unfollow me right now.
My former clinical tutor who teaches cpr said she had to find new songs for the students because some of them don’t know what those songs are. She said Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” fit the bill.
