Finally arrived. Things changed. Waves got bigger the enviroment more open and the wind a lot stronger. Before midnight i took myself to the beach. On the one side of the sand dune was this loud atlantic ocean and on the other side was this calm and shallow lagon. The moon did his best to give me the best sight. I set my timelapse to around 90 minutes, put some music in my ears and just layed there.
I am officially addicted to @zombiesrungame I guess.
Can hardly call it a run, was really exhausting. I often have trouble with training after night shifts, but even if I dont do my best, it still feels good to move a bit. Also still felt cute in my @famme leggins. Guess my favorite color 💙 🤣
Also I wanted to show you my running shoes because the colors just make me so happy!
Charlottesville isn't generally known as an up-all-night king of town, but there are plenty of people here who keep things humming along while the rest of us are sleeping. For this week's C-VILLE cover story, photographer Eze Amos teamed up with arts writer Erin O'Hare to document the folks who work the night shift. What Amos and O'Hare discovered was a mix of camaraderie and loneliness, satisfaction and boredom, and a lot of hard work—from a refugee who juggles two full-time jobs to a woman who answers 9-1-1 calls (and helped deliver a baby over the phone a couple weeks ago). 📷: @ezeamosphotography#cville#charlottesville#virginia#nightshift
Autumn is my favourite time of year - I'm obsessed with kicking leaves and jumping into puddles!
I am trying to keep up with daily exercise, despite feeling constantly exhausted due to shift work, and the darker, colder days don't help. After only 4hrs sleep this morning, I had to force myself to go for a post-night-shift walk and I'm so glad I did! It cleared my head, allowed me to listen to my audio book for 40mins whilst admiring the beautiful colours from the still-budding flowers in neighbours' gardens.
Importantly, as a shift worker, I need to ensure I get daily doses of sunlight, to keep me happy, balanced and motivated. Let's hope I have the energy to get through the nightshift tonight!
Thursday Dec 5 from 6-9 @colab_at_the_pod
Maybe you’ve always wanted to improve your illustration skills. Maybe you have an idea for an ice cream delivery app that you never been able to get around to building. Or maybe you’re working the daily grind and you just need a little extra inspiration. Whatever it might be, why not set aside some time to work on those projects and hold yourself more accountable?
Come work the Night Shift!
We’re a group of creative professionals that burn the midnight oil together in an open, collaborative environment. We thrive on the camaraderie and feedback that comes with it — where ideas and critique are not only welcome, they are encouraged. All it costs is a few hours of your time. Just bring your computer, your sketchbook, or whatever else you need to make something awesome.
Our friends at @colab_at_the_pod are opening their awesome space for us. There will be a round table for more collaborative folk and individual areas if you're trying to get in the zone. We encourage everyone to network with other attendees, get feed back on current work and offer feedback if the opportunity presents itself!
Light refreshments will be provided so grab dinner before hand or take a break during the night and snag something.
See you there!

Schätze jemanden, wenn er da ist. Nicht, wenn er weg ist.
Another day in theatre! 🏥 the senior scrub nurse taught me how to scrub.
A total hip replacement from # NOF
A hemi hip replacement from # NOF
A laceration washout
A screw removal from exposed metalwork through skin
I’m loving theatres. And I even got to attend a major trauma call down in ED
My blood sugars behaved (for the most part) is anyone else a diabetic scrub nurse? How do you handle your blood sugars whilst in scrub? 🥴

