Horoscopes just for Nurses!
Respect is a reciprocal relationship. Hold firm to your boundaries in a week where doctors demand to be handled with kid gloves, patients tell you you’re the most sadistic being to ever walk the face of the planet, and there’s just nobody who can fill four understaffed shifts but you. Things improve marginally after Thursday, but it will be hard not to let the doctors get your goat.
More than three surprising things will happen this week, Scorpio! We hope you’re prepared. Remember that you don’t have to handle everything alone: draw on appropriate resources and share the load as much as possible.
What’s worse, Sagittarius – a patient who unhooks everything to go for a smoke — or the one who comes back and tries to hook themselves back up before you notice? Understanding the full range of possibilities makes it easier to keep perspective in what is likely to be a rough week.
Watchful and wary, Capricorn has a week full of near-misses and what-ifs ahead. Clear communication is essential; there are parties who have their own agendas. Remember that when a visitor just ‘happens’ to have Grandma’s pills in their hand…
You’re surrounded by sick people this week, Aquarius — runny noses, high temperatures, horrid coughs as far as the eye can see — and that’s just your co-workers!
Nothing bonds nurses like sharing anti-anxiety medications…I mean, chocolate and coffee! Look forward to a week full of bonding opportunities!
Memories dominate your stars this week, Aries: did you remember to sign out that chart? Did you remember to log that order? Did you remember to disable the call light in bed six? Keep track of the important details and life will be easier.
There is only one thing you can control, Taurus, and that’s your attitude. Hold onto that through a week full of twists and turns, and you’ll be just fine.
When in doubt, snap the incriminating picture of your NM when you see her out on the town. It makes getting that vacation time much easier. More ethical Geminis might choose to delete the pic — but you don’t have to let anyone know that, do you?
Never underestimate the power of one well placed whoopie cushion to change the mood, Cancer. This week is your chance to shake things up a bit; create joy and laughter whenever possible. Your smile will make a difference.
What does a 375-pound, 6-foot tall male nurse do to stop others from ‘borrowing’ his stethoscope? Why, he gets one in bright pink! Innovative thinking appeals to creative Leo; go outside of the box to get your way!
Fresh beginnings always cheer you up: If you can’t shake these doldrums, go to the nursery and check out all the babies. If that doesn’t do the trick, listen to them cry for a while — and rejoice that your patients at least can say what’s wrong!
