Welcome to the December 2008 Nursing Recognition Ceremony! These are the sights around the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, especially in the College of Nursing! Nursing Education Building Dean Rosemary Smith, RN, PhD. College of Nursing Administration Dr. Jambunathan, Dr. Marnocha, Dr. Stewart, Dean Smith, and Dr. Huebscher An old fashion wheel chair that is in the lobby of the College of Nursing Building If I can stop one heart from breaking I shall not live in vain If I can ease one life the aching or cool one pain or help one fainting robin onto his nest again I shall not live in vain ~Emily Dickinson One of the mannequins in the Learning Lab A Pediatric Mannequin Arm used for IV starts with colored water to make it more “real!” A Nurse's Wish To be a nurse requires dedication, with years of study and preparation. I pray for guidance and humbly ask that I will do well at this chosen task. When illness strikes or pain demands, and a life is placed within my hands, give me compassion, knowledge and skill to do the things that comfort and heal. Suffering makes patients' fears grow worse and they seek reassurance from their nurse. Help me see things from their point of view and always know what is best to do. May I have a part in some small way, in restoring good health to someone today. ~Helen Bush Jeanne Hiatt, RN, BSN Lab Instructor Blood administration practice area Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so. Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today. A student attempting to start an IV on a practice arm Simulation Lab – he actually talks! Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration. This capable person looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better. Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life. I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will unselfishly share this gift with others. I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others. Our pregnant SIMwoman She really has a baby, too! SIMbaby has a heart beat and can have a variety of diagnoses! Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path and to revel in the mysteries I encounter. I will face challenges with courage and determination. I will overcome what barriers there may be which hinder my quest for growth and self- improvement. Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love. Where the skills learning began! Isolation cart and an exam “room” Beginning today I walk with renewed faith in human kindness. Regardless of what has gone before, I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future. Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart. I will welcome new experiences. I will meet new people. I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world. But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles. Brenda Garza Business Specialist Sue Robl Program Assistant Dr. Chappy and Dr. Marnocha Beginning today I am responsible for my own happiness and I will do things that make me happy . . . admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath . . . pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures. Beginning today I will learn something new; I will try something different; I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer. I will change what I can and the rest I will let go. I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be. Beginning today. And every day. Many of us had pre-nursing classes in this building… Halsey Science Center and Buckstaff Planetarium… where we had more pre-nursing classes! Nurses are angels in comfortable shoes. ~Author Unknown Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon. ~Dag Hammarskjold Caring is the essence of nursing. ~Jean Watson A building primarily occupied by nursing students December 13, 2008!