“do you LIKE working nights?”
“how do you do it!?!” “when do you see your family?!”
these are questions i get a lot when people im a mom + a night shift nurse. we’re sharing how we balance family life + working night shift over on the blog - head over to @thenovaturientcollective + follow 🌿
HELLO SUNSHINE! ☀️ Saying goodbye to Night Shift- kinda sorta! I’ve worked the night shift my entire 8 year nursing career plus the 1 year spent working night shift as CNA while in school. 9 years of night shift and my body has been screaming at me and begging me to stop. At the beginning of the year I changed specialties and joined the Emergency Transport Team, a very small department. With this switch I knew day shift was not going to be an option for me for a very, very long time. But it was my dream job so I was more than willing to make the sacrifice for nights.
With how busy our team is, we’re adding a 3rd swing shift team. I just found out that I was chosen for swing shift and I am BEYOND happy! Swing shift is typically 1pm-1am. This is a HUGE improvement from getting off work at 7:30am. Swing shift is also actually more ideal for me than day shift because training at the gym would be really hard to do when working 7am-7pm. Now I can wake up at a reasonable hour and have plenty of time to workout + run errands before starting work AND still get off at night and sleep when it’s dark. For 12 hour shifts, this is absolutely the best case scenario for me! It’s going to be a few months before this change takes place but I can’t wait to see how much better I feel!
Working Night Shift is associated with some pretty significant health problems including:
* Insomnia * Increased cardiovascular disease risk
* Increased cancer risk
* Higher incidence of diabetes
* Metabolic disease
* Depression & Mood disorders
* GI problems (ulcers, GERD, nausea, constipation, diarrhea)
* Fertility Problems
* Decreased quality of life
* General feeling of being unwell
I know first hand that night shift has taken a toll me. Really excited to see how this not only effects my overall well being, but my powerlifting. More gainz please!
Curated pictures are beautiful but so is a raw 3 am selfie.
I’ve sacrificed every weekend for a year and a half to work nights as a patient care technician, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My nurse coworker recently asked me if I liked my job.
I said, “I love my job. I love helping people, making a difference, learning, and feel I’m my best self at work.”
So although this photo didn’t take hours behind the scenes to produce, in this moment I am happy. ❤️
🅰️BLOOD TRANSFUSION RXS🅾️
When administering blood products to your patient, monitor for the following signs and symptoms of a transfusion reaction:
1️⃣ Fever - a fever of 38-38.9 (100.4-102.02) with no other symptoms during the transfusion can indicate a febrile non-hemolytic transfusion reaction.
A fever PLUS other symptoms (e.g. shivering, hypotension) can indicate a febrile non-hemolytic reaction, a bacterial contamination, or an acute hemolytic transfusion reaction
2️⃣ Utricaria (hives), itching, or rash - if less than 2/3 of the body is involved with no other symptoms, this may indicate a minor allergic reaction.
If more than 2/3 of the body is involved with no other symptoms, this may indicate a severe allergic reaction.
If these symptoms are accompanied by other symptoms (e.g. dyspnea, hypotension), this may indicate anaphylaxis
3️⃣ Dyspnea/decreased SpO2 - this symptom + hypertension may indicate transfusion associated circulatory overload
This symptom + hypotension may indicate bacterial contamination, acute hemolytic transfusion reaction, or anaphylaxis
⚠️In case of a transfusion reaction⚠️
Stop the transfusion and start running your rescue line of normal saline using a new administration set (you can see the rescue line ready to go in this image)
Check vital signs
Recheck the patient’s name and blood unit # again
Remain with the patient
Notify the physician
Treat the symptoms as ordered by the physician
Return the blood to the Blood Bank

Happy Tuesday, friends! Today is my last clinical of the semester. It’s been a wonderful 13 weeks on the Cardiac Stepdown Unit but that’s a wrap! The next time I’ll be on a clinical rotation will be in Obstetrics after Winter break! I’m ready to bring on the mommas and babies! 👶🏼
I think I’m going to take a semester off from school in spring. I basically haven’t been out of school since before pre-k. 🤣
I don’t want to have to worry about discussion posts or papers or quizzes or exams the month of my bachelorette weekend, my wedding or my honeymoon. I just want to be able to enjoy the moment and be as present as possible.
I only have 3 or 4 classes left to graduate so I’ll probably do 2 in summer and 2 in fall. There’s no incentive to get my BSN as quickly as possible anyway so I’m not worried about it. I’m tired of rushing everything just to get it done. It’s EXHAUSTING.
Just wanted to update you guys on my RN to BSN journey in case you were wondering where I was at! I originally was trying to get it done in 1 year but 4-5 classes a semester with full time nursing proved to be really really tedious 🤣 Sometimes slow is the way to go and I’m not sorry about it 💁🏻♀️😝
