Nursing nutrition definitions
“100 Calorie Pack” — Whatever can fit in one hand.
“Breakfast” — the most important meal of the day, even if it comes at 1 pm and you started work at 7 am.
“Lunch” — will probably be your “dinner” as well, if you are lucky. Hope you brought something that is calorie packed. Think Ensure mixed with peanut butter mixed with bananas. Actually, that might be kinda tasty.
“Delicious” — any food that is free. Usually left over from some meeting upstairs. Somehow chow mein, cantaloupe, and spaghetti sounds like a totally logical meal.
“Dessert” — chewable antacid tablets from eating above combination of food.
Rebekah Child attended the University of Southern California for her bachelor's in nursing and decided to brave the academic waters and return for her master's in nursing education, graduating in 2003 from Mount St. Mary's. Rebekah has also taught nursing clinical and theory at numerous Southern California nursing schools and has been an emergency nurse since 2002. She is currently one of the clinical educators for an emergency department in Southern California and a student (again!) in the doctoral program at the University of California, Los Angeles.
