March 18th: Ok, because I am a nurse I feel I can say this, we are a unique breed and one of our favorite things are the big, juicy ones. Get your mind out of the gutter. We just really like those big, juicy veins to start IV's in. However, me myself enjoy the challenging IV start that others seem to shy away from. Nothing makes a nurse feel more confident in themselves then to start a challenging IV.

March 17th: This is the lovely dry erase board at my work. To the left in the area you can't see are the names of our patients as well as their physicians. The area you see here are the names of me and my wonderful co-workers. Our names can appear anywhere from 3 to 6 times on this board depending on how many patients we have on our floor and how well we are staffed. We usually prefer the slow nights where our name only appears about 3 times but that has been wishful thinking lately!
