Wanted: PICU APN
Description: 5'2'', blonde hair, blue eyes
Last seen: Running around the crazy labyrinth also known as the
PICU, then on to Rochester, MN for a few day Critical Care conference
Most likely to be: completely hiding out at home, in bed
Oh yes...the last few weeks have certainly been crazy.
Just when I thought the PICU was going to have a bit of a lull, it completely picked back up and caught us by surprise.
We not only had a ton of kids come in, but we had a ton of sick kids!
And then on top of putting in a bunch of hours, I thought it would be a great idea to go to the exciting city of Rochester, MN (sorry for any of you living there!) for a Critical Care conference.
While the conference was a great learning experience, it was very different than what I expected. Namely, I thought since it was an SCCM (Society of Critical Care Medicine) conference, it would have tons of people there.
But "tons" translated into exactly 16. Yes, a very large, very full 16 new APNs, PAs, residents and fellows.
I will probably write a post about this soon, because it was a great learning experience, but I'm gonna end the post here...I'm not ready to be "found" just yet!
So I'm going back to my comfy bed, in my comfy pants, and watching some football with the windows open to let in the crisp fall breeze and the warm sunshine in, until I must be "Found" tomorrow at work.
