Let’s play spot the difference between photos?
Photo #1 :
*shrugged shoulders: the entire hospital felt so foreign & I felt out of place
*☁️ 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
*open body posture ✌🏾: feel so comfortable in my skin & my role in the hospital
*☁️ 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
