Horoscopes just for Nurses!
Faced with choices on how to handle a difficult co-worker, you discover that conventional wisdom is to ‘kill them with kindness’. Please bear in mind that killing someone with kindness does NOT mean inflicting blunt trauma with stuffed animals…even if the stuffed animal is wearing scrubs and a tiny stethoscope!
Realizing the scope of your responsibility as a nurse can be overwhelming — but take a step back and make sure you’re not taking responsibility for things that are completely beyond your control!
Remember that you can learn from everyone — and sometimes what they’re teaching is that ignorance is bliss!
Don’t keep your mind so open that your intelligence falls out! This week will present you with opportunities to change how you view nursing — and how nursing views you. This is either exciting or terrifying. Good luck!
Courage and fortitude aren’t just for heroes, Libra — or maybe they are, and you’re more heroic than you’re giving yourself credit for. Bear in mind that victory is measured in small steps, such as those that take you from the parking lot into work! Hang in there — you can do it!
Want to lose 25 pounds in a hurry? Try emptying your pockets, Scorpio! You seem to be experiencing pockets/glove compartment/storage facility confusion again!
If only Home Care meant going to care for Homes…
The grass is always greener across the fence; the patients always nicer on another shift, the workload always less in another facility, the surgeon always less psychotic…well, no. They’re pretty much the same everywhere, but you knew that, didn’t you, Capricorn? Delight in the here and now, and let daydreaming dwell on more pleasant things than work!
Spiritual discoveries delight sensitive Aquarius, especially discovering that your cell phone is missing, meaning there’s not a ghost of a chance you’ll be called in!
Celebrate the positives this week, Pisces: you have a great opportunity to cheer up some colleagues who really need it and in the process will make yourself feel better!
Giving report can be the most challenging part of the day: try jazzing it up by adopting the mannerisms of your favorite journalist! What if you were Anderson Cooper? Jane Valez? Bill O’Reilly? Really old school? Pretend you’re Edgar R. Murrow!
You are always teaching: remember that student nurses are watching, whether you know it or not. The next generation of caregivers has YOU for an example. So make sure they learn how to hide in the bathroom or dodge NM phone calls from the best!
