What's in My Nursing Work Bag?

Well, folks, today we're digging through Adrianne's giant bag that she drags to her job as an intermediate pulmonary nurse. Unlike the very anti-climactic 'What's in My Pockets?" episode from a while back, this time she's got way more to dig through. You see, she's what you call an over-packer. Reserve your judgement as you listen and then go clean out your own bag, locker, car, or whatever. 

A Travel Nurse & Her Adventure Muppet: Pt 2

This week we dive back into Adrianne’s marathon call with her good friend and travel nurse Lindsay Dingbaum. Since they can get their gab on like pros, they covered a LOT of information like...

-The multifaceted nature of a nurse's emotions
-Advice for new travelers
-Narcotics and end-of-life-care: a nurse's discomfort
-Dealing with undesirable assignments
-Getting used to a new place as a traveler
-Designer scrubs (yes, they go there again)

...and a million other little things on their minds. 

Calling Patients Wrong Names, Relationships with Management, and Report Styles

In this conversation between Adrianne and old pal Andrew Craig they topic-hop, as usual. They discuss the horrors of calling a patient by the wrong name, more comparisons between day and night shift (since Andrew has officially been working days), relationships with management, and personal preferences in getting and giving report. If you've been paying attention, you will also know that they talk about a hundred other little things along the way.
