    Morning, Grace. :Melody: Hope you have a great evening. I know all about those trees and the winds. The tornadoes here just about killed my front yard. One tree did kill my car.....

    Hello from work - it is 11:30 p.m. and I wanna go home.

    Just 3 1/2 hours to go. Just got an admit from the ER so that makes it 5 patients and one RN (me) and one LVN and one CNA.

    I just ate a protein bar and drank some coffee - but those Fritos and hot chili cheese dip in front of the LVN is looking mighty good

    Happy Saturday - almost - from the West Coast. I'll be sleeping most of Saturday away.

    Ewww, Steph, I'd be letting the LVN have that food all to her/himself!!

    No way could I eat those foods at that hour.

    Hope the next few hours pass quickly for you. I used to HATE nights! I'm a morning person.

    Cheers......

    I just realise... if you've got 3 1/2 hours left of your shift, that would mean you finish at 0300, right? That's an unusual, (for here in Oz anyway), shift. Never heard of one encompassing those hours.

    Hi everyone!

    Siri - Thank you for the yummy breakfast!

    Grace - I hope you get some good spring weather your way soon, and that the wind calms down!

    Steph - I hope the rest of your shift goes well!

    I worked today, my 3rd shift on the unit. And I think today was the worst so far. This morning I just felt SO STUPID It really sucked. My preceptor really is nice, but there were times I could tell she was getting so frustrated with me ..... like I'm so stupid or something. I'm a brand new nurse, I don't understand how I'm supposed to know this stuff without them teaching me??!!?! And that's what they act like sometimes, like I'm stupid for not knowing things. Like I was trying to get a blood glucose on a baby, and those are so different than with an adult ..... I have such a hard time with it for some reason. I almost started crying. I kept thinking I was doing nothing right .... everything was wrong. It got a little better as the day went on but I still just felt bad. When we went to lunch she asked me how I was doing .... I told her I felt like I was having a hard time getting the hang of stuff, like I couldn't do anything right. She told me she thought I was doing great .... that I was jumping in and helping out, that I wasn't afraid like some people are. She said not to take things personally if she ever makes it seem like she's getting irritated.

    SIGH. I don't know .... I guess I'll be ok. I knew when I started that this was going to be really hard and that it's normal to feel like you want to quit. Well I really did want to quit, I wanted to just not come back

    Thanks for listening .... I just tell everyone at home that it's going just fine .... they'd never understand.

    Siri - your greeting makes this page sooo big I have to scroll across to read the entire message.

    Grace - we work 3-3 shifts here. I usually work 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. No one wanted to work a real night shift or do 3 med passes/3 meals on days. So a nurse came up with 3-3. It even came up for a vote again a few years ago and no one wanted to change it.

    I work part-time thank goodness. Except for when I answer my cell phone even when I can see it is the hospital calling.

    Night shift has a great amount of food - when we come in at 2:45 a.m. we usually have to clean up the room we do report in because there is so much food. Sometimes they even barbeque outside the ER. Tonight, there is all kinds of dips and chips, cookies, candy, cake, etc.

    I think it has something to do with staying awake -

    Hey, Rain,:Melody:

    That preceptor would not have told you those things if she didn't mean them. I'll bet you are doing just fine. It is normal to have those feelings .....

    Hang in there, hon.

    Why are you still up period???

    We got another admit - I gave this one to the LVN after I did the initial assessment.

    It is almost 1 a.m. Only 2 more hours.
