I hosted a party for some of my co-workers who were heading off to the Critical Care Unit. In the last 4 months, 4B has lost our manager, lost 4 great nurses to the Critical Care Unit, and struggled to keep our morale up. Personally, I struggled with the idea of where my career is supposed to go as well. I just celebrated my fifth year at 4B and as a nurse this month! Do I apply for the manager's job, try for a spot in the ICU or ED, or do I keep working as a grass roots organizer and motivator for my floor? Ultimately, I decided I was not up for the rigors of applying for a new job currently, but kudos to those that were. I will keep on Keeping It Real at the bedside. Here are some photos of some of my awesome co-workers - and our great backyard that we just finished renovating!
