Right about now... our units are getting flooded with the newest class of nurse graduates! 👶😷
Personally, I love the energy! ...The shift from discussing burnout, to just sharing knowledge and being excited about each new procedure, and seeing learning opportunities everywhere is awesome! 💪💕
That said, the rush through ACLS protocols rarely gives you the confidence you need to properly jump in confidently in your first few code blue situations. So here goes: 💉
When you hear a nurse yell "I need help in here!" It's typically either a crashing or (combative, or self extubated) patient. Always. Respond. Fast! 💉💉
Grab the crash cart before calling the doctor if a patient is crashing. ACLS protocol is the same regardless of whether the doctor is there or not and the priority is to get the patient to ROSC. Time is brain. Seconds matter.
Always make sure that the Ambu bag is connected to oxygen. This sounds so ridiculously intuitive but I can't tell you how many times I have attended codes especially on the floor where they are not as used to running codes.. and they forget (just initially, but again, every second counts) that the tubing on the Ambu bag has to be connected to wall oxygen. In Sim and in cert classes it is typically not practiced with oxygen connected so it can be missed in the first few moments of in vitro use. 💉💉💉💉
After The Madness of a code blue, if you can, try to help the direct care nurse clean up. It's usually a total disaster and everyone is pumped about helping during a code but that nurse is going to struggle to catch up with charting and managing the post care, and your contribution will be dramatically appreciated!! #nursingschool#nurse#nursingstudent#codeblue#doctor

We had some fun with microscopes in class today.
Picture #1 is Simple Squamous Epithelium.
Picture #2 is a sample of Cardiac Muscle.
Picture #3 is a Pseudo Ciliated Columnar Epithelium.
Pretty cool in my opinion! It took us forever to get pictures through the microscope, but it was totally worth it! Look at these beauties!😍💉🤓💕 #anatomy#microscope#muscles#epithelium#tissues#cells#nurselife
