Fri-yay or Fri-nay?

It’s Friday and for some,  it’s even pay day!! You got plenty of sleep and woke up with a positive attitude. You head out early for your shift and even had time to stop for coffee. Awesome! You pull into the parking lot listening to your favorite song to get you hyped up for the day and then you walk in…..

“Good morning, we are short two nurses and low on several supplies. We are asking everyone to take shortened lunches today to help accommodate.” Just like that, your day is ruined! Or is it?

It’s days like these when you have to reach down deep and remember why you became a nurse in the first place! You recited the Nightingale Pledge promising to devote yourself to the welfare of those committed to your care. Your patients need and depend on you to care for them when they can’t take care of themselves.

So take a deep breath and pull yourself together. You’ve got this, tackle the day and do what you were called to do!

    This is a great forum for nurses to relate to one another. Nursing culture is great and sometimes we need to lean on each other to understand one another. I love this site!
