  7. Crunch Time

    My inner ER nurse shines again! Today I overslept and woke up (somehow) 40 minutes before a certification class I had to take for work. It takes me 30 minutes to drive downtown (NOT during rush hour) So my first reaction was to freeze, then I decided I’m making it to this class. I put on scrubs I found on my floor (dirty and backwards I noticed later), brushed my teeth for maybe 10 seconds tops and grabbed my keys. My horrible bedhead and no make up would just have to do.

    Ok, I probably didn’t drive the safest…but it was morning rush hour so I could only go so fast. I got lucky with a parking spot, threw my car in park, and took off running. I sprinted 3 blocks to get to the building I needed to be in and showed up ON TIME, looking like a mess but whatever. I was NOT missing this class.

    Later I remembered how I actually got this job. I also overslept (common theme) and woke up 30 minutes before my interview (again, 30 minute drive). I somehow made myself look presentable, showed up on time, and nailed it.

    It’s funny how when it all comes down to it, the little details just don’t matter. Yes I wanted to get up and make coffee, maybe have breakfast and WALK to class but none of that matters when it’s crunch time. This is something I’ve been learning from working in the ER for the past 6 months. (This is often why I have no lunch break or go pee for 9-10 straight hours) Now that I’ve identified that I have this trait in me… if I could just remember this when I get upset with Joel or get obsessed over stupid wedding details that won’t matter in 5 years.

  9. Job Description

    This ER nurse thing takes….

    stamina (don’t expect to sit down in 12 hours and maybe go pee just once)

    block all emotions (the 2 month old that didn’t make it, or the drunk that called you a bitch…yeah, that can’t affect you)

    always have a game plan (what if that the bleeding gets worse or the infection spreads..then i should do…..?)

    figure out whats more important (everyone wants a pillow and blanket but the person next door can’t breathe)

    expect interruptions…all freakin day (why did all 5 people call the ambulance at the same exact time?)

    smile at ALL times (despite the stressful environment, not eating all day, getting puked on, and yelled at…no one likes a grumpy nurse)

    None of this was in the job description….its been a long 12 weeks

  10. i’m on a mission to find this EXACT outfit…any help would be appreciated :)
