I'm Jess. I am a travel nurse. I am a vegan... not one of the preachy ones though. Currently traveling the US... I've been to SoCal, WA, NC, CT, and next stop CO. I love ellipses. I have a love/hate relationship with working out, though it leans more towards love.

All my stories are purposefully vague and generalized to protect the guilty... and to abide by HIPPA.

I make none of the .gifs I use and gather them from various sources. I have no idea who makes them, if I did, I would undoubtably give them props. Thank you all the .gif makers out there... without you, my humor could not be adequately expressed. You're the best.

 

"You only work three days a week. That’s so awesome."

Except they’re 12 hour shifts. In that time I will probably get yelled at for things that aren’t my fault, have shit thrown at me (hopefully not literally, but sometimes), give all the meds, chart everything I do (if it wasn’t charted, it wasn’t done), and any multitude of super fun things that make those three shifts more than enough for a week. 

Actual coded problem on my patient’s chart

High risk heterosexual behavior

Which means there has to be a ‘High risk homosexual behavior’.

Wtf? Right?

The comment to that problem was “Frequent sexual encounters with prostitutes using crack cocaine”.

Got some winners tonight.

I’m losing patience with my screaming dementia patient. 7 hours to go. :/

Bored. Bored. Bored. No patients to chase through the halls tonight.

Jealous that you’re allowed nose rings!

5th hospital I’ve worked at with it. No one has said a word to me about it. I think it’s because I rock it so hard. :P

Med floor tonight.
Arrived expecting the worst, a handful of crazy patients. Instead I have three oriented patients. Two are essentially independent and the third is a poor LOL with a full body rash after a reaction to vanco. And they’re all sleeping.
I should do my care plans but I really don’t fucking want to. Instead I’m fucking around on my phone. Including the dating app that I reactivated last week out of boredom. There’s some weird guys in Denver… just like everywhere else.
I don’t want to date, I just want to be in a chill, happy relationship… preferably with Tom Hiddleston. That’s not unreasonable. Right?
