Unpaid Working Interviews are Illegal
I can't understand why unpaid working interviews for veterinary techs/nurses/assistants are still the norm in veterinary medicine. They are illegal. Could you imagine if that's how other professions interviewed? Picture a surgeon needing to prove themselves by performing an ACL repair. What about a dental hygienist cleaning your teeth as part of the interview process? Stop the madness.
Taping in a Peripheral IV Catheter
Let's talk about how to tape in a peripheral IV catheter. There are hundreds of ways that are effective, but let's make sure you know the guidelines of catheter taping. For a PDF with photos of how I tape in catheters please copy/paste this link: https://www.vetteamtraining.com/_files/ugd/13319d_6d57ea6218e74ffa8308e13f21f538f3.pdf Don't forget to like my channel!
Stop Being a Knowledge Hoarder
"No one trained me. They need to figure it out by themselves." "It's not my job to train" Ugh...these people are all too common in our hospitals. In this quick vlog I rant about the knowledge hoarders in the veterinary industry. These are the individuals who feel they are too good to help educate others. It's actually everyone's job to train and help others! I know I wouldn't be here today without those who helped teach me along the way.
Death by Title
I've been focusing on the importance of having title protection and not using a title you haven't earned, but now I'm going to switch it up. Are you suffering from Death by Title? Do you feel you need/want a title in order to be successful (manager, supervisor, lead)? Too many chase titles and ruin their career because they felt like it's necessary to have a certain title to be successful. Stop chasing titles. Chase your passion instead.
Stop Lying to Yourself: Setting Boundaries & the Guilt
You want to set boundaries, but every time you try to you feel guilty. Did you know that the feeling of guilt is a liar that lives inside your head? In this quick vlog I talk about the common guilt-liar that lives inside all of us and how to shut it down so you can learn to set healthy boundaries.
