At this stage, I come here to learn and share info. I use this site for research when I get off shift.
Just to gain a new perspective or better understanding of things. Maybe, I'll have a question about some condition and wonder what the nurses on AN have to say about...or if anyone's gone through it.
I want to be good at what I do and this site has a lot of knowledgeable - highly skilled - people. No joke!
Not too long ago, I had my first hospice pt and I was researching about 'comfort measures' in the Hospice specialty section.
'To turn or not turn'.
'Clearing up misconceptions about morphine'.
TRUST ME -- that information came in handy! My pt's family member was on the phone with her sister discussing roxanol and said something to the effect of 'yes - they gave him the morphine to sedate him, I guess'. The first question out of her mouth when she got off the phone? "Did I explain that correctly? He's sedated...because of the morphine?"
That was an opportunity to educate them.

It provided me with a way to relate to colleagues as I was searching for a job after being out of the field for 12 yrs.
I am back at work, and AN helped me tremendously as far as the current state of nursing, the interview process, etc.
I have laughed and cried while reading posts.
And I love the fact that I can post a question, and have expert responses within a few hrs. Thanks to all the nurses who post here!
Thank you, and keep up the good work!

I think that this site is fantastic and would not be what it is without all of the wonderful members who share their stories, experiences, and opinions!
