Welcome to our contests! Every month or so, we’re going to pick a new topic and ask for your submissions. The prizes? Well, it really depends on the contest. Sometimes we’ll give away one of our world famous Stressed Out Nurses T-shirts. Other times, we’ll give away a Quick-E clinical pocket guide or a Stressed Out book. Sometimes, but not often, we’ll give away money, scholarships, and vacations to Aruba. Okay, just scholarships.
Best “Make or Break” Moment
I’ve heard from many nurses that have had some tough moments throughout their careers. You know the one: It’s been a unbearably long shift, you’re tired, and something happens–a patient becomes unruly, you make a mistake, or something else sparks you to just simply feel the weight of your job all at once–the moment you hopefully make it through and are better for it. Our next contest is for the best “make or break” story. Tell us about that tough moment, how you handled it, and how that experience helps you be a better nurse. (Please remember to keep in mind HIPPA rules in your submission.) The winner will be the one with the most inspiring story and will receive his or her choice of Quick-E! Pocket Guides free, and your moment will be featured on the blog to inspire all of our readers!
Submit entries before June 1st! On that day, we’ll pick a winner!
Just put your entry into the “Comments” box and hit “Submit.” Good luck!
