Nurse Practitioner

Nurse Practitioner

Code Bell

Boston, MA

Female, 34

I have been in the nursing field for 12 years. I have worked as a RN in an adult medical-surgical unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU). I went back to school to obtain my masters and now work as a nurse practitioner in a Pediatric CICU. These kids are sick. The issues can be straightforward or extremely complex. No patient is the same and no day is routine. I am lucky- I love my job (most of the time).

What was the most gory patient injury or ailment you ever saw? Are you horrified by this kind of stuff, or at this point, is it just "another day at the office?"

I am on the Depo Provera shot and I just recently took a drug test at my job. Benzo was located in my system. Could it be from my Depo. Because I’m a single mother of two and I’m not on any medication or anything else.
