I am a new nurse and right now I am very task oriented. I feel like I have no time for critical thinking and that all I do is pass meds and do charting. When report time comes, I often find that I have not looked for the right things and have no clue what is going on with my patient. Does anyone have a template or list of what to look for by diagnosis? For example, if someone has an "itis" you would look at the WBC and temperature. I work on a med/surg/tele floor so I see a lot of different diagnoses.
