    The new grad one I made for interns and students unfamiliar with our charting (print 2 sides, flip on long edge) and there's a time sheet on the back. I use a 1 page per pt brain, even though we take 6 pts. I just can't make enough notes on a multiple pt sheet.

    WOW. I'm working on developing a sheet for myself for my 2nd year ASN program clinicals. Your sheets are beautiful, and I think they'll be a big influence on what I end up using. Thank you!

    And thank you to everyone who has posted their brain sheets in this thread. I've downloaded them all so I can learn more about organizing myself and having better time management.

    I was just wondering if you still wanted to give out your 'brain sheets' idea?? I like the idea of crossing off the letters on the bottom...

    Thanks so much!

    I'm a new grad and i realized I need lots of reminders of what to keep track of for my patients.

    Hi, I have a question about the brain sheets. I am curious what lab values correspond with the weird little graphics? I know that you are supposed to use the shapes to organize your labs, but what lab values are supposed to go in each area/box? Kinda confusing question, but your help would be wonderful! Thanks!

    I don't use a 'brain sheet' because it could be mistaken that one has no brain

    I looked at several other people's and sort of combined them into what made sense for me (I can't figure out how to upload it here...so yeah). I still tweak it sometimes if I notice something is missing that I have to write down often Also as I chart thing I highlight them so I know that it is charted and done. This way I don't have to review my nurses notes, assessments, meds, etc. to make sure I did everything!

    Also I am one of those who uses a large 3-ring binder. I have dividers so each patient has a section. I also have one of those zipper pockets (like for pencils and such) that I put my meds in so they are all separated. Some of the larger things I have to toss in a box and leave down the hallway (we have "cubbies" which house a computer and a cabinet down each hall). I like to have a stash of things.
