Being a busy nurse means you often feel depleted…and hungry.
Do Any of These Scenes Feel Familiar?
> You find yourself mentioning food in all of your conversations.
> You think about your hunger and get a little irritable…okay, VERY irritable.
> You hear about free food in the break room, and, well…
> Then, your hunger gets the best of you and you take more than your fair share.
> You see an opportunity to eat and you go for it. (It’s okay. We won’t tell!)
> You find a small snack in your pocket and try to make it last…and last…
> You drink tons of water in the hope that it will fix your hunger problem.
> It doesn’t.
> You get a little emotional after hearing the rhythmic sounds of your empty stomach.
> You sit down to eat, but no matter how starved you are, you put the needs of you patients first. Always.
Because you may be hungry, but you’re a hungry nurse.
