Never have I thought that I would have an inkling of an interest in becoming a mental health nurse, but after having more patient interaction and seeing clients appreciate me for just being there to help every week for 10 weeks made me realize how much I love direct patient care and keeps me more excited about my future career as a nurse. I learned so much. Also, a client drew a portrait of me! 😂 Not finalizing that I want to be a psychiatric nurse, but it was definitely one of the most unexpected enjoyable and rewarding terms. I am excited for the new upcoming terms!
One big take away for me was THERAPEUTIC COMMUNICATION. As simple as it sounds, it can get difficult and can get awkward to practice:
-Offer self.
-Don’t ask “why....” Qs
-Clarify
-Reflect.
-Silence.
-Open ended Qs
-Don’t suggest things
-Don’t beat around the bush and directly ask for clear communication.

Posted @withrepost@levtherapy After taking 28 quizzes, 21 exams/practicals, writing 26 papers/assignments, and partaking in 5 group presentations... our first trimester is complete✅ The past three months were filled with moments of joy, anxiety, humor, sadness, and everything in between. Moment of truth: there were many days when I cried because of stress, an overwhelming workload, or a grade I received on an exam. Looking back, everything unfolded perfectly. Every “failure” was actually a precursor for future success. After all, what would the purpose of going to school be if you already knew how to do everything? I am grateful for what I’ve learned these past 15 weeks, and look forward to continuing my journey with my Pink fam🌸💗 Two week break leggo🙌🏼 #westcoastuniversity #wcuproud #wcucgs

Passion,

a burning desire to help others,
an enduring will to overcome obstacles that may pass,
kindled against tides of fate,
I've conquered
from which I arose, anew

Through passion we attain our goals. As time passed in my life, I set up a plan and saw through to it. I would not have been able to overcome change if it were not my passion to do so. Through nursing is where I found my passion. To help others is my passion. Passion is embedded on my skin in the form of art. It is expressed through my thoughts, through my words, through my actions.

THIS. I DID THIS. I WORKED SO HARD FOR 𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐒. ⁣

These last 10 weeks have been absolutely brutal. I started this term grieving the loss of one my grandma whopassed away the week of my finals last term. We had her funeral the only weekend I had off in between terms and I started off the term with a heavy heart, but a goal of making it a good one in my grandma's honor. This term was demanding. It was definitely the hardest term. I have been through thus far. I constantly felt like I was drowning and no matter what I did, I could not reach the surface.⁣

Almost halfway through this term I found out I was pregnant. I had an IUD so the processing this was difficult, scary and shocking. I was on activity limitations, constant monitoring and still had to manage life while navigating this. The pregnancy was ectopic, non-viable.(This made me sad) It required an emergency surgery and methotrexate shots (chemo drug). Over the course of a few weeks I was processing and dealing with so much. I didn't think I was going to make it through school on top of all of this. My body felt terrible. I couldn't workout, I could barely coach, I sat in class while being taught high-risk pregnancy topics and just cry.⁣

I was shocked to see these grades. It made me realize that, 1. life does not stop. We're going to go through HARD times, but we have to make the choice to keep going. 2. It showed me that I am absolutely resilient. I am strong & I am capable of overcoming and rising up.⁣

Could not have done this without the loving support and encouragement from my husband, parents and friends. and of course without the love and grace from my heavenly father whom shows up every-time even when you think you are so alone.⁣

I DID IT GUYS.⁣

✌🏽 out to mental health&physical assessment, off to OB🤱🏻! Something I learned this term would have to be that patience is 🔑. Working with individuals with mental illness, we tend to forget that they are people too with different stories. It’s our job as nurses to make sure that we don’t treat them any different and we hold true to providing them the best care possible. 👌🏽 Also realized that not everyone will accept you or like you and that’s OK. What matters the most in the end is your journey and that you stay true to who you are; whether you are a student or not. ✨

This is me and my mom. Fun fact: my mom is also a nurse! I have memories from when I was very young of going to her nursing school classes with her, looking for the grossest pictures in her texts books, and going to school on career day dressed in scrubs. I’m so lucky to have had my mom to look up to growing up, and even to ask for guidance now. It’s so insane to me that we both have the same career. Our favorite hobby is venting about work life over happy hour. I hope to one day be as cool as a mom and badass of a nurse as my mama 🦋 #pedsnurse #pedsrn #westcoastuniversity #wcuproud #medsurgnurse #newnurse #newrn #nursingschool #nursingschoolproblems #nursingschoolprobs #rn #bsn #bsnstudent #msn #babynurse #nurseresidency #nclex #nclexrn #studygram #nursingstudent #nursesofinstagram #nurse #nurseblogger #nurselifern #nightnurse

Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage. It is not about winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. 💫 It is time for me to be vulnerable with you, shall we? •

I have been stagnant with my fitness progress and slacking on my graduate schoolwork. I’ve been consistently working day after day that I slacked off from May-July. I took a step back, reflected, and had to create a new game plan to get my goals done. I pushed my graduation date, had to start over with my fitness goals, and etc. • •

That’s the reality. Sometimes in life, you deal with mishaps, bumps, and setbacks. You have to reflect, accept, and then eventually, sit down and set a game plan to get your goals 👏🏼 It’s not about finishing, it’s about the journey you took to accomplish your goals. You can either say one day or just start right now in this moment you are reading this to say, “Day one. Today marks day one.” You choose when to start, why not start now?” •

🏥💉Geriatrics went by so fast! I am so blessed to have had such an amazing clinical group and an amazing clinic professor! They are all the definition on how teamwork should work! I got to practice and perform so many skills like starting and working with IVs, giving basically all types of meds, obtaining specimens, working with gastrostomy tubes, giving education, and so much more! This clinical group along with the nurses at the hospital I was at made me feel so much more confident about my nursing abilities and were so amazing at helping me through this whole process! Aside from clinic, I also had great professors for geriatrics and nutrition along with an amazing cohort I get to have! I’m so thankful for all of the things I have learned and mastered so far! Now on to OB! 🤰🏼🤱🏼🎀🧸 #nursing #futurern #futurernbsn #futurefnp #westcoastuniversity #wcu #wcunursing #geriatrics #obstetrics #blessed

With my first term of core wrapping up I wanted to let you know what’s been happening. This term has had its ups and downs thats for sure. With clinical in a Snif I was given the chance to have more compassion, more respect, and more gratitude towards the elderly by the end of my rotation I was sadden to leave some of my patients behind. Fundamentals was no joke, I had moments of FOMO, moments of procrastination, and moments I wanted to give up. I questioned if this was all worth it, and it’s only the beginning, but I’m glad to say I pulled it off with the grade I wanted. Next up med surg 1 and pharm. #westcoastuniversity #wcu #nursingschoolproblems #bsn #rn #nursingstudent #nursingschool
