Don't Curse the Nurse!

Sharing support with stories & humor

Counting to ten and that one coworker…

“The thousand mysteries around us would not trouble but interest us, if only we had cheerful, healthy hearts.”                        
Friedrich Nietzsche

It is a mystery why one of my coworker’s continues to micromanage me when my orientation was over 30 months ago. As a matter of fact, I am now a preceptor. My salary has gone up twice since starting. I have a cheerful heart when I first get to work.

So, why she cut me off and decided I was unable to tell the recovery room nurse that all we found were hemorrhoids just blows my mind. By 2:00 pm, I grew obsessed with wondering what the ingredients were for making a proper Long Island Ice Tea. It was a long day.

I need Nietsche to come work with me, and remind me that she is just a mystery, nothing more than that, no threat, not one tenth as important as the patients or doing the job well.

I need to resurrect Nietsche. Nothing phased him. I wonder how’d he feel about wearing blue?
