Very early in my nursing career, I've learned that there are some things the only way to deal with is to chuckle about them. After all, laughing at ourselves for being cracked airheads is better than having a meltdown in front of everybody. 

In this episode, I will share a bit of my family background, where my finding the funny in not amusing situations ability comes from, and my first steps in nursing school. We will also go through the moments that made me realize my humor would help me cope in my nursing career without driving me insane and some funny situations in my first weeks of training in a hospital. 

Tune in to Episode 2 of Overnight Observations to learn a bit more about me, the origin of my sense of humor, and how it saved me more than once. 

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

  • The astonishing demonstration of love and appreciation from Hospital Corporations during National Nurses Week (2:12)
  • A bit of background about my family and me (5:56) 
  • How my father used to scare potential boyfriends with army stories (8:06)
  • The comedians I enjoyed watching and learning from them (8:52)
  • The haunting nightmare about washing my hands (11:08)
