Ah, so you have decided to grow a beard; excellent news! So how do we start taking care of our new furry facial accessory?
“I’m not going to let you fail.” These are the words of my first nursing mentor Vicky. I had just been promoted after three months on the night shift to take charge of a long term care unit with 33 patients, three CNAs, and no unit clerk. I did have a director, Vicky, and those are words I still carry with me to this day. With one sentence she wiped away any apprehension I had about taking on this new job and also made me extremely confident.
