Letโ€™s play spot the difference between photos?  

Photo #1 : 

*shrugged shoulders: the entire hospital felt so foreign & I felt out of place 

*โ˜๏ธ moments of doubt wondering: would I be a good nurse? 

*curious: how I would impact patients as a clinic RN?

*change: I underestimated how much starting a career, in a new state, in a pandemic was going to affect me 

Photo #2 

*open body posture โœŒ๐Ÿพ: feel so comfortable in my skin & my role in the hospital 

*โ˜๏ธ less moments of doubt: I am a good nurse!!! I challenge myself, expect to learn every day, and have compassion for my patients

*impact: RN clinic role centers on patient advocacy & empowering parents to care for their children at home

*I have learned: change is a constant, resilience is a requirement, and joy comes from within
