My dreams are now goals.
I’ve move to the action part of them.
Dreams = Desired end product while Goals = Means to achieve dreams.
I wrote them down and now, I’m making them happen.
I’ll be in this nursing game until I retire at the ripe old age of
death 70…maybe… I’ll probably work a lil longer .
So, I’ll be returning to school in the fall.
My goal is to get my doctorate in nursing and then, move into research.
Time to leave you good patients alone.
Time to move into the quiet aspect of nursing,
where you don’t have patients trying to attack or fondle you.
or family members trying to call state boards on you.
I can’t really complain about that,
I’ve never had a family member try to call boards on me.
I believe in treating folks the way I’d want my family members to be treated.
I can be trusted to take care of your family.
Because of that, I usually get the opposite end of the spectrum,
folks tend to just love me.
But, I’m getting old,
getting bored with this part of nursing.
Time to move on to something fresh.
In my nursing career span I’ve seen,
A nurse get beat down by a CNA with a mop…y’all remember that post?
If you missed it, just go into the nursing category to the right…it’s in there.
I’ve also seen a pregnant nurse get attacked by a patient,
a nurse get hit upside the head with a bottle by a patient,
doctors throw charts at nurses,
family members wanting to fight nurses,
and a whole lotta other stuff.
Yeah, its brutal…
it ain’t all Florence Nightingale.
Sometimes, it’s A Nightmare on Elm Street.
I never had any of that drama though,
No siree, Bob.
Never had a chart thrown at me.
People know who to play with…that’s all I’m gonna say about that matter.
I’ve been goosed by a few patients though,
been asked out by a few male patients…and a few female ones too.
But it’s time for the quiet part of my career to begin.
The kids are pretty much out the way.
They’re at that stage where, they’re out of my hair but, not out of my pockets.
I don’t know how long it’s gonna take for me to complete my goal but, all of my ducks are in a row.
I’m just waiting for the fall to roll around.
I can’t wait to get started!
