In short if it is magnet certified... you want to work there and you want to get care there.
It was a two day conference with a ton of information that I'm still processing through. Unfortunately, I left with more questions than answers and in many ways felt like it was management's "Hoo rah!" as opposed to a championing of staff nurses becoming involved in this process. (The whole premise of the magnet system is about self governance, higher autonomy and a decentralized organizational structure.)
At any rate, I'm exhausted and to top it all off I had to switch my sleep schedule to go to it (us night shift folks don't like getting up early... it's why we work nights) and now its 4am and I have to work a 12 hour day shift today. *sigh*
Oh well. When things become exhausting I just take a look at these and I close my eyes and picture myself here
or maybe here
and life seems a little bit better... quieter after that.
Happy Friday Friends! The weekend is almost here!
