The First Day

The first official day as charge yesterday. Still wielding my cane, which I have taken to calling my “paramedic-beating stick” or my “doctor-beating stick” or my “5 South Charge Nurse-beating stick”, as the case may be or as the mood strikes me.

How did it go?

I have to say . . . I was AWESOME. And the nurses working with me were AWESOME. And together we were so AWESOME that we were noticed by some Very Important Non-Emergency Department Personages and were publicly praised in front of my manager for our Complete and Utter Awesomeness.

Sorry, I can’t go into details.  Suffice to say, it was your typical emergency department meltdown/cluster. And did I mention, it was AWESOME?

It might have been one of the best days I have ever had as an RN. Truly.

    So happy you got the recognition you deserve! Nurse don’t get thanked enough for all they do. Good job!

    I am imagining you as a cane wielding force of sarcastic yet compassionate verbal assault!!! All hail and serve Charge TorEm, RN!

    It’s all downhill from here :)

    Kidding. Sort of… But seriously, congrats on the fabulous first day of charge!
